My husband and I love going to the Lafayette Inn for the Chef's Tasting Dinner, room, and breakfast package. Chef Alan pairs the 10 delicious courses with specially chosen wines - all exquisite. We have visited many times and it is always fun. Last year we came with five other couples to celebrate my husband's birthday. This year we brought...

My wife and I stayed in Dicey's Cottage, and we had a fantastic visit. The owners and staff took great care of us, and we enjoyed a couple phenomenal meals during our stay. The cottage was very spacious and had everything we needed and more.

We stayed in Dicey's Cottage. It was adorable and great for some privacy and it had a lot more space than the average hotel room. The main inn had some great historic features. We were treated extremely well. I recommend it for the area.

Historic Inn and restaurant in small town in Greene County, VA. The room we stayed in (Jefferson Suite) was large and nicely furnished, but had a number of small problems that should have been addressed before we arrived. For example, the light bulb by one of the bedside lamps had burned out, the CD player was not usable, either because...

I stayed at this wonderful rustic inn fo my birthday for my chef sous apprenticeship with Alan Pyles. When I say...it was the best...IT WAS! I learned a lot about what happens behind the scenes and I even cooked for their guests that weekend. If you just want to get away....this is the place.

We've there to dinner a number of times. Food is great. My wife had them do my birthday party there; wine, beer, snacks, and it was wonderful. We also looked at the rooms upstairs and were quite impressed. Highly recommend!

We celebrated my good friend’s birthday this week with a stay at the historic Lafayette Inn in Stanardsville and a trip to nearby Charlottesville. We shared the lovely Tyler Suite which is essentially two bedrooms, one with a large sitting area and a shared bathroom. The suite had everything we needed, including a comfortable couch, coffee maker and small refrigerator....
