FoX Cross Cottage
Get away to the Virginia Countryside! This beautifully furnished holiday cottage on three acres is located in the heart of Hunt Country and the Appalachian foothills. We are outside the picturesque village of The Plains, VA., eight miles south of Middleburg and 50 miles west of Washington, DC. Renovated thoughtfully, the home retains its charm and 19th century stone foundation. Enjoy the neighboring wineries, coffeeshops, farm-to-table restaurants, equestrian events, farmers markets, hiking trails and antique stores, or take a drive and savor Virginia's gorgeous vistas! 
This delightful cottage sleeps eight and has a fully equipped kitchen. The large deck overlooks the expansive lawn where you can entertain by cooking on the grill or just watch the stars. Or catch up with friends around the fire pit. We'll provide the skewers!

We hope you read our reviews, and book a relaxing stay!
Thank you!  Rob and Lina
