Oakhurst Inn :: A Charlottesville Boutique Hotel

We travel quite a bit and luckily, most of the time, my husband goes along with my desire to search out and stay at mainly boutique hotels in the cities we visit when they are available. Our recent trip to Charlottesville, VA was no different, I researched the town and found a fairly new boutique hotel call the Oakhurst Inn. And then we arrived at the Oakhurst Inn, a Charlottesville boutique hotel… it exceeded our expectations on many levels.

Located on a small historic neighborhood road, walking distance from the University of Virginia, the Oakhurst Inn, is a two building, 27 room, boutique hotel was a literal oasis for us during our visit – so much so, we came back early to stay another night at the end of our trip {and were welcomed just as warmly}.

Beginning at check-in the young staff welcomes you as if you are old friends coming for a holiday weekend – even allowing us to check-in early and bringing our bags up to our upgraded suite. This is a HUGE bonus for me. I mean if a better room is available, why wouldn’t a hotel give you that room instead… they have one room to clean either way and isn’t always better for the guest to have a better experience?? All hotels should take a page out of the Oakhurst Inn’s room upgrade policy.#A Oakhurst Inn Charlottesville Boutique Inn travel article by AnAppealingPlan.com by #KraylFunch Sitting Room Image Collage

The 27 rooms are spread out on the two neighboring properties many levels. All floors have a semi-private library complete with a Nespresso coffee machine, accessible 24/7, set on top of a small wine cooler filled with chilled bottled water and one of my favorite beverages, San Pellegrino Sparkling Juices, also available to help yourself as you desire.

Each library is accented with classic yet modern design touches and colors, a one-touch gas fireplace topped with an attractive mantel, filled book cases, leather couches and upholstered chairs for gathering and a daily paper from 4 major cities for reading during your stay.

Each room is decorated slightly differently but all have a chair for reading, relaxing or for just putting on your shoes.

Our room had a small seating area with surprisingly lots of closet space for a renovated older building. The bed was SUPER comfortable and we even had a small noise machine to use at night to block out any road noise and ensure a great night sleep!

The attention to detail continues into the clean modern bathrooms. Crisp clean white towels on chrome fixtures and amazingly scented bath products from Malin + Goetz made me want to stay in the shower for hours! I am pretty much obsessed with their products now… part of the dangers of boutique travel I suppose.

I have already recommended the Oakhurst Inn to friends I know look for boutique hotels and I can confidently recommend it to you if you are in the area. Even if you aren’t able to stay overnight, it is worth the visit to say hi to the friendly staff and experience the attention to detail. Please tell them I sent you and have a Pelligrino for me!

    This sounds so restful right now… and any place that has a semi-private library on every floor is my kind of place!
