Come stay in our cozy timber framed guesthouse for a peaceful, serene getaway. The cottage has a large porch that wraps around 2 sides. Two comfy rockers are ideal to enjoy the natural surroundings and abundant wildlife.
We are located on 38 acres off a dirt road and are secluded, yet easily accessible to town. Lexington is a 12 minute drive and Goshen Pass is 15 minutes away for great fly-fishing and other outdoor recreational opportunities.
If you are looking for quiet simplicity or a romantic getaway then this is the place.
The living area has two leather recliners in front of a wood stove (firewood provided if you want to use the stove), a perfect setting for reading and conversation. We have books by local authors and a small collection of art by locals as well.
The kitchen has a small refrigerator, stove, and microwave. There is a table and chairs for meals. The cupboard is stocked with dishes, silverware, glasses, coffee press pot, and a few other pots and pans. Heat and A/C are provided using a wall mounted unit that you control with a remote controller.
The bedroom has a queen bed and the small bathroom has a shower stall, no tub. Linens and towels are provided. There is additional electric baseboard heat in the bedroom and bath.
The loft has a small sofa, table, lamps, and chair. There is also a queen size air mattress for use by those over the age of 10.
There are ceiling fans on the porch and in the living area and bedroom as well.
There is a small washer and dryer for your use in the basement (outside access).
There is no Wi-Fi, TV, or phone service to get in the way of your solitude, but your cell phone will work if you need it.
No pets. No smoking.

Close to VMI, W&L, VA Horse Center, Goshen Pass, Natural Bridge, and the Blue Ridge Parkway.
Staunton is 30 minutes away. Charlottesville is 1 hour away. Roanoke is 1 hour away. All by interstate.
We have added 4 barn quilts to some of our outbuildings.
About the owner: My husband and I came to Lexington 23 years ago. He is a Civil Engineering professor at VMI and I am a self-employed bookkeeper. He is a VMI grad as well so this place is home.
Why the Owner Chose Rockbridge Baths, VA, USA:
I love life in these mountains. So not the rat race of a big city. Slow pace of life.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We share the peace and quiet with abundant wildlife. There are only 8 families that live on our dirt road so we have very little traffic. We see deer and turkeys on a regular basis. My husband spent his Christmas vacation painting me 4 barn quilts that are now on 3 of our buildings. They are so bright and pretty.
