About this listing
Our clean and cozy near 100-year old dutch colonial house sits on Forest Hill Park (enjoy hiking trails, farmer's market, outdoor movies), and just a block from the famous James River. We are 2-3 Miles from Carytown, Downtown, Museums, and The Fan.
Our location is second-to-none, as the house literally sits on Forest Hill Park, famous for its hiking/biking trails, South of James Farmer's Market, and River Access. If you're here on a Saturday, you don't want to miss Richmond's best and biggest farmer's market...the South of the James. It's just a 5 minute walk on a woodsy trail from our porch. Farmer's market or not, we highly recommend exploring the trails and park right out the front door.
And don't forget about the mighty James River, simply follow Reedy Creek (just down a hill from the front porch) about two blocks and you'll be ready to take on the James. Enjoy kayaking, canoeing, sunbathing, swimming, or building a fire on the rocks. Also, it's dog friendly! There's also a great fishing spot on the river where you can catch catfish, bass, and other kinds of fish.
We are 2-3 miles (5-8 minutes) from most anything you'd want to see. (Downtown, Carytown, Museums, Fan, Breweries). Great roads for biking to all the popular destinations or you can walk, drive, or take pubic transit.
The private room features a full sized bed with a high-quality firm mattress. We use high thread count premium Egyptian cotton sheets and make sure you're stocked with all the pillows you need to ensure a great night sleep. Room also features original hardwood floors and windows with nice view of the park, new ceiling fan, antique armoire, clean towels, a closet to yourself, and a cool little clock.
The private guest bathroom is just down the stairs and has recently been renovated with tiled shower and new appliances. This bathroom is 100% private. Only you have access.
There's also access to a new queen air mattress with Egyptian Cotton sheets.
You have access to our entire home, including our cozy living room with fireplace, kitchen with gas cooking, dining room, and spacious fenced in backyard complete with mature crepe myrtles and massive pine trees.
We also have a nice medium sized dog named Andy; he will certainly warm your heart!

Our family (Shawn, Melissa, and James (infant)) live in Richmond, VA. We are pretty easy going and enjoy hosting folks, whether through Airbnb or friends around town. In case you were wondering, our baby James is great sleeper (no guarantees) and an all-around nice guy :) We enjoy cooking and most things food related, being outside and experiencing nature, and love us a good movie. We also love traveling and exploring the USA and abroad.
We love Richmond and Virginia and look forward to sharing its many wonders with you!
