This is the front of the Ivy covered cottage, People always tell me that the ivy will destroy the building, but it's been there for over a hundred years, so I'm not changing it. Plus, I love it.You can see that this is a bright and cheerful room with the Southern light filtering through the 100 year old original glass panes.

The space

This charming cottage was once the town barber shop and is over 100 years old. It's a bright and sunny room with light filtering through the original paned glass windows. The kitchen is small but efficient and outfitted with everything you would need to prepare a meal. The bathroom is newly renovated.The queen size bed is made up in high thread count linens and the Ralph Lauren living room furniture with feather & down cushions makes a cozy extra bed.
Park (free) and walk to three highly rated restaurants, including the well known Happy Creek Coffee and bike shop a half a block walk. Spend time in our own shops and galleries or a 10 minute drive will take you to Middleburg or a number of picturesque wineries for tastings. Bring your bikes to roll down country roads or take a nice trail ride at Marriott Ranch. Hike at Sky Meadow in nearby Paris Virginia. Several golf courses within 20 minutes.

The Plains was recently voted "Best Town to Visit" by Blue Ridge Travel and is home to the world famous "Gold Cup Steeple Chase". It's only an hour from DC and one mile off of I-66 but it's a whole new world from the crowds, stress and traffic.

Peyton’s place was great. Right across the street from a couple restaurants and convenient to the Gold Cup steeplechase races. The bed was super comfy and we loved lounging on the comfy couch as well.

Glad you enjoyed your stay and thanks for the heads up on the salt and pepper shaker, we do provide them but once in a while they disappear as part of someone’s picnic lol!

Wonderful place to stay in the area, especially being dog friendly. The Plains is a really cute town and central to wineries/breweries. Definitely recommend staying here!

So sorry for the unavoidable hiccup in the reservation. It puts a host in a difficult situation when a guest isn't able to leave due to illness or sudden changes in circumstances. I'm glad you were flexible to stay in my other cottage and that it was available. Please come again and as I said privately, I would like to offer you a discount on another stay when you can make it out to our neck of the woods again. Best, Peyton
