Completely obsessed!

5 on November 17, 2014

I bought my stay from a deal on Living Social for a mini getaway for myself. The pictures and description won me over, and I couldn't be more happy with my decision to stay at High Meadows! Everything about it there is wonderful. The women are so friendly, the rooms are amazing, breakfast was delicious, and the entire place was just so warm, cozy, and welcoming. I could go on for days! I'm recommending it to all my friends and can't wait to back myself! Two thumbs up, five gold stars, and a million thanks for my wonderful stay!


I love this place and will be back!

3rd Visit to High Meadows

4.8 on November 12, 2014

High Meadows is a wonderful getaway. It's cozy and quaint with lots of southern charm. The perfect place for a romantic adventure or a girlfriends weekend. The breakfast is spectacular! Nancy, the Innkeeper, has a wealth of information regarding local sightseeing highlights. She's is always up for an interesting chat. As an added bonus Nancy's son has a wonderful restaurant in Scottsville The Smokehouse Grille that you have to visit!


A lovely fall getaway

4.2 on November 06, 2014

My husband and I decided on High Meadows Vineyard Inn for a getaway from DC. It was the perfect time of year to visit wineries and see the leaves change. I highly recommend the wine package for a private tour through 4 different wineries. Ours included Blenheim, First Colony, Trump, but I can't recall the name of the 4th offhand. We stayed in the Peony room, which was lovely. There is a fireplace and a 2 person jacuzzi tub. It's worth noting that there is ONLY a tub (no shower) - and while this surprised us, it was kind of fun to switch gears for a few days. The king size bed (two twins pushed together) was very comfortable. It's the type of room where you don't mind hanging out and reading in bed for a few hours. Nancy put out wine in the evening, which I thought was a nice touch. She was quick to offer advice on where to go in town. Scottsville is small, but there are a few gems, including her son's restaurant The Smokehouse Grill. I would (and have) recommended this place to a friend!


Stay in October

4.2 on October 29, 2014

We stayed in the Cottage Room. Very cute room with a bath. Private entrance, separate from the house. Keep in mind, you enter a small foyer and to the right is the Cottage Suite and to the left is the Cottage Room. Also, no TVs...but don't need them because it's so pretty here! Beautiful, country grounds and loved the parlor and sunroom! The outdoor cats are so, so sweet! Nancy was a wonderful hostess! Very nice! We will definitely try to come back! Thank you!


Delightful Experience at High Meadows

4.2 on October 14, 2014

Our stay at High Meadows was a delight. We stayed in the cottage which was nicely appointed, quiet and serene. The breakfast was wonderful. Nancy, the innkeeper, regaled us at breakfast with a history about the property and stories of the surrounding area which in itself is beautiful. I would definitely recommend High Meadows Vineyard Inn for those looking for a peaceful, friendly setting close enough to Charlottesville to enjoy it's attractions yet far enough away to avoid it's bustle.


Our favorite Bed and Breakfast

5 on October 14, 2014

We have stayed in many bed and breakfasts, but this was by far our favorite. The main house is gorgeous, clean clean clean, and plenty to look at and see. Owners were very charming, interesting and perfectly friendly. Food was absolutely delicious. We stayed in the cottage, renting both rooms and just adored them - super super warm and friendly, comfortable and plenty of space and amenities. In the evening, we sat out with our friends in the gazebo and enjoyed some wine and beer we had purchased at the wineries and breweries....perfect perfect ending to the day. It was a great birthday trip and we look forward to staying at High Meadows again!


Weekend Getaway

5 on October 13, 2014

Our weekend at the High Meadows Vineyard Inn could not have been more perfect. The bed was super comfy, the gourmet food was amazing and the friendly staff (including the outdoor cats) can't be measured. It is the BEST!


lovely

This was a get-a-way for a few days for my husband and myself. We started with 2 nights here and it was a perfect start. Nancy was sweet, helpful with planning our days, which made a huge difference for us since we came in from Michigan., and her pride in the inn was evident.


Evening at the Willow room

5 on October 09, 2014

Thank you so much Nancy and family for a wonderful stay at your Inn. The house is so very warm, colorful, and light. The Willow room was full of coziness and atmosphere. The bed was the best ever. It was difficult getting up in the morning, but could smell breakfast cooking, so we just had to get ready and get down to our great breakfast. Fantastic job, a10+. Thank you so much. Mo and Bob

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.
