About Robert and Lina Liberace
We (Rob and Lina Liberace) are artists who love to create, play baseball (Rob), antique (Lina) and to renovate old spaces. We have two daughters (also artists) and two tabby cats (not artists). We spend a lot of our time traveling - It helps that Rob teaches art workshops in the US and overseas. We hope that the country house we've thoughtfully updated and renovated brings others the same joy and relaxation it brings to us. We have tried to provide the same conveniences to our guests that we would like to have when traveling.
Robert and Lina Liberace purchased this House in 2013
Why Robert and Lina Liberace chose Scott
We were very lucky to find this charming house in a wonderful location. With artistic energy and elbow grease, it is now a little gem in the heart of the most beautiful area in Virginia - the rolling hills of the Piedmont region. It is in the country yet close to so much!
What makes this House unique
Enjoy artwork and antiques in beautifully renovated home in Virginia's rolling foothills. Outside you can sip wine on the large deck looking over an expansive lawn. Swing on the tree swing, lie down and stargaze in the backyard, or enjoy the grill or fire pit. In the distance you'll hear roosters crowing and horses neighing from across the road. Just two miles in both directions are lovely little towns with great coffee shops and upscale shops and farm-to-table restaurants. Eight miles to the north is Middleburg, with its Hunt Country charm. Surrounding us are more wineries and antique shops than you can ever do in a weekend. It is hard to believe that Washington DC is only one hour to the east.

Amazing stay in beautiful hunt country
We loved the house. It is perfectly situated between the quaint towns of Marshall and the Plains and also very close to Middleburg. It was beautifully decorated with such nice antiques and artistic touches. It was the perfect peaceful getaway. The house was well stocked with absolutely everything you could need for a short or longer stay including a kitchen with every cooking appliance you could ever need, a washer, dryer and tons of DVDs full of fantastic movies. The surroundings are amazing. And Lina the owner is an absolute GEM! She was so kind and responsive. We had a special circumstance and she was so incredibly helpful from the moment we inquired about booking. Absolutely the best VRBO stay have ever had. I can't wait to visit the house again.
Thank you, Janice! You were the perfect guests and we were so happy to have been able to host you, especially during these crazy times! Thank you for leaving everything so perfectly and would be thrilled to welcome you back any time. We wish you both the best. Stay safe!
Sweet and cozy cottage
My husband and I LOVED our time at Fox Cross Cottage--what a special place! We literally felt as though we were staying with friends--that's how comfortable Lina and Robert's attention to detail made us feel. One of my favorite parts of our stay was looking all the little "moments" throughout the cottage--you can tell Lina and Robert are artists by the way the home is curated (my fav painting was the spools of thread). Though we arrived a couple of days after Christmas, I so appreciated having the Christmas tree, as it extended the holiday spirit and offered more little treasures to look at. :) Lina and Robert are super gracious hosts, kindly leaving us a bottle of wine, which we thoroughly enjoyed, and I plan on framing the notecard Lina left us as a sweet reminder of our time at Fox Cross (look closely . The cottage's location is fantastic--quick ride into Marshall for all kinds of great food, very close to Middleburg for shops and more restaurants, lots of breweries and wineries nearby, and only a 25-minute drive to our favorite hiking spot, Sky Meadows Park. We were so sad to leave, but we'll definitely be back again!
Beautiful, comfortable and well appointed property. Fantastic hosts!
This is an exceptionally beautiful and well managed home. Every room has a wonderful rural Virginia farmhouse feel - decorations, furniture, shower, and appliances. Every space is well used and full of amenities that make your stay perfect. We will be staying here for many years to come. We only wish we had been able to stay longer and use the firepit and outdoor grounds. Thank you for helping to make our Christmas a special and memorable one.
Our stay at the cottage was wonderful! It is in a great location close to many wineries and lovely downtown. The owners are wonderful. They had the cottage decorated with lovely Christmas decorations and a beautiful Christmas tree. The sunroom was so cozy and we loved the heated floor.
The cottage was very clean. A great bonus that linens and bath towels were provided. We enjoyed visiting the area. Marshall is just a short distance and what a great town. We purchased many delicious baked items at the Red Truck Rural Bakery. A most stop if you are in that area. We also went to Luray Caverns for a special evening with a candle light walk through the caverns with carolers singing at various locations. It was beautiful. The cottage met all our needs and we will definitely visit again.
Charmed Cottage in a splendid setting
There was never a doubt we lucked into a getaway perfectly accessible for our family Thanksgiving reunion and planned scenic area treks! Complementary restorative amenities at Fox Cross Cottage at beginning and end of our days were thoroughly guest-worthy. One could not help admire FXCs personal collection and talented art-full surroundings.
Dwelling in our own vintage house, we appreciated the details in restoration updating this picturesque compound. Garden herbs to savor in menus prepared in a complete kitchen; flexible check-in and such generous communications were a special welcome alongside owner treats !
Comfortably furnished in the hospitable manner of Hunt Country style, we recharged as many hours in its cozy setting as we could. Roasting marshmallows under sunsets we wished were longer, parting we vowed return and meantime share with friend -- who MUST stay themselves !
