They made it easy for us to really enjoy UVA orientation. Quick check in, clean rooms and we got an upgrade without asking. Breakfast was great, good dinner and bar. Beautiful setting. Can't say enough about this property. Highly recommended.

Relaxing is so easy at The Boar's Head Inn. I wouldn't stay anywhere else when in the Charlottesville area. The fine furnishings and spa quality bathroom amenities make you feel like royalty and the staff treats you like you are.

Room Tip: The main building does have some hallway noise, but the furnishings seem to be more cozy. The rooms...

Just spent 3 nights celebrating with my daughter for her 20th birthday. The hotel is charming, our room was perfect, the staff are all helpful, and very friendly. We had room service one evening because we had an early balloon ride planned for the next morning, so we ordered room service, it was delivered quickly, was hot, and delicious. We asked the chef to pick our cheeses for our cheese plate - great choices. Dinner at the Old Mill Inn was spectacular. To start, great cocktail list, my daughter and I starred with a seared foie gras and a lump crab appetizer, ceaser salad and an old mill salad, then we shared the lamb shank - enough for 3 really. We will certainly visit again.

Room Tip: 716 is a really good room Lake view with a balcony and because it was myself and my daughter, we pr...

My wife and I recently returned to The Boar's Head Inn for a two night stay for our summer vacation trip. It is extremely well maintained and the service is terrific. The food at the Old Mill Room is expensive, but it offers a great dining experience, especially if you are not use to such a fancy option for dinner. Room service is great and is delivered promptly. Breakfast has many options, all of which were delicious when tried. We used the Inn Pool, as well. It is adults only and provides for a very quiet and peaceful swimming experience without distractions. This was our second stay at the Inn and we loved it. We highly recommend the place for anyone who likes to relax, take in the scenery and enjoy a peaceful and possibly romantic vacation.

We particularly enjoyed the food and the service. We were handled like family. We'll return again for sure. The pool was great and we enjoyed our walks around the facility. We will be planning another this year (we usually only schedule one visit per year).

Room Tip: Work with the front desk folks.

We stayed at this hotel over the Fourth of July and had a nice time. We thought the Ednam rooms were very nice with a large porch. We enjoyed fishing and walking the trails. Breakfast was very nice. Dinner at 1884 was fine but not a destination in itself. The Sports Club facilities were very nice. Wish they had mentioned Farmington fireworks could be seen from resort. They sent us to McIntire Park for fireworks which was a zoo. Boar's Head should do their own fireworks and have more planned for the Fourth of July. They should not send guests to McIntire Park.

Thank you for choosing Boar’s Head for your Fourth of July holiday weekend and for your TripAdvisor post! We are very pleased that you took advantage of the Ednam rooms with their large porches. Also, we’re delighted to learn that you enjoyed fishing, the walking trails and the sports facility. Unfortunately, we are not at liberty to send guests to Farmington to enjoy the fireworks there as it is a private club and gated community. We regret that the McIntire fireworks display, a longstanding Charlottesville tradition, was too congested. We do hope you took advantage of some of our July 4th events: a day-long flag day golf contest at Birdwood; games such as water balloon toss and a 3-legged relay on the upper lawn at 10am; complimentary chair massages at the spa; the BBQ buffet; and, of course, the bounce house. Please know that we greatly appreciate your stay and your valuable feedback; it helps us improve and develop these activities.

Just spent our first weekend away at the Boars Head. This hotel is fantastic the service was outstanding from everyone who i came in contact with. The rooms are clean and comfortable the gym is new with more equipment then anyone would need. This property is also very centrally located to all the Charlottesville attractions including great restaurants and vineyards. its a bit older but very clean and rustic. Will stay here again next summer.
