Outstanding tennis facility and hotel property. Staff is committed to you enjoying yourself. The sports club has a full range of activities. Charlottesville is very close and has a university town energy. The on property restaurants are well decorated and have quality fare.

The Boar's Head Inn is the best place to stay in Charlottesville. It is located just outside the city. You feel like you are really getting away when you drive down the long lane to the hotel. The staff is friendly and helpful and the rooms are spacious. The Bistro and Restaurant are great. Highly recommend.

Boar's Head is very charming and has a lot of character. Beautiful grounds and nice tennis facility. Staff is always very friendly and helpful. We enjoy staying here during Mixed Doubles championship weekend every year its our 4th year we stayed. Although a bit pricey but convenient to tennis center. Great meals at the inn.

This is a great place to get away with your spouse especially when it is decorated for the Christmas holiday. The grounds were very well kept in this winter season and we thoroughly enjoyed the Christmas tree walking tour. Rooms were well appointed as we stayed in the main building. The renovations are very nice---- while still maintaining the history...

Excellent venue for a special event or celebration. Comfortable feel and rooms up to date.
