Charming Carriage House in historic Dilworth just steps away from shops/dining!

Bedrooms 1
Space 980 sq ft
Property type bungalow


About the property

Cozy, but spacious, with hosts who offer highly personalized service to guests.

This 2-story carriage house is located in historic Dilworth with a private entrance, lush patio with goldfish pond, and the perfect retreat for singles, couples, and small families. Inside you'll have access to SmartTV, Uverse and wii games. Plus, you'll be just minutes away from dining, shops, parks, museums, Carolina Panthers and Charlotte Knights stadiums in uptown Charlotte--all accessible by foot or light rail.

The Space

Downstairs living area includes a sofa that easily converts to a full bed, along with a workspace, while upstairs is a bathroom with shower, well-stocked kitchenette, office or children's art area, living area with entertainment center and queen-sized sofa bed with top-of-the-line memory foam mattress and designer bedding.

Guest Access

Guests have sole access to the carriage house, access to the courtyard with patio table and chairs, tranquil goldfish pond, and garden seating. Guests can grill out in the warm months, or enjoy roasting marshmallows in the wood fire pit on cold, winter nights (all provided at your request!). You can enter via a private gate that backs up to a small alley just 30 yards from street parking, or access closer parking if desired.

Interaction with Guests

We are available to make your stay more than just comfortable; we consider it our goal to ensure your experience goes beyond just great. A complimentary bottle of wine is our welcome give to you, and we can provide most anything else you need with just a moment's notice. Both of us work during the day, and oftentimes from home, but are typically at home in the evenings and weekends. We live in the main house about 15 feet from the carriage house. We're also easily accessible via text, phone or email.

The Neighborhood

Dilworth is one of the most popular neighborhoods in Charlotte. Our street is lined with 100-year-old bungalows and tons of trees. One block away is East Blvd. which features dozens of unique restaurants, cafes, shops, and other retail options. Bikes are provided for your enjoyment, or you can walk the 2 or 3 blocks to dinner, or to beautiful Latta Park for a picnic, game of basketball, tennis or playground time for your children.

Getting Around

The light rail is 1/2 mile from the house and in about 3 stops you'll be near uptown Charlotte--Carolina Panthers stadium, Charlotte Knights baseball, museums, nightlife and more. Or take an Uber for about $5.00. We're 15 minutes from Charlotte-Douglas airport, and 15 minutes from SouthPark Mall.

Other Things to Note

Coffee, tea and hot cocoa are provided for all of our guests, along with delicious pastries and homemade bread. Our outdoor private patio is perfect to enjoy a fresh, hot cup early in the morning, or a glass of wine in the evenings.

Why Jeff Weiss chose Dilworth

We purchased this historic home, built at the turn of the century, and renovated the carriage house to make it a welcoming space for guests and family.

We loved the little extras that just made our experience special. The location was great, short walk to catch the light rail. Would stay here again!

Beautiful place. Very nice and quiet neighborhood.

Four stars die to no true bedroom or bed. The pullout is adequate however a true bed would make this an even better experience.

The owner is responsive and accommodating.

Great affordable location for visiting Charlotte

  • 5 of 5

We loved the convenience of staying in Dillworth. The house had everything we needed but keep in mind that you’ll be sleeping on a fold out bed and showering in a very small shower. If you know these things going in, then you’ll be very happy with the house.

Beautiful neighborhood!

  • 5 of 5

I couldn’t decide between a hotel downtown (or as Charlotte calls it, “uptown”) or this HomeAway house - and I definitely made the right decision. Dilworth is a beautiful neighborhood and I enjoyed a couple leisurely strolls to nearby restaurants.

The house was clean and cozy - make sure you read the listing carefully to understand that the bed situation entails two fold out couches. I found the upstairs couch more comfortable to sleep on if I didn’t fold it out. :) Also, most of the carriage house is accessible via a flight of stairs, so it’s not a good choice for those who have trouble with stairs.

I enjoyed 100% privacy during my stay and found this house a great place to relax in between outings.

Cozy Rental in Beautiful Neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

This is our favorite rental we've found on VRBO. The carriage house was very comfortable and had everything we needed. Great restaurants are nearby and it's just a couple miles to the Spectrum Center. My wife and I also enjoyed running through the neighborhood and along the Little Sugar Creek Greenway.
