About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

The Plains was recently voted 'Best Town to Visit' by Blue Ridge Travel and is home to the world famous 'Gold Cup Steeple Chase'. This charming cottage was the town barber shop 50 years ago and retains the 'good vibe' where laughter and small town news was shared. Furnished kitchen, newly renovated bathroom, high thread count linens, Ralph Lauren living room furniture with feather & down cushions makes a cozy extra bed. Park (free) and walk to three highly rated restaurants, shops and galleries or a 10 minute drive will take you to Middleburg or a number of picturesque wineries for tastings. Bring your bikes to roll down country roads or take a nice trail ride at Marriott Ranch


It's only an hour from DC and one mile off of I-66 but it's a whole new world from the crowds, stress and traffic.

Located next to Peyton's Place, a home furnishings and interior design studio, owners Kenny and Peyton love to share their secrets to small town living, be sure and stop in for a glass of Prosecco and browse through their fascinating collection of worldly goods.

About Peyton Slade

I moved here from L.A. by way of Colorado 15 years ago, it was a 'quality of life' decision that I don't regret even though small town life has it's own challenges. My husband and I were furniture 'reps' for a number of west coast companies and 13 years ago opened Peyton's Place a home furnishings store and design studio, here in The Plains, population 201. And somehow it worked. I must admit, it was my undying love of horses that precipitated the move here and playing with my horse is my favorite pastime still. If you'd like to share a glass of wine hear the crazy stories about our lives since moving here, just stop in Peyton's Place and we'll bend your ear for a while.

Peyton Slade purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Peyton Slade chose The Plains

I always wanted to live and work in the same town, reduce my carbon footprint and my stress, become part of a community like this one and try and live a simpler life. Moving to The Plains, Va., population 200 allowed me to accomplish all of those goals in one fell swoop. I can't imagine ever living in a city again, although they're still fun to visit.

What makes this cottage unique

A visit to the country is always relaxing, but staying in town, population 201, is really different. You get to experience what it's really like to live in a small community. Just open your door and walk to three wonderful restaurants, art galleries, antique store and tea room. Our place is really private, not like your typical B&B so you can hang out and just watch movies or read or get in your car and go to a winery or antiquing in the other small towns nearby, like Middleburg, Upperville, Warrenton, Marshall, each one has it's own unique flavor.

Charming, Quaint & Roomy Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Charming, quaint and roomy cottage in The Plains, Virginia. Comfortable bed, excellent internet access, and all the small touches to make one feel at home. Within walking distance of local restaurants (Rail Stop, Front Porch & Happy Creek Coffee & Tea), local shops (tea, bike, yarn, antiques), and local amenities (service station & mini mart). Easy access to I-66 and I-55 for the Haymarket Walmart, Star Bucks, Kohl’s and many other conveniences.

Cottage is well maintained, clean, roomy, and the kitchenette was well stocked for my 3-month stay. Peyton and Kenny were responsive, courteous, and exceptional hosts, knowledgeable about the area, its nuances, and local events. Local churches offer fellowship and entertainment, and they were within walking distance. The North Fauquier Community Park and the Great Meadows area both a short distance away, provide safe walking venues. All the amenities with small-town charm and friendliness.

Quaint cottage ! Great location!

  • 5 of 5

I just stayed in Peyton's cottage last weekend. My sister lives nearby but has a house full with 4 kids. The cottage was very clean and adorable!

Love the decorations! It is a great location. You can walk to all the shops and restaurants. I brought my large rescue dogs and it was great. They loved the large floor space to lay around. Lots of great places to walk dogs and fields for playing catch. Peyton & her husband were very friendly and helpful! I highly recommend this lovely cottage and area!

Perfect for our visit!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a week in Peyton's charming cottage in The Plains while we came to town to visit our families. The location was ideal for us, but even better, the cottage was a warm and welcoming place for us to return to every evening. Peyton has decorated it with every thoughtful detail in mind, and we loved her use of fabrics to create a delightful space (no surprise, given that she runs a home decorating shop next door!). It really felt like a home-away-from-home for us. The Plains is our favorite town in the area, with three outstanding restaurants just around the corner, though it was wonderful to have a kitchen in the cottage so we could prepare our own breakfast. We will look forward to returning!!

Clean cottage and convenient jumping off point

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed our stay at this cottage in November 2014. The property is well maintained and clean. We found the location to be quite convenient for visiting Middleburg and wineries in Delaplane. Be sure to have a meal at Forlano's, just steps away!

An absolutely amazing time

  • 5 of 5

We didn't get to meet Peyton but, Kenny made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived. He went out of his way to make sure we were comfortable. The cottage was beautiful, the people were friendly and the food was wonderful. I can't wait to go back!
