Surrounded by history and filled with charm, the Oakhurst Inn is a true gem of Charlottesville. This boutique hotel is just a seven-minute walk from the University of Virginia Lawn. Its 35 elegant rooms and five extended-stay units are housed in three carefully renovated 1920s-era boarding houses. You enjoy the best of both worlds: quaint touches like vintage hardwood floors, plus modern accents like fridges stocked with La Croix water and luxurious Malin + Goetz toiletries in your shower.
As you approach the Oakhurst Inn, you can’t help but feel the rich history of the geographic heart of Charlottesville. Your first impression of the property will be made as you glimpse the welcoming facades of its three buildings, which hearken back to early 20th Century elegance. Thoughtfulness informs every detail — from the simple yet upscale decor to the personal attention of the helpful staff. Who could blame you if you want to luxuriate on the property? But if you’re looking to roam, you’ll find that the Oakhurst Inn is perfectly situated to explore all the charms of this city.
