Fantastic weekend getaway spot!

The High Meadows Vineyard is a great place for a couples retreat. My wife and I enjoyed everything about the area. The food was delicious and healthy, the town is charming, and it is located close to many attractions and wineries. We enjoyed our stay so much that we are planning another trip for next year. I would recommend High Meadows Vineyard to anyone looking for a fun and unique vacation.

Stayed there for a weekend getaway. The location is great and close local wineries and breweries. The breakfast was amazing as was the surrounding restaurants. All of the people were friendly and would recommend this to anyone.

Very nice b & b. The owners were great. Scottsville is a small town, with several good restaurants, close to Charlottesville. I would do the trip again and suggest you do the same.

Cozy B&B

5 on March 28, 2015

We thoroughly enjoyed our 2-night stay in the Cottage Room at High Meadows Vineyard Inn. It's beautifully decorated, very comfortable, and peacefully quiet. The Cottage is only a few steps away from the main Inn; but it proved to be perfect for someone with back and hip trouble, because no steep stairs were necessary to get in and out of our room with luggage, etc. The 2 breakfast meals we enjoyed were deliciously excellent. We didn't meet Cynthia, but Nancy is fun to talk to and is the font of info for things to do, see, and eat around Scottsville and nearby Charlottesville. This was our first stay using the value of a Living Social coupon; however, we would definitely consider staying at High Meadows again even without a Living Social coupon!

Enjoyable 2 Days

Great room in the Cottage Suite. Pleasant proprieter. Good breakfasts. Couple good restaurants in town. Short trip to Charlottesville. Enjoyed our stay. Guess I'm spoiled, but missed having a TV.

Great place to stay if you want to get "unplugged". The room was comfortable and very charming. And the breakfasts were delicious! We would definitely go back and stay again.

Perfect Weekend

My husband and I had a perfect weekend at High Meadows. Our room (the Willow room) was beautiful and comfortable. The two breakfasts we enjoyed at the Inn were of very high quality. The grounds were lovely and we enjoyed taking a morning stroll before breakfast. I can only imagine how beautiful it will be once warmer weather arrives. After a full day of wineries and breweries, we were very happy to return to our accommodations. I am very much looking forward to our next visit!

A delightful and colorful Inn. Nancy was full of great suggestions. Winery's close by. Delicious food in town nearby. If you enjoy history, visit Monticello and Monroes homes. Also hiking abounds.

Wonderful B&B

4.8 on March 04, 2015

We stayed for two nights in the Peony Room. It was a lovely room. Unfortunately I didn't check ahead to confirm there was a shower, so we used a handheld shower for two days! But the host was wondeful (Nancy) and the food was outstanding. We did a lot of wine tasting and cider tasting. Don't miss the blackberry cobbler at the James Tavern!
