Writer's Retreat

Cabin -
1 Bedroom , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 2
Lexington, Virginia
The Writer's Retreat cabin is located on 250 acres of rolling farmland only 4 miles from downtown Lexington and it will delight you! It is larger than it looks, though the feeling you experience is that of a comfortable nook or nest. This is the place to 'recluse' from the fast pace of your life. With simplicity and charm - everything you need is provided. A very workable eat-in kitchen, bathroom with antique claw foot tub, Q bedroom, living room with leather sofa and chair and a signed art piece for a coffee table. Enjoy the morning sun coming through the bedroom window and the setting sun over the hay field from the kitchen and the front porch.The bedroom is nestled on the second floor loft area. The very comfortable queen sized bed (wool pillow top mattress and 4 pillows) provides a great night's rest from creative purs... Read more

We are so happy you enjoyed our Writer's Retreat. It is one of my favorite cabins for getting away and been a haven for many artists and writers looking for inspiration over the years. We hope it inspired you as well. Best, Lesley Management Team

Comfy rustic cabin, but with some of the comforts of home, like air conditioning. The living room was comfortable, the kitchen well equipped. The front porch was nice for an evening sitting.

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.

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 th...
