The space

A simple 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom (hence shared with home owners) townhouse located in a quiet area off of South Main Street on the bus route. Spare bedroom (blue room) with full size bed with memory foam topper (as in photo) at price listed. This room would be comfortable for 2 people. If you are 3 people and want to all be in one room, the "coral" room is available. There is an organic queen size bed and you may use a twin mattress to accommodate 1 more person. This room may also be used for just one or two people but you must pay for 3 guests regardless. If you prefer the "coral" room please indicate that in your request or it will be assumed you would like the blue room. There are 3 independent indoor/outdoor cats who live with me so you must be cat-friendly.

House is across the street from First and Main Shopping Center, home of FRANKS IMAX THEATERS, Bull and Bones Restaurant and Bar, an Italian, Mexican and also a Sushi Restaurant. There is also a Thai restaurant and French bakery as well as Kroger, an international grocery store and a health food store all within walking distance from the house.

Breakfast is included for reservations less than one week so please be sure to alert me to any allergies or likes/dislikes you have when booking. Due to planning, please let me know if you would like breakfast or I will assume you have other plans. Coffee and tea is always available.

Please feel free to contact me for pricing questions if that is confusing. Also, if you are a party of four or interested in a full house rental please see my other listing.

Guest access

You will have access to the living room that has Hulu and Netflix available on the T.V., and the kitchen with all its amenities. Just remember it is all shared with the owners.

Interaction with guests

We do like to welcome all of our guests and talk to you about visiting or living in the area if you ask. However, guests can also just keep to themselves and we won't bother you so it really is up to you. We can provide a lot or no interaction at all beyond showing you your room and the house.

Getting around

The South Main Bus passes right down my street heading towards the Virginia Tech campus. The far is 50 cents a ride and will take you downtown or to campus in 10 minutes. I have a schedule on the fridge and can explain it to all guests should you decide to use it.

There is also UBER in Blacksburg as well as other taxi services.

If you are flying into Roanoke, there is a bus called The Smart Way bus that goes from the airport to Blacksburg. The $4 fare is exact change only. The bus ends right where the bus to our house begins for 50 cents so easy transition. If you are using this service and have a lot of bags please let me know and I can try and pick you up from Smart Way bus stop. If you are arriving after bus hours at the airport there are taxis but they are quite expensive ($80). Please let me know and if available I can pick you up for $40 to try and save you some money.

We love traveling, running, volleyball, baking, gardening and playing with our non-human animal friends outside. Pretty laid back and quiet and love meeting people and hearing their stories.
