Historic Charlottesville Bed & Breakfast

Welcome to Prospect Hill, once an authentic 18th-century wheat farm, long-since transformed into a premier Charlottesville, Virginia-area bed and breakfast. Nestled on 40 pastoral acres in the shadow of the Blue Ridge Mountains, we offer 13 historic rooms and cottages (circa 1699 – 1890) for your relaxing getaway.

As the oldest continually-operated, frame-house Virginia inn, our accommodations vary from farm-house elegant to rustic… but all are packed with character and history, and offer a purely Southern story of folklore and tradition.

Whether looking for a relaxing romantic getaway, a weekend steeped in history, or the ultimate wine country experience, you’ll find your perfect accommodation at Prospect Hill.

Nature Trail

Our 2-mile nature trail has become a morning highlight for many since we first blazed through our woodlands in 2012.

The first 300 feet of the trail is an old semi-gravel roadbed that ventures straight into the forest. After one slight hill, it’s a relatively flat rustic pedestrian path that meanders back and forth through our woods, with two different exits (depending upon which side trails you take) behind the horse pastures.

It’s a short walk (you’re done in 20 – 30 minutes), yet numerous folks report it is the perfect way to work-up a great breakfast appetite!
