We welcome you to Hollymead House Bed and Breakfast, originally a 300 acre working farm located on what used to be the “outskirts” of town. The federal farmhouse has been established as a successful Inn for over 50 years.

In 2018 it was purchased by UVa alumna Pam and her husband William whose roots are firmly placed in North Carolina and Virginia. We live on-site and can be attentive to your every need. Returning the home to Milton Grigg’s 1937 design has always been our goal, and finally we can share this with you.

Relax anytime in our Library, 1813 Sitting Room, 1780 “Hessian” Room or outside on our bench-lined porch, brick patio or on a teak bench placed strategically under the magnificent Magnolia tree.

Our guests enjoy a beautiful bedroom with a private en-suite bath, authentic antiques, premium luxury linens, towels, robes and fresh flowers. We’ve updated to high-speed internet, individual thermostats, fresh paint (everywhere) in 18th century historic colors, and new (but really old) heart pine floors in each Guesthouse room. There is free on-site parking, and miles of beautiful walking trails among nature and lakes. A Continental breakfast is included each morning in our bright and (usually) sunny Garden Room.

We look forward to meeting you and making your visit with us as pleasant as can be.
