Lexington, Virginia
The Rose Cottage is a comfortable 3 bedroom 2 bath home with fully appointed kitchen, large open living area, attached deck with grill, and 24 acres of open fields and woodlands. The Cottage is very private, but not at all isolated. It is within one minute of US Rt. 11 (a particularly scenic portion) and three minutes from Interstate 81/64. The Cottage is conveniently located about mid-way between the historic small towns of Lexington and Staunton. Both towns are home to universities, historic and outdoor attractions, music and entertainment, and great restaurants. It is about a 20 minute, easy drive to either town.

Interaction with guests
Rose Cottage is a separate home located about a 10 minute walk from the owners' residence. We make every effort to meet guests when they arrive, but if we can't be there, a code will be programmed into the front door keypad. We do appreciate a text or call letting us know your arrival schedule. We are always available, and we want our guests to be in touch with questions or if there is something we can do to make their visit more comfortable, but we don't 'hover'.

Jay and Anita were amazing hosts. They not only provided us a home away from home, but they took that extra step and provided us milk and juice for our two kids, along with breakfast foods and snack, and even fresh duck eggs from their personal flock! The house and property were both beautiful and very well kept, and even though it rained we had a great time. We would love to stay again in the future!

Management response:

Lacy - thank you for the review. We are glad you enjoyed the Cottage. We’d love for you to come back with the children and stay again. You all would be welcome any time.

We wanted to spend some quiet time in the Virginia countryside and that is exactly what we got.
Rose Cottage is clean and has a beautiful kitchen (a high priority for us) and had everything we needed for our party of 4. The view from the back porch is just beautiful, and we really enjoyed watching the many species of birds that visit the feeders.
Jay is a wonderful host and is very knowledgeable of the area. We will definitely be back!

Management response:

We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at the Cottage. And we hope you all will come back soon and often!
