“A B & B of Distinction!”
Reviewed 19 May 2013

We stayed at this B & B via a groupon offered that included dinner one night. Our room was very comfortable with a king bed. It was clean and we were in control of our own heat, as well we could open windows for fresh air. The dinner was superb and each of our group of 4 had a different entree. All rated the quality and quantity of food as just right! The breakfasts were different, but delectable. One morning we had fried grapefruits, I think (really good) and crepes cooked just right. Then we had a fresh Blueberry muffin baked in cute cups, that were some of the best muffins ever! After that a frattata that was also quite good. The animals around the property (13 acres) included a Peacock named Herman, 2 cats, 2 birds, and the occasional chicken wandering from the coop on sight that produced our eggs! We did this as a wine trip, and most of the wineries are with in about 13 miles, but only a few were close. There is not much in terms of dinner in Scottsville, so plan to go to Charlottesville or Afton for dinner the second night if you buy a package from them. I would definately consider staying with Nancy and her children again. A very relaxing and pleasant stay.

Room Tip: You will hear Herman no matter what room you are in but he adds ambiance to the stay! Our friends a...

This was a second visit to High Meadows. HM is a Virginian historical site that has an interesting quirky atmosphere complete with resident peacock. We were again on a Groupon that gave us breakfasts, an evening meal and we purchased a cheers plate with a bottle of wine. Food is locally sourced, so there is a lot of good, healthy eats. Mornings begin a bit late (9:30 AM), but one doesn't come here to "charge forward". WiFi is available. Rooms are on first and second floors. No lift. Central air. Proprietor room in basement. This is a great venue to launch trips to the many area wineries!

My husband and I used a Groupon to stay a High Meadows Inn. It included a 2 night's stay, one dinner, flowers in the room and chocolate-covered strawberries (we never did get these). There were pluses and minuses with our stay. The facility consists of a quirky older house that is painted with bright colors (walls and floors) as well as a small cottage. The grounds are nice with flowers blooming at all seasons, a small gazebo, chicken coops, and a large magnificent peacock named Henry. The peacock is like a watchdog that cries out whenever he sees anyone outside and announces the sunrise (but I usually am awake by then anyway). The rooms are nicely decorated and generally comfortable. However, our king-sized pillow top mattress was in need of replacing. It has very noticeable wells on each side of the bed (which could be seen even when the down duvet and quilt were on it). A new mattress would make this room top notch. Our room had a small dorm refrigerator with cold water and a electric water heater for tea. Tea is also available 24 hrs in the common room in the main house as well as cookies and nuts. Breakfasts were yummy and alternate each morning with sweet and savory. We had broiled grapefruit halves and strawberry and ricotta crepes one morning and blueberry cornbread with smoked salmon scrambled eggs the next. Coffee is only offered with breakfast and the choices were regular and flavored. 3 of us couldn't drink caffeinated coffee so we asked for decaf for the second morning and they nicely complied. For the Groupon dinner, we had a choice of a veggie entree, pepper steak, chicken Kiev, trout with caper sauce, and lamb. All meats were organic, free-range and were of very generous size. It came with a large Caesar salad, sauteed spinach, and choice of lemon tart or spicy bread pudding for dessert. All was delicious. The wine was not included in the Groupon and we had the choice of a local pinot noir or a chardonnay. Both were $25/bottle. We were presented with a check at the end of the meal for any extra charges (wine and gratuity). For gratuity sake, they provided an estimated value of the dinner that I thought was a bit inflated ($60/person). I found this off-putting. As for the proprietors, Ryan was stiffly friendly but knowledgeable about the Inn's history. The woman who cooked the meals (didn't get her name) was very approachable and very friendly. She obviously took pride in her meals and enjoyed the many compliments that were offered. She gave all of the guests valuable touring advice about wineries, hikes, and visiting Monticello. All and all I enjoyed our stay very much. It would have been perfect with decaf coffee and a new mattress in our room. I get the impression that the staff love what they do, but are stretched thin and are in need of a break (as so we all are!). The Groupon was a good value offer.

Room Tip: Some rooms have tubs only. Be sure to ask which have showers if you like those better.

We visited High Meadows in late March this year, which was unseasonably cold this year which may have effected our stay a little bit. We stayed in the first floor room with the whirlpool bath.

Pros: Very nice area, located minutes from many of the Charlottesville area vineyards and wineries. The property is very nice, with a small vineyard on site. You could easily go either way on the coloring and decor and view it as very eclectic (or simply call it tacky which is did seam a little bit in some places). Our bed was very comfortable. And the dinner we had as well as our breakfasts were truly excellent and far surpassed our expectations. I had the goat cheese filled lamb, and my wife had the steak au poivre and we really thought they were as good or better than we'd had anywhere.

Cons: We had purchased the Saturday night dinner in advance, and so had scheduled our week to arrive after work on Friday and eat on the way, but were called the Wednesday before our arrival and told that they'd be serving dinner on Friday that week. So while the dinner was excellent we had to take half days at work to keep our dinner reservation which was a little frustrating. Our room was also incredibly cold in the evening and the morning. It was unseasonbly cold so they had turned off the radiators which we left on the next day in hopes of avoiding another really cold night, but the staff turned off the heat and so after we returned from our day's activities we still ended up freezing the second night we were there as well. The other strange thing about our room was that while it had a very nice jacuzzi there was no shower at all. So you basically had to wash off in the tub if you wanted to clean up in the morning (we had friends staying with us who mentioned their room was set up the same way in one of the upstairs rooms).

So while we certainly had a nice weekend, there were a number of things that would lead us to not really recommend this B and B to our friends and probably not go back ourselves.

Our two night stay at High Meadows was wonderful. We have stayed in other B&Bs and found this to be superior. The breakfasts and dinner were simply delicious and the house was immaculate. It is tastefully decorated with lovely gardens. The town of Scottsville is quaint. We will return.

I brought my boyfriend here for his first B&B experience, and moving forward we'll be spending a lot more time in cute B&Bs instead of boring hotel rooms. It's all thanks to Nancy - the most gracious host you could hope for, Nancy's daughter - whose strawberry shortcake was out of this world, and Nancy's son - who took the time to share some history of the inn with us!

The rooms are immaculate, and balanced sophisticated shabby chic decor with fun colors for a welcoming and vibrant atmosphere. The grounds of the Inn are well kept, and the peacock & hens wobbling around add to the country charm.

We had a very relaxing and romantic weekend, and plan to come back as soon as we can.

Room Tip: We stayed in the attic, which was adorable and very private. I wouldn't recommend it for those w...
