Comfortable cozy home
Very convenient to downtown Lexington and groceries. The owners were very accommodating for a last minute schedule change. Home was nicely stocked with necessities and kitchen supplies.
Exactly what we hoped for
We were visiting Lexington with friends and wanted something more comfortable than a hotel so we could spend our down time together. The house was perfect, close to town and W&L where we were visiting our son. The home was clean and everything was in good working order. Would definitely recommend to small groups or families and would definitely stay again!
Good house but not clean
The house was good but it was obvious there was absolutely zero effort in making sure the house was ready for us. The first floor looked clean and the second floor not so much. The sheets on the beds upstairs were dirty with pieces of hair all over them. There were bugs and spider webs in most corners of the house. The owner and property manager were nice but didn't really care.
Great house and owner.
This was a great experience. Everything was clean and charming.
Great house in a great location!
We were in Lexington ten days for VMI and W&L graduations. This house was perfect. We walked to the schools, the grocery, and restaurants. It was stocked with everything we needed. We even began renting Redbox movies at night. I only wish I had found this a few years earlier.
Nice stay over Parent's Weekend
Recently my husband and I stayed here for W & L's Family weekend. Elise was easy to communicate with and did her best to accommodate us. Here are a few pros's and con's..
Pro's- Location to town ( a short drive/ we never walked/ a little father then we were up to.), house was clean with plenty of towels, beds are comfortable although FIRM (possibly memory foam- we liked them!), a well stocked kitchen (coffee, tea, coco, sugar- items were opened and most likely left behind by other renters), and a nice grill under a covered area.
Cons~ shades in master bedroom are very light and do not block sunlight in the morning, when water is running upstairs (shower, sink, toilet) it defiantly effects the shower downstairs (cold!!!), and TV does not get ESPN.
Overall we had a very nice stay, there was a hiccup with no bathroom soap in the house and I'm certain Elise tried to get us some through the housekeeper but her car broke down and that never happened. You are close to a grocery store so we bought our own! Thank you again Elise- for trying!!
You can walk to historic Lexington, VMI, or W&L from the property. Grocery, shopping, pharmacy, dining, and playgrounds are all walkable. Despite the close location to all the essentials and attractions, Morningside House is a quite and restful location.
