“Welcoming and Delightful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2010

I was recently in town for a wedding with a lot of friends. The Inn was recommended by the wedding couple. Coming from NYC, it was exactly what I wanted--a large suite, great service, a nice restaurant, a convenient location and tons of charm. The Innkeepers made me feel very welcomed--from the champagne and chocolates upon arrival, tips on where to buy wine, a knock at my door by the Innkeeper to let me know my friends had arrived, serving us dinner late (although they were closing), arranging for a brunch for 18 following the wedding--it was a great getaway. I only wish I could have stayed longer!

“Folks couldn't be more friendly and helpful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2010

Breakfast, brunch, and dinner, the meals were fantastic. The waitstaff was accommodating to the max, keeping the kitchen open for some late-arriving friends, which was a kindness after a horrendous journey getting there (Friday holiday traffic doubled the trip time from the DC area). Sharon and her niece Sherrie were knowledgeable and happy to share their knowledge about the menu, the inn, and the area and happy to find answers to questions they didn't know for gluten-intolorant members of our party.
Sherrie and the staff handled brunch for 15 with only minor hiccups and much good food. The Lafayette Inn is a great place to eat and sleep.

“Takes you back in time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2010

The innkeepers are warm & welcoming! The house is really neat built in 1840 it does take you back in time. Nothing like going to sleep on a crisp night with the fireplace going. The food is outstanding & they have a very nice wine selection. We started our Sunday with a full breakfast menu (included) & a Bloody Mary, one of the best I've tasted.

“wonderful historical setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2010

This is the second trip we made to the Lafayette Inn. We stayed in the Inn and ate at the restaurant both times. It is a wonderful historic building and the owners and staff were very attentive and made us feel very comfortable and welcome.
The area is absolutely beautiful and the setting is so peaceful and relaxing. A wonderful place to stay while touring and tasting at the Central Virginia wineries.
