Owners were very friendly and responsive to my concerns and timelines. The house was clean, beds were comfortable, and the surrounding area has lots of things to explore. Owners did a good job of making the place feel warm and inviting.

Very lovely home right in the heart of downtown Charlottesville!

  • 4 of 5

Very lovely home! Wonderful place to stay for the weekend in Charlottesville, especially given that it's only a five minute walk to the pedestrian mall with all the restaurants, coffee, shopping, etc so close! Owners were very nice and the house was extremely well kept and clean upon arrival. Great experience overall for a weekend away, would highly recommend!

Perfect place to explore the downtown mall!

  • 5 of 5

This house was absolutely perfect for my family to explore Charlottesville. It had 2 pretty large rooms that was perfect for me, my wife, my mother, and a 7-month old baby. It's everything you'd want from an older house: quaint, antique, homey...while not sacrificing modern comforts like an updated kitchen and electrical outlets. I know we will stay here again; we truly loved it!

This was the perfect place for the event we attended. This is a lovely home with beautiful yard space. The kitchen was perfect. Everything about this place was fantastic. I would highly recommend it to visitors to Charlottesville. It is located in walking distance to lots of places to eat.
