Our Inn has 3 private rooms. Two rooms have a double bed each, the other has a double and single bed. Our Hostel has 6 beds in a co-ed bunk room (double and single beds available). Please see our website alexanderhouse.us for a detailed list of options and prices.
Kitchen facilities are available for storing and cooking food. Bread and fruit, tea and coffee are complimentary. Each building has one shared bathroom. Wifi is accessible throughout the property. Lockers are available for rent. Laundry facilities are not available for general use (there is a laundromat 1/2 mile away). Various games, reading materials, and information on local attractions (both in writing and from our hosts) are available. The work of local artists is featured throughout the buildings. Both buildings are smoke-free and pet-free.
The Inn features a full kitchen (minus the oven). The kitchen leads into a dining room with large windows that catch the sun most of the day. The living room boasts several comfortable couches and chairs. A public computer with internet is available for use.
The hostel has a compact mini-kitchen in the foyer of the bunk room. The bunk room is spacious with plenty of room for luggage and to hang out. People staying in the hostel are also welcome to use the facilities in the Inn (as long as there is not a whole-house reservation).
We have two beautifully restored and remodeled buildings in the charming Belmont neighborhood of Charlottesville, VA. It is clean, cozy, and relaxed. We host a wide range of people, everyone from elderly couples to bicycle tourists, concert goers to wedding participants, young backpackers to weekend tourists. We've also hosted guests from dozens of countries from every continent.
Alexander House is a 5 minute walk from several restaurants and cafes, as well as a small grocery, laundromat and a doughnut shop. Another 5 to 10 minutes on foot gets you to C'ville's famous pedestrian downtown mall. From there the University of Virginia is a short, free trolley ride away (or a 5 minute drive from Alexander House.) The historic Monticello estate of Thomas Jefferson is a 5 minute drive.
While in Charlottesville, you may also want to visit Court Square, Live Arts Theater, Carter Mountain Orchard, Michie Tavern, Ash Lawn Highland, the Barboursville ruins, the Kluge-Ruhe Aboriginal Art Museum, the University of Virginia Art Museum, and the City Market. Many of these attractions are within walking distance or easily reached by Charlottesville's free public trolley.
