Photos and Description of the Belmont vacation bungalow rental

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath Completely Renovated Home. Sleeps Up To Six.

Located at the apex of hinton avenue in the vibrant neighborhood of belmont, highground is the perfect landing place from which to take in all that charlottesville has to offer. Highground has been thoughtfully renovated in 2014 offering 2 spacious bedrooms; a comfortable living room with 51' plasma television, soundbar, and available sleeper sofa; tranquil bathroom with great storage and rain shower; fully appointed, brand new kitchen with quartz counters, stainless appliances including gas range, and great light; and a generous dining room for those nights when you want to dine in. Highground sits high on the hill on one of belmont's most sought after streets and is within sight of some of charlottesville's most popular local restaurants, including mas tapas, tavola, and the local, among others. We are also just a short walk to the famous downtown pedestrian mall with wonderful local boutiques; live music at the jefferson theater or ntelos pavilion; theater, comedy, or opera at the paramount theater and live arts; regal movie cinemas, delicious dining options, gelato, and the charlottesville visitor center. Many of charlottesville's most popular attractions (think monticello/ashlawn) are no more than 5 miles away. The wine culture here has gained national acclaim and tasting rooms at local wineries such as veritas, barboursville, pollack, white hall, keswick, jefferson, glass house along with the burgeoning brewery tours of places like blue mountain, three notched, devils backbone, champion, and wild wolf are within a 10-30 minutes drive and make for memorable day-trips. If you are an outdoor enthusiast, the blue ridge mountains are right down the road as well and are easily visited to take in the stunning vistas.

Highground offers off-street parking for 2 cars and a level, fenced yard for backyard entertaining. A charcoal grill is available upon request. Air conditioning and wireless internet are included in your nightly rate as are local coffee, bottled water, and light refreshments. No pets, no smoking.

If you are travelling with children, we have many accessories available such as a highchair, pack and play, toys, books, etc. Feel free to leave yours at home and let us know what may make your visit more comfortable. A hair dryer, iron/ironing board, basic toiletries, and plenty of towels are all available for your stay. While several small, local markets are close by for basic kitchen essentials, we are happy to supply some basic grocery needs if desired for a small fee.

Highground is the perfect alternative to staying at a local hotel. Allow yourself to spread out a bit and enjoy a cozy living room and a freshly brewed cup of coffee on your schedule or relax with a magazine on the front porch. We pride ourselves on having an impeccably clean environment, with top of the line beds and linens--everything you would need to feel at home. Whether you are in charlottesville to sight see, visit friends, attend a wedding or event, or pursue a job opportunity, you will enjoy your stay at highground.
