A large group of us visit Charlottesville for the wineries and breweries 1-2 times a year. This is the first time we stayed at Rockfish Valley Inn. Todd was great to work with, as was Linda the bus driver - both offered assistance and went out of their way to make sure we had what we needed. The house is spacious, and we enjoyed having two areas where we could congregate (the master suite and the "lobby" area). Couple of things I wished had been different - I was the ONLY person who didn't lose hot water in the shower, many crickets inside the house, curtains not quite covering the windows, red EXIT signs lit up some of the bedrooms all night, few areas small children shouldn't have access to (we forgot to pack our safety gates so were constantly running after the kids to keep them out of those areas). Note, I did not bother Todd with any of these issues as they didn't prevent us from enjoying our stay. Despite these inconveniences, we all had a great time, and agreed that the house's location is perfect.
Overall we'd stay here again. Plenty of room for 5 families with kids. Rooms 1-3 all only offer outside entrances which is awkward with young children. The living room and kitchen made nice space for hanging out as a group. We had 2 issues. 1. Spiders everywhere, webs full of bugs in the corner of the inside bedrooms and bathrooms. 2. People kept trying to check into the Inn while we had the whole place rented. It was uncomfortable and unnerving to have people walk in and go to the front desk to ask for a room, when there is no front desk and no one on staff. I wouldn't have mentioned this if it happened once but it happened three times in the 2 nights we were there
We stayed here for a work wine getaway, and the location was great. We had 11 singles and nobody had to share beds. Kitchen had all the basics we needed. Todd was very accommodating. We had a few issues with the bus tour we arranged through the house (AC was not working, and it had a flat tire whichput us behind schedule) but we were credited very fairly. The house is right on the highway, so a little noisy with the windows open, and that is your view from the deck, but that makes it very convenient to multiple wineries, breweries, cider places, and hiking trails. Overall we were pretty happy with the accommodations for the price
