About the property

Historic Victorian home with a private guestroom (own outside entrance) and attached private full bath. Walking distance to downtown antique shops, grocery, restaurants, and Southern Virginia University. Includes continental breakfast.

Appalachian Trail, Blue Ridge Parkway, and Lexington are all only minutes away by car. Other local attractions include Washington & Lee University, Virginia Military Institute, Lee Chapel, Stonewall Jackson home, Virginia Horse Center, and the Natural Bridge.

Breakfast: The in-room kitchenette is stocked with breakfast items (milk, muffins, cereal, fruit, coffee, etc). There are a number of great breakfast places located within a 10 minute drive.

Guest access: Private outside entrance to your own self-contained guest suite from the wrap-around porch. Enjoy the sunsets from the rocking chairs on the front porch. NOTE: There is a door from the guest room into the main home; it has door locks on both sides of the door and is sealed shut.

Interaction with guests: We're here to help make suggestions for activities and restaurants. Just let us know. But you have your own space with your own entrance.

The neighborhood: Beautiful homes make this a great neighborhood for a walk. Close to the park for children and walking distance to downtown and Southern Virginia University.

Other things to note: Additional bedding available: Pull-out Twin sofa bed for third guest. Pack-n-Play for infants also available on request. Mini-Fridge and Microwave located in suite.

Also (and perhaps most importantly) we are trying to come up with the perfect name for our Inn. Any guest who comes up with the name we adopt will receive a free night stay! :)

Beautiful and so relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

After a busy week of Graduation events, this was a much needed break for me and my Daughter (the graduate). The room is absolutely lovely, very clean, and the bed, I can't say enough about the bed! I loved the bed! We really enjoyed our relaxing Mama Daughter trip. Thanks for everything!

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Nina and Alan's home. The location was perfect, just off the Blue Ridge Parkway which we explored as well as the surrounding areas. The room was lovely and the bed was very comfortable. The private entrance made it extremely easy to come and go as you pleased. Thank you Nina and Alan! Ruth

Beauty In Buena Vista

  • 5 of 5

Passing through Buena Vista, you would never guess that there is a beautiful and elegant room there, but there is.We stayed only one night but it was very confortable. Allan the owner right after our arrival contacted us to check if we had everything we needed. We had great privacy too. Thank you for letting us stay .
