Welcome to Prospect Hill Inn & Restaurant, an award-winning, full-service Historic Charlottesville Bed and Breakfast situated on a 1732 Southern farm, just minutes from Jefferson's Monticello and Charlottesville, Virginia. Our historic guest rooms and cottages, dating from 1699 to 1850, are uniquely furnished with a combination of period antiques and comfy beds. Upscale amenities include breakfast-in-bed, working fireplaces, whirlpool tubs, private balconies, nature trails, outdoor swimming pool, and "the brightest stars you've seen in a long time". Guests and visitors alike can enjoy romantic candlelight dining nightly (except Tuesdays) at our elegant restaurant in Charlottesville.

Nestled on 40 stunning acres in the midst of Virginia's burgeoning wine industry, the award-winning grounds at Prospect Hill are magnificently maintained, with many of the original 1840’s tree plantings forming a 5-acre arboretum. Whether reclining under the pool's shaded pavilion, reflecting by the garden gazebo, strolling the expansive grounds, or hand-feeding animals, the magic of Prospect Hill will make leaving difficult... and returning a near necessity!

Rooms & Suites

Welcome to Prospect Hill Inn & Restaurant! Between the 1732 Manor House and the nine original dependencies (circa 1699 – 1850), we offer thirteen distinctively individual guest rooms and cottages. To label them unique is an understatement - by maintaining each cottage’s original function as intact as possible, our accommodations vary from elegant to rustic. All, however, are packed with character, brimming with history, and tell a purely Southern story of folklore and tradition. With private baths, working fireplaces, creaky floors, expansive views, private decks, and incomparable romantic charm... each room and cottage offers an intertwined yet individual experience.

Business Travel & Events

Offering the perfect balance of the necessities for a successful small conference or business retreat, we encourage you to leave the voicemails, the interruptions and the sterile boardroom behind, and see just how productive your team can become when you change your scenery and try some “blue-sky thinking”. Of course, we have the essentials... complimentary WiFi, private (and elegant) meeting room (comfortably seating up to 30 people), gourmet snacks & meals, and incredibly unique lodging (if needed). On the other hand, we have distractions, too. But our distractions tend to be the chickens strolling by the window; or the eagles flying overhead; the frogs chatting throughout the evening; or the deer... unfazed by your presence; or the brightness of the stars above; or the daydreaming our 300-year old farm encourages; or perhaps your biggest distraction will simply be... the rare and elusive silence you will experience at Prospect Hill!
