About this listing
We recently returned to AirBnB hosting, and are offering our Comfy, Cozy Suite at a great price to attract guests and positive reviews. With its king bed, overstuffed couch, writing nook, and private bathroom, you'll rest easy in the suite between your visits to Charlottesville's many cultural and outdoor attractions. Welcome!
Enjoy our cozy den-like guest room with its fireplace, books, king bed, and private bathroom with bath/shower. We're in a peaceful semi-rural neighborhood outside of Charlottesville: 10 minutes to UVA, 15 minutes to historic downtown, 20 minutes to Shenandoah National Park (to the west) or Monticello (to the east). There is no public transit to our neighborhood, but there is good taxi service. We have broadband internet that usually works fine for Netflix.
This is a great location for folks who like some green space. We're convenient not only to Charlottesville, but also to scenic western Albemarle County. Runners and cyclists are particularly fond of this part of the county. If you'd rather exercise indoors, we have a top-of-the-line Precor elliptical machine.
We are early risers (7:00 AM), and though we're not loud you should expect some normal noise in the morning. Your room adjoins our kitchen and living area.
You are welcome to use the kitchen for light food preparation, and we are open to discussing full kitchen use for guests who are staying more than 2 nights.
We have a dog, Maeve, who may bark when you first arrive. She switches quickly to wanting to be petted.
There are no nightstands by the bed, but there are lights on each side. The room has a writing nook, chest of drawers, and a coat rack on which you can hang your finery.
Our neighborhood is middle class, semi-rural, and quiet. Your room has views of a funky rustic house down the lane, lots of trees, and mountains.
We are friendly and welcoming, and will see that you have what you need for a comfortable and pleasurable stay. And we're busy with work and all the rest, so we won't be in your way!

Interaction with Guests
When we are at home we can offer suggestions about local amenities and services. We are also sometimes available by phone to assist guests.
Perfectly situated for visitors interested in both the mountains and the city . . . we're about equi-distant to each.
There is no public transit to our neighborhood, but there is good taxi service.
No partying, please. No smoking indoors. No candles. We are flexible and friendly, but we have full lives and cannot devote a great deal of time to our BnB guests beyond assuring their comfort and sharing our knowledge of the area. Light kitchen use is welcome. Our dining areas are comfortable, and in good weather you can eat out on our porch.
About the Host, Maggie And John
We are friendly hosts. We'll see to your comfort and we'll share our picks of the best of Charlottesville and central Virginia. And we're busy with work and life, so we won't be in your way!
We enjoy all kinds of music. John plays Appalachian fiddle tunes on harmonica and likes to read, meditate, and dance. Maggie enjoys reading and writing fiction. John is from California, Maggie is from Dublin, and we are grateful for the rewards and challenges of a cross-cultural marriage!
