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...

My husband and I went back to Prospect Hill despite some reservations from our first, and while we had a fine time, things have unfortunately not improved as we had hoped. The positives: The house, cabins/cottages and grounds are lovely. We stayed in the Boys cabin again and love the rustic feel of the place. We kept a fire going... More

I recently planned a birthday getaway for my husband at Prospect Hill, and it was a dream. Prospect Hill is owned and run by a family, and that feeling of being part of something meaningful permeates your experience at the inn. Prior to arrival, the family was very helpful in my planning surprise dinners. Upon arrival we were told our... More

it was my wife's birthday and were meeting friends to spend the weekend going to vineyards around Charlottesville. Found this plantation on trip advisor and decided to give it a try. Great decision! We stayed in the Carriage House. It was spacious, well appointed and centrally located. Actually all the cottages are pretty centrally located. There are wood burning fireplaces... More

Wonderful and historic, the Prospect Hill Plantation makes for a great getaway but only a short drive from Charlottesville. We stopped on our way back north from florida, and would have liked to stay longer. It truly is historic. Where else can you stay in a 300 year old cottage! We were in the "Overseer's Cottage" built in the 1700's... More
