Stayed at this property for one night on June 30, 2015. I had stayed here previously, but about 15 years ago. It was great to see that the rooms have been completely renovated since then. Huge rooms, nice bathrooms with upgraded toiletries (and bigger sizes bottles). Also has breakfast at the restaurant the next morning which was also very good....

We will revisit the Inn again with pleasure. We visited our son-in-law who was doing duty at the JAGC school. He joined us for drinks in the Bistro, then for dinner at the restaurant--both excellent. We plan to host our family in the fall.

I attended a conference at the Boar's Head and would hope not to go there again, this is my personal preference.

Room was one of the cleanest I have ever stayed in. Grounds were very well maintained. Staff was very friendly. Bistro bar was very comfortable, a group of young children detracted from our overall experience, but drink selection was good and staff was very accommodating.

We stayed here for our first time, and the grounds were fun to walk around. We took advantage of the bikes they have available and enjoyed riding around the hills behind the hotel. The pool was nice and the food at the restaurant was good.

Beautiful grounds and upscale rooms that still have some Charlottesville charm. Excellent brunch. Consistent quality on our many stays here. We recommend the 600 or 700 building because of it's beautiful location next to the lake

Another fine visit to Boar's Head. I love the grounds and the amenities like the sports center, pool, and afternoon tea and cake. (Do not miss the cake; amazing!).

The Boars Head sits in a beautiful setting, but is definitely getting a bit tired. The updated rooms are nicer than years past but some still border on rustic.
