We have enjoyed quite a few B&Bs in VA, but this one is at the top. The room we stayed in was beautifully decorated and extremely comfortable. The architecture and décor are an interesting blend of rustic and formal that works well in the setting. There is a wonderful long view of mountains from the great room and breakfast areas. We visited in the winter, so Charles had a wood fire in the great room during the day. The breakfast was incredible. There is a choice of three juices, coffee, hot chocolate, and teas. Dry cereal is an option, but save the carbs for the fresh made loaf of sweet bread they give to each couple. An artfully arranged plate of sliced fruits is given to each guest as you make a choice between 3 egg dishes and 2 meats. The breads and egg choices change daily. There are three choices for seating if you want "space", but we enjoyed pleasant and intelligent conversation both mornings with other guests. I can't guarantee the quality of breakfast conversation, but 2 out of 2 wasn't bad. Please get directions from the hosts. GPS and map quest were worthless. Map quest took us within 1/2 mile and had us turn left instead of right. Ouch. We took the long way, arriving after dark with a moving trailer. After a moment of confusion, they did some quick thinking and found a place to leave the trailer. Parking is generous, but not designed for trailers. Charlottesville has a great assortment of sites and dining. There is a drive to the middle of town, but the Inn's location makes it more than worth it. Did I mention the breakfast?
