Charlottesville cabin description

The 'Treehouse' is a small, charming, rustic, 2 story house on stilts. There are air conditioning window units, for the summer, and a woodstove and space heaters for the winter. Firewood provided. Each floor is 12 ft x 12 ft. Downstairs there is a queen sized futon bed, a woodstove, and a small kitchen (with refridgerator, toaster oven, and hotplate, and basic kitchen supplies including spices, tea and coffee), and a table. The upstairs is accessible by a steep staircase. It has a queen-sized bed, a dresser and a desk.

There is a wrap-around porch with a couch and a great view of the creek, and the surrounding greenery. The bathroom is located in an enclosed room on the porch (toilet and sink.) The hot, private outdoor shower is adjacent on the porch. Unusual! And yes, we do have guests in the winter! There is a heater in the bathroom adjacent, so you can go from the hot shower straight into the warm bathroom, while enjoying the fresh outdoor air!

We are located 1 mile from the downtown mall in Charlottesville, and across the street from a lovely riverside trail. A creek, black walnut tree with a swing, vegetable garden and 3 free-range chickens are in the large yard. (Sweet chickens sleep under the Treehouse in their coop.)

Thomas Jefferson's Monticello is 10 minutes away, and many fabulous restaurants are in walking distance (10 minute walk.) Access to the lovely Riverside Trail is just across the street. Great place to walk dogs, bike and stroll.

Small 'Big Green Egg' grill on porch, on bus line, WiFi.

The adjacent loghouse (see photo) is also for rent in the Fall 2014. Spacious 3BR/2BA. $175/nt. Ask for details. It is also listed with photos on Airbnb.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2004

                          About the owner: She is an English as a Second Language Teacher. Loves to dance and travel. He is a former army helicopter pilot, and operates a Chimney/Woodstove business. Loves to spend time with family and the outdoors.

                          Why the Owner Chose Charlottesville:
                          Charlottesville is a wonderful place to live

                          The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                          Peaceful, green setting that feels like the country, but is 1 mile from downtown. Nice to watch the wildlife in the small, adjacent creek. On Wednesdays in the summer and fall the farmers market is set up 2 blocks away with fresh produce and handmade products. Wine country is around the corner, with lovely vineyards. The Blue Ridge Mountains and its scenic hiking trails surround us. Last but not least, Monticello, Thomas Jefferson's home is 15 minutes away - an endlessly fascinating and beautiful place to visit..
