We recommend highly The Inn at Monticello, starting with the location, which is quiet but close to everything. We used nearby Interstate 64 to travel west and east in minutes to major sites and family gatherings, and Va. Route 20 north and south, to get in and out of the downtown area of Charlottesville and visit local wineries with ease. We stayed in the separate cottage and enjoyed the great shower and the canopied bed. All very comfortable and all very clean. Despite the heat and humidity outside, the A.C. and fans in the cottage kept the room temperature just right. We also appreciated the in-room refrigerator and the coffee machine with easy-to-prepare and good tasting coffee packets. The fresh cream left for us each day was a treat, and we took advantage of the snacks left for us also. "Jenny" of the staff greeted us warmly when we arrived, and she prepared truly excellent breakfasts both days we were there. High quality food, carefully prepared, and served with quiet style. There were a total of 5 couples at breakfast each morning in the dining room, sharing experiences from the previous day, and plans for the current day.
Checking out was an effortless breeze. Jenny's gracious charm will be a lasting memory. The owners have created and maintain beautiful grounds and flower beds, which we enjoyed exploring on foot. This is the place to which we plan to return when we are in Charlottesville.
Thank you for making our stay so very pleasant!
