About

Authentic Charlottesville, Virginia Plantation

Once an authentic 18th century plantation, Prospect Hill was long-ago transformed into a premier Charlottesville, Virginia area bed and breakfast. Between the Manor House and the nine original dependencies (circa 1699 – 1850), we offer eleven distinctively individual guest rooms and cottages. To call them unique would be an understatement – by keeping each cottage’s original function as intact as possible, our accommodations vary from elegant to rustic. prospecthill_breakfast_pic2All, however, are packed with character, brimming with history, and tell a purely Southern story of folklore and tradition. With private baths, working fireplaces, creaky floors, expansive views, private decks, and incomparable romantic charm… each room defines who we are and tells the story of Prospect Hill.

 Located in a Beautiful Blue Ridge Foothills Setting

Nestled on 40 pastoral acres and situated at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains, the award-winning grounds at Prospect Hill are magnificently beautiful, with many of the original 1840’s tree plantings (including the rarest magnolia species in the U.S.) forming a 5-acre arboretum. Whether reclining under the pool’s shade pavilion, reflecting by the garden gazebo, strolling the expansive grounds, or hand-feeding horses, sheep, and chickens, the magic of Prospect Hill will make leaving difficult… and returning a near necessity!
