About this listing
Excellent cottage in the heart of Cville! Walk downtown or to UVA from this creatively designed oasis!
*All interior photos new as of March 2014* Bedroom/top floor of cottage: light filled, open vaulted ceiling with exposed beams.
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!
This is the best neighborhood in town for central location! Great neighbors, close to everything, and full of early 1900's architectural charm/varied architecture.
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 available (just notify one day before arrival that you would like off-street parking). On-street parking not a problem/readily available as well.
*No Smoking!* Even on decks...it 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!
The check in was just perfect. No stress at all. The area was fine with almost no noise and good privacy in the cottage. I would highly recommend this cottage it was just about perfect.
Great location! We parked the car and walked the whole weekend. Carla's place was just as described. I loved all the attention to detail. It really felt like a home. I would gladly rent again on my next trip to C-Ville!
Carla's cottage was fantastic. It is a very quiet and charming space in a great part of town. Highly recommended!
Had a great stay at Acorn Cottage. Very appealing architectural features. Roomy, comfortable with private outdoor spaces. Convenient neighborhood. Carla made check-in smooth and seamless. Highly recommend.
Awesome cottage, inside & out, in good location! Great host. Would stay here again.
Excellent! A very sweet home away from home. Incredibly gracious hostess. Feeling very lucky to have landed in this space.
My best AirBnB experience to date! A charming property within easy walking distance of shops, markets, and restaurants on Main Street and the Downtown Mall. The well equipped kitchen was great for dining in. Carla is an excellent host who went above and beyond to ensure my companion and I were comfortable. I would happily stay here again on my next visit to Charlottesville.
