This is a private room in a modest, 4-bedroom 2 bath tri-level home in the heart of Blacksburg, Virginia - perfect for anyone looking for a comfortable place to stay near all downtown amenities and within walking distance to downtown Blacksburg and the Virginia Tech campus (and Lane Stadium!). Note that the host and SO currently live on the property full-time and there are two other AirBNB rooms, so there may be other AirBNB guests during your reservation.

The space

This is a private room in a modest, 4-bedroom 2 bath tri-level home in the heart of Blacksburg, Virginia - perfect for anyone looking for a comfortable place to stay near all downtown amenities and within walking distance to Virginia Tech campus (and Lane Stadium!). This room features a full-size bed, and a ceiling fan. The house is equipped with TVs, WiFi (cable internet), central heat/AC, a fully-equipped kitchen, washer/dryer, and has a private driveway or convenient on-street parking. Guests should note that this is a non-smoking residence, but guests are welcome to smoke on the porch or decks outside.

Guests should also note that this house is currently undergoing renovations, so there are certain areas in the house which are unfinished and may not *look* that appealing (lack of baseboard in living area, patched wall areas that need to be painted, etc.), but we are working hard on making things look better - one day at a time! Nevertheless, everything is fully-functional that you will come in contact with - if you have any questions or concerns, please ask!

This room will have semi-private access to a full bathroom downstairs, on the same level as this room. Upstairs bedroom residents/AirBNB guests will primarily use the full bathroom upstairs. Guests should be aware they may need to share the bathroom at times, but shower schedules have never been a problem - we'll work it out! Note that this is a downstairs bedroom and as such, sound from upstairs (footsteps, etc.) can travel into the downstairs areas - it is not well-suited to light sleepers or those who are early to bed or late to rise.

The current residents include two humans (Leslie and Will) and one female feline. Other human guests must be pet-friendly and allergy-free! Leslie is a researcher at Virginia Tech and Will works in the local public school system - we always love to make AirBNB guests feel welcome in our home! Note that other AirBNB guests may be in the house at the same time as your reservation, as well.

This house boasts of a convenient location:

>Just 0.6 miles to the edge of campus
>A 1.7 mile walk to Lane Stadium across campus
>Less than a 1 mile walk to the heart of downtown
>Less than 3 minutes from a Main Street bus stop and less than one minute from a stop on the Progress Street line
>Within 15 minutes driving of the shopping area of Christiansburg, Virginia
>Within 15 minutes of Pandapas Pond
>Within 30 minutes of The Cascades
>Within 30 minutes of Mountain Lake Resort and Hotel
...And so much more!!!

Guests are encouraged to ask questions prior to booking to ensure an enjoyable stay! Thanks for looking & safe travels!!

Fantastic location for anything Virginia Tech. Walkable to campus, night life, and downtown. Leslie was a fantastic host whom met me at the home and provided me insights on Blacksburg and the surrounding areas. She was very responsive in communication and even waited late for me to arrive. The house is well equipped and comfortable. I highly suggest this home if you are in Blacksburg.

A much valuable choice for those VT students or visitors looking for either a temporary or long stay. Leslie's place is actually easy to reach from Campus entrance and Blacksburg downtown. Also she proved a world-class host by advising me on how to move around in town both on foot or on the local transit bus service and also on how to get started and enjoy my courses at Virginia Tech.

Leslie was a great host! The room was clean and comfortable (just as pictured). Leslie was available for any questions we had as well. Would definitely return next time I'm in Blacksburg!

Both Leslie and her kitty are very friendly. Her place is walking distance to VT, is well-furnished and well-supplied, and is very comfortable overall.

The strong ratings on this listing and for Leslie are well-deserved. Everything was spot-on. Just what I needed for a weekend trip to Blacksburg. Highly recommend.

The location is great if you want to walk to downtown and the VT campus. Clean and quiet room. Downstairs is very private and separate from the rest of the house. Leslie is a pleasant hostess.

A few of my favorite things are VT Football, music, theatre, and travel.  Most of my Fall Saturdays are spent in Blacksburg tailgating with friends and family.  My favorite travel destinations include the Chesapeake Bay, Costa Rica, and the Dominican Republic.  My favorite books …
