Excellent cottage in the heart of Cville! Walk downtown or to UVA from this creatively designed oasis! Cottage sits behind host's main house in a large yard: completely separate house on same lot: more room between the house and cottage than to most neighboring houses! The driveway is there for your use
Please read the 'space' description carefully for booking details and other notes/details. Thank you!

The space

NOTES: 2 night minimum 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).

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".
Parking provided in the driveway for your exclusive use during your stay.
Thank you for considering Acorn Cottage! We look forward to your visit.

Guest access

Full private access to the cottage and all features. Cottage sits behind the main host house about 25 feet behind the main home and is completely separate in the large yard.

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!

Other things to note

Private parking in the driveway. On-street parking available only in non permitted times (between 6pm and 8 am, and on weekends), so I leave guests full use of the driveway for their purposes during their stay.

Beautiful cottage that is amazingly private even though it's in the host's backyard. It is charming and comfortable and in a great location. Will definitely go back!

The Acorn Cottage was the PERFECT home away from home. It was super clean and had everything needed for a stay. The house was beautifully decorated and was like a secret little oasis right in the middle of Charlottesville. The host, Carla was so easy to communicate with and everything was exactly as pictured on the website. I will be looking forward to coming back again!

This space is so cute we didn't know what to do. The cuteness goes on. The cuteness abides. Maybe I'll move out of my house and into Carla's cabin, and eat at DOMA every day.

Carla was very easy to communicate with. The cottage is quaint, very private and in walking distance to everything you need!

The cottage is beautiful. The quiet and isolated back porch looking out on a wall of bamboo forest is the perfect place to drink a glass of wine, listen to crazy birds cheep crazily, and then admire the lightening bug extravaganza as darkness falls. Yet it's still a 10 minute max walk from several excellent restaurants and bars. Two of us stayed for a week while attending a seminar on the UVA campus. The walk to the Alderman Library was ~25 minutes and easy; the downtown pedestrian mall is about the same distance in the other direction; if you want public transport, a nearby free bus frequently runs between them. Having the kitchen available was great. The bed is comfortable. We didn't meet Carla in person, but she checked in several times via text to make sure we had everything we needed. The whole stay was excellent.

Homeowner in Charlottesville for over 20 years, I love this city and can offer guests suggestions as to hiking, dining, night spots, cultural events, etc. Love hosting guests in the cottage, and learning about what brings people to our little city!
