About

Less than a block away from the Historic Downtown Mall, The Inn at 400 West High is designed to appeal to a clientele who enjoys gourmet meals, fine wines, high culture, and a bit of shopping. Charlottesville’s Downtown Mall is an open air pedestrian mall that functions as the cultural heart of the city. With restaurants serving up everything from fine French dinners and spicy Asian feasts to Southern comfort food and Italian gelato, you won’t mind taking a break from the array of shops featuring handmade clothing, antiques, and handcrafted home furnishings. In the evening, stop in and see a play at the Live Arts Theater, take in a splendid performance at the historic Paramount Theatre, or catch a big-name concert at the newly renovated Jefferson Theater; all three are within walking distance from The Inn at 400 West High.

Absolutely Wonderful!

5 on November 12, 2014

My husband and I stayed at The Inn at 400 West High for the weekend of our wedding, and it was absolutely perfect. The people who worked there were so warm and welcoming, the food was delicious, and the room was beautiful. Our photographer got some wonderful pictures in the courtyard before the ceremony, and Carolyn was kind enough to snap some pictures of us together before our rehearsal. I can honestly say there isn't a single thing I would change. We had a fantastic time and are planning to come back in a few years for an anniversary getaway.

Innkeeper Response
It was so wonderful to be able to share in your special weekend! God bless you on this new journey and we hope to see you very, very soon!


A Wonderful Experience

5 on September 25, 2014

We really enjoyed our stay here. Based on previous recommendations, I picked 400 W. High as a place to propose to my fiance (she said yes!), and I wasn't disappointed.This is a beautiful B&B. The rooms are attractive, warm, comfortable and quiet - we stayed in the Altamont Room. The common areas are perfect for a small group or for a larger family get together. The breakfasts were wonderful, and we appreciated the availability of drinks (coffee, tea, water and soda). We really felt as if we were a guest in someone's home.The Inn is just a 2 minute walk to the downtown pedestrian mall and easy access to the University of Virginia as well as local historical sites. We will definitely be back for another visit.

Best Yet

My wife and I had a great one night stay at the Inn. Every detail was covered, room was very clean, coffee, water and snacks available 24/7 and staff could not have been more helpful. We were very pleased with 400 West High and would recommnend the stay to anyone. KD

Innkeeper Response

Beautiful and friendly B and B

4.6 on September 08, 2014

The Inn at 400 West was a delightful stop on our way home from a visit to NC. We were a family of three which typically makes it difficult to stay at a B and B. This Inn had a room that was perfect for us. In addition, the staff was friendly and helpful, the Innkeeper was extremely knowledgeable and communicated prior to our arrival, and after our departure, and the breakfast cooked by the morning staff person (I forget her name) was wonderful. All the amenities and extra touches were so nice; we even played a couple of board games in our room in the evening that were available at the Inn. I wish we could have stayed longer than one night. I would return without hesitation.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your kind words. We always love to hear that the Inn was a relaxing, restful, and fun place to stay while in Charlottesville! Hope you will return soon!


Fabulous Girls' Weekend Spot!

5 on September 02, 2014

I just read all of the reviews already posted, and couldn't agree more with the 5-star ratings! We were five women in our 50s who travel to a different place every year for a long weekend. This was by far the best place we have stayed in all respects! The location, beautiful decor and garden, cozy rooms, comfortable beds and luxurious sheets, fabulous food, thoughtful "extras," and overall superb hospitality! We loved Amanda and her breakfasts! I would definitely stay here again and again. Tina (Austin, Texas)

Innkeeper Response
We love having girlfriend get-togethers at the Inn. The love and laughter is delightful! There is so much to do in beautiful Charlottesville that you need to come back!


Delightful!

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!

Innkeeper Response
It was so nice to have you celebrating at The Inn at 400 West High! We will look forward to your 21st!


Love this Bed and Breakfast

4.6 on June 13, 2014

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.

Innkeeper Response
It's always nice to have you visit and this time was especially nice since I got to meet your other daughter! Thanks for your comment about breakfast...not sure what happened, but we won't let you walk away from the table unhappy again! See you in September, if not before!


40 Years After....

5 on May 16, 2014

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.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for choosing The Inn at 400 West High on your recent visit for reunion weekend. Congratulations on 40 years in your career and that new book you just published! Hope to see you again in the near future!


Don't miss the Inn at 400 West High

This is a delightful B&B. The rooms are attractive, warm, comfortable and quiet - charming! The common areas are perfect for a small group or for a larger family get together. Amanda made terrific breakfasts and Carolyn was a gracious host. Readily available amenities such as coffee, tea and water. Just a 2 minute walk to the downtown pedestrian mall and easy access to the University of Virginia as well as local historical sites. We stayed in the Preston Suite. It could not have been better. Highly recommended.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for your kind words! So glad you had a wonderful stay! Looking forward to your next trip to Charlottesville!
