The 'Treehouse' is a small, charming, rustic, 2 story house on stilts. There are air conditioning window units, for the summer, and a woodstove and space heaters for the winter. Firewood provided. Each floor is 12 ft x 12 ft. Downstairs there is a queen sized futon bed, a woodstove, and a small kitchen (with refridgerator, toaster oven, and hotplate, and basic kitchen supplies including spices, tea and coffee), and a table. The upstairs is accessible by a steep staircase. It has a queen-sized bed, a dresser and a desk.
There is a wrap-around porch with a couch and a great view of the creek, and the surrounding greenery. The bathroom is located in an enclosed room on the porch (toilet and sink.) The hot, private outdoor shower is adjacent on the porch. Unusual! And yes, we do have guests in the winter! There is a heater in the bathroom adjacent, so you can go from the hot shower straight into the warm bathroom, while enjoying the fresh outdoor air!
We are located 1 mile from the downtown mall in Charlottesville, and across the street from a lovely riverside trail. A creek, black walnut tree with a swing, vegetable garden and 3 free-range chickens are in the large yard. (Sweet chickens sleep under the Treehouse in their coop.)
Thomas Jefferson's Monticello is 10 minutes away, and many fabulous restaurants are in walking distance (10 minute walk.) Access to the lovely Riverside Trail is just across the street. Great place to walk dogs, bike and stroll.
Small 'Big Green Egg' grill on porch, on bus line, WiFi.

Charlottesville is a wonderful place to live
Peaceful, green setting that feels like the country, but is 1 mile from downtown. Nice to watch the wildlife in the small, adjacent creek. On Wednesdays in the summer and fall the farmers market is set up 2 blocks away with fresh produce and handmade products. Wine country is around the corner, with lovely vineyards. The Blue Ridge Mountains and its scenic hiking trails surround us. Last but not least, Monticello, Thomas Jefferson's home is 15 minutes away - an endlessly fascinating and beautiful place to visit..

I am a HomeAway/VRBO property owner in another state and I have a house in Charlottesville, which is rented, so I can't stay there while in town.
I have stayed at this property twice - 2013 and 2015. First was fun, an adventure. There were issues with a leaky sink faucet and circa 1980's polyester bed linens. The second-time, *nothing* had changed. The owner is making hand-over-fist income from this tree-house and putting nothing into basic upgrades. Oh, and I learned my lesson to bring my own firewood.
This is a cheap, tacky gimmick of an vacation rental.
I understand a tree-house rental experience should be fun and rustic. But smaltzy bed linens and nearly non-working sink faucet reminded me of the axiom: BUYER BEWARE.
We loved our stay in the Treehouse! It was cozy, well-equipped, and just what we were looking for in a weekend place in Charlottesville. We had easy access to everything we wanted to do in town. We were there during a heat spell but the window a/c units kept us quite cool. I absolutely adored the outdoor shower - such a pleasant experience! Would definitely stay there again!
This is not the Embassy Suites. As long as you aren't expecting that, and don't mind the liberating experience of showering outside, this is a great place. Don't plan on watching TV (there isn't one), but the WiFi is ample to stream some Netflix. The porch is great, and the wood stove is perfect for a cold C-Ville night. We did have one problem...black ants. Anytime we were eating, the ants were there. Also, if you have small children, the ladder to the loft might make you nervous. All said, I would definitely stay here again. Leora is a great hostess.
The house was peaceful and comfortable---in walking distance from old town, but also far enough to feel rural. There's a nice paved path nearby for running and walking. My favorite part of the property is the awesome porch. I have to admit, I spent most of my time on the porch reading, relaxing, and drinking wine. I slept wonderfully and am thankful for the a/c unit! The radio also was a nice touch. The outdoor shower is quaint and I really liked having the sheet dividers outside for additional privacy. I would recommend this property and also come back with friends!
We had a good stay here. The treehouse was rustic, cozy and peaceful.
Thomas Jefferson's Monticello is 10 minutes away. Wintergreen Ski Resort is a 40 minute drive, downtown Charlottesville is 1 mile away. ACAC gym and fitness center is closeby. Charlottesville and its surroundings offer most of the above activities and attractions
