We had a friend visit with us for a few days to help with my wife who just got out of the hospital after major surgery. Nice atmosphere and very attentive service (maybe too much). This is a jacket crowd of local movers and shakers and well heeled travelers. Food was excellent but very expensive. Worth it? Only your financial... More

Dear Mike C, First, we hope your wife is making a speedy recovery from surgery. We are delighted you enjoyed the charm of the Old Mill Room with its 180 year old rustic, hand-hewn beams and flooring reclaimed from an abandoned grist mill. Also, it’s always a pleasure to have our guests post about our excellent cuisine. Many of our... More

I will preface that it was a snowy weekend that left the staff short and there were two conferences in the hotel. The person that helped us check, Johnathan, was a consummate pro. The spa services were excellent as was Ashley, the concierge. The patio off of our room was amazing. It was too bad the weather was in the... More

We stayed in a Premier King room (715) over Valentines weekend. I have eaten at here before but never stayed over night. We checked in and made it to our room. It was beautifully decorated and loved the porch with view of the water. (it was freezing/snow/wind so we did not spend tons of time outside) We purchased a Valentines... More

The Boars Head is a Hotel, Spa and Restaurant. The grounds and buildings are wonderfully typical of Virginia hunt country. Have sampled all. I do favor the rooms and the Spa, although the restaurant is quite good, especially for lunch. Every year I ask for Spa gift certificates because is it top notch and conveniently located here in Charlottesville. It's... More

Wife and I went here for Valentines. Front desk was fast and our massages were top of the line. Old Mill room offers high quality meals, and the afternoon tea, coffee and pastry services is a nice touch.

This was our wedding anniversary trip. Lovely physical plant with great linens, wonderful decor. Chocolate covered strawberries in the room and champagne at dinner provided complimentary from the inn. The spa was lovely, everywhere was super clean and well appointed. Now the downsize- first off I reserved a room in the main lodge, I had explained I had a physical... More

My husband and I had never stayed here but we're SO glad we chose it! The hotel staff is super nice and helpful. We loved the room - clean, beautiful historical decor and a super comfy bed and pillows. The room service was prompt and delicious. The grounds are very quaint and you feel more like you are staying in... More

Excellent overall experience, can't wait to go back!!! The spa was very relaxing. Rooms were recently updated and had high end everything, even the tile floor in the bathroom was heated. The character and history of the property was very interesting. Dinner at the Old Mill Room was delicious!

I was here for another tennis weekend. I love the Boar's Head. The rooms are roomy. These are the best beds you will ever sleep in. My tennis partner and I always talk about how we both sleep well when we are at the Boar's Head. I couldn't figure out how to operate the heat in my room. I called... More

Having heard about this property and send several people to enjoy this respite, my wife and I chose this spot to celebrate our 31st. Anniversary. The rooms were luxury throughout and the spa is truly special. The "grill room" for a late dinner was sumptuous and so well served. Every person we encountered provided true world class service.
