Come visit the capital of Virginia and stay in a charming, turn of the century Row House. The house, built in 1900, is very comfortable with a warm atmosphere, tall ceilings, oversized windows, and original trim and hardwood floors. The dining room seats six to eight and the kitchen island seats four. The bedrooms are lovely and spacious with a total of two queen sized beds, a twin bed, and a youth trundle bed. The full bathroom is newly renovated from floor to ceiling. The house is located in an established neighborhood, made up of long-time residents and college students. It is within walking distance to the VCU Campus and the Seigel Center. It is also just minutes to downtown Richmond, Shockoe Bottom, Carytown, the Museum District, Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, Children's Museum, Maymont Park, Hollywood Cemetary, monuments, shopping, cafes, Starbucks, and restaurants.

I am a nurse, living and working in Northern Virginia and have raised 4 children and have 6 grandchildren. I have lived in Virginia all of my life. I became aquainted with Richmond when my daughter attended school there.
I bought the house so that my daughter, who was attending VCU, could stay there with other students rather than live in the dorm. She loved living there, and so have the other girls who shared the house. It was very roomy and comfortable for them, plus convenient (walking distance) with all of their classes nearby. After she graduated, I continued to rent to students for a few more years. I thought about selling after the last group of 3 students left, but I had become very attached to the house and have enjoyed visiting Richmond. So, after staying in a VRBO vacation rental myself, I decided to make the Richmond row house a beautiful and homey vacation rental. To begin, I had the interior of the home painted and the upstairs bathroom completely renovated. I also added new furnishings fit for a vacation rental. I hope to continue to use the house and enjoy Richmond with my family during times when it is not occupied.
The house is so comfortable and roomy and no more than 15 minutes away from Richmond's popular spots. I enjoy going to Carytown where there are great restaurants, and the historic and beautiful Byrd movie theater, where admission is $2 and an organist plays before the movie on Saturday nights. There are wonderful parks and I especially like Maymont Park, which is sprawling and complete with Nature Center, Gardens, Zoo and Mansion. I also love to admire the landscaping and the historic architecture in Richmond and like the Southern friendliness and hospitality.
The historic Landmark Theatre is .5 miles from the house.....check out it's show schedules! I have many travelers stay for historic touring.... Fredericksburg and Charlottesville are about an hour away. Richmond has many yearly Runs (Ukrop's Run included) where starting and finish lines are walking distance from the house. I tastefully decorate the house inside and out at Christmas time!
