“Restful B&B type of get away”
Reviewed June 13, 2011

We were visiting Monticello, so chose to stay here rather than in Charlottesville as a unique get away. It was a bit of a drive -- south from Charlottesville, past Scottsville -- maybe 20 miles total. Nice, scenic drive.

It has a Bed and Breakfast type of feel since it's owned and run by an individual rather than a corporation. The owner is very nice and friendly. It has a public area with big screen TV, lots of DVDs to choose from, as well as a breakfast bar/eating area. There is also seating on the deck and a hot tub. There is a workout room with kicking and punching bags and mats. I can't recall if there are any treadmills or eliptical trainers. Rooms on one side look out onto the river valley, which is quite nice. There is a wooden stairway that leads down to the river. There is river tubing and canoe rental near by.

The room (at least ours) was kind of small. Two double beds, desk, dresser and fridge didn't leave much room for suitcases, but the benefit of the views outweighed that. The room had a smaller, older style TV.

We enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to others.

We were looking for the perfect secluded getaway and hit the jackpot! The location and view are one-of-a-kind, perched on a cliff over the James River. We couldn't tear our eyes away from the stunning vistas, JRI's most prominent feature. However, the facilities are great, the rooms are large and comfortable, the great room and rec rooms are huge, the multi-tiered decks over-look the water... I could go on and on. But the jewel is Walt, the owner. He provides an unpretentious, laid -back atmosphere that makes you feel at home from the first step. He's a charmer and out to make your stay the best you've had anywhere. It worked! After one stay we decided to make it a tradition. (Note, this is not a B&B. Walt provides a great continental breakfast, but don't come expecting eggs and champagne every morning.)
