Alpine Hideaway
Reviewed September 13, 2013

We have an official honeymoon planned for June, but wanted to spend a few days away after our Sept 7th wedding just to unwind. The Ivy Cottage could not have been more perfect! The cottage is the perfect size for a couple, and gave us the luxury of being able to go out (or stay in) at our leisure. The icing on the top of the cake was the hottub, which we used every night! I would just recommend bringing a citronella candle for late night hottub visits or for watching sunsets. We even left ours for the next couple! We are already planning a winter visit to return!

Just book it and you'll see since I can't do it justice with just words!! However, since I have to write 200 minimum here's some more info:
-Great views.
-Whirlpool and outdoor hot tub are amazing and it's magical to see the frosty beauty of the view in the fall/winter while immersed within the warmth of the water.
-The pictures make it look smaller than it feels and all the windows and the sliding doors make it seem more spacious than you'd expect.
-A short ride to vineyards, downtown Lexington, walking trails.
-Cozy and secluded but the owners are easily accessible.
-The Kitchen is full of all of those things you wouldn't think to bring but are so grateful to discover they have already thought of.
-Easy drive from the DC area.
-The bed and pillows are very comfortable.
-You don't feel like you're walking into a rental upon arrival, it really feels like a cozy dream/second home.
-Lots of space for picnics.
-Venturing out really seems secondary to the luxury on site.
Very romantic environment but it would also lend it's to be fun as a girl-weekend out or even a solo getaway/"glam-ping".
Very tranquil and the fireplace is a great touch

Room Tip: Pond View!

You know how when you look for a romantic getaway they can sometimes look tacky or schmaltzy? Not this place. We stayed at the Pond Cabin for two days and had the time of our life. If you cook, everything is there (including a grill) to make a gourmet meal. If not, they have packages for meals. There is a wine tasting at 5:30PM every day, and you get to know Mellissa and Ray, the owners who are great. The cabin is isolated enough for privacy (I was blasting the Allman Brothers late while we relaxed in the hot tub) everything is clean, and at night we watched a million fireflys and stars.
THIS is THE romantic getaway.
We will be back.

Room Tip: The Pond cabin seems to be the favorite.

We stayed at Ivy Cottage for a couple of days to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. The cottage was perfectly equipped, they've thought of everything. We grilled steaks on the front porch as we took in a beautiful view. The hot tub on the rear deck was fantastic and very private. We will stay here again and will recommend it to our family and friends.

We stayed two nights at Alpine Hideaway. One night in Sunset and the other in Pond View. Both cabins were very well appointed with full kitchens, comfortable beds, and spotless bathrooms. The gas grill at Sunset was new and we had a great steak dinner. Sunset is on the side of a ridge overlooking the valley and is very peaceful. Pond View is equally well appointed and is on the bank of a spring fed pond. It's stocked with rainbow trout, sunfish and bass. I brought my fly rod and caught numerous trout and fat sunfish. Alpine Hideaway is 10 minutes from a nice winery and less than 30 minutes from Shenandoah National Park and its various hikes, including Crabtree Falls (a very scenic hike). We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend at Alpine Hideaway.

Room Tip: You can't go wrong with either cabin.

The Pond View cabin is absolutely beautiful! Melissa and Ray have left nothing undone, they have thought of everything possible to make your stay very accommodating and relaxing. We opted for the steak dinner package and were very happy with our choice. The steak was out of this world. We had an amazing time and are looking forward to our return stay!
