About the property

3 Bedrooms and 2 Full Baths With Gorgeous Mountain Views.

The Cottage is NOT a permanent residence. It is a short term vacation rental. Bernie and Carol live next door.

Carol's Cottage, built in 1931, is situated just across the street from the Virginia Horse Center Cross Country Course. It was tastefully remodeled in 2010 to provide modern conveniences, while retaining all of it's charm.

We are conveniently located approximately 10-20 minutes from most of the wedding venues in the Lexington,Va area.

The Cottage sits on five acres of beautiful lawn that it shares with The Guesthouse, formerly the Rider's Rest B and B, which is also listed on VRBO. Both of the properties sleep a total of 17 in beds, combined.

About Bernie or Carol Shaw

Carol is originally from Charleston, West Virginia. She moved to Lexington and purchased the Cottage in 2011. She met the "boy next door", Bernie, who is from the Lake District of England.

One thing led to another and the British guy and the American girl were married on June 1st, 2013 in the Gazebo in front of their lovely homes!

Bernie or Carol Shaw purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Bernie or Carol Shaw chose Lexington

We both purchased our properties because we were drawn to the absolute beauty and peacefulness of the area and the wonderful people that live here.

What makes this cottage unique

The Cottage and the Guesthouse next door are the closest accomodations to the Virginia Horse Center. We are literally across the street from the Oak Hill Cross Country course.

We are located just 3 miles from the center of Lexington,Va.

Perfect home for Son's wedding at VMI

  • 5 of 5

We rented Carol's Cottage and the Guest House for our sons wedding weekend at VMI. Both homes were so beautiful, clean, had everything you needed. I would highly recommend both homes for your next event.

Convenient Country Living At Its Finest !

  • 5 of 5

Carol's Cottage is a wonderful place to stay. I can not image there being another rental that is so close to everything yet gives you the feeling that you are way out in the country. The cottage is beautifully decorated and furnished with very comfortable furniture and beds. We totally enjoyed our stay and hope to return to this cottage in the future.

Love Carol's Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location...2 Mile's from town, but felt like we were further. Sitting on the front porch for morning coffee or our evening meal was relaxing. Can't wait to stay again!!

Cozy and modern conveniences- Centrally located.

  • 5 of 5

Carol's Cottage is an adorable and extremely clean lodging option. Fully equipt kitchen made it easy to make dinners in for our 3 couples and our college daughters. Located very close to W&L made this hidden gem the perfect home for us. We look forward to many more stays over the next few years! Thank you Carol & Bernie.
