Enjoy our authentic Southern compound located in the upscale Buena Vista/Reynolda Historic District. Spanish for “beautiful view” here we give it a Southern twist and pronounce it—Byoo-Na Vista. The most beautiful neighborhood in our city, it was designed as a tree-lined haven in the middle of a bustling city and the first homes were built in 1915.
Fun Fact: The neighborhood became a showplace for some of the most popular American architects of the 20th century—most notably, Charles Barton Keen, a favorite of wealthy tobacco & textile families. He designed our treasured Reynolda House for Katharine & R.J. Reynolds, which is a 5 minute drive from the cottage.
What Makes Our Location So Fabulous
We love this neighborhood and it makes an ideal base for exploring our city. The location is fantastic, you’re just minutes to basically everything. You’ll get a real feel for what it’s like to live here and you’ll have fun discovering our local neighborhood spots.
The cottage is tucked away and secluded and yet we’re close to great restaurants, shops & sights. One of our favorite perks is being able to walk to the Airstream for the best coffee in town!
If you’re a runner, you can head out of the driveway and hit the pavement; there’s so many different routes to take (and some challenging hills). Or go on a leisurely stroll and explore the interesting architecture.
We’re close to some cool vintage furniture & home goods shops. Do some shopping and then pop in the homemade gelato shop for an afternoon pick-me-up.
Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods, Publix & Harris Teeter grocery stores are an easy 5 minute drive away. On Saturdays from April to November, you can check out the organic farmer’s market.
