My wife and I love the high meadows vineyard inn. This year was our second time at this bed and breakfast and we are planning to make it our annual summertime getaway. Nancy's service was great and the environment is very relaxing and cozy. A great place to unwind from the hustle and bustle of the city life. The breakfast was also very good especially the crumb cake. Yummy!!!

Excellent, relaxing place

My husband and I spent two nights at the High Meadows Inn to celebrate our 20th Wedding Anniversary. The room was quiet and peaceful and the food was incredible! We had no idea that all of the food was organic, local and fresh but were pleased to learn of it. We would love to return and highly recommend to anyone desiring to get away in a relaxing setting and enjoy wonderful food!

Great service, great food

This bed and breakfast is nestled in wine country. The spacious rooms and cleanliness were a welcome to all. The breakfasts provided were made with locally grown produce and seasonal fruit. They were delicious!

The Highmeadows Vineyard Inn was a pleasure to visit. Our cottage rooms were clean, roomy and private. Everything about them was unique and inviting. The location was a very easy( and beautiful) drive to surrounding destinations. Nancy and Cynthia were delightful and helpful! I recommend the Inn!

Nancy and her family who run this B&B are very nice people. The property appears a little run down. It could be very beautiful but the shrubs and flowers need lots of attention. Things are overgrown. The gazebo was dirty and the patio which was inviting from a distance, needed to be cleaned in order to sit out there. We had a great stay, but if I was planning a wedding there which is something their website says they can do, I would be disappointed in the way the property looked.

What a great girls getaway! We had the pleasure of spending four days with Nancy and Cynthia at their charming bed and breakfast outside of Charlottesville, VA. We choose the cottage rooms and we're delighted with the privacy and the exquisite decor right down to the Turkish towels. The main house was comfy and full of beautiful colors, flea market finds and books, books, books! A delicious breakfast was prepared and stunningly presented each morning along with rich conversation with fellow travellers and the owner. All of our excursions were booked for us and included a lovely lunch from the Stone House Grill, which we highly recommend for dinner also. You can't go wrong staying at High Meadows if you are in the area for touring or business.

An Eclectic and Comfortable Hilltop Inn

We arrived on a rainy weekend to find the host, Nancy ready and willing to welcome us to her Inn. She expertly explained how the Inn worked and what we could expect. Our room was clean and the bed linens freshly changed. We enjoyed the air conditioning as a break from the excessive humidity. The Inn is graced with old windows with the ripply glass and old floor boards. Colorful paint made the centuries old place alive and vibrant. Everything was comfortable. We had a large jacuzzi tub in our room - the Peony room and the big windows let in plenty of light as well as relaxing views of the gardens outside. Breakfast was scrumptious and well-prepared. No stacks of sugar-laden pancakes here - crepes, berries, coffee, eggs benedict, fresh melons and flowers were on our plates. We enjoyed the proximity to Charlottesville as well as the many vineyards in the area. Overall - a relaxing stay at an Inn that we can easily recommend to others.

Rooms & Rates

Dogwood (Attic Suite)

The entire attic floor of the Federalist house. Peaked ceiling, clawfoot soaking tub and handheld shower, separate marble tile shower, and a charming king round bed add to the peaceful sweetness of this room. Truly private, the Dogwood is accessed by it's own tall staircase and has 4 tiny windows on either end that look out into the dogwood branches. Pretty in any season - the leaves in fall turn a vibrant red.

  • Maximum Capacity: 2
  • Bathroom Private Bath
  • Beds 1 King

Nightly Rate: $209 - $269

Cottage Suite

The Cottage Suite is the right side of our woodland cottage. With a private sitting area and deck overlooking the back woods, the only sounds you are likely to hear are the birds.

Bright and sunny yellow, with a beautiful queen bed. An antique clawfoot tub and handheld shower invite a long soak...in front of the fireplace in fall and winter. Views of the side azalea garden and the front VA Pinoit Noir vineyard are a pleasant way to watch the sun go down.

About the innkeepers

Nancy & Cynthia have always loved cooking, and owned a small restaurant and coffee house prior to opening High Meadows. It's the best job we've ever had - though just about every job before this has led us to this...Cynthia worked for Anichini (luxury linens) learning all about sheets and bedding in Vermont, Nancy owned a furniture store, Cynthia's art degree and interior design experience has helped make High Meadows the fun, funky place it is.
