1804 Inn at Barboursville Vineyards
The restored interior of this intimate inn’s Georgian villa, in Virginia’s burgeoning wine region 20 miles from Charlottesville, is a refined mix of damask, oil paintings, four-poster beds, and claw-foot tubs. Three palatial suites have private balconies with views of the vineyards, lake, and majestic Blue Ridge Mountains; the Octagon Suite also overlooks the ruins of a historic Thomas Jefferson–designed mansion. For maximum seclusion, book one of the two cottage rooms, which are carved out of the brick 18th-century servant’s quarters and screened from the rest of the property by a row of stately boxwood trees. Don’t miss dinner at Palladio, the vineyard’s elegant northern Italian restaurant.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
