The perfect retreat for fresh country air
What we think
Skylark only includes hotels that meet our stamp of approval. Our editorial review for this one isn’t ready yet — but we’re working on it! Below is the hotel’s own description.
Reopening this Spring! Keswick Hall is a true get-away-from-it-all retreat. Where the natural beauty of Virginia and the breath-taking Blue Ridge Mountains are the backdrop for this boutique hotel. Reimagined in 2021- this turn of the century estate was reborn in the birthplace of America. And you can see echoes of its past in the Estate Rooms and Premier Suites- with their seamless blend of period elegance and modern styling. Rise to mountain views and the sun shining over the horizon pool- which looks out across the Full Cry golf course designed by Pete Dye. Venture out to explore the history of Charlottesville and the home of founding father Thomas Jefferson. Or dip into the contemporary culture of Virginia with bespoke wine tasting experiences. Fine wines are a big part of the restaurant at Keswick Hall- which bears the signature of chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten. His renowned culinary style celebrates the landscape that surrounds the hotel- with menus rooted in locally-sourced ingredients. Enjoy them in the striking dining room- with interiors that mirror the mountain peaks outside - or get a closer view with dinner served on the terrace. The refreshing mountain air rolling in off the blue-tinged peaks in the distance creates a truly unforgettable atmosphere. Keswick Hall is a Small Luxury Hotels of the World property.
