this was our 27th anniversary and we enjoyed it. Hubby had the Cajun shrimp pasta and he said it was good and looked good. I had the crab cakes they were not to my taste but all Chefs are different. This town is small and not sure if I would do this again it was just a special day for... More

The Inn does not look overly inviting from the outside, but is nicely kept on the inside. The room was ready for us when we arrived, clean, and my wife loved it! The staff was very friendly and made our short experience there relaxing. I would highly recommend this Inn to any of my friends traveling to the area.

Diceys cottage has bedroom up and a big living room down so lots of space there. Lived in the area much of my life and my first visit was a quick anniversary getaway with... More

Stumbled on Lafayette Inn after many years of visiting the area. After an excellent breakfast several months ago, opted for the Chef's Tasting Dinner. Food and wine pairings were varied and excellent, including both California and Virginia wines. Early courses (apps and salads) were excellent, as were the later seafood, chicken and pork. The "teaser" and Roasted corn, tomato and... More

We had a party at the Lafayette Inn with the 10 course dinner and it was wonderful. The food was quite good, appetizers yummy, and the wine pairings great. The restaurant had a large and excellent wine selection. The accommodations were unique and lovely. And last, but definitely not least, the innkeeper Alan was marvelous, very helpful, and accommodating. Great... More

My wife and I returned to Stanardsville after eloping there last year. We stated two nights at The Lafayette and enjoyed the hospitality of Alan and Kaye and exploring the area. We also enjoyed the 10 course tasting menu in the restaurant on our last night. Alan and his wait staff were excellent as were the dishes and wine parings.... More

On 7/25/2015, I stayed by myself in the Jefferson Room. I traveled to the area due to a wedding being held on Lydia Mountain. Stanardsville is remote, calm, and stunning. The inn itself has amazing views from the wrap around porch on both levels. I found the staff to be hard working, kind, and genuine. My room had a nice... More

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
