Vineyards in late summer and early fall are lovely...what a great time to stay with us, take a stroll in a vineyard - mornings are cool, days are getting shorter - the light is great for outdoor dining in the evening! High Meadows is the perfect spot for all your central Virginia activities...orchards, vineyards, breweries - let us plan a great 2 or 3 day itinerary. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places,and a Virginia Historic Landmark,High Meadows is an inviting farmhouse with cozy rooms,modern amenities,and fantastic food. Our Inn is located in the quaint Town of Scottsville, on the banks of the Great Horseshoe Bend of the James River. Monticello, Thomas Jefferson's home, is a mere 16 miles away. A beautifully preserved World Heritage Site, the gardens are in full glory through October...take a tour! Wineries,cideries,breweries and distilleries are located all around us (over 30 within 20 miles of High Meadows Vineyard Inn), and the agricultural network of local farmers who connect directly with our local chefs (and us!) is ahead of the national curve - we count ourselves lucky to have such local bounty and to be a part of the farm-to-table movement. Our High Meadows Vineyard Inn breakfast menu reflects that - featuring local, seasonal recipes, that honor Virginia's southern heritage...and it's included in your stay, of course. High Meadows is a country inn-on 13 acres of woodlands and gardens, including a 2-acre Pinot Noir vineyard, planted in 1984 - though having a rough year right now. The meadows and woods are home to deer, fox, and all sorts of other wildlife-we are on the James River Loop of the Virginia Birding and Wildlife Trail-with birding groups stopping at High Meadows every year for the past 30 years. King size beds, luxurious Anichini linens, great coffee, and space to enjoy yourself - we give a modern twist to traditional B&B hospitality.Stay with us for a perfect homebase to enjoy all that Charlottesville and Central Virginia has
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.
Nightly Rate: $209-$269
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. Painted to envoke a true cottage experience, this room has the space to spread out and enjoy just a night, or several - have dinner in your own room and curl up to relax with a good book.
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.
Nightly Rate: $149-$189
Also on the second floor of the Victorian house, this room has a king bed, a large walk-in shower, and a cozy armchair to settle in with a good book, in front of the fireplace in fall and winter. Pale willow green walls are accented by chartreuse silk curtains and pillows, and luxurious Anichini linens.
Located on the second floor of the Victorian house, this room has an antique king, four-posted bed, a large walk-in shower and is a beautiful pale blue...the color of a robin's egg, as the room name suggests.
This room is on the main level of the Victorian house. With a large bay window, a luxurious king bed, two-person whirlpool tub and fireplace, this is one of our most requested rooms. Many original finishes still exist on doors and trim, including the faux painted slate mantel and window shutters.
Cottage Room...is the left side of our woodland cottage cabin. A king bed, generous stand-up shower and big window looking out into the woods - curl up on the loveseat and watch the birds!

This is the nicest B&B we've stayed in Virginia. Nancy and the staff enjoy the opportunity to makes the guests stay a memorable one. We couldn't have asked for a better time both there and in the surrounding area. We'll be back!

What a lovely place to visit and feel as though you have come "home" the moment you arrive. The staff is wonderful and could not be more helpful and accommodating to us the entire time. A wonderful breakfast is fresh and hearty with just the right touches. There is no TV but there is internet so you can stay in touch if you choose to but a much better option is to explore the grounds and surrounding area to really shut down and enjoy your visit. I'll certainly go back and enjoy more Southern Hospitality

Everything was lovely about High Meadows. We enjoyed the room, the grounds, the area, and most of all the breakfast! Everything was delicious and everyone was so helpful with getting us around the area and where to go.

Cozy and welcoming, this inn occupies a lovely country setting a few minutes from the small town of Scottsville. The innkeeper was a fountain of information and a charming hostess. We will go again if we get a chance!

We stayed in the Dogwood Room. It was nice having so much space. We were fortunate that the weather wasn't too hot. The window air conditioner did a good job.
