I stayed at this wonderful rustic inn fo my birthday for my chef sous apprenticeship with Alan Pyles. When I say...it was the best...IT WAS! I learned a lot about what happens behind the scenes and I even cooked for their guests that weekend. If you just want to get away....this is the place.

We've there to dinner a number of times. Food is great. My wife had them do my birthday party there; wine, beer, snacks, and it was wonderful. We also looked at the rooms upstairs and were quite impressed. Highly recommend!

We celebrated my good friend’s birthday this week with a stay at the historic Lafayette Inn in Stanardsville and a trip to nearby Charlottesville. We shared the lovely Tyler Suite which is essentially two bedrooms, one with a large sitting area and a shared bathroom. The suite had everything we needed, including a comfortable couch, coffee maker and small refrigerator....

Had a wonderful time with my daughter and her husband and 5 and 10 year old granddaughters . Started with Breakfast with Santa which was a delight. Later in the day was the Parade of Lights viewed from the balcony. Great snack food and wine while watching the Stanardsville parade. The kids were completely thrilled and never stopped smiling and...

We stayed in the Washington Room, which was lovely. It had it's own little den of sorts, a nice bathroom, and bedroom. The staff were hospitable and everything went off without a hitch. The restaurant is superb and I highly recommend you take advantage of it! The history of the place is quite interesting and sure beats staying at your...

Drove to Stanardsville for lunch at the Lafayette Inn a couple of days ago with several friends. We all enjoyed it. Food and service was very good. I had the quiche of the day (broccoli, cheese, and tomato). It was a little disappointing; the tomato was on the bottom so made the crust a little soggy. Otherwise, everything was good....

My Wife's two older sisters travelled from Canada for a visit. We are, all, of an age where tossing a blow-up bed on the Living Room floor is NO longer an option. They opted to stay with Alan and Kaye at the Lafayette. Having previously visited Dicey's Cottage, they decided to stay within the Main building. The Tyler suited them...

Stopped for lunch while exploring some Virginia wineries. My wife had the daily quiche and I had the shrimp and grits. Both were yummy. Very good menu and beer/wine list. Staff was very nice and friendly. The owner stopped by and offered recommendations on some things to do and see.

To give a good comment on the Inn, I have to start with the food. What leaves the kitchen is so good! It is a crime not to eat here. The restaurant, just like the rest of the Inn is in a nice old style. Very comfortable and stylish. We stayed in the Monroe room. What you get is a...

I am sure that the restaurant here is worthy of the excellent reviews. Our breakfast was served swiftly by the owner and Chef. It was fresh and delicious. The dining room is quaint and historic looking. Unfortunately, the room we stayed in was not as charming. There was a mildew and musty smell. The furnishings were old and tattered. They...
