Located in the historic Locust Grove neighborhood in Downtown Charlottesville, this is a two bedroom two and half bath brand new yet quaint two story house. Plenty of natural light and modern conveniences filled with eclectic furniture and vintage accessories. Please note, two shorthair cats also live here and will most likely be here provided you are willing to feed and love. Not a cat person? Ask me about arrangements, but highly allergic people probably should not read further.
Master bedroom with queen size bed (2), master bath with double vanity, writing desk and walk in closet. Guest room is on the second floor with a comfortable queen size bed (2), a cozy reading area and closet along with a Jack and Jill bathroom with two vanities and a full size tub/shower. The landing is also a nice area to enjoy and spread out into and it has a sleeper/sofa that can accommodate two small kids or an additional adult; there is no door as it is at the top of the stairs so not its own room or as private. The living/dining is in the main area upon entry into the house set up as an open layout style. There is a nice dining table that accommodates four or more with provided leaves; amenities include a 32 inch HDTV, DVD player, several stereos plus turntable with vinyl records available, fully equipped kitchen with blender, juicer, toaster, range/microwave, french press (or coffee maker available upon request) as well as tea accessories, stainless steel refrigerator with water filter system. Free wi-fi, washer/dryer, gas fireplace, ceiling fans in all rooms, central air, artfully decorated, top down/bottom up blinds, large back deck with outdoor seating and grill, front porch with table and chairs and wicker chair and settee. Clean sheets and towels provided, free parking for several cars. Close to Charlottesville's historic Downtown Mall & Belmont area via car (2-3 minutes/2 miles), walking or biking distance too if you have more time, or there is a bus stop 2 blocks from house. Less than 3 miles to UVA Grounds and Monticello is less than 5 miles away--about 10 minutes by car. Perfect place for short-term stay with access to C-ville happenings and restaurants downtown, to UVA or a quick ride to the interstate. Location is ideal as its close to downtown without the hussle and bussle. And for those that enjoy nature, there is a section of the Rivanna trail just a block away to hop onto that follows the river and is an easy and peaceful walk in either direction. Please contact me with any questions. No smoking inside and no pets allowed. Again, I do have two short-haired lovable indoor cats. If willing, you can love and feed them or arrangements may possibly be made. Must not be allowed outside.
I also offer the option of sharing the house and renting just the guest room for 1-2 people. This means sharing the kitchen, bathroom and common areas as well during the stay. If interested in such an arrangement, please send me a message to learn more about this option.

must realize my two sweet cats will most likely stay on the premises, assuming you are not allergic and don't mind feeding. they are also strictly indoor only cats.
The house was cute and comfy, in a very quiet neighborhood and had a lovely back yard. The beds were comfortable and Cary was gracious in leaving coffee and condiments in the refrigerator for our use. We were taken aback by dirty dishes in the dishwasher with a note letting us know they were dirty and one cat who howled a bit at night. We agreed to having the cats as we are cat lovers, but did not know how noisy the one cat was.
Cary was a wonderful host and very responsive. The house was cozy and adorable. We loved the artwork and decor. My kids really enjoyed cat sitting Iggy and Monkey for the weekend too! Very sweet cats. Cary also very kindly mailed us back all of the random items we left behind which was so sweet! Highly recommended host and home.
Cary's home was an absolute joy to have as a temporary home during our weekend getaway in Charlottesville. We adored everything about the place. The decor was wonderful, the beds comfortable, great kitchen, lots of bathrooms so everyone could get ready without stepping on top of each other, great backyard with a large table where we enjoyed a meal together. Really cute neighborhood and nice neighbors, very close to downtown. And we loved Iggy and Monkey like they were our own, we all wished we could have taken them with us, they were so sweet. I would stay here again in a heartbeat. Everyone in our party (5 people total) really loved Cary's house and was really impressed with the overall experience.
Thanks, Stephanie! I'm SO glad you guys had fun and enjoyed my place. Iggy and Monkey were lucky to have such awesome and kind guests to take care of them. I appreciate your kind review and again, you are welcome again anytime it works for a nice Charlottesville getaway! Hope you got to a winery or two!
Cary was an absolute pleasure to work with throughout the booking process, and her home in Charlottesville is adorable. We greatly enjoyed our stay, and we will certainly be back next time we return to UVA!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Cary's place: her home is very centrally located and within easy walking distance to the downtown mall. Her home is very clean and accommodating. And her cats are super friendly and sweet. We would definitely stay again!
Great place, great host! Cary's cats Iggy and Monkey were super friendly and fun. Super close location for access to the downtown mall.
My three friends and I loved staying at Cary's place! The house was clean, cute, and very comfortable. The location is great for exploring Cville, especially the Downtown Mall area. Parking was really easy, too. Cary really went out of her way to meet our needs; I couldn't have asked for a better host. I would definitely stay there again!
What a lovely home! I was really surprised when I entered Cary´s house. It´s so nice, cosy, clean and comfortable! The rooms are decorated with so much charme and esprit. We really enjoied our stay there. The kitchen is very well equipped.
I highly recommend a stay here. Communication was easy and effective.
Awesome!!! Thanks, Cary!
Cary was a really great host and was very accommodating and helpful. Her place has a great location in Charlottesville, and is a really comfortable house
My group of 6 had a great 3-night experience staying in Cary's house, which was extremely well-appointed, very clean, & nicely decorated. We found the front porch to be a particularly nice amenity (didn't have much of a chance to use the big backyard) & the house was convenient to the Main St. mall where most of the events for Look3 were located. We were not able to meet Cary in person because she had to deal with a family situation, but communication was quick & effective.
