My husband and I got married at the Inn on August 2, 2014 and rented the entire B&B for the weekend. We knew when we rented that the establishment was beautiful, but actually having the Chestnut experience created the most romantic wedding weekend ever! Our family who occupied the rooms were stunned by the beauty, amenities, the service, the food, and just the small personal touches that you would find in a 5 star diamond hotel. When I returned to work, people who weren't invited were coming up asking for pictures because those that went bragged that it was the most beautiful wedding they had ever seen. Troy and Kathleen were awesome and went out of their way to make our stay and our wedding exactly how we wanted and were so accommodating of our crazy wedding schedules. Troy was awesome at throwing compliments that made me feel like a was the best bride ever and Kathleen kept me so calm! My husband and I are planning another getaway there soon and it had only been a week! Don't think, just do it! It is worth every penny!
Chestnut Hill is both beautiful and friendly! We hope to return many times--if we can get reservations--it's almost always booked up. We would highly recommend it to anyone who wants comfort in an elegant home with plenty of relaxing spaces: the back porch, the huge downstairs den, the formal living room, the second floor lounge. Chestnut Hill also deserves its reputation for outstanding multi-course breakfasts. It's a superb B&B and a great getaway.
My husband and I stayed just one night at the Inn at Westwood Farm, and I've fallen in love with the place. It's a serene setting, within walking distance of the James Madison Montpelier estate. Elizabeth and Jay, the innkeepers, obviously love running a B&B, enjoy their guests, and have put thought into even the smallest details. And I have to say, this is the cleanest home I've ever been in - immaculate! Even the light fixtures sparkle. I'm dying to go back for a longer visit.
My fiance and I stayed here during a visit for cville. The location is very convenient. It is just a few minute walk to the downtown mall as well as the stop for the free trolley. The room was clean & beautiful and the AC worked perfectly (mid-July, 90 F+ temps outside). The price was competitive with the Omni Hotel downtown, but the personal touches and unique rooms make the South Street Inn a much better value. They very kindly provided both vegetarian and gluten free breakfast options for me and my fiance. We can't wait to return to cville and stay here!
My now husband and I stumbled upon this delightful bed and breakfast on accident when searching for a place to elope. First off, the building itself, as well as the surrounding property, is stunning inside and out. It has been completely renovated and was the perfect backdrop for our ceremony. The innkeepers, Troy and Kathleen are the most friendly people that you will ever encounter. They treated us like VIPs the entire time. As far as the ceremony goes, all we had to do was get a license and show up. They took care of absolutely everything else. Breakfast and an evening appetizer is included in the stay. Even though Kathleen assured me that neither she nor Troy went to culinary school, you would think differently. They made the most delicious food from the best ingredients. We never needed to eat lunch because breakfast was so amazing and filling. We cannot wait to come back to Chestnut Hill for our first anniversary. I would recommend this bed and breakfast to anyone looking for a fun and fancy yet relaxing place to stay or site for your wedding. It's really the best. ~Megan and Jason
My wife and I would absolutely stay here again. This is a beautiful inn in a lovely area. The staff go the extra mile, as evident in every aspect of the impeccable service, food, and amenities. Also, the staff have intimate knowledge of the region, and answer any questions you may have to ensure you get the most out of the local attractions. This was a very relaxing, enjoyable stay.
We loved our visit to South Street! The hosts were wonderful - gave great info on places to go and things to see. We had breakfast on the wrap-around porch each morning ... it was a walk to explore downtown Charlottesville - very convenient! We will be back South Street - thank you!
We visited The Inn at 400 West High for our 20th wedding anniversary weekend in C'ville, where we met. We loved it! The rooms are very comfortable; the breakfast room is relaxing and beautiful. Breakfast was exceptional. Since it was our anniversary, I asked for a small fruit/cheese tray which they provided with all local foods. We enjoyed it sitting out in the garden area. The Inn is conveniently located within a short walk of the downtown walking mall in C'ville. We will definitely be back!
Wonderful place to stay. Have been here before, the only negative this stay was the breakfast. Everything else from the beds to the shower to the inn keeper is top notch. Will continue to stay here when I visit Charlottesville.
We went to Charlottesville the weekend of UVA commencement, 2014 and the Foxfield Inn was an oasis of peace and calm after attending the various crowded events at the University. Dan and Kathryn helped us to find our way around the town, and had the UVA schedule of events and map of the grounds waiting in our room in anticipation of our needs. They managed to find us a last minute dinner reservation on the day of graduation (when everything is booked!) after our previous plans fell through. We stayed in the Hunt Room, with beautiful views and a bathroom more luxurious than any I've seen in an Inn. Would strongly recommend Foxfield Inn and hope to go back again.
Elizabeth and Jay are great hosts. Their home is beautiful and we were made to feel like visiting family. The guidance on food and places to visit was on point. We will certainly stay again when we visit the area in the future.
I can't say enough good things about the Inn at Westwood Farm. Elizabeth and Jay have anticipated absolutely every longing of a person in need of respite. The careful cultivation of the natural beauty of the land, the house, the food - everything is designed for relaxation and renewal. Next time I'll stay longer.
Back in Charlottesville for reunions, we wished this most welcoming and cozy refuge had been available when we were students. Gracious hosts, close to sites for shopping and dining, very comfortable beds, and a relaxed atmosphere made this an A-Plus adventure.
We couldn't imagine an easier way to elope than our trip to VA and Holladay House. Sharon handled every detail, all we had to do was show up with our license. Flowers, wine, background music, decor in the parlor, nothing went without Sharon's expert eye and everything was perfect. We enjoyed our stay in the John Madison Suite which was plush and comfortable. Breakfast in the morning was delightful! For couples looking to run away and get married, there's no better than Holladay House to make your dream come true! We're looking forward to returning!
Chestnut Hill Bed and Breakfast is the best place to visit for a little relaxation! Troy and Kathleen made our stay perfect in every way. The atmosphere and warm greeting was outstanding. Our room was comfortable and so charming.
We recently stayed at the Inn at Westwood Farms for a wedding celebration. Not only were the accommodations fabulous, but Elizabeth and Jay were the most gracious hosts. The breakfasts were delicious and thoughtful, all of the staff at the inn were quick to help and eager to make our stay and the wedding as perfect as could be! We cannot wait to return for a weekend getaway sometime in the near future!
What a truly delightful weekend! Everything about this B&B is elegant in a very, very quaint, relaxing and simplified way. The rooms, the decor, the landscaping, the meals,... All of it combined to make unforgettable memories I shall cherish forever! I'm so delighted my son and daughter-in-law chose this beautiful and elegant B&B setting for their wedding celebration! I can't wait to tell everyone I know about my weekend at Chestnut Hill and I am already planning to return.
Wonderful stay in the Hunt Country Room which had a gas fireplace, a very large bathroom with a jacuzzi tub, and a very comfortable king bed. Outdoor hot tub which we were able to enjoy by ourselves one night. Dan & Kathryn are excellent hosts and the food is simply amazing!! Very nice happy hour with wine and appetizers enjoyed by all the guests.
