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.

Monticello Getaway Plus

4.6 on September 14, 2014

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!

Great Anniversary Weekend!!!!

5 on August 21, 2014

We stayed at the Inn last weekend (Friday-Sunday) and stayed in the cottage. The owners and staff were very helpful and couldn't be nicer. The breakfasts were delicious and the atmosphere with the other guests couldn't be more enjoyable. We enjoyed having coffee on the porch before breakfast was served and we were offered wine in the early afternoon along with cookies. The warmth of welcome was genuine. A beautiful relaxing setting -- the picture on the website doesn't do it justice. We would definitely stay again.

A Special Place To Spend A Special Occasion

4.6 on August 21, 2014

We chose The Inn At Monticello when we decided to spend our 45th wedding anniversary in Charlottesville. We could not have made a better choice. It is a very charming and comfortable B&B on a beautiful site. Bob and Carolyn, the Innkeepers, were so warm and welcoming. I had spoken to Bob when I made my reservation and he suggested a restaurant for our anniversary dinner and made our reservation for us. Carolyn even printed out directions for us to the Inn where we were having dinner. The Inn At Monticello is beautifully furnished, both the common areas and the bedrooms. We loved having a glass of wine in the afternoon and freshly baked cookies in the evening. Breakfast was different each day and quite good – a great way to start the day. We stayed in the Washington room which has a large bathroom a few feet outside the bedroom. I was a little concerned about that arrangement but it was fine. We even had comfy robes in our room if we wished to use them. We were only there two nights and we hated to leave. Our anniversary weekend could not have been better – even the weather was perfect. We hope to go back to The Inn At Monticello again.

Lovely, quiet setting, five minutes from town

We arrived at around 4:30 pm and were met by Bob, who showed us our room and then offered wine, cheese and crackers. We enjoyed them on the verandah. Our room itself was well appointed, the bed was very comfortable, and the private patio most enjoyable. The only comment I would have is a lack of storage space in our bathroom. Breakfast, served to all guests at the same time, was gourmet quality and encouraged conversation. All in all, a great stay.

After a delightful day at Monticello, it was wonderful to drive a short distance and encounter like-minded travelers in a clean, relaxed atmosphere. The host met us at the door, gave us a brief history, showed us to our room then asked if we would like a glass of wine. Wine in hand, he expertly directed us to several restaurants nearby and said the door would be open until the last traveler returned. It was exactly the experience we had hoped for. Breakfast was tasty but not overdone. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this B&B to others!!
