About the property

1 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, 2 Sleeps

Ready for a get away from the city? A stay at 'The Nest' with its wooded surroundings in the countryside will have you relaxed in no time.

The Nest is a lovely, comfortable, 2nd story studio apartment of new construction, separate from my home, on 20 acres of woodlands. The 500 square foot apartment is comfortable and cozy, well appointed, with all modern amenities. It is situated above the garage and work studio, with separate exterior stairs. The bedroom offers a queen sized bed, all new linens, pillows, mattress and towels. A sofa in the main space has a pull out twin bed. Please note, as the unit is on the second level and in the middle of 20 acres of wooded land, there is no need for window coverings. Very private!

The kitchenette has a small refrigerator and freezer, microwave, portable cooktop, toaster oven/broiler. The cupboards are stocked with glassware, silverware, essential cooking elements, French press coffee pot (I supply the freshly ground coffee) and Fiestaware dinnerware.

Enjoy coffee or cocktails on the 12 x 20 foot balcony deck. Also available to you is ground level patio area. Take a walk in the woods, explore the surrounding, to take in the various countryside and mountain views.

You have WiFi access, a 42 inch flat screen television with internet access, including Netflix.

A great get away spot for two ... not really suitable for children.

Please - no pets, no smoking.

The Nest is 10 miles from Lexington, a short 15 minute drive. Longer of course, if you're taking the time to count the number of blue herons you see in the creeks as you make the drive.

Come relax and see.

Peace and quite

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful time. Very peaceful and quite. Jan was a wonderful hostess. This place is close to Virginia's Natural Bridge State Park and the Virginia Safari Park along with other attractions in Lexington Virginia.

Well-designed, well-appointed and cozy country retreat.

  • 5 of 5

Jan was a terrific host. She sent info ahead, was flexible, welcoming and set the tone for relaxation. She even mapped out a bicycle route for us. We enjoyed the treetop views and delicious French press coffee. Open floor plan, comfortable bed, nice shower. Pleased by the dining in Lexington. Not far from Natural Bridge. Only wish we’d had more time.

Jan was an amazing host. Her place was lovely and she went above and beyond providing snacks, coffee grounds, and toiletries! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at her lovely place in the woods. I will highly recommend her place!

The perfect place for a getaway with the most stress free accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

This place was fantastic. My girlfriend and I felt like we were the first people to stay here; so clean and fresh smelling! Jan had the mini fridge stocked with some goodies for us and fresh linens. The Netflix subscription on the TV was an added bonus that made evenings that much more relaxing. Jan was very quick to answer all my questions and was so polite and excited that we were enjoying our stay in Virginia. Highly recommended.

Beautiful and relaxing stay!!

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time using VRBO and it could not have been a better experience!! Jan was wonderful and the place was beautiful!! Jan could not have been more helpful in assisting with anything that was needed. The apartment was gorgeous (and I will say I am somewhat picky)! Everything was beyond immaculately clean and there was even water and snacks left as an added treat. The outside surroundings were gorgeous and I took the opportunity to use the weekend to relax in such a beautiful location while running back and forth to my son's parent's weekend at W&L. There are not enough good things to say about my stay and I look forward to staying again!!
