Riverside Cottage

This is the cutest cottage in a gorgeous spot. The house is lovely, very clean with great amenities and a very good size (there were 9 of us). Didn’t feel cramped at all. Love the master suite and bath! It is great location (we were at a horse show At the Virginia Horse Center). Wish we had more time to enjoy the river! Thank you for the hospitality!

The riverside cottage is an amazing place to relax and unwind. We enjoyed the outdoor living area since the weather so nice. The layout inside is perfect for a crowd.

Great Stay!

Riverside Cottage was amazing! We had a lovely stay. It was close to VMI, yet felt very much "in the woods". The river is peaceful and full of fish! My son is a fly fisherman and loved fishing in the river. We will be back!

Nice house for a weekend getaway

We really enjoyed our Easter weekend stay at Riverside Cottage. Despite the rain and swelling of the Maury River, it was cozy and comfortable. The location is great if you want to head into Lexington or the surrounding area. Beds are comfortable, and luckily they had HBO so that we could watch Game of Thrones, which was a huge benefit! With our son being at VMI, our other son planning to go to VMI, and me being an Alumnus, I have no doubt that we will look into staying here again!

Riverside Cottage

Riverside Cottage was the perfect getaway for our family. It was close enough to stores for emergency trips for Thanksgiving dinner supplies, but isolated enough that we enjoyed some private time. The house had a large central living space that accommodated our crew and plenty of bedrooms so we could spread out. The bathrooms were large and there were plenty of towels--always a nice touch. We had a small bonfire on Thanksgiving night, which was wonderful, and we enjoyed hiking along the river with the dogs. Everyone agreed they'd like to return in warmer weather so we could make use of the boats stored under the house. Overall, a great experience.

Wonderful place to stay in around Lexington! Beautiful and secluded, but still close to town!

by Nataliya Submitted Date of Stay:

So great!

This house is great! Have stayed twice now. Convienent location, beautiful scenery, and the house is very well kept. Only suggestion would be that maybe that there would be a discounted rate for extra people. Love this house!

The house is lovely, very comfortable. Beding and towels were higher end. The view was really nice to walk around and was really close to town. We enjoyed Lexington and the surrounding area with a couple breweries and nice restaurants.

This cottage is great. It is secluded but centrally located with quick easy acces to shops and restaurants. Very nicely decorated. The beds were very comfortable. Didn’t get to personally meet the host but Janeen but everything was laid out in an email and text messages. I will definitley stay again if available on my next trip.

We had a very comfortable, clean, quiet weekend stay. The view and atmosphere In the back yard where we spent most of our time was peaceful and relaxing and the interior was well decorated and great for social evenings with friends or family.

Relaxing "Get Away from it All" Setting

Our family came together in the Lexington area for a nearby "destination" wedding. We were delighted with the home's setting, down a narrow lane, with a gentle river and dramatic cliffs nearby. The home was large enough for us to spread out in, and the main living area was homey, providing very comfortable furnishings for hanging out. The photos do not really convey the comfort of this place. The wireless service was great. The kitchen was small but provided everything we needed. We did not cook. Nearby Lexington is quaint, with lots of good restaurants and pubs. We did have one issue with the smaller bathroom, there was an intermittent bad odor. We reported it and were told it was being addressed. The "master" bathroom was large and easily accommodated us all. The nice washer and dryer came in handy too. There is plenty of space for being outdoors as well. Unfortunately, the weekend we were there was not conducive to being outside much, but the fire pit and decks with seating looked inviting.
Overall, we had a great weekend, and our experience was enhanced by having this wonderful place to stay and be together.

A wonderful stay

This is a great spot right on the river. Float it, enjoy it, sip a couple brew pops and take it all in. Fine backcountry livin to the maximum :)))

Great Maury River spot!

Family Reunion

My children all want a vacation week when they can enjoy each other's company. This house had the perfect dining/living room to talk and plan another day's activity. They all like outdoor activities and always have a fishing contest. The access to the Maury was perfect, easy to wade and get into tubes and boast. The fishing was especially good. Everybody caught a fish. The girls won again!
It is close to Lexington and its variety of places to eat so when no one wanted to cook we did not go hungry. The only minus is the very small kitchen.

I stayed at the Cottage mid September and our stay was very very nice. The house was very clean and beautifully furnished. The area was lovely and also I would give it a 10 rating. My husband and I really enjoyed the fishing and site seeing. The fishing was a bonus and well. Thank you and we look forward to visiting again real soon. Sincerely, Tracy Campbell

VMI soccer weekend

My husband and I were in town for a weekend of women's soccer. The location is perfect if you are looking for peace, solitude and gorgeous views. Historic Lexington is only a short drive away. The master bed was comfortable and the house was immaculate. The gas grill was convenient to prepare food for additional dinner guests. A memorable bonfire on our 2nd night, with another soccer family, was the highlight of our stay....with s'mores of course. Check out time was early, 10am. Would stay again in the future.
