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.

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!

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.

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.

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.
