Nobody can fault the beautiful setting of this place, just outside of downtown Charlottesville and nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. There is a center pond, surrounded by weeping willows and a walking path. The sleeping rooms are located in a few out buildings, some more modern than others.

Due to a dishonest billing practice we'll never stay there again. I cancelled our 2 rooms ($6,000.00) for Graduation 2015 and I was charged a 10% fee that was never explained. I'm a travel blogger and I've never had this happen with so much notice. It is an unfair & bad faith business practice that others need to know about.

Had a fantastic stay at the boars head. Wonderful room and front desk service, great rooms with modern furnishings but with still retaining the classic Virginia charm. Our room was right by the construction but the sound was minimal and we barely noticed at all. All in all it was a wonderful two days spent there

Room was large and nicely decorated. Bed was very comfy with good pillows and linens. Resort staff were very pleasant and the grounds were beautiful. Only a short drive to University of Virginia and good hiking areas.

Thank you for your TripAdvisor post! We regret you found us to be old and dated. We never want a guest to feel that way about our accommodations which is why we completely renovated all 175 of our guest rooms between December 2011 and April 2012. Much thought and attention to detail was given to each of the final selections.... More

Outstanding staff behind the front desk, restaurants and around the grounds. Very comfortable rooms, everything was perfect. Check-in was quick, friendly and professional. Breakfast was outstanding, both food and service. Enjoyed every minute of my stay here.

This was a great place to stay for our family. We enjoyed the pool area. Good location. It is a quiet property with friendly staff. We would stay again if we were in Charlottesville. The housekeeping staff was excellent.

They made it easy for us to really enjoy UVA orientation. Quick check in, clean rooms and we got an upgrade without asking. Breakfast was great, good dinner and bar. Beautiful setting. Can't say enough about this property. Highly recommended.
