The Cottage at Lucketts

The motto at The Cottage at Lucketts is to provide customers with well loved furnishing. Linda Campbell expanded The Cottage from its original location in Historic Leesburg when she moved to Lucketts. To prepare for the new location, Campbell completed a number of renovations to create an atmosphere that is cottage and farmhouse inspired.

The Cottage includes the main house as well as outdoor open air sheds for customers to shop.  42410 Stumptown Rd.  Leesburg, VA 20176



Open every day (except Tuesday) 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Outside the Window established by Holli Rathman, is a dealer at The Cottage.   Inspired by a love of typography, OW has rescued and hand-painted thousands of old wooden windows.

Mother’s Day in Northern Virginia

From bespoke flowers to flaunting the latest fashions, this Mother’s Day is your chance to wow mom.

Creswick relies on intuition when helping her clients select the perfect gifts for their loved ones: “Whether I like something or not, I always know when I have found what I am looking for when I see it.” Here, the style and shopping guru shares some of her favorite shops for Mother’s Day Gifts:
