The Clifton Inn
Set in the shadows of the Blue Ridge Mountains, The Clifton Inn is a Relais & Châteaux property that offers 14 well-appointed rooms and suites plus 3 cottages, all in a 100-acre setting. With Charlottesville's restaurant scene just 6 miles west and Shenandoah National Park about an hour away, guests have endless options for curling up, digging in, or stretching their legs.
Book This Room: Splurge on the Carriage House. The space has abundant natural light, a fireplace, and a loft area. Children under 8 receive a complimentary turndown amenity–a copy of Winnie the Pooh's Bedtime Stories and a Pooh Bear toy–because just like Winnie's home in the Hundred Acre Wood, the inn is also set on 100 acres.
Don't Miss This Meal: One of the restaurant's tasting menus features local ingredients and winter flavors such as Four Cheese and Virginia Ham Ravioli with Mushrooms, Fresh Herbs, and Red Wine.
