Weekend get-away. The house is our second home. The space available is the basement area which includes a livingroom, bedroom (with a double bed and twin), & bathroom. The private entrance is at the back of the house with a keyless entry. There is a patio at the entrance. The house is on a quiet street with a wooded backyard. There is a kitchenette area in the livingroom which includes a mini fridge, microwave, coffee maker & toaster. There is fire a place, but not able to burn wood.
We recently purchased the home and use the main floor as our private weekend get-away. It is in a nice and quiet neighborhood and is within the city limits of Martinsville. We do have internet, but do not have cable. There is a color TV and many VHS movies to watch and enjoy during your stay. The house is close to shopping, restaurants and Uptown. We are not far from the Martinsville Speedway.
Inside the home, guests have access to the living room, bedroom and bathroom. Outside the home, guests have access to the patio and the backyard.

Our interaction with guests will be limited. We may see guests when we are in the backyard or relaxing on our deck above the patio. We do not live in Martinsville, we just come to this house on the weekends.

Chris & Robyn have been married for 30+ years. We have two sons and a daughter-in-law which served in the military. Our daughter passed away when she was 20 years old. We both work full time jobs. Our primary residence is a hospitality house primarily for military who have come to Liberty University for their Intensive courses. We bought the Weekend Get-Away just as it says, to have a weekend get-away and to have the ability to also provide a space for guests who come to visit Martinsville and what the Martinsville area has to offer for fun, relaxation and entertainment.
