Stayed one evening, with the wine-pairing dinner option. Alan and Kaye were gracious, welcoming and outgoing. The inn itself is well maintained, clean and comfortable. We had the Tyler Room, a very spacious second-floor suite with queen beds, full bath (and tub), refrigerator, Keurig coffee. While the inn doesn’t aim for high luxury, it is comfortable and welcoming. The 10-course... More

Robert & Amy Excellent getaway for the weekend. Have never been much on B&B in the past, but will certainly revisit the Lafayette Inn and look for others in the future. Staff was excellent, food incredible, and Chef Alan really made the dinner most enjoyable with the 10 course dinner and paring. If your looking for something special, don't pass... More

Amazed at the quaintness of this Inn. Don't let looks deceive you the Lafayette Inn is Charming. The town of Stanardsville is tiny and this is at the heart. Ambience is a 5.0. Food is a 5.0. Service is a 5.0. The Inn is old....if you can't stand a squeaky floor or crooked door this isn't for you. If you... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Lafayette Inn. We travel to the Charlottesville area every year and try to find a new B&B each trip. The Lafayette Inn was special not only for it's history but also because of the unique wine/dinner tasting. The 10 course dinner provided a tasting of many of the menu items with a wine... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and meals at the Lafayette Inn. Alan was especially welcoming and hospitable. The Jefferson room was pleasant, charming, and comfortable. The 10 course dinner with wine pairing was exceptional. Chef Alan did a great job describing each course, identifying the wine, and explaining the reason for the pairing. His relaxed demeanor helped make our stay... More

We have had better frozen dinner meals. The one dot is for the salad. Beyond that the meat was tough and over salted. The potatoes were lumpy and the string beans were overcooked and stringy. The price for this disappointment was outrageous. They must have paid someone to give them any award, or it was a different chef. And lastly... More

We had such a wonderful weekend at this beautiful, quaint Inn celebrating my Dad's 83rd birthday! We stayed in Dicey's Cottage and the Tyler room and both were absolutely perfect! Of course the restaurant service and meals were the best!!! From the full breakfast to the delicious chef's creations paired with wonderful wines at dinner - we could not have... More

Apologies for the late review! On Sunday 3/16/14 my husband & I stayed overnight in the Monroe Room and participated in the 10 course chef’s tasting with wine pairing. We used a voucher we bought from Living Social. Making the reservation was easy and we communicated with Chef Alan via email for confirmation, etc. Initially we were worried about not... More
