Reviewed yesterday NEW

Booked two rooms in the Hunt Club location and they were excellent. Each had a balcony and a beautiful view of the lake. The bed was wonderful and each of us had a restful night. Bathrooms truly spotless. We didn't have an opportunity to eat on site, but next time we will.

Beautiful wooded grounds; large, nicely appointed room with large balcony; nice meeting rooms and outdoor pavilion for a reception. There are multiple buildings and the numbering system is a little confusing. Food for the conference was good--restaurant food was overpriced for the quality. BHSTAY17

First of all, I must mention that the Boar's Head Inn is my new favorite place to stay for a getaway with my wife. The bed we slept in was the best I've ever had, and the room, including the balcony, was exceptional. We walked around the pond, ate a great breakfast, and took in the beautiful scenery. I am...

Absolutely beautiful setting and the room is nice and comfortable. We had problems with the coffee maker in our room and it took three requests to the front desk to get it resolved. That's not what I expect for $180 a night.

My wife and I knew that we would be driving through Charlottesville on Mothers Day. We tried booking their buffet online, but were not surprised that they were fully booked. As we neared town, we called and left a message. When we arrived, they were kind enough to find us a nice table. The setting is delightful and historic. While...

Great trip for business - quick overnight stay, but exceeded every expectation. Lunch in the Old Mill Room was superb; nice bar that has the feels of a country den adjacent. Hope to return for a quiet weekend next time! #BHSTAY17

We stayed at Boar's Head for 2 nights while visiting the Charlottesville area. It's conveniently located close to UVA and Monticello. Unlike some other hotel options, it's a very serene and beautiful place to stay especially after a busy day touring the University and local sights. An added benefit is the excellent adjacent health club facility which is available to...

We enjoyed our 2 nights. The room and setting are peaceful. The Bistro dining experience grew loud with a large party. Our waiter was perfect, however. There is a distinct difference in the dining experience of the 2 restaurants--one more sedate and the other more casual. However, both offered great food and service.

Great location outside of Charlottesville, VA. Nice property with a pretty lake. Friendly front desk and good restaurant. Unfortunately, that's where it ends. It's in desperate need of a renovation - rooms are tired, carpets threadbare, towels are economic-lodge quality, AC unit is so loud it's tough to hold a conversation. They need to do more to justify their rates....

The boars head has LOVELY service (faultless and friendly). Some very nice features and a gorgeous situation. However, we were very disappointed with the bedroom and the bed linen. When we arrived the comforter was dirty as was the bed cover. The comforter/duvet was immediately replaced with a "new one straight from the box"; however, it still was uncovered. You...
