You'll fall in love with this space, just like I did. It's the perfect getaway. Tastefully renovated from top to bottom, it even smells good because of the beautiful exposed beams. Steps to Old Town Winchester with all of its restaurants, shops, bars, and even an amazing (and "country cheap") yoga studio.

The space

This is a lived in charming old cabin-like home. The owner is a grad student at Shenandoah and lives here during the week; Tuesday - Thursday. Kim the cleaning lady turns over the room in between stays. Please do not stay here if you're uncomfortable with a lived-in feel aka: some food in the fridge/freezer a bit of dust here and there... mismatched towels. sheets will always be clean and the space always cozy!

Other things to note

Airbnb doesn't have a selection for this but we have a lovely purple couch that's super comfy to sleep on. That would be the "second bed."

If you have a pet please indicate an extra "guest" when booking.

A really warm and cozy place! Celesta and Bennett went out of their way to make us feel comfortable. Great for trips around Shenandoah National Park.

The apartment is so cute! The location is great and you can walk to pretty much anywhere you'd need. The neighborhood was fairly quiet too if you like to sleep with the window open. If you're really sensitive to cats though--I got cat allergies downstairs, so just pack some Claritin ahead of time.

Excellent location, adorable architecture and everything you need for a short weekend stay in Winchester! Lived in as described, but very clean. Also - super easy check in and check out - required no planning or frantic phone calls on our part (which is always nice when you are running 5h behind and arrive around midnight!) We had very little communication with Celesta because we didn't ever need to ask questions - she sent very detailed instructions before our stay. I will note that it would be best if you can easily navigate a narrow, sharply curving old-school staircase (don't stay here if you have balance/vertigo issues or trouble climbing stairs). That said, if you don't have to worry about that, this is ideal for an affordable, park-the-car-and-leave-it romantic weekend! (Parking was very easy too!)

Adorable little apartment convenient to the pedestrian mall! Would not recommend the steep stairs for the elderly, but it was perfect for us! Super nice neighbors, too!

We communicated with Celesta a couple of days before arrival as suggested. We arrived at 4 on a Friday afternoon to find garbage on the porch, dirty dishes in the sink, a fridge full of someone else's food, and a very untidy place. We contacted her immediately and she apologized and said it was a communication problem with her cleaning lady. A sad mistake, but very inconvenient for us. We had to find a place to stay at very short notice, and we have only received a partial refund in spite of repeated messages. We are out more than $80 and Celesta has not responded to our messages. We waited four days to give her time to sort this out and respond, and have heard nothing.

A midwestern girl happily transplanted to DC, I love singing, practicing yoga, and playing outside. Concert and theatre going are my favorite ways to spend evenings, aside from a quiet night in with a glass of wine and home made meal.
