This is a brick ranch house in the town of Madison. You will be in the master bedroom with a private bathroom. I may or may not be home, but either way you are welcome to hang out in my living room and use my kitchen.

I am a hiking guide in Shenandoah National Park and beyond, I can tell you where to go for the best hikes, or I can be your guide! Madison has some sweet restaurants, an awesome brewery just two miles away and some nice shopping including the Plow and Hearth Outlet Store.

Melanie has great reviews and our stay validated those top ratings. Melanie was very responsive, her place was extremely clean, and her recommendations for the area were spot on. A great place to stay if you want to explore historic central Virginia.

We enjoyed our stay at Melanie’s. We appreciated her local tips, and we loved Yoder’s Market right down the street. Her home is super close to Old Rag! The space was clean, and we enjoyed the private bathroom.

Melanie was a great host even for the short time we were there. The room was as expected; very clean and comfy. Convenient parking. Great location! Close to many restaurants, wineries, and breweries. Hope to stay for a longer trip next time!

My husband and I stayed at Melanie’s for a long weekend and had a great stay ! The room was clean and cozy, and Melanie provided us with lots of tips for exploring the area. Shenandoah National Park, Charlottesville, or the Monticello wine trail are all within reasonable drive…

I am a 56 year young adventurer. I love to travel, see new places and meet new people. At home in the Blue Ridge Mountains I am a big hiker and volunteer in Shenandoah National Park. I enjoy being outdoors, hiking and biking or sitting on my porch enjoying a nice glass of wine…
