Nestled in the Hollymead neighborhood… is the historic Silver Thatch Inn, a beautiful rambling farmhouse dating back to 1780. Once known as Hollymead Farm  & occupying over 300 acres, (now the community of Hollymead) the Inn now enjoys only 1 acre, which is fine with me! Located close enough to the heart of Charlottesville (a short 6 miles) for fabulous entertainment & sports, yet far enough for guests to be able to enjoy the quiet of this bucolic neighborhood setting to relax, walk, jog, chat over a glass of wine or local brew, and regenerate.  And because we’re pet friendly, Fido will enjoy the walks as well. The Inn, its history &  location appealed to us in 1998,  leaving the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles and Northern California behind for the starry nights and sweet smell of the Blue Ridge Mountains. It was and remains, perfect. When we arrived in 1998, Virginia wine was in its infancy, yet competing for and winning the gold over its older west coast siblings.  Breweries and cideries mere glimmers in the eyes of their founders. The music scene was pretty good, and it was ‘Dave who?’  Fresh from Los Angeles and a crazy good food scene, we were 2 chefs longing for the talents of the California chefs & their ‘fresh food is best food’ approach we’d left behind in LA. Welcome to 2017! Virginia has grown to be the 5th largest wine producing state in the country, producing world class wines with vineyards that put the Napa Valley to shame (and I’m from there…) Our breweries and cideries are setting the standards of excellence; our distilleries are making Kentucky shiver in its bourbon boots; our culinary community is above first class, uniting farmers with our incredible chefs for a true farm-to-table lifestyle. And Dave Matthews? The members and founder of the Dave Matthews Band are legendary in not only their talent, but their generosity and community spirit. Home of Thomas Jefferson, James Monroe, James Madison a hop and a skip away, stellar wines & craft brews, & food & history.  So much waiting for you in C’ville & the Silver Thatch Inn.
