A charming country manor house built in the mid-1800's,
the Inn at Monticello sits cradled in the valley at the foot of Thomas
Jefferson's own Monticello Mountain. We look out across the sweep of
manicured lawn toward the beauty of the mountains, and listen to the
peaceful sounds of birds and our own babbling brook.
We offer five bedrooms, each with it's own private bath.
Our rooms are uniquely decorated with period antiques and fine
reproductions, hardwood floors and oriental rugs. All are coordinated with
the elegance and comforts befitting a romantic country inn. In the summer
the inn is air-conditioned, and in the winter guests enjoy cozy down
Wake up to the heady aroma a freshly brewed coffee, and
enjoy a cup as you await the lavish gourmet breakfast each morning. Every
breakfast includes fruit and juice, home baked breads and muffins, jams,
jellies, coffee, tea and of course the ever changing menu of delicious
entrees. Some of our most requested entrees are, honey nut stuffed French
toast with peach apricot sauce, blueberry pancakes smothered with fresh
fruit in orange sauce with whipped cream, or a southern favorite-praline
French Toast. Often more regional fare such as southwest chili cheese puff
or a mid-western spinach and egg casserole is enjoyed by our guests.
The menu is always changing and designed to make the
most of seasonally available specialties. Individual dietary needs and
restrictions are always considered as we prepare our morning specialties.
Our guests find the Inn at Monticello a quiet place to
relax and enjoy a day or two away from their fast paced lives. In the
winter the fireplaces offer soothing places to read a book, relax with tea
or coffee, or just unwind. The summer finds most guests on the porch,
relaxed in a rocking chair enjoying a cool drink while rocking away the
cares of the day. Some enjoy a walk to picturesque Willow Lake adjacent to
the Inn, or a game of croquet or bocce. Enjoy a taste of a featured
Virginia wine as you peruse the collection of menus from the many
outstanding restaurants in the Charlottesville area. In short, make
yourself at home. As a guest at the inn the feeling of being at home and
the feeling of being comfortable reaches out to you with every step. Inn
keepers Norm and Becky Lindway offer not only fine hospitality but
interesting conversation, and information to guarantee that your visit to
the Inn at Monticello will be one to bring you back again and again.
