One of Lynchburg's oldest homes, a colonial built around 1820. With its rustic style, 200 year old exposed brick and unique vibe, this private apt we call "the Cocoon" is 8 blocks to downtown and 10 min to Liberty Univ & Univ of Lynchburg. Private entrance and on-street parking. Proceeds from your stay will be used to complete the unfinished & unoccupied house above apt. Not everyone will feel comfortable in our lower income neighborhood, so PLEASE READ FULL LISTING BEFORE BOOKING.
