The Inn at Monticello, our bed and breakfast in Charlottesville, Virginia, carries on a tradition of gracious southern 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 sometimes 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, guests often enjoy a glass of wine by the hearth in the living room. In the spring and summer, they love to sit on the front porch while being entertained by the birds and the deer.

Breakfast at the Inn at Monticello is a celebration of fine food and 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 homemade cookies or brownies in the evening.

Although guests can 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 that are 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 from historic downtown Charlottesville's pedestrian mall, and the University of Virginia. The beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains and more than 20 Virginia wineries are within 30 minutes, including Jefferson Vineyards, 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 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 Frommer's and Cities Ranked & Rated recently named Charlottesville as the #1 city in which to live, and why Money magazine and Relocate America identified it as a great place to relocate.

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

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."



As the summer comes to a close, we are excited about classes and activities resuming at the University, fall foliage, and new developments at historic sites, restaurants and wineries.

UVA classes begin next week, and students are moving into their dorms and apartments now, infusing our community with lots of energy and excitement.  And parents, relatives and alums are visiting, or planning to visit our area.  We look forward to some of those visitors staying with us at the Inn at Monticello. 

Fall foliage should be exquisite this year, as we've had a good amount of rain.  Leaf peekers will be out in force!

And Monticello and Montpelier have opened some new tours and attractions, thanks in part to generous gifts from benefactors.  Lots to learn and see and do here.

We now have more than 30 wineries in our area, with many building new or improved tasting rooms and other facilities.  And the quality of Virginia wines continues to go up and up and up.  We also have more than a handful of new restaurants, especially along West Main Street.

So, we have many things to be excited about -- come see for yourself!
