About Peter & Traci

Originally from Northern Virginia, Peter and Traci have lived in Lynchburg since 2008. We are actively involved in our church where Peter is on staff. Traci enjoys singing and helping with the children's program. Peter also teaches guitar and other music classes at a local homeschool co-op. Traci is a former Liberty University student and has spent the last decade and a half working with nonprofits helping them to fundraise more effectively.

Peter & Traci purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Peter & Traci chose Lynchburg

This rental property is situated in a friendly subdivision where people still wave at each other when they come and go from the neighborhood. The neighborhood is known for its fantastic annual yard sale and Halloween trick-or-treating. All of which make it the quintessential all American neighborhood.

What makes this apartment unique

This rental property has its own private entrance into the living area. Unlike other properties and hotels, with no additional effort you can enjoy a scenic view of Lynchburg on your way to Liberty University. It's a great way to enjoy the city.

Peaceful cozy home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This place was more than we expected. They have recently done some updates which were a nice surprise. My husband and son spent the days while I was in class and they said it was so peaceful and barely knew we were in a basement.

Thanks so much for opening your home to us. We will possibly be back in the summer when I have more classes on campus.

A beautiful, clean, cozy basement apartment with the softest bed!

  • 4 of 5

The basement apartment looks like the pictures in that is spacious yet, cozy and clean. I really liked how Peter and Traci respect privacy and boundaries. When I had a minor issue, I called Peter, and he handled it the same day. I appreciated his sense of urgency with the matter. I would recommend this apartment to students and visiting parents because it's 10 minutes from campus.

I would definitely stay again!

Thanks again Peter and Traci!!

Owner's Response: The minor issue was the tub drain was draining slow and it was fixed within the hour I was notified that it was an issue. It was fixed the first day and was no longer an issue the rest of the week.

Hospitality Overflows Here

  • 5 of 5

The owners went out of their way to be sure we had everything we expected we'd need for our stay and then some. The place was neat and clean!! We wanted to spend lots of time at Liberty University and the location here was perfect for that! Thanks for a wonderful stay at a very reasonable cost. Bless you, your family and your beautiful home.

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

Great apartment that was very close to Liberty. It was clean and the owners were always available if I needed anything. I slept well and it was a very quiet place for when I was studying. The owners also offered extras such as coffee and water. Would stay there again.

The studio basement is in a very nice neighborhood and close to town for visiting our daughter at Liberty University. It is a nice size and much bigger than you would get in a hotel room. There was a few draw backs I must address. I have rented vacation rental homes for many years all over the world, so I take reviews very seriously to be able to determine if this is a place I want to stay. We know when staying in hotels they must abide by certain regulations. With these vacation rentals we have only the reviews to go by. Many times people don't leave a review because they don't want to leave a negative. The queen mattress that was the only bed in the studio was not comfortable at all. It sqeeked every time you moved. There was an air mattress that another person slept on in the living area and our sqeeky bed even kept her up all night. By the third night we laid the comforter on the floor and slept. I also didn't feel that is was good communication between me and the landlord. I had called the night before and left a message for them to call me back and they never did. During our three night stay we never saw them for them to follow up with any questions. They live in the house and this was the basement so it was not an inconvience to come see how things were going. They also state they have water in frig and coffee and items to go. Just a note so you are aware we had three people and there were only two bottles of water and two coffee cups. This is not a problem but it would have been nice to have a heads up to purchase these items before I arrived instead of making a trip to town to purchase items.

Owner's Response: Thank you for bringing the issue of the squeaky full sized bed to our attention. We figured out the box spring is going bad and we are repairing it right away. Additionally we are making plans in the next week to upgrade it to a queen sized memory foam mattress so this will no longer be any sort of issue. Please note as well that we have found most people that stay with us prefer their privacy and we don't go out of our way to introduce ourselves so as to respect their privacy. In our welcome packet we provide both my wife's and my cell phone number if something isn't to your liking so please understand you are able to reach out to us with concerns. While we provide both, my wife was on a business trip for your visit and if you contacted me I would have gladly responded right away. You asked if you could have your daughter's roommates parent stay with you to split costs and we obliged and while we are glad you enjoyed the popcorn, the coffees, tea, water, oatmeal and shampoo and soap we provided complimentary we would have been willing to provide more if you were to ask. Please note also that we are only 5 minutes away from a grocery store to purchase anything extra as well so it shouldn't be to far away to get other essentials that may be needed. We never want to miss the mark on providing the best stay possible and we realize we missed it here. For those of you that allow us to host you please give us an opportunity during your stay to make things right and we will not disappoint. We want to feel you are getting value for your stay.
