Reviewed 6 October 2014

Captures the serenity and graciousness of the Virginia countryside but is also very convenient to UVA and downtown. Rooms are spacious and tastefully decorated. Beds are very comfy. Sunday brunch is an event not to be missed.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay, especially the hot air balloon trek across charlottesville. The accommodations, staff, and dining services were outstanding. We plan to return to try out the sports facilities and spa.

Dear Quiz123, And you certainly won't be disappointed with our Sports Club. It has so much to offer! Thanks for leaving your outstanding comments on TripAdvisor. Boar's Head is hosting the World Squash Tournament in 2018, so keep on the lookout for details. Best, Russ Cronberg

The Boar's Head Inn is great for a weekend escape. Make sure you reserve a room that has a balcony that looks onto the water and sprawling property. Take advantage of the beautiful grounds too - it's excellent for walks and runs with lots of hills to climb. The room itself was spacious with a newly renovated bathroom and a...

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-...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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.
