Wonderful array of choices, all our meals were delicious and the presentation was first class. Looking forward to going again soon.
Superb food in a quiet, pleasant atmosphere describes the feeling we experienced at this lovely Inn for a family birthday dinner. The dinners served were a treat to the eye as well as to the palate. Though it is somewhat expensive, this venue is perfect for a special occasion and all present felt it to be well worth the expense.
The chef clearly knows how to cook but I felt like he was trying too hard and that there was just too much going on with the dishes so you lost out on the highlights. The scallops for example in the appetizer were cooked perfectly and delicious, but then there were several things on top of a risotto, that just made it too busy. The lamb was perfectly cooked at medium rare, but then no special sauce - only jarred mint jelly - which I love, but felt out of place with upscale presentation. The desert was again the same - the brulee well executed, but simply too much going on to appreciate it.
My wife and I (along with our little dog as pets are welcome) just spent three very restful days on this charming country retreat in Louisa right near Charlottesville.
We had one of the property's nine cottages, the Boys Cabin to be precise, a tiny yet very cosy house originally built back in 1699. It looks deceivingly small from the outside but totally blows your mind as soon as you step over the threshold.
Everything you need for a lovely weekend is contained in less than 400 sq.feet and that includes a perfectly functional fireplace, a jacuzzi, along with a few antiques and vintage pieces.
The main mansion sits just 40 yards away and it is run by a very friendly couple who fell in love with the place four years ago and have been running it as a bed&breakfast with 13 rooms.
The property sits on 40 acres(left from what used to be a 1,500-acre wheat plantation) which include a large wooded area wrapped around a few enclosed fields for horses and alpacas and makes for a beautiful walk.
The breakfast, which delightfully was brought on a giant tray to our cottage door, is superb on top of being complimentary. The restaurant set in the main house serves dinner. We ate there on our last night and were very pleasantly surprised by a simple and sober menu. We had scallops and a Crab and Shrimp appetizers followed by duck and lamb and concluded with Umali Brûlée and Italian Toast. Each course was beautifully presented, perfectly cooked and the portions were very generous. All this for a very reasonable price.
Overall the service was excellent and the owners and the staff made us feel very welcome throughout our stay.
