The 'Treehouse' is a small, charming, rustic, 2 story house on stilts. Air conditioning. Woodstove in winter: Firewood provided. Each floor is 12 ft x 12 ft. Downstairs there is a queen sized futon bed, 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.
Downstairs is cozy with the wood stove and a window A/C unit which cools the place down quickly in summer. The upstairs does not cool down as well due to the vaulted ceiling, but there is a ceiling fan and there are windows on all four walls to allow cross ventilation.
There is a wrap-around porch with a couch and a great view of the creek, and the surrounding greenery. The half 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!
We are located 1 mile from the downtown mall in Charlottesville, which is full of delicious restaurants and entertainment. There are also several good restaurants a few blocks away. The Treehouse is across the street from a lovely riverside trail: great place to walk dogs, bike and stroll. By a creek with a black walnut tree with a swing, vegetable garden and we did have a free-range chicken in the large yard (but predators...). (We plan to get more chicks in the Spring to inhabit the coop under the Treehouse.)
This is an Eco-friendly house. We do not use harsh chemicals, so occassionally seasonal bugs may make their way into the treehouse (ladybugs, etc..)
Onesty Family Water park is 2 blocks away with a lazy river, slides, lap lanes at certain hours, and obstacle courses. ACAC gym is 1 mile away with excercise classes, warm water salt pools, jacuzzi, sauna and a rooftop deck.
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.

Would you like to participate in our "Treehouse for Charity" program? This is how it works: We will donate $50 from the money you have already paid for your reservation to a charity. You choose from one of the three charities listed in the Treehouse. The current charities are the SPCA (Society for the Protection of Cruelty to Animals), International Rescue Committee (supports refugees), or a local Urban Agriculture Collective, a non-profit that brings organic gardens to the community. We hope that you will participate in this program. It is of no extra cost to you, and we can work together to help out some of our less fortunate creatures on this earth. The charity folder is in the Treehouse.
