I purchased the overnight stay with 10 course tasting menu with wine pairings for two to celebrate my husband's birthday. We stayed in the Jefferson. Room: a comfortable, attractive room with fireplace, four poster bed, high ceilings and a nice sitting area to enjoy the champagne and snacks we were provided after our late afternoon arrival. the room is bright and opens to a second floor balcony that wraps around the building.
We took a brief walk down Main Street in Stanardsville. Though this is the county seat of Greene County, the Lafayette Inn was by far the most intersting building, with its former slave quarters next door. There is a historical museum nezt to the court house but it was closed and is only open two days a week.
However, the courses of the dinner and the eight wine pairings that Alan, the proprietor chef, presented to us were worth the two hour drive to Stanardsville. Indeed, they would have been worth a full day's journey--so delicious, thoughtfully crafted, and gorgeously presented were they. And the fact that we were staying just upstairs enabled us to enjoy the eight different wines without trepidation!
