Why Alan Whitehead chose Buena Vista
It's a beautiful place to visit with many activities in the area. Our home is located in a picturesque setting close to downtown, restaurants, shopping, and colleges (Washington & Lee, Virginia Military Institute, & Southern Virginia University).

Nice place to stay.
This met our needs perfectly. Had to travel to the Lexington area for a funeral. This rental was half the cost of the available hotel rooms in Lexington.
The room was clean. The hosts were great at communicating via the VRBO app; but were also respectful of our privacy. We appreciated the quiet space to crash, and the easy process of checking in and out (which amounted to just showing up and leaving without having to do anything special).
A quiet night in the foothills of the Shenendoahs
This Victorian home in Buena Vista in foothills of the Shenendoahs. Provided a comfortable nights rest in quiet surroundings. Our only real complaint was the unusually skimpy "Continental breakfast" the hosts provided. Unlike the majority of B&B's we have visited in the past, "breakfast" here was mighty meager. Only coffee, packets of instant oatmeal, & two small Kellogg's NutriGrain bars. NO juice, milk, or even a muffin, bagel, or donut. Fortunately, there was a grocery store not far away where we could purchase such items.
We're so glad that you enjoyed your stay. Sorry that you misunderstood the details of the property. It isn't a true B&B as we don't provide a hot breakfast but a nice room to stay in with a kitchenette and bathroom. We mention in our listing what is provided so guests know what to expect. We will revisit the description to try and clarify for future guests. Thank you for the feedback.
This was a wonderful home-we relaxed, enjoyed outings, friendly deer that visited in the evening.
This was a wonderful home-we relaxed, enjoyed outings, friendly deer that visited in the evening. Our youngest hostess caught lightning bugs and chatted for a short while. Ye were given wonderful advice on places to eat and things to do. It was truly an awesome vacation.
So glad that you came and had a great time! Come back to see us again sometime soon. :)
Perfect getaway for my daughter and me to enjoy some hiking along the AT, a nice meal in nearby Lexington, then a comfortable and quiet rest in a sweet room with independent entrance and lovely side porch. Communication for hosts was just right!
