This place had been billed as a wonderful place by AAA to spend our last night after our swings through Lexington, Ashville and Charleston before coming home to Harrisburg. We drove from Charleston and arrived at 4 PM and was told the room was not ready. We were dismissed and told to give them the number and they would call...

Dear Ed B., Thank you for taking the time to write such a heartfelt post regarding our AAA Four Diamond resort. We take very seriously our guests' comments, and our conscientious staff works very hard to exceed your every expectation. We have clearly failed to satisfy that goal for you.

On a recent trip to Monticello we chose the Boar's Head as it looked intriguing online. It was such a treat! Our room was lovely and the restaurants were great. We had an amazing spa experience while there. Loved that they had an adult only pool! We just loved our experience and would go back again! Highly recommend!

The historic location made this an ideal choice to treat my sister for a spa retreat. We were able to visit interesting places while also relaxing with delightful spa experiences. The hotel offered good dining, lovely walking paths, and delightful pools.

We paid a slightly discounted rate but service was great and unobtrusive. $8 resort fee worth every cent for access to pools, fishing etc. Great room in the 600-700 section. Nicely furnished with historic pictures. Bistro was great and good value for families. Sports club was good for simple casual breakfast. Any shabbiness in the interior is more rustic than...

My husband and I (and several friends) stayed at the Boar's Head for a local wedding of a special friend. All went smoothly - we were picked up at the airport, our rooms were ready and very comfortable, and all were friendly. We enjoyed the additional breakfast, charming bar and adult pool area. We happened to be there during Global...

My family needed special accommodations and they came thru with everything and did so with a genuine supportive attitude. Great staff from top to bottom!! My parent's had a great patio/porch to enjoy for breakfast and naps! My daughter's bridal suite was just that - a 3 room suite with 2 porches and a view of the lake. Just perfect!

Property was beautiful. Lots to do for the kids (ages 11 and 9). We used the pools and climbing wall. Snacks by the pool and adult drinks were well priced and a good selection for lunch or an easy dinner while kids played.

We stayed here after a day of touring the local wineries, this being our first stay we were initially concerned with the dated appearance of the check in area, never less our room was very nice and we definitely will return when visiting Charlottesville.
