About this listing
Excellent cottage in the heart of Cville! Walk downtown or to UVA from this creatively designed oasis! Still available for UVA graduation 2016! Reservation blocks for graduation are 2 night min (block1= fri&sat block2=sun&mon)
Lovely cottage in the center of town! Bamboo floors, multiple decks, vaulted ceiling. 2 stories: loft-style. Enjoy the privacy of your own space in the exact center of Charlottesville: WALK to both UVA and the Downtown mall. Only one block to the train station, 2 blocks to the vibrant shops and restaurants of West Main Street...a few more blocks to the downtown mall! Though in the center, guests always remark about how quiet it is in the space/cottage: Large yard with privacy fence. Kitchen provides the option of in-home dining, and your privacy far exceeds that of any local hotel! Acorn cottage is the perfect place to make your "home away from home".
NOTE A: 2 day reservation requirement applies (unless only 1 day is available on the calendar, making one night possible).
NOTE B: Check in is 3pm or after and check out is 11am or before.
NOTE C: No pets/no exceptions (love them too, but too many guests have allergies to allow animals in the space).
NOTE D: IF you have any special requests/needs/expectations: please let us know PRIOR to booking
Thank you for considering Acorn Cottage! We look forward to your visit.
Full private access to the cottage and all features.
Interaction with Guests
Depends on needs: can be available for local suggestions; completely separate residence for the guests, so if little to no interaction (after check-in) is the interest of the guest, that is completely doable!
***See note below for a special caveat for some potential guests!***
This is the best neighborhood in town for central location! Close to everything, and full of early 1900's architectural charm/varied architecture. I have been a resident (and am currently) of the neighborhood for over 20 years, so can answer any specific questions of guests prior to booking, if desired. I live right here and enjoy the same proximity to all things 'Charlottesville' that I hope guests can also enjoy.
***Note re neighborhood: as with any center of a city, there exists a mix of folks here, similar to many cities with an increased level of interest in 'density' and people living closer to the center. SO: while no one has ever had an actual safety PROBLEM occur, some have expressed in their reviews and ratings that they didn't feel safe walking at night. When pressed, usually they admit that it was just that they saw some people a different color than them, or other perceived sense of concern. SO: I note this as I LOVE this neighborhood and respect all of my neighbors...even I don't walk alone at night downtown in the center of this or most any city, if I feel concerned. PLEASE do not book here if you will be scared to walk by people of a different (or the same) race as you! And: please take all normal precautions for walking at night if you have any concerns at all: that just makes good sense!******
LESS THAN 1 BLOCK to the Amtrak; walk to the downtown area and UVA hospital/main campus. No need for a car if you take the train to Cville.
Other Things to Note
Private parking in the driveway. On-street parking available on nights and weekends (being close to the center of the city this is a highly desirable parking area so on street parking is permit only). I leave guests full use of the driveway for their purposes.
*No Smoking!* Even on (URL HIDDEN) manages to make its way inside...thanks for your honesty and care in this.
No other guests than those approved in the booking (ie: no private parties or events approved).
Back of the cottage: the shape of the yard allows ultimate privacy and largest windows facing the yard: double decking brings the outdoors in!
