A great time had by all!from A TripAdvisor Member
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!
Weekend at the Inn at Monticellofrom RosheenDumfries_VA
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.
