Our visit was absolutely perfect in every way! From our evening dinner (order the scallops!) to sleeping in the four poster bed; from kicking the leaves on our early morning fall walk to the exquisite breakfast; from sitting on the front porch enjoying the pastoral views to hearing the creak of worn, wood floors; from enjoying a good book in...

Stayed in Uncle Guy’s House for 2 nights. Amazing room with a lot of character and very comfortable. We also had dinner one of the nights and the meal was superb! I would highly recommend one of their Friday or Saturday four course meals Will be going back again soon for both the stay and the meal!

We have stayed at Prospect Hill Plantation twice and plan to return again. The atmosphere is elegant but casual and lived in. We felt very at home and were treated like special guests by everyone. The food was delicious and we so enjoyed our walks visiting the animals, Jack jack the donkey and the alpaca baby was adorable, born right...

We recently had the pleasure of enjoying a long, holiday weekend at Prospect Hill. We stayed in Miss Marcie's room, that was beautifully decorated, exceptionally comfortable, and very quiet, despite being directly above the dining room. The house, grounds and amenities are in of themselves a destination in the greater Charlottesville area. The owners and those involved in maintaining this...

We just spent two nights in the Carriage House at Prospect Hill Plantation Inn, and I cannot say enough good things about the place, the people, and the experience. Nicely located near Ashlawn (Pres. Monroe) and Montpelier (Pres. Madison) we were able to enjoy touring these historical homes, and then came back for a refreshing swim at the pool, a...

Very old Inn (1732) that was a slave plantation. The hosts were gracious and we were given a card with the Plantation's history which was interesting. The owners have had the Inn for three years and are working on bringing the property back to its original beauty. Our cottage (the old horse barn) had been redecorated. The pool area needed...

We spent our anniversary at the Prospect Hill Plantation Inn this year. We stayed in the "Boy's Cabin" which was adorable, built in the 1600's! The bathroom had been added to the back of the cabin several years ago and was badly in need of some updating. We felt this way about much of the property, which looked to be...

The glow from the overall experience is still with us. Thomas Jefferson, born after Prospect Hill was a plantation, wrote that "tranquil felicity" was the perfect state. The modern neuroscience writer Antonio Demasio describes felicitous stillness as inner peace and contentment. We stayed in one of the former outbuildings with a plantation fireplace, a modern Jacuzzi, and a timeless view...
