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.

My husband and I had a few days between a business conference in Philadelphia and a family wedding in Washington DC so we decided to make a road trip to see five major gardens in a short amount of time. This meant we were in Charlottesville much too short a time to fully enjoy all the Inn at Monticello has to offer -- but what we found there has us convinced to return. Hosts Carolyn and Bob are outstanding! The welcome extended, information provided, sumptuous breakfast served were all beyond expectations. The historic home is well cared for and comfortable. Our first floor room -- the Jefferson -- was an added bonus for my aging husband. The Inn is very close to Monticello making our visit there truly easy. On the way, we passed an apple orchard Carolyn mentioned over breakfast. Our hosts make a great effort to use locally grown produce and the apple muffins were made from the produce of this orchard. Bob and Carolyn truly love their community. They were able to provide information on a garden we'd just learned about, but were unable to visit given our time constraints. Thus the decision to return some day and spend more time. This is a big deal for my husband who usually prefers hotels to B&Bs.

When my daughter and I decided to visit Monticello, I picked the Inn for our sleeping arrangements and she went online to find restaurants in the area that had good reviews. We had all our meals except breakfast at restaurants she picked. Driving back home she said, "You know the best food we had was breakfast at the Inn. It was fantastic!" So, in addition to being convenient to Monticello and the historic section of Charlottesville, the Inn at Monticello won "best restaurant" also.

One of the best B&B's that we have stayed in. Well appointed, friendly staff, great location, and good food. Would stay here again and will definately recommend it to anyone looking for a place to stay.

We had a great time in Charlottesville at the Inn at Monticello. The location was perfect for the town and Monticello. We stayed two nites. One nite in a room in the Inn and one nite in the cottage. Both were great. The breakfasts from Jenny were great. Jenny got us tix for Monticello at a good time. We had great conversations with the other guests at breakfast and in the afternoon and evenings. We had one guest who was a Jefferson scholar that made the conversations interesting. House and gardens are beautiful. Don't know if I'll be in Charlottesville again, but if we are, definitely going to try and book the Inn.

We stayed at the Inn during our daughter's Parents Formal weekend so we were at the mercy of her schedule and didn't have any time to spend getting to know the other guests. We also did not eat breakfast, so I can't really rate the dining experience but the cookies and cake were amazing so I can only assume breakfast was too. The Inn is just beautiful. You won't be disappointed. We would definitely stay again.
