Located on the southwest side of Charlottesville, just 7 minutes to Scott Stadium, UVA, and restaurants, 12 minutes to the downtown mall; 10 minutes to Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello. Short distances to many local wineries and breweries. You are in nature but close to downtown and restaurants. With a queen size bed, and sleeping cot available if necessary.

We're not sure the year the building was built, but we do know original owner once had gatherings here. There must have been many great evenings singing songs around the player piano, which they left behind.



In 2006 the original owners sold the house; what would become the Honey House was used as a storage shed until we moved in in 2013. We started renovations in 2015 and finished the project in the winter of 2018.



It is no longer a shed; we feel we've created a unique experience with the Honey House. This newly renovated Scandinavian-inspired interior has all the modern amenities: shower and bathroom (bath essentials,hair dryer,iron), a fully functional kitchen (refrigerator, microwave, stove, dishwasher, coffee, tea). A large sofa, Smart TV, Satellite TV, Showtime, and a dining area, a reading corner, mini-split for air/heat, 2 Ceiling fans and 5 sky lights. A sunny deck on the front and a sliding door leading to a shady deck off the back. The house is under a row of tall cedar trees and about 100 ft in the garden area behind main house on a land of 4 acres. If you like to keep your exercise routine such as yoga, walking or running while traveling this is a good place for you.



The Honey House is located in a quiet residential neighborhood called Sherwood Farms on the Southwest corner of Charlottesville, just beyond the UVA campus. The oldest buildings in the neighborhood were built in the late 1950s. Our street, Overlook Drive is a mile-long loop with about 30 homes, each having 2-4 acres. The unique location makes it easy access to many sightseeing locations including downtown, UVA, Monticello and major wineries and breweries. According to Google Maps, Scott Stadium and downtown mall are 6 and 12 minutes away respectively. It has easy access to I-64, Route 29 and 250, but is tucking into the woods, out of sight and earshot of all roadways; and you can generally come and go without traffic delays.



Interaction with guests:

We are happy to provide information and directions to local interests if needed. You may see us sometimes in the vegetable garden or the small apiary with bees all the way back. You may also encounter a few bunnies and birds as well as butterflies. You are welcome to herbs from the garden for cooking.

    Honey House 7/12 2019

    This was an amazing stay for us. The house was modern yet warm and inviting. We loved sitting on the porch in the morning and watching the bunnies. We felt like we were far awake from the center of Charlottesville, but in reality we were only 5 minutes away. We Can't wait to come back to the Honey House.

    Such a beautiful place to stay!

    This was the best vacation I have ever had. The Honey House had everything we needed and then some. It was so homey and comfortable. The owners are the nicest people we met on our trip. I hope to get back to visit again someday.

    Beautiful cottage in a great location!

    Loved the cottage - very clean and had everything I could possibly need for a week's stay. Took less than 10 minutes to get to UVA, yet the cottage is located in a private and lovely setting. Owners went out of their way to be welcoming. Will definitely stay again!

    Weekend getaway

    We had a very pleasurable stay at the honey house! Very nice and quite atmosphere, perfect for studying and relaxing, with proximity to the heart of downtown and within a short distance drive from many wineries. All amenities are nicely provided, with a full set of laundry, kitchenware, and even coffee beans ready to be ground. Owners are easily reachable, and even allowed us to check out later on Sunday to enjoy the extra time in peace and tranquility.
