Historic inn and pet-friendly as well
Posted Feb 26, 2013
This pet-friendly hotel is a member of the prestigious Relais & Chateaux, a great recognition of quality. For those interested in history, the inn was originally the home of Thomas Jefferson's son-in-law, who married Martha, Jefferson's daughter who acted at Monticello as hostess in place of her deceased mother. The inn is charming and the setting is delightful. Its restaurant is popular with locals as well as those who stay overnight at the inn. We stayed in the separate small building dubbed the Honeymoon Cottage and it was especially charming and perfectly fine for a one-night stay for two but not for a longer stay. The bathroom is barely adequate because of space limitations. Overall, we enjoyed and appreciated the experience, which included a delightful dinner.
