Local & authentic...with a twist...Cynthia & Nancy Bruce invite you to visit our refreshing definition of what relaxation means in the 21st century.Think all Victorian
era homes are stuffy and full of dated furniture and dusty lace?Think again.
Cynthia brings her artistic background as a professional interior designer,chef and cake decorator to 'this old house'...and the results are anything but old-fashioned.
It is true that our Inn is on the National Historic Register, and is a Virginia Landmark.
The house is beautiful in a simple Federalist style, with a later Italianate addition...but the details are all very much in the NOW.
WIFI, the finest Anichini linens, soft & cozy down pillows, and furniture that has either stood the test of time or is new and special to the room...privacy when you want it, and concierge service when you need it.
We know the best places to visit for food, beer, hard cider, and just plain fun. Museums? Wineries?
We've got maps or apps, whatever your style.
If you are a baby boomer who doesn't feel your age - we are the place for you, and if you are millennial who has never tried a B&B - trust us, you will not be disappointed.
So come on, what are you waiting for? We'd love to show you why we love Charlottesville!
Colorful flowers outside change with the seasons, and each room inside will lift your spirits with playful details everywhere.
Mosaic floors and counters, fanciful desserts in the afternoons and great food (and even better coffee!) in the morning are a perfect match for the beautiful gardens outdoors...on perfect days, we dine al fresco under the ginko!
