This AAA 4-Diamond resort offers guests a glimpse into the past on top of a host of activities — from 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 10 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.

Great resort, super accommodations,friendly staff, superb restaurant. Wish we could have stayed longer. Didn't know when we book that there would be a bubble, brew and bbq event that weekend. It was so much fun.

Everything was excellent. The clerk that checked us in was not quite as knowledgeable as she should be, but this may have been a new job for her. It did not detract from the experience and we can't wait to go back.

Great experience at hotel, everything was very clean, and the staff was welcoming. I would love to stay again when the weather is warmer so I can enjoy the property grounds better.

Mediocre. Setting was pretty but service not up to par and several mistakes made with restaurant bills, check out etc. Food in the Mill Room was unremarkable for the price. Glad you offered this special but it would not be our first choice for a place to visit again.
Other Comments
Very noisy outside of the room (maids, etc.) We enjoyed the complimentary wine offered with Travelzoo special. My husband ordered another glass (preparing of course to pay) and the bartender persuaded him to try another Virginia wine that was only a "few dollars" more per glass. We were charged $22.00 for one glass of Petit Verdot from the neighboring Thomas Jefferson winery. We have dined all over the world and found this insulting that they would overprice the serving so high. The full bottle at the winery was only $28.95 for the same year. Ridiculous upcharge so the bartender could get a bigger tip. Sort of spoiled the experience for us.

We enjoyed our stay very much. There is so much to do around the nearby Charlottesville, however, we chose to remain at the resort. We enjoyed a glass of wine on their outdoor patio near the fire pit and at the bar/fireplace, walked the groomed trails around the resort, and enjoyed a delightful breakfast at The Mill. It was such an easy out-of-town getaway, I wouldn't hesitate to stay again!

Spent two nights at the Boars Head. So many wonderful things to do in and around Charlottesville which we took advantage of. Dinner in the Mill Room two nights was excellent.
