This inn is conveniently located just north of Charlottesville. It's perfectly situated...not far but just beyond the hustle and bustle. It's minutes to downtown and wineries alike. The rooms are comfortably appointed. Terri and Jim are charming hosts who've thought of everything for their gusts comforts. A welcoming glass of wine in iggy's Pub, a delicious fruit and cheese platter... More

My husband and I chose to spend a night at Silver Thatch Inn in celebration of our 25 year anniversary. After a day of visiting wineries, we arrived at the Inn and were greeted by both Jim and Terri. We were shown to our room, the John Tyler, which is beautifully decorated and very cozy, and then we returned to... More

Jim and Terri are the best host/hostess in the bed and breakfast business! The Inn is always in immaculate condition and their warm welcome always puts you right at ease! My husband and I have been coming for over 12 years and always look forward to our weekends away with pleasure! They are the best kept secret in Charlottesville!

We stayed for 6 nights and had a very pleasant, restful stay. The owners Jim & Terri Petrovits were excellent hosts, with great breakfast options to suit my husbands diet restrictions without placing those same restrictions on my choices. Jim and terri are both excellent cooks so the standard of breakfast fare is exceptional. The Inn is steeped in history... More

We were looking for a place to stay for a few restful days after dealing with family business. The quiet neighborhood setting and the attention of the owners were just what we wanted. Breakfast is wonderful. We took advantage of their winter special for two nights. Since we were there to relax and go to Monticello, not to UVA campus... More

My husband and I have been to The Silver Thatch Inn so many times that we've become friends with the owners, Jim and Terri Petrovits. Obviously, we love staying here.

We enjoyed a nice evening in the James Madison room! It was clean, charming, and comfortable. Fireplace was a nice touch. Bathroom was nice and shower pressure was great! Much nicer than staying in one of the chain hotels closer to Charlottesville, but not a luxurious stay and a bit removed from UVA and downtown Charlottesville. (Didn't know there was... More

The Silver Thatch Inn is a very nice facility with friendly and attentive inn keepers, Terry and Jim. While we had some thoughts on where we would be going, Terry helped us refine our plan. Breakfasts were wonderful. The location is also convenient to numerous activities in the Charlottesville area.

Charming bed and breakfast ..... Oh really fabulous breakfasts! Jim and Terry are great hosts, friendly and make you feel so welcome. We enjoyed the Madison Room, cozy with a fireplace and sitting area. They have a small tavern to enjoy drinks before a night on the town. Good location for visiting wineries and downtown area.

As wings were added in 1812 and 1937, the Inn served as a boys’ school, a tobacco plantation, and a melon farm, and home to BFD Runk, dean of men at UVA. Silver Thatch Inn offers 7 comfortable, well-appointed guest rooms, with the community pool available close by.Let us assist with dinner reservations, directions and information for Jefferson's Monticello, the University of Virginia, Monroe's Ashlawn-Highland, Monticello Wine Trail and Brew Ridge Trail to sample Virginia's award winning wines and artisan brews and hard ciders.
