About the property

2 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom In Historic Downtown Lynchburg, VA

This lovely upstairs apartment is in a 1908 home that has been recently restored and updated and now provides the best to those visiting Lynchburg. Walk to the public market, great local restaurants, restored historic warehouses, a coffee house, the local YMCA (they offer day use options), the historic riverfront with miles of trails along both the James and Blackwater Creek, and many lovely boutiques and antique stores. The house is also at the edge of the James River Arts and Culture District: check out all the pianos scattered around town this summer. They're unlocked to play, so you may even find an impromptu concert. If you're in town for Fridays: in the summer you can walk to Cheers at the Public Market, or take the trolley to tour the local Galleries from 5-8 on First Fridays.

When you're not exploring downtown Lynchburg, we're also very convenient to the Expressway, which makes getting around easy.

About Lynchburg Property

Kathryn and Mark have renovated historic homes in the past and are both homeowners in downtown Lynchburg. This is their first joint venture, but Mark has been doing rentals for many years.

Lynchburg Property purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Lynchburg Property chose Diamond Hill

We started Lynchburg Property as a way of preserving the older homes on the edge of downtown Lynchburg. The past few years have seen an increase in activity downtown and a growing energy. This property lets visitors experience that, too.

What makes this apartment unique

We hope those who love history, old homes and architecture will use our property as a home base to explore. And for those who come to town to take a course or two at one of our higher institutions, we hope you'll find it relaxing to come home to. Long term rates are flexible, contact owner for long term rates.

My family and I came into town and stayed at this beautiful rental house/apartment for my recent graduation from Liberty University. I can't express enough how great we enjoyed our stay at this property. This place was perfect for our stay and felt like a home away from home.

Loved this apartment

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. The apartment is beautiful and the neighborhood is quiet even though we were concerned about it at first. The owners are very sweet & came by & checked on us. Would definitely stay again!

Your house was very nice, neighboring houses not so much......

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our time in your apt. It was lovely! That end of the street was kind of rough looking, maybe soon your neighbors will do some improvements too. I would highly recommend a stay in your place!

Owner's Response: We're glad you enjoyed your stay. Yes, our work to renovate (plus the boom of downtown itself) has motivated our neighbor to renovate/upgrade his houses! Hopefully he will be done by the next time you visit.

This second floor apartment was perfect for a weekend getaway with the girls! Six of us comfortably stayed here to run the Virginia Ten Miler. It is located in Downtown Lynchburg and walking distance from a number of cute, delicious restaurants. The house had updated amenities and was nicely furnished. I would highly recommend anyone stay here if they are coming to Lynchburg!
