Why We Love It

  • AAA 4-Diamond lakeside inn built from the original 1834 gristmill
  • Freebies include afternoon tea and coffee with pastries
  • Hiking trails, 26 tennis courts, 11 squash courts, full-service spa and golf course on 573-acre resort 


Charlottesville is one of the most historically rich cities in the nation -- it's the hometown of two presidents and the site of Civil and Revolutionary war battles. Today, this AAA 4-Diamond resort offers a glimpse into the past along with the modern entertainment and amenities contemporary travelers seek out when vacationing. 

Officially part of the Historic Hotels of America, rooms are spread across four buildings, all maintained with historic integrity and luxe decor, such as marble bathrooms. Some accommodations have balconies or patios, the perfect place to watch a sunset with a glass of local wine, and fireplaces as well as modern necessities like Wi-Fi, coffee makers and cable TV. 

Less than a 10-minute drive from the University of Virginia campus, Boar’s Head Inn is the official hotel for the school and plays host to alumni, families and prospective students. Against a backdrop of the Blue Ridge Mountains, the 573-acre resort includes a championship golf course, spa, 26 indoor and outdoor tennis courts and a sports club with 11 squash courts and childcare available. Guests have the option to take cooking classes (available to groups only) and even float above the mountains on a hot air balloon ride. A fun perk is afternoon tea, coffee and pastries each day.

I would love to return, especially after they complete renovations to the main building.

The impact of construction cannot be overstated. The main lobby, where you check in, and the hub of activity are closed. Breakfast buffet is one of our highlights, and they did not offer it, rather breakfast was in in the center. Not but we were expecting.

Adults only swimming pool was quiet retreat. My husband and I really enjoyed swimming and reading by the pool.
Other Comments
dinner at Raquet Club was good but seemed overpriced given the lack of ambiance... sports programs on televisions.. more of a bar atmosphere.
