A wonderful colonial inn with superior service! The rooms are terrific and the stay in an historic location is a real treat. Breakfast is always fabulous in a fun room with many windows to watch the morning birds. Super stay with super service. Highly recommend and so hope for a return!

Our room was immaculate and cozy, as well as nicely decorated. We were in a cottage next to the main building. Breakfast was excellent, served in a lovely dining room. Would definitely put up here again.

This lovely inn is located about 15 minutes north of the center of Charlottesville. Terry and Jim greeted us warmly and were very helpful throughout our stay. The Jefferson Room, where we stayed, is large and well appointed. Jim and Terry share the cooking duties and breakfast was very good on both mornings we stayed at Silver Thatch. Also, be... More

My daughter and I spent one night in the Jefferson Room during a weekend of visiting wineries and Monticello. It is the largest room at the Inn and was absolutely wonderful. It has a king sized 4 poster bed, 2 wing chairs and a large coffee table situated in front of the working fireplace which had a Duraflame log in... More

I've known the Silver Thatch Inn for over 30 years--going back to the time when it was the Inn and one of the Charlottesville areas few fine dining restaurants. These days, it offers seven lovely rooms for overnight guests and is B & B only. But the Jefferson Room is still evocative of old Virginia, but with updated touches such... More

We spent two nights in a Cottage room. The room, with dark wood, deep green carpeting and maroon painted walls, was spacious, clean and very comfortable but dark. Everything was in good working order, with the exception of the wobbly toilet. We enjoyed complimentary drinks in the cozy tavern and an excellent full breakfast in the dining room of the... More

We very much appreciate your taking the time to write a review for Silver Thatch Inn! The color of the paint in your room, a deep Merlot (yes, it's true), is as close to a true Colonial color the original owners could get. The Washington room is painted a Hunter Green, also in the Colonial fashion. Over the years we... More

My wife and I recently spent 4 nights at the Silver Thatch. The Jefferson room was very nicely appointed and the bed very comfortable. We did not use the fireplace as it was much too warm while we were there, but I imagine it would add a wonderful ambiance to a winter's night stay. Jim and Teri are great hosts... More

My husband and I stayed at this inn for a weekend of antiquing and wineries and were very pleased. The inn keepers were most welcoming and very helpful. The inn has a pub, and we were offered a complimentary beer or glass of wine, which was a nice touch. The breakfasts were wonderful -- very filling and expertly prepared. The... More

This is our go-to place now for over a decade when we come to Charlottesville. It is a wonderful property, and perfectly located off of Rt. 29 and very close to UVA and downtown. Terry and Jim are gracious hosts, and always have a fun and delicious breakfast. Another great stay.
