Experience The Nature Of Boar's Head Resort
AAA Four Diamond Resort In Charlottesville Has It All And Keeps Getting Better

BOAR’S HEAD RESORT IS MORE THAN A HOTEL. STEEPED IN HISTORY, BOAR’S HEAD resides on 600 acres and is conveniently located in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, just minutes away from the University of Virginia (UVA) and downtown Charlottesville. Owned and operated by the UVA Foundation, Boar’s Head has a close partnership with the university and benefits from fundraising efforts that finance ongoing renovations in keeping with world-class standards.

The only AAA Four Diamond Resort in Charlottesville, Boar’s Head offers 168 elegant rooms and suites and more than 20,000 square feet of meeting facilities. Southern hospitality, elegant lodging, fine dining, luxury spa services and an array of sporting activities in nature will transform any stay into an experience. The experience will be a memorable one thanks to the completion of a $15.5 million renovation project with more upgrades to come.

The renovations, designed by Johnson Studio at Cooper Carry of Atlanta, include a relocation of the hotel’s main entrance and porte cochère for better access and flow. According to Russ Cronberg, Boar’s Head general manager, the new entrance opens to a completely reimagined lobby and the roomy lounge areas are now adorned with artwork from area artists.

“Our guests walk into a totally transformed area filled with natural elements, bookshelves adorned with historic reference materials and updated furnishings, making it a truly unique gathering place,” he said.

In addition to the lobby and entrance renovations, Johnson Studio transformed the Mill Room restaurant. While retaining its signature feature of old beams and fireplace, the restaurant now offers an extensive wine cellar and a spacious bar area in a casual, family-friendly atmosphere. The adjoining terrace room offers intimate and formal dining. The restaurant also has a separate entrance that allows diners to bypass the registration area.

According to Shawn Jernigan, director of food and beverage, this new space is a carefully curated mixture of old and new.
