Historical Traveller Reviews of The Inn at Monticello Hotel

Friendly hosts make the difference

from A TripAdvisor Member
We spent 2 restful nights at the Inn at Montecello in the middle of a month long driving trip. Our days were full, exciting, and exhausting. It was great to come back to a quiet and peaceful home, relax and chat with other guests over a glass of wine. Norm and Becky were helpful with local information and they made great breakfasts.

Comfort and Grace in Charlottesville

from A TripAdvisor Member
We recently returned from a stay at the charming Inn at Monticello in Charlottesville,Va. This was something entirely new for me having never stayed at a B&B before. The prior weekend my wife and her sister stayed at the "wonderful"Inn while taking in the charms of the Charlottesville area. My wife and I were returning to Charlottesville the following weekend to visit our daughter at UVA and changed our reservation when we were fortunate enough to find one last available room at the Inn. The Inn is beautiful, immaculately maintained, friendly and located only a few minutes from, Monticello, UVA, and the many fine shops and restaurants of Charlottesville. Our room was large,comfortable, decorated beautifully, and spotless. The innkeepers are a husband and wife who are welcoming extremely nice people who know the local area inside and out. I was lucky to sit next to a man at breakfast the first morning who had visited B&B's for years. I told him this was my first visit to a B&B and I asked him for his opinion on what made a good one. He said it is the hosts. If they are friendly and inviting they set the tone for a great time. Norm and Becky did just that. Thank you for your hospitality, we'll see you again soon.

Simply the Best

from A TripAdvisor Member
We felt like we were in our own home! The service is impeccable and the food was top notch. We will return to this Inn for our little getaway.

Loved the Inn at Monticello

from LizandFred
We had a delightful time at the Inn at Monticello. Becky and Norm are generous hosts and more than willing to spend time helping you with your travel plans around Charlottesville. The room was lovely and comfortable too. The breakfasts were divine, and the conversation lively all three days we were there. We will definitely return. Loved those darling cats!

Hidden Gem in Charlottesville

from A TripAdvisor Member
Norm and Becky, thank you for the fabulous weekend. The weather couldn't have been better. Your Inn is very, very nice and we enjoyed every moment. I think Lucy (one of the resident felines) thought we were family. She's a very friendly cat. You certainly have a hidden gem nestled in Charlottesville. We look forward to future visits and will certainly recommend your Inn.

Take me back to the Inn at Monticello

from A TripAdvisor Member
Norm and Becky attended to every need, and made the stay very enjoyable. The location is within walking distance to Jefferson's Monticello. If you are looking for a bed and breakfast where every detail is cared for, then the Inn at Monticello is your place. The Inn keepers made us feel right at home. The Jefferson room has an oil painting of Thomas Jefferson and adds to the nostalgia of the home.

Great place to stay

from A TripAdvisor Member
We had an excellent time! This place is perfect for anyone! The rooms are beautiful and comforting. The inn was also a great location to many places in Charlottesville. They really knew a lot about the town and gave us some great advice on where to go and what to see. The hospitality was one of a kind and they really make you feel welcomed. We would defiantly recommend this Inn to anyone. Hope we get to go back real soon!

Warmth and Charm in Charlottesville

from A TripAdvisor Member
I had a wonderful extended stay with Mr. Norm and Miss Becky who could not have been kinder or more helpful. They called friends to help me with my relocation to the area! Breakfast was incredible every day. I met some truly outstanding people while I was there, a statement to the quality of people this inn attracks. They are five minutes away from most everything you come to the area to see, and they know all the "tricks" for avoiding crowds and making the most of your time in town! Wonderful, wonderful place!

A great time had by all!

from A TripAdvisor Member
I just got back in to town and am not sure where to begin! If you have never been to Charlottesville plan your trip now! Although I only live a few miles away in what I believe is a city with a great atmosphere, Fredericksburg, I can already see that on days off I will be wanting to go back to C-Ville for more!

