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.

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!
