The 1804 Inn

The Malvaxia Suite at The 1804 Inn
A historic estate within a half-hour drive of Thomas Jefferson's Monticello and James Madison's Montpelier, The 1804 Inn is a tastefully restored Georgian manor that showcases original features, from hand-hewn floors to elegant antique furnishings. The inn's accommodations are complemented with three historic freestanding cottages for those seeking a more private experience. On-site Palladio Restaurant serves Northern Italian cuisine with an emphasis on regional produce and house wines, produced by Gianni and Silvana Zonin, winemakers from Italy who have owned the estate since 1976. Whereas Thomas Jefferson did not succeed in his valiant ongoing efforts to cultivate wine on his nearby property, the Zonin's are a success story. Adapting European varietals to New World terroir, they have created one of the top wineries on the Monticello Wine Trail, considered the birthplace of American wine.
