The Space

Electronic air cleaner for healthy breathing. Two bedrooms available in newly renovated house. Both bedrooms have separate access to the bathroom. There is a third room has a 3/4 sized bed (between a single and a double) so is good for one person or two people who want to be close. However, I sometimes stay in that room which has a separate entrance and commode. I supply linens, towels, etc.

There is also a pull-out queen-sized couch in the living room.

Easy access to downtown Charlottesville. 1.3 mi walk or drive, two public buses within 5 blocks. Paved off-street parking available for 4 cars.
A wonderful host (retired Latin teacher and family farmer) who can answer any questions.

Interaction with Guests

Complete privacy is assured. If I stay in house, I have separate entrance and bath. I've lived in Charlottesville for 30 years, so am happy to answer any questions and offer local tourist advice.
