Charlottesville House Rental Photos and Description

5 bedrooms, 4 full bathrooms, 1 half bathroom, sleeps 10

Located on Old Garth Rd. just beyond the back entrance to Farmington Country Club, this house is convenient to both UVA and Barracks Road Center, and is only 32 mi. from skiing at Wintergreen. Positioned high above the road amongst tall trees on a three acre lot, the house lends a sense of privacy. In the back, a flagstone terrace surrounded by natural flora and huge azaleas provides a great place to enjoy Charlottesville's awesome weather. Inside, feel right at home in the beautiful kitchen and great room. The upstairs contains three bedrooms and three baths, while across a short breezeway along one side of the patio are two more bedrooms and a bath. This house is great for one large family, two families, or even a group of friends in town for a reunion.

Comfortable and roomy home in a great location in Charlottesville

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 9, including 2 toddlers, had a delightful stay over Thanksgiving. The location of the home is and needed shopping is close by but so is Monticello and the fabulous walking trails there. We enjoy cooking together and while the kitchen is not large the adjacent laundry area had additional counter space which acted as our overflow pantry and the kitchen was very well equipped for meal prep. The rooms are large and sunny and each bedroom has its own bath. We had a wonderful stay!

Very pleased

  • 5 of 5

We were very comfortable in this lovely home, everything was in good working order, and owner was available by phone to aid with check in and answer questions. Set-up was ideal for our large family and the grandparents, who were delighted to have a wing to themselves. Altogether 7 people and we could have fit more! The area was quiet, green, and pleasant.

Wedding weekend home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Old Garth is a wonderful home, beautifully maintained and decorated and perfect for hosting a family for a wedding weekend, great floor plan. The extra first floor wing with two bedrooms ( a king bed plus a room with a trundle bed ) was an added bonus that helped us accommodate everyone. We had a destination wedding in Charlottesville and needed a home that could accommodate our family and allow us to entertain extended family and friends for small functions prior and post wedding day. This house was perfectly situated, away from the busy bustle of the campus but close enough that it was easy to get to downtown and the Boars Head. Most guests stayed at the Boars Head, a stones throw away. The owner was very responsive to inquiries and making sure we had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable, and it was. Would love another excuse to head back to this home away from home, I highly recommend it.

Great place to call home for the wedding!

  • 5 of 5

This home met our every need. Our daughter picked Charlottesville for her wedding, and this place offered us a home for the week to do planning and last minute preparations, as well as space for the wedding party and groom's family to stay. It fit the bill with bedrooms and BATHROOMS! It was spacious enough to entertain guests coming into town, and the morning of the wedding the women were able to get their hair and make up done in one room while photos started in another room. Would highly recommend this to anyone who needs the space for family gatherings.

Beautiful home in convenient location

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I came into town for a reunion weekend. We stayed at this house and it certainly lives up to its description! The house is beautiful and well-suited for catching up with friends. It's also incredibly convenient to all the places you want to go during a reunion weekend. We couldn't have been happier with the house. Highly recommend it and will definitely try to stay here for the next reunion!

Amazing! Awesome! Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house for our daughters wedding held on the grounds of UVA. The house was a perfect setting for our extended family and friends to stay and gather. It as CLOSE but far!! The house had every amenity we needed.

Our only recommendation would be is to bring a portable cooler for drinks etc. we FILLED the refrigerator to its brink with food and snacks plus wine and beer. We used the cooler for water and soft drinks.
