About this listing
Conveniently located four blocks from the Amtrack train station off Main street, this large 1920s house is a great central location to come and go from during your stay in Charlottesville. The apartment is upstairs with lots of light.
The upstairs apartment of this large 1920s home offers one or two bedrooms (full mattresses) plus a full bathroom and a kitchen. The living room has a futon and so the apartment can sleep a total of 6 people.
The bedrooms offer a relaxing, tidy and simple environment with layered fabric curtains to encourage a restful morning if you prefer to sleep in past sunrise.
The living room gets lots of morning and afternoon sun and is a relaxing place to read or drink coffee or visit.
The large front porch has rocking chairs, a bench seat and a table and is a nice place to relax, read, visit, and enjoy morning coffee. In the summertime, this porch is a delight with flowers and shrubs growing in the gardens.
The apartment is a 5-10 minute stroll to many restaurants and shops on Main Street and another 5 minutes takes you to the Historic Downtown Mall. The University is approximately a 15-20 minute walk.
Note about pricing:
* The price is increased for U.Va home football games and other occasions in the city/university, such as graduation.
* If two people are renting the apartment and they plan to use both bedrooms, there is an additional $40 charge per night. Otherwise, if two people will only need one bedroom, the cost is as advertised and the other bedroom will not be accessible during their stay.
* This house has another listing for the downstairs apartment which is a one bedroom that is listed separately. If you are interested in this apartment or in renting the whole house, please look at my profile to see the second listing. It is called "Perfect for football game weekends" and the listing number is (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) which you can put in the search box and it should populate. A french door with curtains separates the apartments so if you have two parties that know each other but would like their own spaces, this is a good option.
Guests will access the apartment through the front door entrance. The downstairs apartment has a separate entrance from the back of the house. Spaces are separated and private.
One parking space is available off street. If another parking space is needed, please talk to the host to see if it will be feasible for the weekend.

The house is located in the neighborhood of Fifeville, just four blocks from West Main Street (by the Main Street Market), a 5/10 minute walk to the Downtown Mall, and a 20 minute walk to UVA and the Corner. Walk to Amtrak and Greyhound. Right by the free trolley line. It is an eclectic neighborhood, fairly historic, gentrifying as more people want to buy close to the center of town.
