Wonderful, private two bedroom suite in historic home on Rivanna River only one mile from Charlottesville's downtown Mall.

The Space


Two rooms with one bedroom, private bath and entrance with kitchenette and yoga or exercise studio above bedroom at street level. Access to park-like backyard and river. Breakfast room either adjacent to the bedroom or on one of three outdoor patios or porches (or down by the river) all only one mile from Downtown Charlottesville. Small frig in bedroom and larger one in living room/studio above. Wireless internet included. Easy parking in front of home. Walk, bike, bus or cab it to downtown; even shorter walk to park and neighborhood restaurants.

Moon River is an historic home circa 1830 close to so many amenities for your enjoyment :
Riverside Park with jogging trail along the Rivanna River is only 500 feet around the corner.
The city bus stops two houses away and can take you to the Downtown Mall or the University of Virginia.
There are five or six restaurants in our neighborhood only a quarter to a half mile walk from here and there is an inexpensive produce store for fruits and vegetables.
The City pool is open in the summer and is just up the street.
Of course, mosy visitors will end up on the Downtown Mall only a mile away.
You can also hail a brand new hybrid taxi with your smart phone (I own the company)....

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Roger was a generous host. I asked to have a packages delivered before my arrival and he was happy to do it. He also made suggestions for our home search. His place is in a wonderful quiet location beside the river and yet close enough to walk to the center of town.

  • We had a great time at Moon River! Roger was able to accommodate us fairly last minute on a busy weekend, and our stay was better than any hotel room we could have booked. The house is full of history, the bed was comfortable, and access to the porches and hammock near the river were wonderful perks! Roger was a great host and communication was easy. Of those who are concerned about the cat, he doesn't stay in your quarters and the house is well maintained so I had a couple allergic sniffles in the beginning that went away quickly on its own.

  • Our first AirBnB experience was a start on the right foot! We had a great time in Charlottesville. Roger's space was fantastic and just what we needed for the weekend away. Comfortable accommodations with a beautiful view and easily accessible location made this spot an excellent find. A busy weekend meant only meeting Roger minutes before departing, but I wish we had had more time to chat. Highly recommend!

  • Roger showed himself to be a prompt responder, a great host, (email hidden) to the Charlottesville community. We look forward to seeing him again!

  • Roger was a great host - very easy to communicate with and willing to let us bring our chocolate lab for the weekend. We were bummed to not have had the change to meet Roger in person, he seemed like he would be a very nice and cool person to meet, but we were just so busy with UVa homecoming weekend events that it never happened. Thanks Roger!

  • Roger was very flexible with our check-in time-we got Into town early and he was happy to come meet us and show us around. He has a great location near the Rivanna river and breakfast on the terrace was beautiful. I would recommend the Moon River guest room to Charlottesville visitors.

  • My boyfriend and I came to Charlottesville for a weekend getaway from DC and were pleased that we decided to stay at Roger's place. Roger was very hospitable and his place is wonderful and relaxing! As others have said, the bed is amazingly comfortable for any bed, and I am shocked it was a pullout couch. The place was clean and located far enough from the pedestrian mall to be quiet and relaxing, but close enough to walk or take a cheap cab. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it highly to others.

  • Roger is a great host and the location is ideal. The pull-out bed is very comfy and having access to the extra space in the yoga studio and the outside deck is a plus!

  • Roger was a great host and Jack was just hilarious. We enjoyed the location of the house. It's was perfect for us, just down the street from the Mall. Very close to a trail that runs along the river. If you enjoy historic renovations and post-industrial (clean) sites in a clean and safe neighborhood, this is a photographers dream. Roger was very open and inviting showing us around the house and the backyard. People in C-ville are so nice and welcoming. The bed was incredibly comfortable, we slept really well. The fridge was stocked with breakfast food. Looking forward to a return visit.
