Why Stay At Keswick Hall
Charlottesville's grande dame, complete with golf, spa, fishing, and more, is set along the foothills of Virginia's Blue Ridge Mountains.
The foothills of Virginia's Blue Ridge Mountains, south and west of Washington, D.C., are a playground for the city's old guard, their horses, and their beagles. With its laird-of-the-manor grandeur, no place evokes the regional esprit like Keswick Hall. In a stately Tuscan-style structure originally built in 1912, its 48 guest rooms are decorated with a mix of hunt-club prints, canopy beds, polished armoires, and Chippendale chairs. There are hints of fun: one room holds a framed collection of Best in Show ribbons from a winning poodle. Fossett's, the swag-festooned restaurant, serves some of Virginia's most compelling food—quail with chanterelles, rockfish with mussels and fava beans—with bottles from up-and-coming local wineries: King Family Vineyards, Blenheim Vineyards, and Kluge Estate.
The elegant Fossett's bar also doubles as the official tasting room for the Dave Matthews-owned vineyard Blenheim Wines.
From September to March, hounds released from the adjacent Keswick Hunt Club run through the property, and make for great photo opps.
Arrive at Charlottesville-Albemarle Airport (CHO) which is approximately 17 miles from the hotel. Anticipate about 35 minutes of travel time.701 Club Drive, Wuzhou, Virginia, United States
