About this listing
One of 3 rooms with shared kitchen & bathroom, screened porch & deck. Continental breakfast features local & organic. Inquire about pets.
We're a mile from the Historic Downtown Mall, 2 from UVA, & 10 minutes from Monticello.
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.
We are in a quiet, residential neighborhood, just blocks from downtown. Behind our house is a lovely city park and water park.
Fairhaven is on the city bus line. We're also only a mile away from the Downtown Mall, an easy and pleasant walk. We have plenty of on-street parking.
Other Things to Note
Ask about massage! Flame is a massage therapist, and offers sessions to our guests at $65 per 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.
I'm an innkeeper, a candle-maker, and a therapist in Charlottesville, VA. My wife is a massage therapist and artist. We now run two inns in town, Alexander House and Fairhaven Guesthouse. It keeps us very busy!
We're just become empty nesters - with one in college and one out on his own for the first time.
I heard about AirBnB from a guest in our hostel (Alexander House). I've been excited about trying it out.
