Located in the wonderful Rivermont Historic District, our 1907 charmer is close to Randolph College, Downtown Lynchburg and 15 mins from Liberty University! Church St bridal is a stones throw away as well as great coffee shops and restaurants downtown.
Please read before booking --
Your apartment is on the first floor of our home. You have a large bedroom and connected sitting room which has a single bed that can be used for a second or third guest. I do have an air mattress available if you need space for 4 people, just message me and I'll set you up! There is a private bathroom, new paint, fixtures and mini fridge with microwave are located in the sitting room for your convenience. Free tea and coffee provided as well.
There is a large hanging bar in the smaller bedroom closet for hanging clothes and a small hook with hangers in the large bedroom on your door. The original 1907 built ins can not hold modern day hangers unfortunately so I made sure there was alternative hanging space provided.
We live on the second floor so I am always available if you need anything but you have the privacy of your own section of the house. We have a large front porch you are welcome to relax on as well.
You have your own mini split heat/AC which is extremely quiet with remote control to set as you please. The windows have yet to be restored so only the one in the grey/yellow single bedroom opens but I am restoring them all in the fall.
If you need accommodation for 2 people see my studio apartment out back the Cozy vintage cottage listing!
Feel free to check out the other rooms downstairs. There are large pocket doors and many fireplaces that will transport you back in time. We also use the butlers stairs to go in and out/ up and down so we rarely even use the main entry when guests are staying in the home.
Interaction with guests
I will always be available as much or as little as you like. Don't hesitate to call/text me for anything at any time if I'm not around upstairs. I am happy to give you the run down of the area, best places to eat, and advice on whatever you need!
Other things to note
Check in is 2pm and Check out is at 10am.
The house is historic and 110+ years old, there are some creaks and clangs from the steam radiators in winter now and then so don't call Ghostbusters if you hear some wacky sounds. It's OK, it's just this old house!! The windows are still painted shut except for the one in the room with the single bed. Sorry the glass is a bit dirty but I can't get into them to spruce them up! I'll be removing and restoring them in the fall.
Front door will lock behind you so bring your key when heading outside.
Parking directly out front on Rivermont is fine and there is side st parking always available as well.
You have your own heat/AC unit with remote. Just slide down bottom section and you can push mode button to change to heat (sun picture) and A/C (snowflake picture)
Please throw only toilet paper in the toilets (old house, old plumbing).
We just ask guests to be courteous and tidy up after themselves. When enjoying our outdoor spaces we just ask you keep your voices down after 10pm, we respect our neighbors. Smoking is OK outside, just please use the ashtray provided on porch. A couple of alcoholic drinks is fine but please no heavy drinking/drugs in the house. Turn off lights and fans when not in use and lock the door behind you. Thank you!!

I'm a renovation / repair lady! I work on historic homes all over the US. I moved to St Pete, Fl from Brooklyn, NY in 2015 to restore the bungalow in my previous Fl listings. I am currently in Va restoring a Historic 1907 Georgian Revival home in beautiful Lynchburg! When I'm not in the midst of home improvements, I bake, make paper party deco and do floral arrangements for the events I plan in my small business called Ai events and parties.
I have traveled to over 30 countries and lived in 3 of them. As a solo traveler I was usually limited to 6-10 bed hostel dorm rooms as hotels were far too hard on a single travelers budget. I'm here to offer exceptional accommodation on a reasonable budget and meet new and interesting people from around the world. Fun fact- me and my Airbnb listings were recently featured in a Tampa Bay Times article!
