“Gem in the countryside”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

We recently traveled to Lexington, VA and stayed here. Tranquility is about 15 minutes from town - the drive back and forth to W&L University was the only downside to a really enjoyable weekend. Tranquility is situated in the country - quiet and peaceful. We had both the Lotus room and Bamboo room.

WHAT WE LIKED:
-The rooms were clean and comfortable, each has a private bath. I didn't see the Bamboo room bath, but the Lotus room bath is really spacious with shower, no bath.
-The views are quite nice, rolling pastures on one side and wooded mountain on the other. The starlit sky was especially spectacular, well outside of town and light pollution.
-The outside deck, accessible from the Bamboo room had a fountain and oriental flair.
-The floors throughout Tranquility are a rough slate and the heat is subfloor - making it nice and toasty.
-Quiet - it was absolutely quiet, I slept like a baby.
-The main living area leading to the rooms is wide open and decorated with items the hostess has apparently acquired during her travels. We returned after dinner in town and she had the wood stove in the living room stoked and inviting.
-The hostess is interesting - flight attendant for many years, well traveled, well spoken and was there when you needed her and invisible otherwise. She has a collection of well made, finely woven baskets from Bali. Oh, and she can cook - we had a french toast casserole for breakfast that was great. If you like french toast, request this.

DOWNSIDE:
-Tranquility is a ways from Lexington. If you have business in town, plan ahead. The drive is pleasant, but it's a half hour (round trip)
-Regarding the floors - you are expected to remove your shoes at the door and replace with slippers (supplied by the hostess) This was fine with me, but a minor inconvenience for the ladies with their heels.

For us, these were minor negatives. If you want a peaceful, relaxing stay, you won't go wrong here.

Room Tip: If you want access to the deck and a mountain view, ask for the Bamboo room.
