Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: Bernie is originally from the Northwest of England and has lived in Lexington at the Guesthouse since 2002. He ran this property as a successful Bed and Breakfast, Rider's Rest, until 2014. Carol is originally from Charleston, West Virginia. She moved to Lexington and purchased Carol's Cottage in 2011. The Cottage is next door to the Guesthouse. Bernie and Carol were married in the Gazebo of their beautiful property on June 1st, 2013.

Why the Owner Chose Lexington, VA, USA:
Bernie visited Lexington in the 90's through a invitation from a fellow Brit and fell in love with the place instantly. It reminded him of his birth place in Lancashire, North West England, more than any where else he had visited in America. At that time he was living in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida and although the sun was a nice change from the British weather, he missed the scenery and seasons of home. In 2002 he had the opportunity to purchase this 1920's Colonial house, totally remodeling it in 2002 - 2003. The house was updated while retaining the old world charm of days past.-- Every morning we awake feeling so lucky to have found our piece of paradise.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The view from the front porch overlooks 300 acres belonging to the Virginia Horse Center with Hog Back Mountain in the back ground. Down town Historic Lexington is only 3 miles from our door featuring arts and crafts, clothing and book shops and two Antique malls. There are restaurants in the area for all tastes and budgets.