The Inn at Monticello is a 150 year old home with all the charm of it's time (and all the modern conveniences of ours). Becky and Norm have a beautiful home. We did a two day package that included a bottle of wine, wine glasses and dinner in town. Luckily for us, our dinner choices were limited to 3 options. I say that because C-ville, as it is referred to by locals, has more restaurants than any town of its size that I have ever seen. You could eat out every night for at least 3 months and have great food and every kind imaginable. And our choices were top picks! I am certain our dinner would have cost us $125.00 without drinks had we gone on our own. We ate at Hamilton on Main.

Beyond the food, the town is home to Thomas Jefferson, The University of Virginia, 36 wineries & so much more! I could go on and on but would just recommend that you see it for yourself.

I believe the single most reason our stay at the Inn was so enjoyable was because of the people staying with us. We had a great group of guests and probably the best part was meeting before dinner to discuss where we had all been and what we had seen. We all went to different wineries and to different places on Saturday so on Sunday we went to places visited the day prior by other guests.

Becky admits to being a little difficult and we were a little disappointed that we missed breakfast on Saturday as we were never told there was one sitting and what time it was. Part of the reason I picked this Inn was because it offered Gourmet breakfasts as opposed to sweets and coffee. Neither of which I do and both were offered to me on Saturday when I appeared at 9:30 hungry. There was also no choice at breakfast which was a little discouraging because I read something online about a southwest egg dish that sounded really good and instead got a fantastic stuffed croisant with fruit. (it really was good but again I wanted eggs).

Would I return, yes, will I....most certainly, and I hope the same guests are there again!
Management Response from InnatMonticello
Thanks for the wonderful review, until the point where you say that I admit to being a bit difficult....not so. One the guest was instructed as to the breakfast time...two they stayed out quite late, three we never wake a guest unless requested, and we assumed that they were sleeping in. All of the other guests came to breakfast. When they arrived 45 minutes after the hot breakfast was served we asked him what they might like and he said coffee and juice were all that was know they all did have a great time, and they were a wonderful group of guests, and I am blown away buy such a comment. Me difficult? Yes over war, taxes and important issues, if you want the cold breakfast late, when asked then please say yes. We have heated up all sorts of goodies in the past I can and will do it again!

Weekend at the Inn at Monticello

from RosheenDumfries_VA
We just came home from our weekend at the Inn at Monticello, and we had a wonderful time. Becky & Norm were very gracious hosts, and very generous with information about the area, sight-seeing , restaurants, & wineries. Norm gives the very best directions, and one could not possibly get lost when following them. And came complete with maps.
The breakfasts were delicious and plentiful. You would never leave the table hungry.
All the bedrooms were different, and each had it's own charm. and bathroom. There is not a bad room in the house. The common areas were comfortable and inviting, and it provided a welcoming atmosphere for all the guests to gather and share information about their day.
This was a Christmas gift from our children, and it was most appreciated. We will return .

Top Local Tips for Charlottesville

Bizou a delightful find We couldn't get a reservation at the fine dining restaurants we hoped for on our first night, so at our innkeeper's advice, we tried Bizou in the downtown mall. Very happy we did! Decor-wise, there's nothing fancy about it, but the food was terrific, and reasonably priced (appetizers for 2, dinner for 2, 2 drinks and 1 dessert ran us about $75 after tax and a healthy tip.) A fun mix of flavors, very well presented. New on the menu was a bleu cheese ravioli with beef and country ham ragout, which we tried for fun, but with a little doubt, and we cleaned the plate! The rest was even better.

bookshops and Monticello This town is full of bookshops which is heaven for those like us who like browsing. Monticello and the University are well wortth visiting. We had really marvellous guides at Monticello (including a tour around the slave quarters, which I'd recommend) - I don't know how they keep their enthusiasm with the volume of visitors. They really know their stuff and are keen to pass on knowledge and answer questions.

Hike the trail, skip the shuttle bus! Get out and walk! The Jefferson Parkway walking/hiking trail which follows the road up to the main gate of Monticello is amazing. The path is beautiful and wild rasberries cannot be enjoyed from an automobile ride! If you do not want to walk the entire way - at least take the hike up to the house from the ticketing center parking lot.
