About this listing
Cheery suite with private entrance, consisting of bedroom, attached private screen porch & private full bathroom. Entirely separated from rest of house. Did I mention it's very private? 1.6 mi. from downtown. Fridge, electric kettle, two bikes for guest use, all-organic breakfast (coffee, hot donuts, fruit) included. Access to walking trails along Rivanna River just a few blocks away.
The feel of our house is woodsy cottage. Our house is steps away from access to the Rivanna Trail Network which encircles Charlottesville. It's also a beautiful 30 minute tree-lined walk to Downtown, or a fifteen minute bike ride. Two bicycles are available for use. The room has a queen bed. Most importantly, our family business is organic DONUTS. Complimentary hot coffee and donuts every morning. The house is on a cul-de-sac in a residential neighborhood. Ample parking. The screen porch connects with the bedroom, and has a table, games, a ceiling fan, and comfy chairs. The connected and private full bathroom has a shower but no bath. There is an electric kettle and small refrigerator in the room, ironing board/iron. Towels, sheets, and dishware/utensils provided. Sheets are 100% cotton. Maximum occupancy: 2 persons (Couple with small child is fine)
Guests have access to private room with private entrance, bathroom, and screen porch.
Interaction with guests
Hosts will be available, but not in your space or way. Your space is all yours. We love meeting new people, and don't mind the sounds of talking and laughter in the least. No need to tiptoe around! If you need to use something not available in the guest suite (ironing board, cutting board, ouija board or any other household item), just ask -- we'll be sincerely happy to make it available. We're also happy to give recommendations on restaurants, parks, trails, etc.
Other things to note
If you have a group, and want additional accommodations in the same neighborhood, I have two neighbors whom I know well, who have LOVELY airbnb rooms right across the street. I'm happy to share their info.
We own two dogs. They do not have access to the guest quarters or private guest yard. It's possible you will hear them barking although we do our best to keep them quiet when guests are here.
We are an active family with friends coming and going so during the day you may hear us going about our life, but we are generally quiet after 9pm. We are not at all bothered by late night arrivals or talk/laughter in the guest suite.
The golden rule should cover most territory but explicitly: No smoking. Maximum occupancy is two persons.

I'm a writer, my husband is a professional foodie - running a little organic donut business here in C-ville. We have three kids -- one every six years whether we need one or not. We have more books than shelves, more ideas than time, and more mint then garden. For the moment, we are enjoying living vicariously through other people's wild travel adventures, and look forward to hosting folks from near and far. We love talking history, politics, science, theatre, books and bratwurst; and playing pick-up games of four-square in the street.
