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.

Every year, I treat my husband to a birthday getaway, which happens to fall near Valentine's Day. This year, we visited Charlottesville, VA, and stayed in The Inn at 400 West High, a beautiful B&B located mere steps from the Historic Downtown Mall and a short drive from Monticello. Carolyn, the owner, does everything in her power to make sure that her guests have an exceptional experience. We stayed in the Altamont Room, which features a working fireplace, a king size bed, and brick floors. The room was cozy, comfortable and very peaceful. We even woke up to birds singing -- birds! -- which was a pleasant change from the sirens and traffic we usually awaken to in DC. Other features are an a-m-a-z-i-n-g shower as well as the most delicious breakfasts we've encountered anywhere, courtesy of Anne, a talented gourmet cook. She also made the BEST strawberry cupcakes for Valentine's Day. We had a wonderful time and recommend it highly.
It was so fun to have you visit and I so enjoyed talking with you! D.C. isn't that far away, so come back soon! Charlottesville has so much to offer and we have 4 more rooms for you to try!

Calling from Maine, my first telephone conversation with the owner of 400 West High, promised I could expect an unforgettable stay at this extraordinarily unique bed and breakfast in the heart of charming Charlottesville. I was warmly greeted by a family members and shown to my cozy room. A lovely fireplace was glowing near the large, inviting bed. French doors led out to an intimate veranda overlooking the city. Touches of Tuscany were everywhere. Good friends joined me for a gourmet breakfast in the B&B "gathering room" before my departure. Thanks so much, Carolyn, for the memory of a perfect stay.
Pat....It was wonderful to finally meet you! You are the definition of light and love and positive energy! I'm glad your travels to Maine went well and I hope that you will stop by when you travel south again. Let's keep in touch!

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.
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!

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.
This is what I love about being an Innkeeper! I LOVE the happy stories! I'm so happy that your weekend went so well and wish you both all the happiness that life can bring! Thank you for your kind words and knowing that you are considering making Charlottesville your new home.....let us know how we can help you get to know the area!

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
We are so happy that your stay was what you wanted and needed! We are looking forward to your next visit and hope it will be soon! Thanks for taking the time to share your experience.

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.
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!

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)
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!

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

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.
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!

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.
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!
