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.
A well-appointed, quiet room featuring a private bath, high quality linens, flat screen tv, Blu-ray player, and free wi-fi.

Carolyn was lovely and helpful over the phone. She sent a helpful e-mail the day before our stay, customizing an early check-in time, and making sure we had our plans for C-ville worked out. We arrived even earlier than expected, called Carolyn, and she came right over to check us in. The B&B is beautifully decorated with beautiful colors, fabrics, furnishings, and accent pieces. There is thoughtful attention to detail, such as large umbrellas for use at every exterior door, comfortable bed, lovely bed linens, and huge rainfall showerhead. There are tons of books to read and games to play. One trade-off of the ideal central downtown location is the space. The kitchen, dining room, and common room are all one combined room. The cooking occurs in the same room that breakfast is served. You eat at small metal cafe tables and chairs. The Preston Suite is large overall with a sitting room and a sun room, but the trade-off is that it has a small bedroom and small bathroom. Breakfast is advertised as between 8:00-10:00 a.m. Carolyn asked what time we’d like breakfast and we said 8:00-8:30 a.m. When we came down at 8:15 a.m., three people were in the kitchen/breakfast room/common room in the process of making breakfast. They said that breakfast was not until 9:00 a.m. Breakfast tasted fine, but it was the smallest breakfast we've ever had at a B&B, very atypical. Breakfast on the second day was a huge improvement. A lovely young couple had replaced the previous day's threesome for cooking and serving breakfast. They had breakfast ready and the kitchen cleaned up by the time we came down at 8:30 a.m. Breakfast was again tasty, but very tiny and unfilling. A few concerns. The Preston Suite was extremely cold at all times, especially at night. The first morning, I had hot water for the first 30 seconds or so of my shower, and the remainder was ice cold. Carolyn e-mailed us that very same day to apologize and inform us that she'd have them looked into.
Thank you for your review. We always appreciate when our guests take the time to give us insight into how we are doing. As I said in my earlier email to you, I wish that we had known of the temperature concerns in your room as we could have easily made it toasty for you! I'm glad that your husband didn't have the same problem with the shower that you did and that your second morning was so much better. We looked into why that could have happened and will continue to monitor it. In my email response to you the day that you checked out I did apologize for the miscommunication in breakfast times and I will take this chance to apologize again. I do hope you will return to our lovely city and if you choose not to stay with us, please know that we have some other beautiful Bed and Breakfasts in the area.

We stayed in the Ridge apartment at the Inn and absolutely enjoyed our stay there. Great service and accommodations. Would definitely come back here.

Quaint and clean, The Inn at 400 West High stands at the top of all places I have ever stayed. Caroline, the owner, is charming and her establishment is sophisticated in every aspect. Located just a block away from the downtown mall area, this bed and breakfast offers absolutely everything you want in a place to stay! In fact, my husband and I have stayed here on two separate occasions because we enjoy it so much! This is by far the best, most hospitable place I have ever stayed!

Our stay at the Inn couldn't have been any more wonderful. It's so full of charm and not a single detail has been overlooked. Free wi-fi, free bottled water, fresh-made breakfast in the morning, big spacious rooms, fabulous bathrooms, and the chance to meet people you otherwise never would - these are just a few of the things you get when you stay at the Inn at 400 West High. Carolyn, the inn-keeper, is just fantastic. She's so personable and will sit and talk to you for as long as you'd like! She opens her doors to everyone and there's always a smile waiting for you. I wish I could've stayed longer and this will now be the only place I stay when I'm in the area!

This was one of our favorite B&B experiences. We stayed four days and it was easy, convenient and simple... Great Peace of Mind.
