I had a great stay here,the town is a bit desolate wich is just what I was looking for however you are close to major shopping. The room was clean and had a very colonial times feel. Definately would stay again.it feels like your in a small apartment as opposed to a hotel.

After seeing the four and a half star reviews of The Lafayette Inn and Restaurant, I was really looking forward to the stay. I wish I could say I agree with that four and a half star review. First the good. The price was reasonable, and the food was great. We ate dinner there and were both very pleased. Scallops and a chicken and pasta dish were both superb. The complimentary breakfast the next morning provided a lot of variety and was also excellent. (The water for the tea was not especially hot, but of minimal concern.) Now the areas where we felt we were in a less than four and a half star accommodation. Upon entry, we were greeted by what would turn out to be several flies. Also, though we called to say we were on our way, the rooms were very cold. A nice touch on the first really cold day of the season would have been to have adjusted the thermostat. More importantly, the unit was not clean. Substantial mildew lined the bottom of the shower and a combination of dust and mildew was found on the bottom of the bathroom door as well. Also, the toilet clogged multiple times (with LiTTle reason to do so). Significant dust could be found under tables and such. The staff was very friendly, and we always look forward to stays at B and Bs. Wish I could give this one a better review.

Alan and Kaye provide wonderful hospitality in this magical, authentic 1840 inn, in close proximity to the Shenandoah NP and other places of interest. Kaye gave us great touring advice which enhanced our stay and we were especially appreciative of their consideration for our last minute change in travel plans and our dietary requests. A gem with a personal touch!

Came out to the Shenandoah area to hike and found this lovely Inn on Expedia. The Lafayette Inn and Restaurant was the perfect place to stop and rest the night. Cutest room and the best food for breakfast. I loved that this place had history on top of technology. I hope to come back sometime. I recommend this place for anyone looking to get away and relax near Shenandoah, but it’s still within a short drive to Charlottesville.

We had a very enjoyable stay here. We stayed in the Washington Suite which is the only one on the ground floor. It has a separate sitting room. The furnishings are eclectic and “used” rather than antique, but this is fine with us – they fitted the period theme well enough, and any perceived shortcomings should be balanced against the price; too many genuinely antebellum B&Bs charge hundreds of dollars per night. Hot water pressure and temperature were ample. The breakfast was good. Our only precautionary note is, we do wonder how well the AC would cope with a really hot day / evening. On a less challenging stay temperature-wise, the bedroom was just a tad on the warm side. Warning: Go here to decompress and unplug. To call the wifi spotty is being generous and even the cell coverage can be slow. Not a problem for us, it was just what we wanted. BTW the restaurant is also very good, see our separate review.
