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

The room was very nice although a bit "drafty" since it was one of the windiest, coldest nights in years. Accommodations were wonderful and the complimentary champagne was a nice addition to the room. The dinner was unbelievable; food was delicious and the service amazing. We were not hurried from one course to the next; the server allowed plenty of... More

We stayed here to celebrate a birthday dinner for a friend who had turned 50. The Pyles took great care of us and the tasting dinner was one of the top 10 meals of my life. The pairings were amazing!! The Tyler room was perfect to share with a friend and the Inn's charm was accented throughout the hotel. The... More

We had a wonderful evening last night at the Lafayette Inn. Stayed in the Monroe room and enjoyed the Chef's tasting menu. Wow! I simply can't overstate how wonderful everything was during our getaway. -We stayed last night in unusually cold (2 degrees) weather for Virginia. My fears about a cold, sterile room were immediately dispelled. Alan greeted us and... More

We used a LivingSocial deal for a night's stay, 10 course dinner and breakfast. Before we arrived, we added another night so we could spend some time in Charlottesville the second day and are glad we did. The 10 course dinner was divine - the food was amazing and the chef was very informative about the dishes and the wines... More
