This 2-level loft-style apartment teems with historic character. Its interior brick walls, black & white porcelain tiles, and hardwood floors create an incredibly welcoming ambiance. The place is close to the area's best restaurants and the James River, Blue Ridge Mountains, and the area's four universities are all nearby. Its panoramic views from above the city are wondrous with no late afternoon or evening direct sun. Truly an ideal place for couples, solo adventurers, and business travelers.

The space

The building itself, "Gilliam House" was built in the mid-19th century and is an exceptional building with exterior and interior walls as much as 5 layers of brick thick. The suite includes some of these brick walls exposed on the interior along with original wood flooring in the living room and classic black and white porcelain tiling in the kitchen and the bathroom. The spiral staircase is "cool" and the suite includes a high efficiency front-loading washer and dryer along with an expansive private back brick patio with views overlooking downtown Lynchburg.

Guest access

The apartment is self contained and guests have access to the entire suite. Please note that the large brick patio behind the suite is also private and is for use only by the guests (and their friends) of this suite.

Interaction with guests

I live and work very close to the building and strive to make myself available for any needs or problems which our guests encounter. Nonetheless, I tend to "stay out of the way" and will generally not impose on my guests and will only come by if requested to attend to an issue.

Great place in downtown Lynchburg. Kurt was very responsive and made us feel at home!

The Juliette sweet is outstanding in comfort and style. It holds all the rustic charm of a Victorian mountain home with artistic modern touches. The location was near to the downtown area affording easy access to a variety of eating areas and outdoor activities. Kurt was very easy to correspond with and had a wonderfully welcoming snack basket full of healthy snacks perched on the counter AND a fully stocked Keurig. I am am Amaris Watson and I approve this message . But seriously I definitely recommend this place.

I stayed at this apartment for a little over a month before moving to the area. The location is great, you are walking distance to the many restaurants and shops in downtown Lynchburg, but on a more quiet street where you can typically park right in front of the building. The apartment itself has lots of space, a great kitchen with all the pots/pans/flatware you need, and a great patio with views of Lynchburg. Overall, it's an excellent value, that I'll be recommending to friends and family who plan to visit the area.

Kurt's 2 story loft in Lynchburg, VA, was simply amazing. The character of the old building paired with the modern amenities was breathtaking - and the clawfoot tub!!!!! Gah!!! You can tell that every detail was planned to perfection. The actual building was located 2 blocks from Main Street, and we were able to walk all around Lynchburg and enjoy the beautiful river, local shops, Farmer's Market, and fun atmosphere. The outdoor patio and fire pit was a nice addition to an already great place. Kurt left a map and recommendations for where to go eat close by. I would recommend this place to anyone and everyone looking for a weekend getaway or a place to relax during a work stay.

This apartment ranks at the top in all categories. Location, space, ambiance and modern updates lend to the charm of this apartment located in the historical district. Easy access to great food and shops. If you love the outdoors then this location allows for a great walking tour of the city or a walk (or run) by the James River.

This was the perfect place for the weekend. Easy to get to close to everything downtown. Great view off the back patio area. I will definitely be looking into Kurt's other places if and when I come back to Lynchburg.

Wonderful location. Wonderful space. Loved being in an historic area within walking distance of many restaurants, bars and coffee shops. Will stay here again if available.

I'm a former professor who loves renovating historic buildings, of which Lynchburg has a plethora. My wife and I believe in striving to build a better world and tend to be eclectic in our likes and preferences. Our approach to hosting is to provide meticulously crafted luxury that our guests recognize and appreciate.
