The owners, Terenee and Jim, have created something special at Prospect Hill Inn. My wife and stayed there last August, shortly after Terenee and Jim had taken over as owners, and we greatly enjoyed our stay. We just returned and were even happier with our stay. All of the good things associated with our first stay (attentive and professional service, clean and comfortable rooms, beautiful grounds, great breakfasts, being warmly welcomed) are even truer today. Terenee and Jim have continued to improve both the facilities and the grounds; for example, the pool has been updated and a beautiful wildflower meadow has been added. In addition, we took advantage of the Saturday night five course dinner and it was wonderful. The attentive service has remained and it was truly a pleasure getting to interact with the owners. Would not hesitate in returning or recommending it.

We spent three nights at Prospect Hill earlier this month and it was wonderful! Jim and "T" are very welcoming, as were Max and Gus Gus! The Inn and our room were spotlessly clean, the meals were absolutely delicious and the pool was beautiful clear and cool and clean so refreshing. We loved our stay and highly recommend Prospect Hill Inn!

We stayed here as a weekend getaway close to home. I think it was less than an hour from Richmond and maybe 20 minutes from downtown Charlottesville . The hosts are very friendly and welcoming. The beds are very comfortable, and the breakfast and coffee were great. The new owners completely redid the saltwater pool, and it is lovely. I think guests considering this inn should know, this is a former plantation which we didn’t realize from the online information but is on the sign at the entry.

We stayed in the Overseer’s cottage! So romantic and relaxing! The entire property is a delight with all the huge trees and nature trail. My husband had arranged with the owner to sprinkle rose petals, a fresh arrangement, chocolate covered strawberries and champagne! I felt like it was the perfect location for our date night!! The breakfast was delicious!! The coffee was yummy. I highly recommend this Inn for a romantic getaway!!

From the moment we arrived, the owners and guests were very friendly. Terenee "T" & Jim are very pleasant and kind host. Every attention to detail was taken care of, and the smiles are genuine. The house is like stepping back in time, and the grounds are immaculately kept. There is a beautiful swimming pool that has been newly renovated and is saltwater versus chlorine, which is fabulous. The atmosphere as a whole was very relaxing and delightful. Jims culinary skills at breakfast were excellent every morning, and they paid very close attention to my allergies. I never had to remind them. The staff is wonderful too. Very kind and courteous. I appreciate all the kindness and attention. It was a delightful and relaxing respite from the real world. I look forward to returning in the future. Oh, and they have their own special roast Prospect Hill blend coffee that is absolutely wonderful 💯 My only regret is that I didn't get a picture of them on their front porch and of one of the four of us together. Next time!

We had a wonderful experience! The staff was very nice and accommodating, everything was very clean, and the grounds were beautiful. The breakfast was a little fancy for us but the latte was amazing! We will definitely be back!

Breakfast was delicious, our cottage very comfortable, and the resident dogs friendly and well behaved. Our stay at Prospect Inn was just what we needed and we hope to return ! Thank you Terenee and Jim!

Family 50th Anniversary Trip absolutely Amazing! Stayed in Overseer's Cottage, Uncle Guy's Cabin & Boy's Log Cabin, all were so comfortable and beautifully accommodated. Breakfast each morning was an absolute joy and so tasty! Grounds were so peaceful and beautiful for our family photos. The pool renovation was top-notch and very nice. Can't wait to go again!
