The Rose Cottage sits on 74 acres in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley midway between Staunton and Lexington. It is very private, but conveniently located minutes away from scenic Rt. 11 and Interstates 81 and 64. Only minutes away from Washington & Lee University, Virginia Military Institute, and Mary Baldwin University.
The Cottage is your home away from home. It is a quiet retreat from the distractions of daily life. You will enjoy sitting on the deck with your morning coffee or tea, watching the local wildlife. You might see plenty of Virginia white-tail deer, sometimes with their fawns nearby, rabbits, maybe a fox, raccoons, chipmunks, squirrels and more. There are birds of all types - from hawks and the occasional eagle to bluebirds, cardinals, swallows, sparrows, towhees,etc. we put out feeders and birdbaths, so you can have a close-up view if you sit quietly.
You can enjoy making breakfast with the goodies stocked in the kitchen, including fresh eggs from our own hens and ducks. You might hear our peacocks calling, the neighbor's cows softly lowing or the donkeys down the road braying.
Don't miss sunset at the Cottage! With an expansive view of the sky, and almost no light pollution, so you can sit back and wonder at the beautiful sunset colors and a magnificent night sky.
You will enjoy the entire main floor - 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, a fully appointed kitchen with eat-in area, a large open concept living room, and a roomy outdoor deck with seating and a gas grill. Feel free to take a walk through the woods or fields.
The basement area is reserved for the owners, where the office is located. The basement has separate access.

I am retired from two interesting and fulfilling careers. The first was as a landscape gardner in my local business. The second was as the Director of the Izaak Walton League's Save Our Streams Program. I traveled all over the State of Virginia, working with individual, education and corporate citizens, teaching them about the macro-invertebrate communities that populate a healthy stream.
My home town, Lexington, is located in one of the most beautiful natural areas in Virginia, Rockbridge County. It gives me great pleasure to introduce this part of the Valley to new friends.
