The Space

A comfortable private room with double bed & bath (shower only). Close to downtown Charlottesville, U of VA & UVA Hospital and walking distance to the football stadium and much of UVA. Great WiFi! Quiet safe neighborhood on the bus line. Street parking at house available for up to 2 cars.

We are on the bus line and only blocks from the bus stop for the city, UVA and the free trolley so no car needed if you so prefer.

Just blocks off US 29 which is right off I 64 so very accessible from the south, east or west. But a straight shot if you are coming from US 29 heading south. Monticello is only 10 to 15 minutes away!

We are an older couple who are on site most of the time. I work at home as a web designer and my husband is disabled/retired. We don't mind providing travel information or guiding to our favorite restaurants and places. We might even be convinced to socialize with you if you're feeling the need of local company!

You cannot be afraid of or allergic to dogs. They are small, but they will not be confined away from you. You will be sharing their yard. Do follow our lead when reacting with the dogs as they are rescues and need specific handling.

Microwave & small fridge furnished. Private exterior basement entrance with access to washer & dryer. The exterior entrance is down a series of wide steps to the back of the house that can have standing water and even mud on them.

We've also stocked the room with books and games in case you need something to do while you're here!

Buses/trolleys: search the internet for charlottesville free trolley to get the schedule. We are on city bus route 4 - you can find that on the same website as well. (not allowed to post links to websites here)

Interaction with Guests

We can / do socialize with our guests - we let you be the initiator so that you get as much or little attention as you want.

The Neighborhood

It's a closed subdivision with little traffic - very quiet and peaceful. Great for walking, near several parks and a school with a playground.

Getting Around

City buses run through the subdivision at the end of the street. UVA buses and the free trolley run several blocks up the way - easy walk to those as well.

House Rules
No smoking
Not suitable for pets
No parties or events
May not be safe or suitable for children (0-12 years)
Check-in time is 1PM - 7PM.

Must maintain a low noise level - no rowdiness or partying. You must make friends with the little doggies because the entrance is through the fenced in backyard - their territory!

If you have any level of discomfort with dogs, you may not like our overly friendly animals!

Please remember, this is not a hotel; this is our home. We expect our guests to be considerate and polite as one would be when visiting a friend. We are not servants nor are we running a hotel service.

Though we try to provide as much as possible in the room we do not guarantee toiletries - only linens. If you need something, we will try to provide but cannot promise that we can.

Also, bearing that in mind, we find that we have to mention that the linens and toilet paper are not being paid for by a large hotel chain. Use only that you need and leave the towels behind!

We are Georgia natives who love Charlottesville. My husband is disabled and I work at home as a web designer. We enjoy having guests because it breaks the monotony and frequently get to know some interesting people!
