We enjoyed gathering in front of the fireplace with adult beverages and conversation. Excellent coffee layout in the mornings. Comfortable beds, great breakfast. Higher rate than other accommodations in the area but very nice and charming....reminds...

Like most travelers these days, decisions to stay somewhere are largely made after reading numerous reviews. This weekend was no different as I wanted to have a special experience for our 13th wedding anniversary. In fact, I was pretty proud to let my wife know, "I got it...". Long story short, in the words of Simon Cowell, this hotel is...

Dear Taylor B, What a superfluous review on TripAdvisor of Boar's Head! It is certainly a detailed introduction to the only Four-Diamond resort in Charlottesville.

The Boars Head Inn has fallen on hard times. Stained carpets, old and scratched furniture, plastic covers of chairs left to hang, paper cups instead of crockery in the coffee room. Where is the old charm? And prices have not gone down to reflect the state of the property.
