Boar's Head Inn (Charlottesville, VA)

Many of us are just coming down from the high of Spring Break, or some lucky ducks out there are currently enjoying their Spring Break fling.  Either way, 'tis the season to reignite the vacations, trips, get-aways, etc., which reminds me of a popular family retreat that has been around for years.  Nestled in the wonder of the blue ridge mountains is the lovely Boar's Head Inn.

The Boar's Head Inn has that charm of the olden, golden years and is the perfect place to stay when visiting Monticello, Charlottesville, or the University of Virginia.

They still have the original keys from way back when, rumored to have been used by some of the earlier guests of the Inn, namely Thomas Jefferson and George Washington.

 And don't forget the boar...

 There are a couple of cute shops on site:
