Cabin Holiday Rental
This cabin has a romantic origin. It is actually comprised of three small cabins, the center one having been found in a pile of logs on 'the back forty'. Brought to its current location, two additional small cabins were found to add to it. It has been modernized to assure your stay will be everything you dream. The full length front sitting porch will remind you of a time long past as you sit listening to birds chattering and watching the abundant wildlife. The back deck is perfect for grilling on the gas BBQ grill or to relax, taking in another perspective. Adirondack chairs & a picnic table with umbrella are in the side and back yards. The very comfortable queen beds, both in the downstairs master bedroom and in the upstairs sleeping loft, will provide you with your best night's sleep. ...This cabin has a romantic origin.

It is also dog friendly depending on size, breed and prior approval. Our guests must agree to our dog policy prior to arriving. Our largest fully modern kitchen has been completely remodeled with a poured-in-place concrete countertop. The kitchen is equipped with refrigerator, stove, microwave, coffee maker, dishes, pots, pans, jams, spices, starter coffee, hot cocoa & teas. All you will need are the steaks for the grill. The vista from the back deck and yard is over one of our four hay fields. If you are lucky you will see the bi-annual hay harvest with its amazing large round bales. Come experience a 'slice of Shenandoah magic'!More

My sister and I stayed here for a few days and really enjoyed ourselves. The scenery is gorgeous. The Chessie nature trail is a good walk, easy hike that is parallel to the Maury River. Don't miss going to the Natural Bridge. Except for the steps at the beginning and the end of the hike, the path is easy to traverse. The Natural Bridge is impressive. The cabin was well supplied with over 20 herbs in the pantry. Beds were comfortable. We had such beautiful weather and that made the trip more enjoyable.

Beautiful setting to enjoy a great week in Lexington. A few miles from town, but seemingly miles away from the world.

The location is wonderful-very close to Lexington. Cabin is comfortable, stocked nicely and so cozy. We had a great three day weekend hiking, hanging out and exploring the property.

The Homestead was perfection! Cozy, charming, clean, cute. Both my boyfriend and I found it to be even better than the photos. The kitchen is well equipped if you plan to cook. The location is good for accessing the sites in Lexington. All in all, I would highly recommend a stay! It was just the romantic getaway we'd hoped for.

We stayed here for our 1 year wedding anniversary. It was absolutely lovely. We cooked each night to add that bit of personal intimacy over really good food. We hiked the last morning of our trip on the farm trail to the love sculptures. It was breathtakingly beautiful. It was early morning and misty which added that majestic touch. We will be back!

About the neighbourhood
Our 250 acre farm does not sit in the heart of downtown Lexington! The address you see listed is our business office in our Lexington home. We respect your privacysafety therefore we do not give the exact address to your cabin until you pick up your information packet with driving instructions to the farm your cabin. Follow it exactly & you will be putting your feet up in approximately 10 minutes :)The area is amazingly beautiful. From certain places on the farm both mountain ranges are visible, in some cases 360 degree views of both ranges are seen. There are lovely walks on the farm in addition to the 7 mile Chessie Trail just across the road. This trail runs along the Maury river, through cow pastures & along some rock cliffs.Come relax, re-boot& return home a new person!
