University of Virginia

UVA is across the street from the inn and was founded by Thomas Jefferson in 1819. It was the first University centered around a library instead of a church. Today it enjoys a reputation as a “Public Ivy” and has about 15,000 undergraduates as well as a Law School, Business School, Medical School and graduate Arts and Sciences programs.

The “grounds” of UVA are a UNESCO World Heritage Architectural site. Tours meet daily (except during the three-week holiday break in Dec.-Jan. and during the final exam period during the first three weeks of May).

Call (434) 924-7969 for more information.

Monticello was the primary plantation of Thomas Jefferson, who started building there when he was 26 years old. The Jefferson-designed house was based on the neoclassical principles described in the books of the Italian Renaissance architect Andrea Palladio. It is situated on the summit of an 850-foot-high peak about four miles southeast of the inn. Its name comes from the Italian “little mount.” The plantation included numerous outbuildings for specialized functions, a nailery, and quarters for domestic slaves along Mulberry Row near the house; many of these features have been reproduced for the touring public. Monticello attracts 400,000 visitors annually and is open every day of the year, including Sundays, except Christmas.

Local Wineries

There are 30 wineries within 25 miles of Charlottesville producing wines of national and international acclaim. Virginia is the fifth-largest producer of wines in the United States. The wineries on the “Monticello Wine Trail” have all been inspired by Thomas Jefferson’s vision of winemaking. He believed that “we could, in the United States, make as great a variety of wines as are made in Europe, not exactly of the same kinds, but doubtless as good.” Most wineries open at 11am and offer light fare for a picnic along with wine tasting.  More information is available on the Monticello Wine Trail website.


Local Breweries

Home to a number of award-winning breweries, Charlottesville has been a top destination for visitors seeking craft brews and mountain views. Located along the Blue Ridge Mountains are some of our favorite breweries: Blue Mountain Brewery, Devils Backbone Brewing Company, and Starr Hill Brewery. In the City we recommend Champion Brewing Co., Three Notch’d Brewing, and South Street Brewery. Follow the Blue Ridge Trail for a self-guided tour and experience the craft beer scene in our town.
