The Inn At Monticello

Highway 20 south, 1188 Scottsville Rd. , Charlottesville, VA 22902 USA (Show map)


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.

Our stay at the inn was perfection, largely due to the superbly tasteful and discerning eye of our highly educated hosts...from the sun-bleached, white crisp curtains in our bathroom, to the spacious and beautifully appointed guest rooms, inviting art and books within reach wherever we plopped, and the late but delightful crowing of the cock as he led his hens out to scratch for tasty worms in the morning, nothing disappointed. Add to that our hosts steered us to a French restaurant (we wanted to keep going with the American presidents' francaphone leanings) where we quite simply may have had one of the best meals of our life! Behind this kind of experience is the hard work of Bob and Caroline, who lovingly think of every detail. We are deeply appreciative!

We needed to relax, and we did!

The Inn at Monticello was an excellent place to stay to fully enjoy all that the Charlottesville area has to offer. It is conveniently located near historical attractions, restaurants, and wineries. The Inn itself is very comfortable and well appointed. The bed was comfortable and the room had all the comforts we wanted. The porches outside each room were very private and relaxing. Carolyn and Bob were excellent hosts. They are very familiar with the area, and they made many good suggestions on how to get the most out of our visit. We highly recommend them.

Fantastic stay

We spent a wonderful two days in Charlottesville, our trip being very much enhanced by our stay at the beautiful Inn at Monticello. It is very well located and Carolyn is a most gracious host. She was very helpful pointing our the sights and suggesting restaurants for the evening. The Inn is perfection: comfortable, beautifully decorated, cozy. And so relaxing! Breakfast was delicious: all home made. Everything at the Inn is very refined. A real treat!

The innkeepers are a very nice, cordial couple who are attentive to their guests. The served a very good breakfast. The room was cozy and very nicely decorated. They even recommended a "Local" restaurant that was obviously a locals hangout with very good food. If you're visiting Montecello or the Charlottesville area we would highly recommend The Inn at Montecello.

Wedding Weekend

Fantastic experience in all regards. Had room for two nights. Used it for bridesmaids to prepare for weeding then for daughter and son-in-law the night after her wedding. Could not have been better. Bob and Carolyn are the nicest folks and very accomodating. Pictures there were beautiful as the home and grounds were very pretty and well kept. We would strongly recommend the Inn.

Perfect Location in Charlottesville

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!

Relaxing weekend

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

Great place to stay

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.

History, Wine, Hospitality

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!
