A charming country manor house built in the mid-1800's, the Inn at Monticello sits nestled in the valley at the base of Thomas Jefferson's own Monticello Mountain. The Inn is situated on five beautifully landscaped acres, close to Charlottesville's historic downtown, but retains the feeling of the peaceful countryside. Guests can rest on the shaded front porch and watch the birds and deer frolic on the manicured lawn, or stroll along the brook that passes through the property. Many guests gather in the afternoon for a glass of Virginia wine before heading out to dine at one of many fine Charlottesville area restaurants.

Great innkeepers and excellent breakfast! Location is a few miles from Monticello and Ash Lawn- you can not get accommodations closer to these sites. About 3 miles to UVA and the downtown outdoor mall, which is very quaint and full of dining and shopping option. The rooms on the bottom floor have a private deck. Our shower was wonderful and the high thread count sheets were an unexpected treat. Grounds are lush with plantings and the owners have chickens that meander around the property. Lovely guests congregate for wine in the evenings and breakfast in the morning. Private time may be spent on the front porch or away from the house in the front yard there are several seating areas. Innkeepers give all guests great advice on restaurants to visit according to your desires your desires in tastes and costs. Very professionally run and efficient operation!

A comfortable inn with an ideal location. Breakfasts were below what we have experienced. Quantity of food was fine but not the caliber of "gourmet" breakfasts

A lovely house on beautiful property. Our room was very attractive and comfortable. We felt welcomed from the moment we stepped through the front door. Our breakfast was very good, and enjoyed meeting and talking with the other guests over breakfast. Great location, close to Monticello, Michie Tavern, Charlottesville and the Blue Ridge Parkway, among other locations.

Whether you come to Charlottesville for the history, the wine tours, or a romantic getaway, the Inn at Monticello is a perfect destination. Delicious breakfasts. Wine poured at the appropriate hour. Cookies at bedtime. The rooms are beautiful and hosts, Carolyn and Bob, are experts at Virginia hospitality!

We had a delightful two days at The Inn At Monticello. The hosts were a pleasure to meet and talk to. They serve wine and cheese at five pm, when they light a fire in the fireplace and invite guests to relax.

My wife and I wanted to visit Jefferson's home and found the inn's location—almost at the beginning of the Jefferson Parkway leading to Monticello—too enticing to pass up. But as a bonus, the inn is everything described on its website—elegant, comfortable, “fine food and great company”—what you see is what you get—a most enjoyable experience! Don’t pass up the afternoon/evening beverage and cookies and chatting with other guests. Many thanks to Bob and Carolyn for their warm hospitality.

There were 3 in our party and we each had our own bedroom. The bedrooms and baths were spic and span. My bed was wonderful. I don't know what sheets were on it, but I believe they were the best I've ever slept on. The hosts were welcoming and so helpful, offering suggestions for dinner (which we used and the food was great). We had a wonderful breakfast with a group of guests that included international representation, so the conversation was very interesting. I don't hesitate to recommend this B&B.

Overall the Inn at Monticello exceeded our expectations. Our hosts Bob and Carolyn were gracious. The breakfast each morning was beautifully prepared, and our fellow guests were friendly and outgoing. Charlottesville is a great destination. We came here to visit Monticello, but discovered so much more. Great restaurants, wonderful ambiance; Charlottesville has got it going on. The stay at the Inn at Monticello was the icing on the cake. s

If you are going to Charlottesville or Monticello, I highly recommend The Inn at Monticello. Our room was delightful with an updated bath. The hosts were friendly and very helpful guides to the area. The complimentary glass of wine in the late afternoon helped erase tension of the drive. Breakfast was superb with an outstanding "signature" coffee served. We will definitely return and recommend to our friends!

The Inn at Monticello is so easy to find...just one mile from the intersection of Interstate 64 and State Route 20. Exit freeway at exit 121 and proceed south for 3/4 mile. When road changes from four to two lanes prepare for righthand turn at Inn at Monticello sign...look for the American Flag. From Washington DC, I66 to Rt.29, 29 to I64, I64 to Rt.20. ******* GPS will often take you past our driveway. If you end up in a nice condo development. Come out left and go 1/4 mile to find us on the left.
