Built in 1933 and recently renovated, the Belmont Cottage is perfect for your vacation, visit or extended stay in Charlottesville. Just steps away from the Historic Downtown Mall and fine restaurants, the house is right down the street from the University of Virginia and nearby Monticello, Skyline Drive and many vineyards and wineries.
This unique two bedroom, one bath home is in the heart of the Belmont restaurant district and features a bright screened porch perfect for reading and relaxing as well as a private yard. Several amazing restaurants and a local latin-inspired coffee shop are a block away (the best donuts in town are two blocks away!)
You will be away from the noise of the University or the Mall scene, but within an easy and pleasant walk or trolley ride of both.

About the owner: My wife and I met at UVA and stayed in Charlottesville after graduating and getting married. We fell in love with this adorable house shortly after we were married and it was the first home we lived in. We lived here for several years until we needed more space for our family - at which point we moved a few blocks down the street. And we couldn't bring ourselves to sell the cottage.
We were fortunate to watch the growth the Belmont neighborhood and the opening of several wonderful businesses in the neighborhood.
Why the Owner Chose Charlottesville: Several of our favorite restaurants, anywhere, are just across the street from this house and walking to the Farmers Market and Downtown Mall is still a favorite event.
If you love food, this house and the Belmont Neighborhood won't disappoint you.
UVA and everything else Charlottesville has to offer is easily accessible and the house makes for a great base away from the bustle of the students.
The Unique Benefits at this House: This isn't a bed-and-breakfast, but might as well be. One of our favorite coffee and breakfast spots is across the street with latin-inspired coffee, cooked breakfast and a neighborhood community vibe.
