Property description

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.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose The Plains, VA, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
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.
