One of 3 rooms with shared kitchen & bath, screened porch & deck. Continental breakfast features local & organic. Inquire about pets.

Inquire about massage.

We're a mile from the Historic Downtown Mall, 2 from UVA, & 5 minutes from Monticello.

Guest access

Shared bathroom, full kitchen. We provide local bread and jams, fresh organic fruit, eggs from the Farmer's Market, oats and fair trade coffee and tea. Our screened porch is wonderful for breakfasts. Our backyard opens into Meade Park, with walking trail, playground and an outdoor water park.

We are on the city bus line, with a stop just a block away. The Downtown Mall is a 15 minute walk, and is quite bikeable.

Smoking outdoors only, please!

Interaction with guests

We love to socialize, and we know that guests may just want to relax and unwind. We live in a separate apartment downstairs, and are often available to chat.

With three rooms, there are often other guests around to meet and get to know. We have had guests from Europe, South America, the Middle East and Asia, providing a rich environment for learning and meeting new people.

Other things to note

Ask about massage! Flame has been a massage therapist for 24 years, and offers sessions to our guests at $35 per half hour. This must be arranged in advance, of course, and we can't guarantee she'll be available. Please call or email to arrange an appointment.

Lovely house with a very welcoming energy, just like the hosts. The bed was a little firmer than I prefer (being a side sleeper) but I still had a good night's sleep. I will very likely stay here again.

Nice stay, the hosts were friendly and communicative. The self-serve breakfast was a plus. One of the reasons we chose this airbnb was because it was advertised as being only a 15 minute walk to the downtown mall. However, it was more of a 20-25 minute. I've only stayed at a couple of airbnbs so far, and this one felt more like a hostel to me. It seems like they get a lot more guests, as they have a whole check-in procedure and also it just feels like many people have passed through here and stayed in this space. Overall we are grateful for finding a spot last minute and they were great hosts & very communicative, but we should have looked a little harder for a spot a bit closer to town & one that felt a little less lived-in.

Amazing hosts. Helped us find our way around, and suggested good places to eat. Everything we could have needed was available in the home.

We were only at Raven and Flame's home very briefly but it was the perfect stay for a short period of time. Raven was very detailed in his tour of the house for us which was very helpful to know how things went around there. Would stay there again!

Raven is an innkeeper, a candle-maker, and a therapist in Charlottesville, VA. Flame is a massage therapist and artist. We've run Fairhaven Guesthouse for three years now. It keeps us very busy!

We heard about AirBnB from a guest in our previous hostel (Alexander House). We've been excited about trying it out.
