    Boutique meets Country

    This charming hotel was situated outside of Charlottesville, super beautiful lawn with a chef’s garden, easy walking trail to the adjacent lake, and a pool with a hot tub. I really enjoyed staying here. The staff was very helpful. I was solo, but this would be ideal for a couple’s get away. They also have a hall, where I think they host weddings. Check it out!!

    Wish the free continental breakfast had more options for breakfast. I would have loved to have eggs every morning, but you had to pay for an omelette. Instead they offer pastries and yogurt with fruit which is yummy but again, which there was eggs

Nestled on 100 acres of pristine Virginia countryside, the upscale boutique Clifton hotel is Charlottesville’s premier boutique hotel, restaurant and wedding venue. Travelers come from near and far to experience the hotel’s picturesque 1799 Restaurant, enjoy Charlottesville’s wine and horse country, and tour presidential homes.

Located in the Blue Ridge Mountains, the white-painted mansion is a short distance from the diverse attractions and activities in Charlottesville. The Downtown Mall offers boutique shopping, Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello and James Madison’s Montpelier and other historic sites are nearby, along with several music venues, art galleries, and wineries.

The Clifton is one of Charlottesville’s most iconic estates with rich interiors, lush grounds, and a modern twist on a historic property. A romantic setting makes hotel Charlottesville’s most beautiful destination wedding, and the luxurious amenities add to the scene. Big and beautiful banquets and meeting space, fine dining on-site, free continental breakfast and afternoon tea on the veranda, an outdoor pool, hot tub, and croquet lawn make this hotel an ultimate getaway.
