My son (UVA student) and daughter both had Spring Break at the same time, so we planned a get together and the Inn at Monticello was an excellent choice. The location is close to Charlottesville (10 mins to downtown), Monticello (3 mile walk through the woods) and Ash Lawn Highland (James Monroe's estate, about 3 miles from Monticello). It also provided a base for a day trip through the Virginia countryside to Appomattox (site of Lee's surrender to Grant) and Poplar Forest (Jefferson's country retreat near Lynchburg - well worth visiting). Bob and Carolyn were excellent hosts providing good conversation, excellent breakfasts and late night cookies and tea. When we got 5 inches of snow dumped on us the night before departure, Bob even cleaned the snow from our car and made sure the driveway could be negotiated.
All in all, a wonderful stay and we will be back!More
