Begin the week steeped in the history of the region. After a morning steam, enjoy a hearty breakfast looking toward the mountains. Then it’s on to Monticello (30 minutes), the home of Thomas Jefferson, the third US President and the author of the Declaration of Independence. Allow at least three to four hours to see the home and grounds (longer if you’re really into history). Eat lunch in the $43 million Visitor’s Center on the property. When you leave, stop at Jefferson Vineyards for a tasting and winery tour. You should still have time to see Highland, the neighboring home of James Monroe, the fifth US President. Or visit a couple additional wineries; Trump Winery and Blenheim Vineyards are nearby. Eat an early dinner at Tavola (Italian) or The Local, located in the Belmont neighborhood between Monticello and downtown Charlottesville. Or back to the Inn for a swim and nap before a leisurely dinner at Rhett’s River Grill and Raw Bar just fifteen minutes from the Inn.
