    The complete stay was great. Veda met us each morning for a delightful breakfast. Room was always clean when we returned. Could not ask for better service

    Beautifully furnished property across the street from UVA Med School. This was a gem of refurbished row homes, with charming amenities: Free parking next door in the Courtyard parking lot Verandah overlooking courtyard Lavender scented room throughout our stay Complimentary bottle of wine Daily water bottles Table books about Charlottesville Goose down comforter Daily turn down service including a cute makeup towel to keep white towels blemish free We will definitely stay here again with our adult children, renting the connecting suite Delicious New Orleans flair breakfast was included from renowned Farm Bell Kitchen attached to the residence (I'm from New Orleans ;) Veda is a wonderful hostess / manager. She stayed after hours to welcome us and showered kudos on our daughter who is starting med school at UVA. The only hiccup was that this particular room has a small shower stall and no vanity. I'm a clean freak and had no worries about using the floor space under the sink for our toiletries. Wonderful experience, we'll come again :D

    The Dinsmore Inn Is A Must!

    The Dinsmore is phenomenal. It is historic, quaint, charming, clean, and close to everything. The rooms are all perfectly appointed with complementary period pieces, along with updated bathrooms, wifi, very comfortable beds and pillows, elegant soaps, shampoos, and other toiletries, and complementary breakfast in the Inn's amazing main floor restaurant. You won't find a nicer breakfast menu. I had breakfast there 3 mornings and felt spoiled each time as the food and staff were exceptional. Parking is included and is right next door...within minutes from the front door of the Inn. Veda, the Managing Innkeeper, and her sweet pup, Wrigley, met me outside right when I pulled up. They were both as sweet as can be. Veda was as gracious, professional, and accommodating as you could ever hope for when staying at an inn, or anyplace. She and Wrigley made my stay so pleasant. The housekeeping staff was also as pleasant as can be. If I am traveling through Charlottesville again, I will definitely stay at The Dinsmore. You will be very happy with your choice!

    This was an unexpected gem. The room was very comfortable, the breakfast was great, but the best was the proprietor, Veda, who made our stay there as nice as it was.

    Unplug and unwind

    It was an amazing Bed and Breakfast. Not a lot of amenities - if you are looking for a mini fridge or in room phone, not your place. But, it was an incredibly comfortable room right next to UVA and close to the vineyards and the pedestrian mall. The innkeeper, Veda, was courteous and thoughtful, anticipating needs, answering questions, just spot on. In addition, the complementary breakfast at the Farm Bell Kitchen each morning was delicious, and again, Veda set up all the reservations for us. This was a perfect spot for a getaway with my wife, allowing us both to unplug and to relax.

    Immediately felt catered as soon as we walked into the inn. We were greeted by the innkeeper, who lived onsite and was a very interesting woman, and her dog. The inn has a very charming rustic feel, but the rooms have been modernized with central a/c and a roku tv. The tv has Netflix that works without requiring a personal login, which is the first time I've seen that. Each morning my wife and i had breakfast in the inn restaurant, which is a very fancy destination for the city. Breakfast was amazing both days. Parking was free and in Marriotts private indoor garage, which is directly behind the inn. Overall, it was the perfect relaxing staycation we were looking for and would absolutely go back.

    The manager greeted us with joy..and escorted us to our room at the Inn..she was full of knowledge about restaurants, the campus at UVA, distances to various historic sights. The breakfasts were creative. The staff upbeat and responsive. Just a wonderful stay.

    Love Dinsmore Boutique Inn

    One word Fabulous! The Dinsmore is a wonderful place to stay. The Inn has all the “old world charm” with new conveniences. The inn keeper Veda was incredibly accommodating and helpful. Our room was very nice and clean. The bed was ultra comfy with luxurious bedding. Our bathroom had a deep soak tub and a great shower. The 5 star breakfast was delicious. I would recommend the Ofelia Eggs Benedict. We will definitely stay there again!
