About the property

3 Bedrooms and 2 Full Baths With Gorgeous Mountain Views.

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.

About Bernie or Carol Shaw

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!

Bernie or Carol Shaw purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Bernie or Carol Shaw chose Shenandoah Valley

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.

What makes this cottage unique

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.

Lovely Cottage for a relaxed stay in Lexington

  • 5 of 5

Carol's Cottage was very comfortable - and a perfect base for us to spend Thanksgiving with our daughter (at W&L Law). Carol & Bernie couldn't have been more welcoming and the house had all of the facilities we needed. Lovely place to stay.

Relaxing

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is great! We'll-stocked kitchen and clean bathrooms. Beautiful views from the front porch. Only complaint we had was the uncomfortable mattress in the downstairs bedroom. I was concerned about kitchen chairs after reading earlier posts, but the kitchen chairs were plenty sturdy. We'd definitely go back. Thanks for opening up your cottage to us!

A Wonderful Refuge!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our experience at Carol's Cabin. We stayed for an entire week, and we were very sad to leave. The home is beautifully appointed and has everything one would need -- comfortable beds, TVs, wi-fi, washer/dryer, a fully stocked kitchen, and best of all -- a front porch with a breathtaking view! At the end of each day, we looked forward to coming back to the front porch, pulling up the rocking chair and having a glass of wine while taking in that glorious view. Bernie and Carol live next door and are delightful people. And even though you feel like you are a million miles away, town is just a very short drive away. We loved it here and would definitely come back. This is one of the most positive rental experiences we have ever had.

A Little Dream House!

  • 5 of 5

We love Carol's Cottage. The furnishings and decor are lovely and the house perfectly comfortable. The house itself is a gem, solidly built, nicely old-fashioned but updated and equipped for today. In our four days there, we spent many hours on the front porch--working, relaxing, and enjoying the natural sights and sounds. The location is peaceful, pretty and quiet countryside, yet very near to Lexington. The good wifi helped with the work I had to do, and at night I connected my Macbook to the big TV with an HDMI cable and we watched our latest Netflix addiction. The house was very well supplied for travelers like us, with everything we needed to feel at home. Our only regret is that we couldn't stay a month! Thanks, Carol and Bernie.

Charming and cozy!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Carol's Cottage for New Market Oath Weekend. It was the first time we had to spend time with our Rat following Matriculation at VMI. We enjoyed every moment and are thrilled to be going back again for Parent's Weekend in 2017!! We had family join us for the trip and enjoyed each of our evening meals on the front porch...the views are stunning! The home is comfortable and the kitchen had everything we needed. Although we did not do laundry, we appreciated that the option was available. As a KY girl, I loved seeing the Derby Glasses and the Unofficial Losers cups. :)
