Coming to Rare Book School? My house is 1.3 miles from Alderman Library, on a quiet street close to restaurants and the campus shuttle. Very high quality foam sofa bed. Note to other guests: my listing is limited to RBS attendees. Thanks!

The space

It's a two-story house with four bedrooms upstairs, one of which will be yours. The bedroom has hardwood floors, a queen-sized bed, bureau, bookcase, and armoire. The bathroom is shared with your host and is down the hall; there is a second bathroom downstairs.

Guest access

You are free to use the kitchen while you are here; it has a gas stove and room in the fridge for your groceries. I will have coffee available in the morning. Downstairs is a comfortable living room for relaxing, and a large front porch for hanging out into the evening when it cools off. Upstairs is a comfy window seat just outside your room and a library down the hall with lots of books.

Interaction with guests

I will be around while you are here and am happy to give advice on Charlottesville, give you a ride to get groceries, and so on.

I have two sweet, funny, indoor-only cats, and guests will to be responsible for helping me keep them inside by closing doors firmly and entering and exiting the house quickly.

I had a great stay with Molly! Her place is clean and bright and walking distance from UVA. Ask Molly about her library; she has a really interesting collection!

Staying with Molly during my week in Charlottesville was absolutely wonderful. She was a kind and gracious host who went out of her way to make me feel at home and make sure that I was comfortable. I highly recommend staying at Molly's place!

Molly is a kind and gracious host, with excellent recommendations about the area. She was always available for any questions or needs that we had, and we had great conversations with her. The house is very comfortable and the neighborhood feels safe. We will stay with her again if we are in the area.

My stay with Molly was such a delight! The room was perfect and the bed was super comfortable. She's got a great kitchen and two very sweet cats. I enjoyed walking to Alderman Library from her house--it only took about 20-25 minutes. There was also a free "trolley" that I took a couple of times, which was nice. I hope I'm able to come back to RBS and stay with her again!

My stay at Molly's house was wonderful. She's a great hostess, helpful and accommodating. I would definitely come back again when I decode to take another class at RBS. I also would recommend it to others. Thank you for making my visit to Virginia so pleasant!

Molly was a kind and welcoming host. Her house was very comfortable, clean, and was a short walk or trolley trip from the UVA campus. She happily recommended restaurants, book stores and local museums, and generously gave me a ride to the store to buy groceries for my stay. I highly recommend this host, especially folks visiting for programming at UVA or the Rare Book School.

Staying at Molly's 'Bibliophile Bungalow' was wonderful! Very comfortable bed, bright spacious bathroom, and two friendly cats to make my stay better. Easy walking distance to campus (or take the free trolley). Great experience.

I am a rare book and manuscript librarian and scholar. I am friendly and outgoing, and I travel quite a bit for my job. I like to see as much as I can of the places I visit, and when possible I like to walk everywhere. My most recent trip was to Iceland and Denmark. I am originally from Berkeley, California, and I lived in Austin, Texas for six years before moving to Charlottesville, where I enjoy the beautiful landscape and rich history. I am a daytime tourist (no nightlife for me) and a quiet, respectful guest.
