We stayed one night at Prospect Hill Plantation last week. We had a wonderful experience. We agree with a recent review that if you are looking for a resort atmosphere with high end technology and constant attention that Prospect Hill may not be your best choice. The Inn is located in a rural setting and includes a historic manor house... More

We stayed in the groom's quarters 4th of July weekend. The service was exceptional, with breakfast brought to our room. The property has a rich history and beautiful grounds that we were able to walk around. It's about 20 minutes or so from Charlottesville, but we were still able to visit the town each day and take advantage of the... More

Situated 20 minutes or so outside Charlottesville, Prospect Hill is a good place to stop if you wish to discover that city and the Blue Ridge Mountains beyond. We received a warm welcome from the owner and given the tour of the main building. Accommodation is in the out buildings that once housed the plantation slaves and workers - some... More

What a stay!!! From Rocky (Black Lab) to the inn staff, all were warm and welcoming. Doc was a gracious host, the chef was fabulous, the grounds were beautiful, even the weather was delightful. We enjoyed every aspect of our stay and have already recommended this Inn to friends. I hope that we are able to return soon.

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
