Almost perfect. The 175 year-old inn is quaint and charming and the staff is wonderful and super accommodating. The food is GREAT and the rooftop happy hour with live music is just perfect. We stayed in Dicey's Cabin, which was the slave quarters for the original mansion. It's just beside the main inn and private. We had a great time.... More

Stayed 1 night in the Monroe room and partook in the 10 course tasting menu with wine. Don't usually like wine but was paired very well with the food and enjoyed it immensely. Will do this again next year for our anniversary very romantic.Loved the food and enjoyed the chef/host/owner.

My husband & I stayed in the Washington Room for 1 night and enjoyed the chef's 10-course tasting menu with wine pairing. A nice touch was the champagne and snacks that were in the room upon our arrival. My husband & I really enjoy good food, and this meal is in the top 5 of the best meals we've ever... More

My wife and I took advantage of a promotion to come down for a chef's dinner that was the best meal I have had in years. Fantastic food with every dish being excellent and all well paired with wines both local and non-local. The host was pleasant, informative, and extremely talented in his knowledge and food preparation.

Spent the night in the Jefferson Room. Cozy and comfy. Had breakfast, lunch and dinner--all very good. Friendly, great service. Terrific food. Welcoming atmosphere in the Inn. The best thing in the little town in the little town of Stanardsville.

We once again had the opportunity to visit The Lafayette Inn and Restaurant to partake in the chef's 10 course wine paring dinner. And once again, they excelled both with the dinner-wine paring as well as their hospitality. All in all, a wonderful visit.

We visited The Lafayette Inn for the Living Social chef tasting special. We were welcomed with warm hospitality, and the Wilson room was quaint and charming. Chef Alan is great. His passion for food and wine is reflected in each offering. Each course was delicious! We will definitely return!

My husband and I came here for dinner and a 1 night stay. The food was amazing. We were with 2 other couples and the chef came out to talk about the food, wine pairings, answer any questions, etc. The morning after, we had a free breakfast which was equally fantastic. The overnight stay was great - comfortable bed, warm,... More

I came with my wife to the LaFayette for the 10-course Food and Wine pairing dinner, and we were blown away. We both love good food and wine, and we had high expectations after reading other favorable reviews. We both have food restrictions (gluten and dairy), so we here also hopeful the chef would be able to accommodate our needs.... More
