Highly recommend this resort! We booked it for a last minute, midweek trip to Charlottesville and fell in love with the location! We had a lakeview room that was extremely peaceful. The room itself was very up to date and clean, the bed very comfortable! It is more of a village than a hotel which makes it extremely quaint and...

The overall ambiance of this hotel is great. We stayed in the main inn. The food was good. It was close to everything we were interested in. I wish we had had better seating in our room. These rooms don't come cheap. When you stay somewhere 4 or 5 days it would be nice to have somewhere to sit other...

I love the Boar's Head for a quick, peaceful getaway. The grounds are immaculate, the staff is super and the food is amazing! It is super convenient to all things Charlottesville. The concierge are very helpful with any logistical questions. Rooms are always clean and comfortable. And I LOVE the spa sized bath towels! It's the little things!!

Location, amenities, food & beverage, conference center and fitness options...all excellent. Call ahead to reserve some fitness options. Good walking trail, so pack shoes. View of the lake from my room was worth the additional cost.

We were on our way back from a family event and stayed here for the first time. The room was charming and the view was great. House cleaning was lacking in the fact that there was toothpaste on the shower curtain that was certainly something that needed to be addressed. Hopefully next time they will pay attention to details. Everything...

Boars Heads Inn is an ideal choice in Charlottesville (have been there before for conferences). For this family trip, only glitch was sofa bed not being made upon arrival. Rooms are nice and food (both room service and at restaurant) excellent--as well as service. Would definitely look forward to returning.

Having been in Charlottesville just a few months prior and staying elsewhere, I wanted a different experience. I was visiting the University with my son and thought that it would be a nice way to spend sometime and treat ourselves. We were not disappointed. From the front desk staff, to the waitstaff everyone was very kind and professional. We had...

Boar’s Head’s close proximity to the Grounds and to downtown Charlottesville, as well as our bucolic setting, set us apart from other properties. Thanks for noticing and sharing this strength with other travelers. We encourage you to experience the peace and serenity of a spa getaway this spring as well. Hurry back!...
