Hotel Description

You can’t quite spend the night at Monticello, Thomas Jefferson’s old plantation just outside of Charlottesville, Virginia. But the 100-acre estate that’s home to Clifton Inn was historically part of Jefferson’s holdings, and belonged to the President’s daughter and son-in-law. And the Clifton Inn itself has the distinct advantage of being a delightful and luxurious 14-room hotel rather than, well, a museum, complete with security guards and other sleep-interrupting inconveniences.

This particular patch of countryside is as gorgeous as it ever was, and the inn itself lives up to its setting. The 17 rooms and suites, divided between the original house and the peripheral buildings, range from a cozy bedroom under the eaves to a honeymoon cottage and an entire carriage house. They’re uniformly classic in style and modern in comfort, with flat-screen televisions and wi-fi to go along with fine linens and luxurious bathrooms.

In this part of the country, warm, personal service is a matter of course, and the Clifton doesn’t disappoint. And they’re justifiably proud of their culinary traditions — while Charlottesville’s got its fair share of excellent restaurants, you won’t want to miss dinner at the Clifton Inn, where the prix-fixe menu makes the most of local, seasonal, and often home-grown ingredients. Book the Chef’s Counter for a close-up view of how it’s all done.

Please note:

Clifton Inn is closed for renovations from January through March 2018.
