We love the Boar's Head Inn!!! Beautiful and serene setting! Outstanding state of the art athletic center! Fitness center is clean and spacious- Great tennis courts too. Birdwood golf course is challenging and enjoyable! Quaint Bistro Pub.Cheers to Michael at the bar. Convenient to UVA!

Room rate mid-300's for room without a chair to sit on. Room has bed, 2 tables, a bench at foot of bed, a dresser. Closet door opens toward entry door so it will not stay open because if left open anyone entering would be blocked. Small is understatement- bathroom so small you cannot sit in toilet and open shower door-... More

Thank you for taking the time to post on TripAdvisor. We're delighted our service staff in the restaurant and bar received an excellent rating from you. We regret that your room was a disappointment. Our historic hotel does not allow us much flexibility in the room size. However, we hope the amenities and services offered on our 573-acre resort will... More

Beautiful property, excellent rooms, friendly and professional staff. Second visit here and while I preferred the room in the main building on this visit, I did miss the balcony I enjoyed on my prior visit. Lots to do and see - even if only taking a walk. Very close to University of Virginia which is worth a visit even if... More

The Resort is very nice overall. It is a beautiful setting, spotlessly clean, but pricey. There are some nice amenities at the resort. My room was recently renovated, large and very comfortable. Bathroom was also recently renovated and spacious. But not all rooms have been renovated, so ask for one. However, and maybe it's b/c I stay there every year... More

The Boar's Head offers a resort experience close-in to Charlottesville. We attended a wedding and reception. The pond and outdoor patio are tranquil and evoke the Virginia countryside. Once can almost imagine a fox hunt bursting through an opening in the nearby woods. The rooms are modernized. There is a wide variation, given the age of the buildings. The rooms... More

We stayed at the Boars Head Inn in Charlottesville while visiting a niece that just started at UVA. The fast friendly check-in was great and all the staff were helpful. We loved the charm of the Inn and the beautiful grounds. A great place to stay.

We stayed here for a seminar which we attended for the opportunity to stay at the Boar's Head and were very disappointed.

I stayed here with a bachelorette party, and was not disappointed in the lodgings. The room, containing 2 queen beds, was large enough and clean. The bathroom was more spacious than most, with 2 sinks and a spa-like shower (floor-to-ceiling glass doors, stone floor and walls). Complementary toiletries are the same as those found in the spa, and were actually... More
