Welcome to the Inn at Monticello

Our bed and breakfast in Charlottesville, Virginia, carries on a tradition of gracious and personal hospitality on 5 wooded acres, with mature trees shading the house, and a pristine creek running through the stately grounds.

The inn has five guestrooms, all with private baths, and a separate cottage that is often available for guests. Several rooms have fireplaces or private porches. All are decorated with antique or reproduction furniture from the colonial or Victorian eras. In the fall and winter, our living room is a popular spot for our guests to enjoy a glass of wine by the hearth of our wood-burning fireplace. In the spring and summer, the front porch and lawn are great places to watch the birds, bunnies, woodchucks and deer.

Breakfast at the Inn at Monticello brings fine food together with great company. We serve a full gourmet breakfast each morning, with guests seated like family around the dining table. We offer beverages in the afternoon, and our famous cookies and other sweets in the evening.

Although guests can stay put and enjoy the peace and quiet of our award-winning Charlottesville, VA bed and breakfast inn, most choose to take advantage of our convenient location to explore some of the natural and historic sites located nearby. We are situated just five minutes from Monticello, the home of Thomas Jefferson, and Ashlawn-Highland, the home of James Monroe; and less than 10 minutes’ drive from historic downtown Charlottesville’s pedestrian mall, and the University of Virginia. The beautiful Piedmont Plateau of Charlottesville extends to the Blue Ridge Mountains, with more than 30 Virginia wineries and several breweries within 30 minutes’ drive. Notably Jefferson Vineyards is where our nation’s third president, the “Father of American Wine,” first tried his hand at viniculture. See why Life Magazine, Drinks Magazine and National Geographic Explorer magazine named the Inn at Monticello as the perfect place to stay when visiting Virginia wineries, or when taking the journey through hallowed ground.

The Inn at Monticello is also located in the midst of a thriving performing and culinary arts community. The Paramount Theater, Jefferson Theater and the Charlottesville Pavilion, located on the downtown pedestrian mall, and the John Paul Jones Arena, located on the grounds of the University of Virginia, offer headliner entertainment throughout the year. There are more than 50 great restaurants located with a 10-minute drive of the Inn, offering traditional and internationally-inspired foods.

Come and stay with us and see why Charlottesville has consistently been cited as one of the best places in America to live or visit.

For your comfort and convenience, the Inn at Monticello is smoke-free, centrally heated and air-conditioned, and we offer secure wireless high-speed Internet connection.

Throughout the mid-Atlantic, we are known for our gracious hospitality and service. As Thomas Jefferson said in 1816, “You know our practice of placing our guests at their ease.”
