Property description

Carol's Cottage, built in 1931, is situated just across the street from the Virginia Horse Center Cross Country Course. It was tastefully remodeled in 2010 to provide modern conveniences, while retaining all of it's charm.

We are conveniently located approximately 10-20 minutes from most of the wedding venues in the Lexington,Va area.

The Cottage sits on five acres of beautiful lawn that it shares with The Guesthouse, formerly the Rider's Rest B and B, which is also listed on VRBO. Both of the properties would sleep a total of 17, combined.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: Carol moved into the Cottage in 2011. She met the 'boy next door', Bernie. One thing led to another and the British guy and the American girl were married on June 1st, 2013 on the grounds of their lovely homes!

Why the Owner Chose Lexington, VA, USA:
We both purchased our properties because we were drawn to the absolute beauty and peacefulness of the area and the wonderful people that live here.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The Cottage and the Guesthouse next door are the closest accomodations to the Virginia Horse Center. We are literally across the street from the Oak Hill Cross Country course. We are located just 3 miles from the center of Lexington,Va.
