Comfort, Convenience and History

Located on Main Street in midtown Charlottesville, Dinsmore House Bed and Breakfast is a welcoming home base for your visit to the area. Ideally situated at the University of Virginia and minutes away from hundreds of restaurants, boutiques and local shops, our location and history set the Inn apart.

Since 2003, Dinsmore House Bed and Breakfast has welcomed guests from around the world. As hosts to more than 30,000 guests, we have a unique understanding of your needs and expectations. We offer customizable in-room amenities such as flowers, wine, and in-room farm baskets because some guests are celebrating a special occasion. Other guests are on the move, and want to experience the area, so we have get-out-and-go packages like wine tours and discounted tickets for historic Presidential homes. Whatever the purpose of your trip, be it business or pleasure, relaxation or adventure, Dinsmore House Bed and Breakfast staff wants to help make it memorable.

The Inn features eight guestrooms, each distinctly decorated for a unique lodging experience, walking distance to the Historic Downtown Mall, and only five miles from Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello. A full breakfast is served daily on the sun porch or in the dining room. Milk and cookies in the evening, and a complimentary afternoon wine and cheese social are some of the ways we strive to make you feel welcome.
