Best Place to Stay in Lexington!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Chessie Trail numerous times to attend our son's W&L football games.

This is a wonderful, quiet, quaint place to stay! A beautiful location close to W&L and VMI. We enjoy seeing the goats, donkey, and sweet Labradors Dozer and Chester during our stay. Clean and comfortable with all the amenities we need for our week-ends in Lexington!

If you stay here once, this will be your only choice for your future visits to Lexington!

What a great spot!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for VMI weekend and Chessie Trail Half Marathon. Centrally located for everything I had going on.

Very clean. Great hot water. So nice to have kitchen to cook for cadets and relax - thousand times better than a hotel room.

Very large farm like property. Owners home is on property also - very nice people. Very accommodating. On the property you’ll find some African guineas (funny little free-roaming birds), goats, a donkey, super friendly kitty and 2 dogs. Fun to watch them wandering the pastures.

Feels like a very country setting, but close to town. Directly across street access to Chessie Trail. You could hop the trail and walk to VMI in less than a mile.

We were able to use fire pit and group of cadets were able to just hangout and relax. There’s a large screen tv for movies or sports.

One of the best little places I’ve rented in Lexington area.

FYI - There are approximately 8 steps inside doorway to get up to apartment (if mobility/stairs are an issue).

A Perfect weekend! Really enjoyed. Will be back!

Great weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We stopped in Lexington for two nights on our way back to Kentucky from a wedding in Virginia. The chalet was perfect! It is a two mile drive to downtown Lexington, 1.5 miles from a kroger, yet you get to enjoy the feel of being in the country. Also, Lexington is a great hub for outdoor adventures and the chalet is on the Chessie trail. We loved our stay!

Perfectly Content

  • 5 of 5

We were perfectly content with the location and lodging. Everything was as advertised: a somewhat rustic lodging that was clean, comfortable, and unique. It was a pleasure to walk our dog in the huge yard space behind the chalet. The quiet country atmosphere in conjunction with the close proximity to downtown Lexington was an appreciated plus. As advertised, access to the Chessie Trail was literally across the road. And, even though the owners' home is located on the same property, we experienced complete privacy. The very reasonable price of the chalet, in conjunction with the peaceful setting and the logistical convenience of Lexington, makes it cheaper than - but oh, so much more pleasant - than staying at a hotel! A return trip to Lexington would most definitely mean another stay at the Chessie Trail Chalet.

Close to town, yet a quiet country retreat

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 enjoyed our 4 night stay. Everything was as described and clean. We enjoyed seeing the animals in the yard as well as a visit from several deer. The fire pit was great as was the trail and river right across the street. The setting was quiet and peaceful, but it was just a short ride to town for restaurants, site seeing, etc.

Anniversary stay

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful time in this little second floor cottage, well kept and clean, very private and easy access to Lexington. They lent us bikes for a ride on the trail which is right across the road. Ate out a few times, and enjoyed getting to know the town better. Thanks Sue!
