Belmont Bungalow Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, full Bath,sleeps 4(max)beautiful furnishings, AC, off street parking

THE BOXWOOD BUNGALOW is a perfectly restored 1935 bungalow on the BEST street in Belmont, one of the Charlottesville's more desirable neighborhoods. Appropriately named for the dozens of beautiful English Boxwoods that adorn the property, The Boxwood Bungalow is an ideal property for guests who want walking distance to downtown, UVA reunions/graduation weekends, top Belmont restaurants(Tavola, The Local, Lampo & MAS). An easy drive to the world renowned wineries: Keswick Vineyards, King Family, Barboursville, Pippin Hill, Jefferson Vineyard, Trump Winery to name just a few, as well as popular micro-breweries; Blue Mountain, Three Notched & Devils Backbone. This pristine Bungalow furnished with Irish & American antiques is a wonderful alternative to any local hotel with two nice sized bedrooms(one with extra long twins, other a Queen bed) one full bath with tiled tub/shower, comfortable living room and dining area equipped with microwave, coffee maker, fridge, utensils/glassware. Coffee, tea, cream, whole fruit, bottled water and snacks are all placed in the bungalow by the owner and are included in your nightly rate. Beds are fitted with luxurious linens, down comforters and pillows. Plenty of plush towels, shampoo, soaps, hair dryer iron & board make your stay 'spa like'. A large front porch offers a wonderful view of Carter's Mountain (a rarity), glorious sunrises, the perfect place to enjoy your morning coffee, glass of wine, or just relax and watch many native birds and enjoy the lush landscape. Personally maintained by the owner with 20 years in the hospitality business she ensures guest satisfaction and unsurpassed cleanliness. No pets, No parties and Non smokers only. The Charlottesville area is home to: Monticello(Jefferson's)Montpelier(Madison's) & Ashlawn-Highland(Monroe's). For casual dining in Belmont you also have The Belmont BBQ and La Taza Coffee House & Tiki Bar(in season). For guests who want to explore the city by foot, this bungalow is an easy 10 minute walk to the historic 7-block pedestrian mall, and the bungalow has one off street parking spot. I also manage a brand new one bedroom cottage next door so I could accommodate parties of 6 between the two properties. The pedestrian mall is home to The Paramount Theatre, Live Arts, Galleries, restaurants, street vendors, craftsman, farmers market, Ampitheatre, movie cinema, restaurants and bars to name just a few of the many reasons to stay within walking distance to downtown when visiting Charlottesville. UVA and the JPJ (John Paul Jones Arena) are approximately 2 miles from this property. Thomas Jefferson's Monticello, Jefferson winery and a 2 mile hiking trail are an easy 10 minute drive. Many of Virginia's world renowned wineries are all an easy 20-30 minute drive from this property. This bungalow offers a lot more space and privacy then area hotels. The nightly rate of $250 is based on double occupancy, $295 per night for 3-4 guests maximum. These rates do not include the VRBO surcharge. If the dates you are interested in are booked on the calendar, please inquire as I take a wait list and I manage two other similar properties.You wont find a nicer property for your stay in Charlottesville. A 50% non refundable deposit is required to reserve.

Why Janice Kavanagh chose Charlottesville

Charlottesville is a wonderful city which I call home and the Bungalow is ideally located, and easy walk to the city's downtown,shops,restaurants and farmer's market. I love the Belmont neighborhood with many beautiful homes and walk-able to just about everywhere in the city, UVA is approximately 2 miles away.

What makes this bungalow unique

On a quiet residential street, but only minutes by foot to just about everything in the city: restaurants, theatre, shops, trails,historic monuments, UVA and sporting arenas are close by. Monticello Trail that leads you to Monticello is just a five minute drive. Carter's Mountain which is adjacent to Monticello is clearly visible from the front porch of the Bungalow which offers lovely sunrises. You get the best of both worlds, close to the city so you dont even need a car, but you have the benefit of staying on quiet residential street without all the traffic and noise from the Belmont restaurants and shops that are just minutes away. Large front porch elevated off the street is ideal for relaxing, watching the sunrise and enjoying our coffee!

the owner was so accommodating and the bungalow is adorable! even nicer in person than in photos with fresh flowers everywhere and several sweet touches of southern hospitality. perfect place to stay with my two boys for a wedding weekend in C'ville without having to bunk up in a hotel room!

My husband and I spent 2 nights in Charlottesville and were lucky enough to stay at this perfect little bungalow. It met all of our needs: exceptionally clean, located in a nice neighborhood within walking distance of downtown, comfortable, decorated beautifully and stocked with everything a guest could need. Janice really did think of everything. I spend hours searching for the "perfect" place to stay when we travel, and I certainly found it in Charlottesville. Aside from how nice the house is, the location is ideal because there are several restaurants just a block away. The real find for us was the restaurant Lampo, which is actually on your way to downtown just before you get onto the bridge. We will recommend this house to anyone we know who is traveling to Charlottesville.

Stay in Charlottesville

  • 5 of 5

We had a terrific stay. The bungalow was comfortable and in a convenient location. The owner was terrific.

The only criticism I would have is that the mattress in the master bedroom is very hard.

  • 5 of 5

The Boxwood Bungalow is a beautifully decorated and immaculate cottage attached to a separate main house in the back. We considered staying at the Omni and are glad we didn't! The cottage is in a great location and has all the extra touches- quaint front porch, antique furniture, fresh flowers (so nice we thought they were fake for much of our stay), plush towels and linens, and beautiful landscaping. It was so clean and well maintained there isn't even a scuff mark anywhere. The fruit, breakfast bars, coffee, OJ, and creamer were very convenient and a plus. We tried two of the restaurants down the street, within easy walking distance- excellent! We would definitely stay here again!
