Great Location and Charm
Reviewed 12 September, 2021
This is the second time we’ve stayed at this B&B. The rooms are nice as well as the staff. We had room Three which is at the front of the House. It was spacious, but the bathroom was small, which is to be expected of an historic Inn. The afternoon wine and cheese introduced us to other travelers. Breakfast was always ready on time and consisted of yogurts, granola, fresh fruit and various breads. There is a lovely wrap-around porch in which to sit outside and eat. There is a large building under construction behind the Inn, which takes away from the ambience of the area. The construction wasn’t noisy, just something to see. The Inn has a updated their sidewalks and laid a lot of concrete at the back for future seating, I imagine. Parking is the back of the buildings, included with your rate.
Southern charm and old-school hospitality

This bed and breakfast does things the right way - you are welcomed as family, treated well and it feels like home after only one night. Throw in the charm and cool factor of a quirky older house with a checkered history, near the center of Charlottesville, and you have the recipe for a very enjoyable stay.
Hollis checked us in and was a great source of information about restaurants (dozens within a 10 minute walk), local attractions (including a Saturday farmer's market right across the street, excellent) and just generally a good host that got things off to a great start.
We had one of the top-floor rooms. It was clean, the bed was very comfortable, the room was well appointed and the bathroom was stocked with a full array of amenities. There were enough towels and the only drawback was having to stoop at some points because of odd roof angles. The occasional train at night didn't bother me.
The complimentary wine-and-cheese offering every afternoon was always well stocked with a variety of edibles besides cheese, and a great tea selection. Some of the wines appeared to be local vintage, an unexpected bonus. The continental breakfast in the morning had a good variety of locally-baked breads (the banana is excellent), along with granola, fruit and other healthy fare. The coffee was excellent. Eating out on the spacious front porch and watching the city wake up was a great way to start the day. There is a well-stocked library, including board games, if you want a quiet evening in.
We plan to stay here on our next visit to Charlottesville as we further explore the area.
Great Inn, Great location and great staff

We booked a mid week getaway at 200 South St Inn. We loved it. From the moment we walked in the door, we were treated like family. Flora checked us in early and offered suggestions for lunch while our room was readied. It was a short walk to the historic main street mall which had many cute shops and eateries. After eating, we went back to check our room and were delighted. Appointed beautifully with period antique furnishings. Large and clean. The evening wine and cheese social was nice. We met some fellow travelers and enjoyed sitting on the large porch. Breakfast was nice too. Our get away in C'Ville was made verry memorable by South Stree Inn. Thanks
Charm in the Center of Charlottesville

The Inn is well maintained and comfortable, and it is within easy walking distance of all the attractions in the center of downtown Charlottesville. The hosts are welcoming, and all the members of the staff are scrupulous about observing best sanitation and distancing practices during the Covid-19 pandemic. Breakfasts are simple and continental in style, but the offerings are excellent, and there are many choices of areas inside and outside on the gracious porches for eating - or for having a glass of Virginia wine in the evening. Our room (number 8) was on the second floor and was both quiet and spacious. We stayed three nights and could have stayed happily for much longer.
At present the Inn is re-doing its parking area and back garden. Loading and unloading can be done at the front door, but cars must be parked in the Water Street Public Garage about a block away. It is a safe and secure facility and the Inn provides vouchers for free parking, but anyone who has walking difficulties should be aware of the temporary use of the public garage.
Complimentary wine/ cheese, warm cookies, and breakfast buffet are great!

Attractive bed and breakfast with warm hospitality. Greeted by friendly and responsive desk manager and large cookie jar filled with oversized chocolate chip oatmeal cookies, freshly baked. Complimentary and unlimited wine/assorted cheese/fresh fruit at 5 PM. Complimentary breakfast buffet with sweet breads, toast, coffee cake, yogurt, homemade granola, fresh fruit, fresh squeezed OJ, gourmet coffee, among other items. Rooms and bathrooms nicely decorated and clean. We initially stayed in room 18, but due to noise we were moved to the second floor of the main house, and that room was very quiet. If I find myself in Charlottesville again I will definitely stay here again.
