Back to DC for a 50th HS reunion, we needed a one night stay on the way. We found the Lafayette Inn on line and took a chance. Good choice! Had the George Washington suite. Looked like George and Martha had just left the day previous to our arrival. Very comfortable and the staff very accommodating. Had breakfast in the... More

The Lafayette Inn and Restaurant is the place to stay when visiting the Charlottesville area. We went for a long weekend to celebrate our anniversary. We stayed in Dicey's cottage and experienced the incredible Chef's tasting with wine parings. We enjoyed the Inn's breakfast each morning. Thank you Alan and Kaye for being incredible hosts. We really felt that you... More

We have loved the tasting menu experience before (our anniversary), but loved it even more staying for two nights this year. Once we were able to book Dicey's cottage we decided to take advantage of an extra day to explore Standardsville. So fun! Don't miss Early Mountain. The staff was helpful and accommodating. Alan and Kaye are the best hosts!... More

I originally booked a smaller room for my husband and I for the night, but last minute took my mom and 9 month old. Upon check in we were escorted to an upgraded room and quite pleased at the space/decor. The service at dinner was friendly, the food delicious (try the french toast!!), and the owners warm and pleasant. Looking... More

Lafayette Inn is really well furnished and generally in great condition. Breakfast would be as good as any B/B anywhere and far better than nearly all as we see it. Restaurant has limited days of operation but when open the food is really top notch and comparible to fine dining restaurants.

We love staying at the Lafayette Inn when ever we are in the Charlottesville area. Short drive to hiking and the views of Sky Line Drive or the fun, food and culture in town. The Inn is well appointed and very comfortable. The staff is fabulous and the food is outstanding. Oh, and the price point was on par with... More

A truly charming inn that's blended history with comfort and a VERY friendly, accommodating staff with a first-rate kitchen and dining experience! The 10-course tasting menu dinner was truly delectable through every course and the pairings were perfectly matched. Brunch was very well prepared as well and a delicious end to the weekend. Great experience through and through with accommodations... More

When travelling, I'm on the outlook for places with a history and an atmosphere of 'home'. This is one of the best choices I have made. The room I stayed in ('Wilson') had a wonderful atmosphere, I sensed that someone really cares. It's clean, and has good facilities. I would not call it luxury in the normal sense, but for... More

We wanted to visit James Madison's Montpelier and chose the nearby Lafayette Inn for our overnight stay, primarily because they are one of the few B&Bs that don't enforce the two-night weekend minimum. This was a solid place to stay, also close enough to C-Ville to where we could go for an evening jaunt. The owners were more than accommodating.... More

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
