Best Hotels in Virginia
A refined and regal atmosphere near Jefferson's Monticello.
Upon entering the grounds of this 600-acre resort, you'll feel transported back to the wealth and elegant lifestyle of the early American upper crust. The main building's architecture reflects the Italianate style popular in the 1800s, and the property feels like a private estate, with amenities and facilities that are extensive and impressive. Inside each renovated accommodation guests will find sumptuous, handmade bedding, Frette linens and classically styled furniture, plus robes, heated towel racks, herbal bath salts and Molton Brown bath amenities. There are also flat-screen TVs, iHome clock radios, CD/DVD players and other modern amenities. But none of this detracts from the colonial ambience. Rooms offer views of manicured gardens, fields or the golf course. On-site dining includes Fossett's Restaurant, the Palmer Room Restaurant at the Keswick Club and the Villa Crawford for afternoon tea. Recreation abounds, with opportunities for tennis, spa treatments and golf on an Arnold Palmer signature course. The charms of Charlottesville are just minutes away.
