This 344 sq ft cottage is a brand new tiny home concept space, boasting an airy entry, living area, storage landing, stocked kitchenette, bathroom and sleeping loft. Perfect for 1-4 people looking for a relaxed, efficient and comfortable place to stay minutes from UVA Grounds and Historic Downtown Charlottesville.
This cottage is just really cool.
It is a new renovation of what was once a storage shed. It is energy efficient and insulated and feels like a tree house, even though it is on the ground. It is located behind the main house on a .75 acre lot in a family friendly neighborhood. A cute, private setting in the heart of Charlottesville!
On the interior, the ceilings are tall, which makes the space feel much larger than it is. The large windows allow for beautiful natural light and views of the surrounding trees and birds. There is plenty of space for 1-2 people, but 4 adventurous and close people could stay, and be comfortable. The beds and furnishings are comfortable and well appointed and linens and towels are provided.
There is central heating and air and a ceiling fan.
It is a very basic and relaxed space. There is no TV, but there is free Wifi so you could stream away on your phone, iPad, etc. The kitchenette has a microwave, small induction cook top, refrigerator freezer and a toaster oven. There are enough dishes and silverware, mugs, cups and wine glasses for up to 4 people.
One important note about the stairs to the loft, is that they are steep and you will need to take your time going up and down. Use the handrails and watch your noggin at the top. It's easier to come down them backwards, like you would a ladder on a boat. Toddlers and folks with knee or hip issues should not use them. You can also just decide to sleep on the futon in the living area if you do not wish to navigate the stairs. They are sturdy and well built, but they are not a standard stair case.
The hosts are a young family who live on the property and will leave you a key and will leave you alone, unless you need anything. :)
