Federalist and Italianate architecture are joined by a hall in this bed-and-breakfast (and working vineyard), combining houses from 1832 and 1882. This 13-acre property is 15 mi south of Monticello and close to several top wineries, and their own vineyard is known for its pinot noir. All of the rooms have been recently renovated, with the addition of luxury linens and Arbonne toiletries. Dinner is served in the dining room by reservation Wednesday through Saturday, and
a substantial breakfast is included in the room rate. The inn even keeps its own hens for true farm-to-table organic eggs.

The town is cute and the inn's evening wine hour is pleasant. Furniture in the rooms seems to be mostly cast-offs and odd and ends. Not recommended unless a die hard B & B fan. Antique 3/4 length beds. Watch out if tall. Cheap, gauzy drapes etc. Your bathtub might be in the middle of the room. Opt for the Clifton Inn instead or go to an inexpensive motel.
