Located on "Fraternity/Sorority Row" on the Randolph-Macon College campus. A quaint Edwardian Era home; built in 1905, and the floors squeak. House listed in the Ashland Historic District, Virginia Landmarks Register and National Register of Historic Places. Amenities reflect a more gracious period. The proprietor lives in a separate wing, and is always available for help and information. Cats in confined room.

The space

Ashland is called the Center of the Universe, and this house is located only a stones throw from the most important place in the Center of the Universe: Randolph-Macon College. There is nothing modern about the house, but it is well lived in and exudes the feeling of years ago.

A quiet, relaxing journey back in time. Upstairs 4 bedrooms & 2 full bathrooms. Downstairs is a formal dinning room, parlor, library, half bath, full kitchen with adjoining Florida room. Swimming pool & patio.

Historic Town of Ashland and Hanover County have many quaint and interesting places to visit. A walk down our lovely sidewalks past picturesque old commercial buildings and beautifully maintained homes reminds us of the rich traditions of our past.

There are wonderful restaurants, country inns, bed and breakfasts, and shops of all kinds and a wealth of history in both the Town of Ashland and Hanover County.

Guest access

Guests have access to the pool in warmer weather, the parlor, library, formal dining room, kitchen, florida room and the back yard and patio. And, of course, the upstairs bedrooms and bathrooms are only for guests.

Interaction with guests

Great little house, can't beat the price! May have missed it in the description, but didn't know he had cats. Even though they stayed in their own room you could smell them upstairs and from one bedroom it was pretty strong. Enjoyed our stay very much and would definitely recommend again.

Great value- brought 4 to sleep comfortably for two nights. Plenty of room and parking. Nelson greeted us upon arrival and had snacks, coffee, and water ready for us at all times. He went out of his way to answer questions and made it a point to make sure we had everything. We were only there to sleep and we're gone most of the day. The only issue we had was the cat that was secluded. Never saw it, but made noises throughout the night. Kept us awake for bits, but that was more our fault. I should have thought about this possibility before booking. We would stay again but would bring earplugs. Thanks for the hospitality Nelson!

What a fabulous place to stay! Close to Richmond and the Historic Virginia Triangle, but in a quiet location. The house is stunning and having a pool in this heat is a real bonus. Thank you Nelson for your hospitality and sharing your local knowledge with us.

Pretty house on a quiet quaint street. Close to many historical attractions and places to eat. Mr. Nelson gives great advise on area attractions and places to eat!

Mr. Nelson greeted us as we drove off College Avenue and into the early 1900's. The entire experience in his 1906 home on "fraternity row" was just like being in a history book. He is a fun loving story teller with a winning smile. Everything was flawless. The home was neat and in order with plenty to read and lots of sitting areas. The built in pool was nice and cool in the summer heat. Fast Internet and air-conditioning in the swelter of a Virginia summer made our stay most enjoyable. Bravo, Mr. Nelson. Special note: Let's keep this place our little secret. Don't tell anyone about it. Thanks. Dennis, Jen, Bethany, Christian and Hunter.

A comfortable home with a comfortable porch, central to Ashland's restaurants and shops, Randolph Macon College, and the train station, to which you can walk. Don't miss the area's many historical sites.

Very accommodating and the place was centralized to everything we needed. Rustic B&B feel to the house.
