Prospect Hill Plantation Inn
Bed and Breakfast

Charlottesville, Virginia

Steeped in history and tradition, this Central Virginia inn offers old time hospitality and modern amenities!

Allow us to welcome you to our home at Prospect Hill, an authentic 18th century plantation in the foothills of Central Virginia near Charlottesville--a home which has fostered generations of hospitality and fine cuisine in the tradition of another lover of Epicurean delights, Thomas Jefferson, who lived just a few miles up the road at Monticello. His insistence on striving for perfection in all of life's endeavors is still an inspiration for us today, especially in our efforts to make our guests feel at home.

Your comfort and relaxation are our primary concerns.

Our historic Virginia inn‘s guest rooms and cottages are uniquely furnished with a combination of period antiques and amazingly comfortable beds. Working fireplaces, luxurious robes, bottled water, home-made snacks and premium toiletries simply add to your enjoyment!

Accommodations are in the restored outbuildings with their beamed ceilings, and squeaking floors and all with cozy working fireplaces ... or in the manor house with antique furnishings and quilts and a private verandah overlooking the countryside.

Enjoy... a Full Gourmet Breakfast

Breakfast at Prospect Hill is a true art form! Following a refreshing night’s sleep, you’ll awaken to a gentle tap on your door as our full gourmet breakfast is delivered right to your cottage... true breakfast in bed! Or you may elect to join us in our historic dining room, where soft music and the freshly-ground aromas of our custom-blended coffee will beckon you. Warmer months may even find you dining on our iconic Southern garden porch.

Featuring Local Farm-Grown and Organic Fruits

Our hot, plated breakfast begins with an appetizing fruit course, featuring local farm-grown and organic (seasonal, as available) fruits such as blueberries, strawberries, melons, and parfaits, or perhaps our homemade granola and yogurt. The main course is chef’s choice and varies daily, though guest favorites include poached eggs with prosciutto, roasted asparagus and chive oil; classic Eggs Benedict; Belgian waffles with warm peach compote and Applewood smoked bacon; Organic spinach and goat cheese omelets (with eggs from our very own chickens); Whole-wheat pumpkin-pancakes topped with wild Virginia blueberries or raspberries; and assorted frittatas and quiches with savory hams and sausages.

Breakfast is Included in Your Lodging Fare

We serve our own custom blend of locally roasted coffee, as well as chilled juices and more than a dozen selections of teas. Homemade breads, muffins and pastries complete the dining experience. Breakfast is included in your lodging fare and is served daily from
8:30 am to 9:30 am.

Dining at Prospect Hill Plantation is an unusual culinary experience. Guests are encouraged to arrive early to enjoy a complimentary refreshment while acquainting themselves with their fellow diners, our gardens, parlors, and wine cellar.

~Meetings and Conferences~

Selected as one of America's Ten Best Country Inns and recipient of the AAA Four Diamond Award of Excellence, Prospect Hill extends this same level of gracious hospitality to our business guests.

Prospect Hill offers the perfect balance of the essentials needed for a successful conference or business retreat. 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... WiFi, private (and elegant) meeting room (comfortably seating 30 – 40 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 free-range chickens strolling by your window; or the bald eagles and geese flying overhead; or the frogs and owls chatting throughout the evening; or the deer that seem unfazed by your presence; or the daydreaming our 300-year old plantation encourages; or perhaps your biggest distraction will simply be the rare and elusive silence you will experience at Prospect Hill!

Exclusive and Private Facilities include:

  • Executive Board Room 29' x 16'
  • Multiple Private Phone Lines & Fax
  • Complete Audio-Visual Services
  • Continental Cuisine in Private Rooms
  • Distinctive Lodging
  • Pastoral Setting
