“Feels Like Home”
Reviewed September 7, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We recently stayed 2 nights in this guesthouse. We were visiting our son at VMI while also having guests for dinner. In a nutshell, I can say that it was so wonderful to have a roomy place that felt like home and had plenty of yard for spreading out and offering some privacy.

While not in downtown Lexington, the guesthouse is a short, convenient drive from town. The house is located on a rural road with a nice view of rolling hills and distant mountains. It is not necessarily a great place to take a walk, as we found there were seemingly vicious dogs in every neighboring house, but it was a beautiful place to sit on the large porch for dinner, book reading, or whatever else seems relaxing. The morning views with the mountain fog were really great to wake up to. There is a swing and a hammock in the yard. There is ample parking in the long driveway. The owners stay on the property, but you will never know they are there.

Carol welcomed us to the house and let us take over as if everything were ours. It was so wonderful to have nice kitchen and dining space for our family and guests to visit and relax. We were able to grill burgers and spread our "buffet" out in the kitchen while also enjoying plenty of dining table and porch space for everyone to find a place to eat.

The bedrooms were all a nice size and comfortably decorated. They were appointed quaintly, but nothing was too fancy that we were worried about using or breaking things. The bedrooms and towels were all clean and fresh and nicely displayed when we arrived. If you are very picky for a spotlessly detailed place as you might find at some B&B type establishments, this house is not that. It is more like the type of clean your own house might be when it has not had a deep clean in the last year. However, all of the spaces we used were definitely satisfactory and very welcoming. It could be your true home away from home.
