About this listing
In a quiet area, this warm upstairs bedroom has a full private bath, with dog-friendly outdoor space. Located less than 2 miles from downtown Charlottesville and next to Rivanna Trail. The bed's a full futon. Must be pet and gay-friendly.
Our space comes with an adorable French Bulldog Dash, who is a fun and friendly dog. Our neighborhood is close to downtown but not on a busy street--in fact described as a quiet street. Walking trails and creek nearby. Please keep in mind if you are thinking of bringing your dog, the dog must be friendly to other dogs, cats, and furniture/belongings.
Guests are welcome in the kitchen and living room. They will have mostly sole access to the upstairs, but sometimes we need to go into the office across the upstairs guest room.
Interaction with Guests
If we are here and the guest(s) comes downstairs, we will converse with guests, just check in with them and see if anything is needed. Otherwise we leave guests alone to enjoy their space.
It's at the edge of town, it's older, it is away from the main traffic areas...the houses are modest to very nice, there are full trees and wooded areas nearby, and always someone walking their dog or jogging.
Bus stop 3 blocks away. Some have walked or biked to and from town. Parking is ample. We have a fire hydrant out front but routinely our guests have parked in front of it without hassle.
Other Things to Note
Park wherever you like, that includes in the driveway (ours is the one on the left facing the house); in front of the fire hydrant (no one tickets), or across the street along the wooden fence of our neighbors. If you do park in front of the fire hydrant, just pull into the grass as the street is narrow.
Turn lights off when not using, especially if we appear to be sleep and lights have been left on for you for your late night return. *Exception: sometimes we will purposely leave a light on in the guest's bedroom (low wattage small light) to avoid stumbling in the dark to an unfamiliar space.
No inviting strangers over.
