About

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

Great Place!

4.8 on August 26, 2014

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 comfy inn

4.4 on August 25, 2014

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!

Great B&B

4.0 on August 13, 2014

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.


good times

4.4 on August 11, 2014

The inn was wonderful. A nice retreat at the end of a day of visiting wineries. Nancy was quite accommodating and made us feel at home.


Nice Get-away

3.8 on August 10, 2014

This was a nice location for a quick 2-day get-away. Enjoyed the stay and visited several wineries nearby.


A Lovely Inn

4.8 on August 10, 2014

A lovely quaint historic place to stay close to the center of town of Scottsville and city of Charlottesville. Easily booked everything online and received answers to questions asap. My husband and I stayed in the Peony room, a gorgeous "peachy" room with a jet spa tub. We were in the first room as soon as you enter the Inn and it was very quiet and serene. No tv/dvd player; however we had our "tablets" wifi was great! Bed was very comfortable; however very high for me. Would suggest having a step stool available for us short people. Only other accessory would be a fan (stand up would be fine) as the room was rather warm at night. My favorite place was the front porch with a wonderful porch swing to sit and read and visit. Although there were many options on the grounds for visiting and relaxing. Our hostess, Nancy is a classy, lovely lady with much knowledge of the surrounding areas; especially the historic areas and the wineries! We had dinner in the main area of Scottsville at her son's restaurant which was outstanding! Best BBQ we have ever had! We definitely will be back for a visit.


Beautifully renovated historic home in VA wine country

4.6 on August 07, 2014

Stayed two nights in the "Robin's Nest." Wonderful breakfast, laid back atmosphere, beautiful grounds (lilies were done, but late summer foliage was very nice). Nancy was a wonderful host and eager to help us decide on activities for the day and provided good maps to help our day travels. Loved the colorful take on a historic home (actually two different homes). Thank you for such a pleasant stay, we hope to visit again!


Wonderful B&B

4.8 on August 03, 2014

This was the first time my husband and I visited High Meadows and we had a wonderful time! Nancy was kind and welcoming, the breakfasts were delicious, our room was spectacular, and the grounds were absolutely charming. We will definitely be coming back!


A Gem in the Charlottesville Suburbs

4.4 on July 29, 2014

We spent a delightful two nights at High Meadows in July 2014. The main building is comprised of the original section built in the early 1800s and the newer part constructed in the late 1800s. We stayed in a second floor room in the newer section. The weather was torridly hot and we were concerned that our second floor Willow room would be stuffy, but it was actually very, very comfortable thanks to the A/C system. Breakfasts were delicious. Innkeeper Nancy welcomes all the guests and orients them to the local attractions in the grater Charlottesville area. Be sure to visit the little town of Scottsville and, if you are staying over a weekend, try the Hatton Ferry five miles west, which is only remaining pole operated car ferry in the country. This inn is about a 25 minute drive from downtown Charlottesville and all its attractions. We had a delightful time and look forward to revisiting it in the near future.
