About the Property

Smithsonian Magazine:'The 20 Best Small Towns to Visit'

Experience living in the heart of historic Lexington. Enjoy your morning coffee on the front porch of this stately home overlooking the sweeping lawns of one of downtown Lexington's grandest streets.

Steps away from downtown restaurants, universities and shops. Located .3 miles from Washington and Lee University and Virginia Military Institute.

This is a great alternative to nearby hotels, offering privacy and luxury accommodations for up to 10 guests in a private home. Our beautifully appointed house is completely renovated, with a gourmet kitchen, upgraded bathrooms and quality linens. It is ideal for vacations, alumni and parents' weekends, graduations, weddings and family getaways.

Lexington is a thriving town, with two universities and an active art, theater and music scene. It's consistently ranked as one of the best small towns in America. It is an excellent starting point for exploring the Shenandoah Valley, Blue Ridge and Allegheny mountains, Civil War and other historic sites, as well as nearby Monticello and Charlottesville.

We are located an hour from Charlottesville/Monticello and less than 3 hours from Washington DC and Historic Williamsburg. Less than an hour from the world famous Homestead Resort and Hot Springs.
