Signature dish, Eggs Meurette.  “In this French twist on eggs Benedict, two poached eggs cooked in a burgundy wine sauce atop sliced crostini.


Bitches Who Brunch

“For our appetizers, we ordered the fresh berries with Greek yogurt and mint, and the curried beets, served with Arugula. Those are both white girl dishes, and we enjoyed them thoroughly. The beets were slathered in a thick, flavorful yellow curry that was incredible.”

A huge “thank you” to Pippin Hill Farm for listing Oakhurst Inn as a preferred vendor for wedding guests that use your gorgeous property for their special day.


Talk of the House

“When I found Charlottesville, Virginia’s Oakhurst Inn I knew I had hit the jackpot.  It passed all my tests – great reviews, wood floors, good interior design, minimal bed linens,(yes, that is really a requirement for me and no I am not crazy.”


The Manual

“We love the concept of Oakhurst; it is comprised of several old houses all converted into well appointed (but not stuffy) hotel rooms. So you get the B&B feel with the luxury of turn down service and fresh baked cookies on your bedside table.”



“The care they take to maintain a “home away from home” kind of vibe is clearly felt — right down to the complimentary homemade ginger cookies from the cafe as part of the turn-down service!”


Abode Magazine

“Now that the transformation is complete, there’s plenty to be proud of, with custom furniture, upholstery, and color palettes for each space, resulting in their original goal: to keep it fun, comfortable, and fashionable.”


Kath Eats Real Food

After a delicious first visit, the Oakhurst Inn invited me back in for bunch last week! This little farm-to-table cafe is a hidden gem on the corner of Jefferson Park Avenue (called JPA ’round here!).”

Washingtonian Magazine

Washingtonian Magazine

“These four houses, smartly restored with the aid of a prominent local architect, provide a tranquil respite… especially in the library that’s a fixture of each house.”


An Appealing Plan

“Beginning at check-in the young staff welcomes you as if you are old friends coming for a holiday weekend – even allowing us to check-in early and bringing our bags up to our upgraded suite. “


Borrowed and Blue

“…we just happen to know the perfect place for providing those out-of-towners with a warm welcome and an incredible stay in C’ville. The answer is easy: Oakhurst Inn.”


Pineapples and Pearls

“No detail was forgotten in renovating the buildings and there are special touches around every corner. Breakfast the next morning at the Oakhurst Inn Cafe was local, a little bit Southern, and perfectly filling.”


Hosting and Toasting

“The decor varies by room but each one is gorgeous with all white bathrooms.  You also receive freshly baked cookies and branded waters in your room as a part of turn down service each night. What could be better? You’ll feel right at home!”


CVille Niche

“After enjoying a cozy night’s stay, I meandered down the pathway behind the Inn, down to the Oakhurst Café. Its sunny entrance and the smell of freshly brewed coffee welcomed me into the brand new, contemporary bistro.”

Travel Daddy – Tripatini

“An unexpected evening perk was the cheerful delivery of a flask of filtered water along with a pair of fresh baked gingerbread cookies.  It was this kind of attentive service that made the Oakhurst Inn experience such an exceptional and restful escape.”

The Centsible Life

“The Inn is designed to meld vintage charm and modern amenities, and it gets it so very right.”
