There just are better ways to support historical preservation without Disney-fying the Old South. A disappointment wrapped in faux presentations of the institution of slavery, making sunny what needn't be so painted. Consider such whitewashing of history as the Inn's claim about one cabin: "Originally the sleeping quarters of a loyal slave who would spend four years fighting alongside his... More

This is a gorgeous B&B about 20 minutes drive outside Charlottesville VA. The grounds are large and feature alpacas, horses, chickens, and an excellent dog Rocky. The restaurant, which serves a serious dinner, is of very good quality, although the service was a tad quirky - they could have used an extra waitperson. Our large room in the main house... More

Prospect Hill Plantation is an historic Virginia plantation transformed into a delightful destination B&B popular for newlyweds and all romantics. Away from it all in the Blue Ridge foothills on many beautiful wooded acres surrounded by horse farms, it's only 20-30 minutes from Charlottsville and the University of Virginia, Thomas Jefferson's Monticello, James Madison's Montpelier and numerous quality wineries. We... More

My boyfriend and I spent one night at Prospect Hill and it was wonderful. We stayed in Sanco Pansy's Cottage and it was very romantic. It is the most private cottage on the property and worth the extra money if you want some alone time. The staff made us feel welcome and took care to make sure we were comfortable... More

We stayed here for 2 nights recently. We booked Uncle Guy's House (downstairs) which is one of the out buildings. The room was old, but fairly clean. The king mattress needs refreshing as it is way to soft and lacks support. The tub/shower is cracking and should probably be replaced with a shower stall. We had a one cup Keurig... More

My wife and I had traveled to the area for our daughter's graduation and we wanted to get a bit of a local experience at a former plantation (we live in the Boston area). The web site showed beautiful grounds, beautiful rooms, and an inviting dining area. The price seemed a bit steep (nearly $300 for each room) but I... More

We were here to celebrate the 50th Wedding Anniversary of friends along with 40 or 50 of their other friends. The 1792 plantation was everything you would expect and more (including indoor plumbing.) The host and hostess made sure that not one guest wanted for anything. And dinner was such a delightful surprise we "raved" about it and I am... More

Not only is Prospect Hill a lovely place to stay, it is also a fantastic spot to enjoy an elegant dinner. Although we did not stay overnight at Prospect Hill, ten of us made the easy jaunt from Charlottesville to Louisa for a birthday celebration and we were not disappointed! In a cozy, historic setting - a175-year old dining room... More

New owners - totally revamped and renovated. Negative reviews on this site from time of previous innkeeper. Exceptionally clean - keen attention paid to oft neglected areas. Housekeepers do a sterling job. Innkeepers - delightful and welcoming, relaxed demeanor while focused on providing outstanding service. Truly family-run operation with their teenage children cheerfully attending to guest requests. Buildings and grounds... More

In the stillness of a cold Virginia winter weekday, life at Prospect Hill Plantation Inn slows to a crawl. Snow covers the grounds and guests trickle in. We sat alone in the antique-filled 18th century parlor. No one else was staying in the main house. The non-resident staff had departed for the evening, leaving us with instructions to telephone if...
