My 5 day stay at the Carriage House was superb.

  • 5 of 5

I thoroughly enjoyed the Carriage House's beautifully decorated loft-style one bedroom apartment. It's kitchen and chic great room with open floor plan and vaulted ceiling is very inviting to spend time reading, watching TV and connecting to the fast internet. The granite appointed kitchen with its conveniences and art work made it a pleasure to use. The roomy bedroom has sliding door access to the secluded deck which is surrounded by high-canopy trees, providing total privacy. The great room also accesses the large deck, allowing you to open both sets of doors for nice breezes, and take advantage of the fresh air. Whole apartment air conditioner was very quiet. Parking my car in the garage below the apartment is a luxury I have not experienced at other cottages. Walking distance to restaurants was nice for exercise as well riding my bike in Charlottesville's town bike lanes and off road trails was perfect for getting around. Not a single complaint. I highly recommend the Carriage House when staying in Charlottesville and will stay again myself during future visits.

Great apartment and kitchen.

  • 4 of 5

Great upstairs apartment fairly close to downtown. Not quite walkable. Loved the kitchen and deck. The bedroom was nice and comfortable. Our only complaint was the bathroom was a little dark. The immediate area is just OK. The place was clean and kept up nicely.

Great place!!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place to call home for a couple of days or even longer. We were there for 3 days in September during Family Weekend at UVa. It had everything we needed, including a washer and dryer to do our daughter's dirty laundry!! Very quiet, and a quick drive to anything near downtown Charlottesville or UVa grounds. Will not hesitate to come back again!

A restful retreat

  • 5 of 5

Now that I am in Africa, I miss this place every day. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at this carriage house. It is perfectly located. I could walk to the most fabulous gym and to the downtown mall. It backs to gorgeous woods and is near a Whole Foods. The staff of Stay Charlottesville were very kind and helpful. I have only one suggestion. I would create a welcome packet for guests that includes a small map of Charlottesville (I actually did not realize I was within walking distance of so much), recommended restaurants, and a how to on using the tv, cable and stereo. I have stayed in a lot of temporary housing and these welcome kits are a godsend. I highly recommend this carriage house for a romantic getaway or just a quiet retreat. Thank you for a nice stay.

Just passing by...

My husband and I were driving back from Connecticut to Alabama. We wanted to find a location midway on our trip and that's how we ended up in Charlottesville. We decided to rent the Carriage House to have more room to relax and unwind. The location of the house behind a main residence was perfect because it provided us with a lot of privacy. I enjoyed the airy and spacious feel of the open ceilings in the main rooms of the house. The distressed furnishings and antiques throughout the house added a unique charm to the place. The updated kitchen, Wifi, large LCD TV, and other amenities were definitely a plus! Not to mention the ample supply of towels and other necessities. A few of my concerns were the lack of TLC around the place and the mirror in the bathroom was hung too high. But if given another opportunity, we would consider staying at the Carriage House again.

Ridge St was named for its geographic location in Charlottesville as they have both views of Monticello mountain as well views off to the west of the university. Homes on Ridge St were built back in the early 1900's and were sought after because of the belief that on Ridge St you would find the not only fresh air but a cool breeze.
