The Inn at 400 West High is not your typical Bed and Breakfast. At this downtown Inn in historic Charlottesville VA, set aside your preconceived notions of a B&B stay and prepare to relax in contemporary comfort: no creaky antique beds, creepy china dolls, or dusty fringed lamps in sight! Instead, look forward to bright spaces, carefully curated art (much of it by local artists), and tastefully whimsical modern décor.
Charlottesville Virginia's newest downtown Inn opened it’s doors in September 2011 and has welcomed a steady stream of the most delightful guests ever since. With four luxurious guest rooms and a small apartment (for overnight or longer-term stays) available, there is an intimate atmosphere to the Inn. No need to worry about tripping over your fellow guests: each room has a private bathroom and all but one have private exterior entrances.
Breakfast is served in the open, light-filled Gathering Room. Choose your seat at the café tables and eat your fill of crepes, Belgian waffles, omelets, quiches, and other hot breakfast treats made right before your eyes. Don’t miss the 400 West High Breakfast Blend coffee – locally roasted right up the street – and the gluten free granola (made by a local gf baker!) with fresh fruit. The Gathering Room is also where you are invited to relax and meet the other guests and is perfect for family gatherings. Sit by the fire on a long weekend afternoon with a glass of Virginia wine, or, in the warmer months, step outside to the flower-filled hidden garden terrace and listen to the birdsong mingle with the sounds of the fountain.
The Inn at 400 West High is an escape from everyday life, a simply sumptuous destination for a getaway right in the heart of Charlottesville’s bustling downtown. With a fantastic variety of local vineyards and breweries, restaurants of all nationalities and styles, picturesque countryside, boutique shopping, musical and dramatic performances at several top-notch venues, and historic sites defining early American history, Charlottesville has something to offer nearly every visitor all year round. If that is, you can bring yourself to leave your room!
