Wonderful Bungalow in Great Location

  • 5 of 5

My family had such a wonderful time staying at this charming bungalow just a few blocks from the downtown mall in Charlottesville. The house is a cute, historic bungalow in a lovely neighborhood. Nell and Steve were so nice and responded to messages very quickly. I would highly recommend staying here!

Truly a home away from home

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived, we felt welcome and at home. The location of this property is ideal to walk into town for dinner, drinks and shopping. Wineries and breweries are a short drive away. The best part of our stay was drinking coffee on the porch each morning. The property feels like you are at home without the stress and distractions of actually being at home.

Couldn't have found a better spot. Would highly recommend it to any small family who wants to enjoy everything Charlottesville has to offer. Never needed the car. Walked everywhere or took the free trolley to UVA. Thanks you Nell and Steve.
