This Inn is very historic and beautiful--it's worth a stay. I would say it's best for romantic couples. It's off the beaten path, but in a great area filled with wineries and near some sites like Monticello and Montpelier. The grounds are pretty for a stroll, but not too big.
Something happened with our room and they upgraded us to the master suite which was an unexpected surprise. They had lots of books you could pick up and look through. I remember reading one on ghosts and that was fun, being in an old plantation. There was also a porch right outside our room. Everything was really wonderful.
I would recommend getting dinner there or a reservation. We were there on a Sunday night and we drove around and found NOTHING.
