In the spirit of the Metta we are taking every precaution to maintain clean and healthy home for our guests and our family by following CDC best practices.

The Metta Home was built in 1895 for Irvin Hudson, an upholsterer, and features original pine hardwood floors & vibrant colors throughout. It’s a visual representation of not what we think, how we think—the embodiment of our thoughts, philosophies and values.

This is an old home located on a quiet block in historic Church Hill. We love our home and hope that you will too! It was built in 1895 for the son of the of Mr and Mrs Hudson, their house is right next door! The flow of the home is wonderful and gets great natural light. The entire house excluding the bathrooms, has original pine hardwood floors. We ask that you remove your shoes when coming in the house to help preserve these floors.

On the first floor you have the living room, dining area with bar (wine fridge), half bath: with washer and dryer, and kitchen (gas stove, fridge, dishwasher, and microwave: in the wooden cabinet) with our favorite place just off the kitchen, the screened in back porch! We enjoy our morning coffee and watch the birds, so peaceful. Speaking of coffee, please help yourself to the coffee and all the fix'ns! Had a long journey, want a sip of something or a snack we have a few of our favorites in the fridge for you!

On the second floor is the master bedroom: which has a king bed (Tuft and Needle) and a small reading porch off the bedroom. The second bedroom has a queen bed. All of our bed linens are from our newly launched Mett? Home brand! Egyptian cotton sheets, organic blankets, and linen duvet covers to name a few. If you like them you can buy them and we will ship them to your home! In between both bedrooms is our den, where you can watch TV: Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon. The full bathroom is also located on the 2nd floor.

We are in walking distance to soooo much! and an easy Uber or Lyft to downtown, the Fan, Carytown, and the trendy micro brew haven Scott's Addition. Have a pup that you cant leave at home? Please message me for inquiries, as extra fees will apply. It's perfect if you are looking for a quaint place located in a calm walkable neighborhood!

Our old home is located on a quiet and centrally located block in historic Church Hill, a walkable neighborhood with architecture dating from the early 1800s. Many of the neighborhood's parks have amazing views of the Richmond skyline with the downtown. Which is just a short walk, bike, or drive.
