Planning the perfect Virginia Wine Country getaway has never been easier! If you are lucky enough to have a few days to “escape”, we have the perfect itinerary for a short break from every day reality. Looking for a few days away with some pampering, mountain views, over 35 wineries, hiking, history and a charming bed and breakfast? Look no more. We have it all with a simple booking at the Orchard House Bed and Breakfast near Charlottesville, Virginia.
An easy 30 minute drive south of Charlottesville, you’ll find our historic 14 acre property. With two country-elegant homes within a 100 yards, we have accommodations for 18 lucky guests. We love helping you plan your perfect day in Charlottesville! With only so many hours in a day, you can choose history, hiking, antiquing, shopping, breweries, wineries, horse-back riding, first-class restaurants, amazing views, and friendly locals.
One of our favorite Charlottesville hotspots is the historic downtown mall. Noted as the nation’s largest outdoor pedestrian mall, this treasure is approximately 7 blocks, and features a plethora of restaurants, boutique stores, coffee shops, bookstores, ice cream shops and plenty of memorable people-watching. Park in one of the several parking garages, walk to the mall, and let the fun begin! Another popular option is to ride the green trolley (no charge!) throughout Charlottesville. You’ll see UVA’s campus, the infamous Belmont restaurant district, the “Corner” where college students congregate, and even the UVA Hospital stop. You can get off at any stop or just gaze out the huge trolley windows at the wonders of Charlottesville!
We will continue to feature amazing Charlottesville hotspots on our blog, but one thing we know for sure….spend any day exploring the Charlottesville area, and enjoy returning to the peace and quiet of the Orchard House Bed and Breakfast property. It’s truly the best of both worlds. All the excitement, history, and entertainment of Charlottesville, Virginia, ending with a well-deserved glass of wine on our expansive front porch: gazing at the mountains, listening to our peepers, birds, and gazing at the endless stars. The best of both worlds await you here at the Orchard House Bed and Breakfast!!
