Our Guestrooms

The Dinsmore Boutique Inn in Charlottesville, Virginia offers nine guestrooms, each tastefully decorated, with a combination of antiques and contemporary furniture, designed for your comfort. All of our guest rooms have a private bathroom, and each room has guest-controlled air conditioning, heat and the modern amenities you expect in a boutique inn.

The Dinsmore is a Federal-style townhouse (circa 1822) built by James Dinsmore, an Irishman who was Thomas Jefferson’s master builder and joiner. The inn’s guest rooms hearken back to that era. Some are large rooms with high ceilings; some are more moderate in size. We want you to feel like you’re staying in an historic southern home, but we also know that comfortable beds and luxury linens matter when you’re traveling.

Every room at the inn is different. Several of our rooms can accommodate a third person, if you are traveling with a child or friend. Two of the guest rooms (Virginia and Veranda) are on the first floor if you have a hard time with steps, though neither are wheelchair accessible. We have some repeat guests who stay in a different room every time they visit and others who choose the same room every time.
