    Boar's Head
    Charlottesville, VA
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1304 reviewsTripAdvisor (1304)
    Free Parking
    Free WiFi

    Recent guests adore Boar's Head's charming setting and hospitable staff. But when it comes to the property itself, they offer a few words of advice. One, if you want the best room available, inquire about the handful of lake view rooms in the Main Inn. (There are six buildings with rooms, the largest of which is the Ednam Hall structure.) Two, to secure one of those lake view rooms, you should book several weeks or months in advance. These desirable guest rooms – all of which were renovated in 2011 – feature luxurious amenities, such as antique furnishings, minifridges, high-end bath products and plush bedding. And three, despite the resort's 2011 renovation, expect to find some areas of the property grounds that could use a facelift. What did impress guests, though, is Boar's Head's plethora of on-site activities, including a fitness club and three swimming pools. After swimming a few laps, indulge in a five-course meal at The Old Mill Room, or for more casual fare, head to Racquets Restaurant. Two additional eateries, the Firefly Bar and Grill and the golf course's Birdwood Grill, are also available for food. You'll find Boar's Head located about 5 miles from the historic Downtown Pedestrian Mall in Charlottesville, Virginia.
