Boar's Head Resort

Travelzoo Staff

Why We Love This Hotel

  • The only AAA 4-Diamond resort in Charlottesville offers Blue Ridge Mountain scenery in a historic setting
  • With roots that trace back to Thomas Jefferson, the resort's oldest buildings were originally constructed in 1834
  • Activities abound with hiking trails, 26 tennis courts, three swimming pools, a full-service spa and four restaurants spread over 573 acres

"Everyone was so nice. Coffee and tea are available all day long with treats at the end of the day. The grounds are beautiful. We wished we booked an extra night."

This AAA 4-Diamond resort offers guests a glimpse into the past on top of a host of activities -- from spa days and swimming to hiking and tennis matches -- plus modern amenities like marble bathrooms, in-room coffee makers and free Wi-Fi.

Rooms decorated in neutral hues with pops of bright color feature either a king or two queen beds, as well as colonial colonial accents -- like prints from the Revolutionary and Civil Wars --that mirror the resort's storied past. For more outdoor space, we recommend upgrading to a Premium Room, which comes with its own private balcony or patio -- some with lakeside views.

Dining options at the Boar's Head run the gambit from poolside snacks from the Firefly Bar & Grill to sustainably harvested oysters at the resort's Mill Room restaurant. Although there's no shortage of on-site activities, the University of Virginia is less than ten minutes away. In addition to strolling the school's historic campus, guests have complimentary access to UVA's 33,000 square-foot McArthur Squash Center.

Everyone was so nice. Coffee and tea are available all day long with treats at the end of the day. The grounds are beautiful. We wished we booked an extra night.

We think that one of the great things about being there offseason was the quiet and the ability the staff had to cater to us. The only sad part was the restaurant options were very limiting to the Rackets Club. They were really nice for both dinner and breakfast but I have been to the buffet once and that was 4 star for sure. The food was ok enough and the staff was really wonderful. They even made me a special warm cider drink for dinner.

Not the best time to be there, with a gas leak in the area which meant only limited food options were available in the on-site restaurants. Then ALL the powere went out, meaning no light or heat in the rooms. Despite conditions that were out of their control, the staff remained patient and courteous.

The hotel was undergoing a large construction and we were unable to use the very nice bar and restaurant. Even though construction was mentioned in the small print, it was not at all mentioned to what extent the actual facilities were unavailable. The value for money was not at all good in this case.

Check in time is at 4:00; and is not right, particulraly considering that check out time is at 11:00. They need to reconsider.
