Serpentine Studio is a beautiful and quiet two room studio apartment located in the historic Woolen Mills neighborhood. It is a part of our 1830's brick home and is located only one mile from downtown Charlottesville and two miles from the University of Virginia (both can easily accessed by the nearby city bus line).
As a part of our property we offer a private dock with a hammock and deck chair overlooking the Rivanna River, a perfect spot to relax and watch the wildlife. The river setting offers a unique, peaceful environment where one is able to step back from the business of life, while simultaneously remaining close to the center of town. Our house is located near the Rivanna River Trail which winds along the river for 12 miles and offers wonderful opportunities for biking, hiking, birdwatching, and the possibilities of canoeing and fishing.
The studio apartment has its own easily accessed entrance, and is beautifully renovated with heart pine floors and exposed brick walls. There is an adjacent breakfast room overlooking the river with a water cooker, coffee maker and small refrigerator. We will provide tea, coffee, and a basic breakfast for your convenience. Both rooms are decorated with original artwork. The owner's nearby sculpture studio offers an artistic setting with sculptures in progress as well as original artwork placed throughout the house and extensive backyard. The bathroom offers a shower and an antique clawfoot bath tub.

I am Swedish and my husband is from Los Angeles. We have lived in Charlottesville for the past 25 years and love it. I work as a sculptor and an art instructor but have always dreamt of running a bed and breakfast. Now that our daughter has moved out, the lower part of the house is empty and I am excited to share our great house and yard with other people.
We still travel extensively but when we are at home we are looking forward to meet our guests.
The Owner purchased this house in 1995
Our property is close to downtown and the University but is still situated in a country setting. Our back yard opens up to the Rivanna River where we have a dock and there are miles of walking trails along the river. It is a quiet romantic setting as you sit in a dock chair at dusk sometimes spotting the Bald Eagles that live down the river.
The character and ambiance of this house is priceless. It was built in the 1830's and we have brought out the beauty of the original building materials, exposed brick walls and beautiful heart pine floors. As and an artist there is a lot of art in my life and you will find and abundance of original art in the rental property and around the yard.
My daughter and I spent the weekend in Charlottesville and stayed at Serpentine Studio. The apartment
is beautifully renovated and very comfortable. Everything you need is there including coffee, tea, milk and cereal.
I enjoyed being close to the river. I enjoyed exploring Charlottesville while my daughter went to an interview.
We recommend Pippin Hill Vineyard and Carter Mountain Orchard visits which were recommended by locals. Driving out Hwy 250 toward the Blue Ridge Parkway was picturesque as well. Thank you for sharing your property with us.
What a charming and comfortable place! We were in awe of Ninni's beautiful art and the neat touches throughout including original hardwood floors, furniture with character, a comfy queen bed, a small but functional kitchen space, and a cute bathroom. A small fridge was stocked with milk, juice, and yogurt. Cereal and fruit, coffee and tea rounded out our breakfast. Beautiful grounds on the Rivanna River. We loved it and hope to return soon.
We had a great stay in Ninni's comfortable little studio on the Rivanna River in Charlottesville. It is comfortable, cozy, and filled with beautiful art, and just out the windows you can see the river! There are many historical places to visit close by, wineries, and Charlottesville is very interesting itself with many wonderful restaurants.
My husband and I had a great time in the area and we especially enjoyed our stay at Serpentine Studios. Nini was a very gracious host and we even enjoyed some of our freshly purchased wine with her on the dock by the River. Kurt and I like to explore new digs and places to go so may not make a repeat stay at Serpentine Studios, but we do recommend it highly and it will be a great place to use as a top notch comparison to our next stay somewhere.
This is a quaint little apartment (ground level basement of an old home). The two main rooms: 1. bedroom with rustic brick wall, comfortable queen bed, and leather sofa w/ coffee table. 2. breakfast room with small table, sink, microwave, lounge chair. Ninni left us strawberries, greek yogurt, OJ, tea/coffee, and cereal/milk -- a nice extra touch that made us feel welcomed. There is a good hangout/reading spot at the riverfront with 2 chairs and an old hammock. There is also a river trail that is an easy walk/jog/bike ride away. Downtown is convenient, and there are plenty of good restaurants nearby. It's an older place with some quirks but overall very peaceful and a worthwhile getaway.
You will be delighted by being surrounded by beautiful mosaic and tile work, sculptures and paintings. The apartment in in the Historic Woolen Mills area . The bed is extremely comfortable and the area is so quiet, you are sure to sleep well. If we need a place to stay on our next visit to Charlottesville, this will be at the top of our list. Probably not an appropriate choice for anyone with physical limitations.
Monticello is very close to our home a must-see any time of the year.
Step outside the door and there are miles and miles of walking trails, many along the Rivanna River.
Within 2 miles there are at least 25 restaurants, many of them great.
Visit the University of Virginia, designed by Thomas Jefferson, it has a beautiful campus
