Uniquely situated on a hilltop overlooking one of Charlottesville's oldest and most characterful neighborhoods, the Woolen Mills Retreat invites visitors to revel in the best of modern Charlottesville living. This striking contemporary home is conveniently located only a short distance from both the cultural hub of the Downtown Mall and tranquil nature trails along the Rivanna River. In addition to thoughtful integration of its indoor and outdoor spaces, the complex has been designed with luxury and elegant simplicity in mind.

Visitors enter the grounds from a private gate, arriving to have their first full glimpse of the home, its open courtyard/deck, and the stunning 75 foot long saltwater pool. Perfect both for entertaining and exclusive retreats, you will love imagining how best to inhabit this beautiful space during your stay. Inside, an open chef's kitchen flows outward to a light-filled dining area and onwards to a deep living room, featuring gorgeous walnut woodwork. Also on the main floor is a bright bedroom with two twin beds and a full bathroom. Up the stairs, you will find two more bedrooms, one with a king-sized bed and another with a queen; from the latter, you may step out onto a broad terrace with expansive views in all directions. Be sure to enjoy an evening soaking in the massive concrete tub in the home's master bathroom.

Set on a hill, yet having a very private feel, your stay at the Woolen Mills Retreat will delight and inspire.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We loved our stay in the house. The beds were VERY comfortable and it was nice to have the big sectional couch to watch TV as a family at the end of the day. We felt the proximity to activities were wonderful. We were so happy you were able to adjust things to make it work to get us into that house - your customer service and responsiveness is to HIGHLY commended. Thanks again for getting us into the LEX house.

super cool modern home

  • 5 of 5

ever since my daughter moved to Charlottesville two years ago, this home had been on my radar screen as a place to rent during one of our visits. i recently had the opportunity to finally stay here (during previous attempts, it was already booked) and i was not disappointed. it is a super cool modern home with many thoughtful details incorporated into its design. large windows fill the house with ample natural light. distant mountain views can be had from the 2nd floor bedrooms and very large deck - accessible via one of the bedrooms. the large cement soaking tub in the master bath is a pure treat, albeit challenging when trying to "shower" in it. no worries, there is a glorious shower in the downstairs bath so you are covered. it should be noted, this is a modern, but not "new" house. it is beginning to show signs of aging, but is doing so gracefully. this is clearly a home that is lived in, not purely a rental property. the furnishings, bedding, and personal artwork featured throughout the house speak of an owner with a creative eye.

my only regret is that the pool was closed during our stay (early october) which was not surprising. i will have to rent this place again in season next time.

the woolen mills neighborhood has an eclectic mix of homes - many modest dwellings with other cool modern structures sprinkled in. it is fun to walk around and see the varying styles side by side. there is a nice park just down the street with a trail that runs along the river - great for running. it is very easy to get to downtown from here. beyond the occasional train running directly behind the property (which i found mesmerizing to be honest), the area is very quiet and certainly felt safe.

Stay Charlottesville, who manages this property, kept the place more than well stocked with plenty of towels & toiletries in the bathrooms. the kitchen was highly functional with everything you would need. the house was clean upon arrival (the only detail overlooked were old coffee grinds left in the coffee maker).

thank you (owner) for sharing your groovy digs with us and thank you Stay Charlottesville for your level of service in maintaining this property. as long as our daughter lives in C-ville, we will return, hopefully for another stay in this fine home.

Beautiful property, poorly managed

  • 2 of 5

This house and property is undeniably beautiful and comfortable, however, the management leave much to be desired. Perhaps our experience was an outlier, but it really added a layer of confusion, stress, and frankly embarrassment to what was a straightforward reservation. See below for details.

Before arrival: We requested and were confirmed for an early check in. I then received several requests and cancellations of those requests for the additional cost for early check in time. Only after following up for clarification on what was happening did someone respond that the early check in was no longer possible, the day before arrival. It ended up working out, but created significant stress.

On arrival: The house was not very clean. There were ants everywhere, the recycling hadn't been taken out, there was general grime, and all the outside pillows had been left in the rain. The next day, the owner arrived unannounced at 10am to collect personal items from the house. Having someone show up at the front door without notice was off-putting.

On departure: The day before check out, I requested a late check out, acknowledging the late request. It was confirmed we could check out late, I was charged and paid for the late check out of 2pm. At 10am a group showed up who were under the impression they had the house at 11am. We called Homeaway who were unaware of 1) where the property was (which was extremely confusing) and 2) didn't seem aware of the other reservation. We felt extremely pressured to leave asap as the group just sat outside waiting for us to hurry out.

Overall we were left feeling confused and rushed instead of relaxed.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the feedback, Hannah. We do apologize for the confusion with the early checkin and late checkout. We are sorry to hear that you had stress over your vacation because of that. Also, thank you for letting us know about the ants and the recycling, as well as the disturbances you had. We strive to better the guest experience and take all feedback very seriously. Thank you again. We hope to provide a better experience for you next time you're in Charlottesville.

Wonderful Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

This is a modern stylish home with all the comforts! It has a very well appointed kitchen, comfortable beds with nice linens, a beautiful pool and wonderful rooftop patio. The location is maybe not as desirable and the neighborhood concerned me at first, but it was quiet and we did not have any issues. There is a train that runs right behind the house, but the noise did not bother us at all. Even though it was a short weekend and we did not spend much time at the house, we very much enjoyed it and found it to be very comfortable. Would recommend and rent from again.
