After running Applewood Inn and Llama Trekking for 23 years , Chris and Linda are entering a new phase of innkeeping, now offering only the Applewood Cottage vacation rental.
Applewood Cottage, a Lexington Virginia lodging, was completed in December 2009, originally as an energy efficient, easy access, single story home for our 90 year old mother with mobility issues. It is a passive solar design with skylights, solar tubes and largely tile floors and huge porches.
The setting is pastoral at the end of a hollow above Buffalo Creek in the south western Shenandoah Valley, between Lexington and Natural Bridge. A small woods separates the cottage from the owner’s home and pool, located conveniently just up the hill. Aside from that, you have total privacy with no neighbors in sight, only deer, turkey, birds and other wildlife. Applewood Cottage is a premier Lexington, Virginia Lodging.

” Thank you for an amazing time at your property. It was beyond our expectations! Your cottage was magnificent and we are in awe. My 22 month old daughter felt at home right away. It was a great escape from the busy life of Boston. We loved the breathtaking views and the serenity of the place. We will miss your dog Ginger; my daughter had a blast interacting with them.”
