The Applewood Cottage, a Lexington Virginia Lodging, is a one story passive solar design set into the hill. Light tubes and skylights help reduce the need for electric lights. It is centrally air conditioned and heated, with ceiling fans in each room. A large covered deck on the west end is accessed from the dining room or kitchen and has both seating and a table and chairs for outdoor dining. The cottage is tucked into the trees on three sides and open on the west, allowing a view of the grazing llamas. Free WiFi is available.
The Great Room is a large room with a bank of south facing windows overlooking the garden and mature trees. It has a sofa, recliner, and rocking chair. There is a gas fireplace and cabinet with satellite TV, games and puzzles.
The Kitchen and Dining area opens onto the west porch and connects through an open floor plan to the Great Room. The dining table can seat six and has views to the south and west. Through a sliding glass door, one may access a huge west facing raised balcony/porch that offers additional dining and lounging options. The kitchen is stocked with most condiments and a selection of breakfast foods. We welcome special requests. Recycling bins are in the pantry. Use of full size oven/range, double sink, refrigerator and dishwasher are all included.
The Master Bedroom Suite has a queen memory foam mattress, a bank of south facing windows, and a loveseat facing the gas fireplace. It is decorated in pastel greens and aquas, white trim and furniture (some wicker), full bath with shower, hairdryer, towels, soaps and shampoos and an
east facing porch with love seat.
The Second Bedroom has a twin captain’s bed (trundle) sleeps one or two. It has it’s own full bath with shower.

“After many delightful stays in the Blue Ridge Room with our fur faced family, and having had the pleasure of eating meals and visiting with your Mom, we are honored to be the first guests to stay in the Applewood Cottage. The Cottage was perfect for our us and our dogs and we all found ourselves thinking of it as our home away from home. We are so comfortable and at peace there and we cannot thank you enough … it is beautiful.
