Charlottesville Wedding Accommodations at Oakhurst Inn

Have friends and family coming from out of town for your upcoming wedding in Charlottesville? Then it's time to start thinking about securing local accommodations for your guests. But wait! Don't add "search for Charlottesville wedding accommodations" to your to-do list just yet because we just happen to know the perfect place for providing those out-of-towners with a warm welcome and an incredible stay in C'ville. The answer is easy: Oakhurst Inn.

Adjacent to the beautiful University of Virginia campus and serving as dormitories for students up until 2012, Oakhurst Inn & its four historic buildings have a unique place in Charlottesville history. Today, the remnants of these deep historical roots continue, but thanks to recent renovations, the inn now boasts modern updates, 27 luxurious rooms (complete with custom-made beds, hardwood floors, free Wi-Fi and more!), and wonderful on-site amenities, such as breakfasts prepared by a talented local chef, an espresso bar, libraries and common areas, and tours of nearby wineries and breweries. Needless to say, Oakhurst Inn's charm, central location in the heart of Charlottesville, and cozy comforts make it just the place for your friends & family to stay.

Oh, but we've just begun... scroll down for fabulous photos, insider details, and info about special booking perks!

To learn more about the inn, we reached out to Mike Woolard, Oakhurst's wonderful Director of Sales & Marketing, for some insight about what makes this place stand out from other, more commercial Charlottesville wedding accommodations:

"Our inn features 27 guest rooms and suites that combine contemporary upscale interiors with our historic setting. And, for those guests with kids, our suite accommodations are just the thing; lots of room and comfort. Unlike typical hotels, our spaces feel like an extension of someone's home and offers you a sense of place. Each building features multiple library/lounge common areas that are great for friends and family to enjoy fellowship and reconnect. The penthouse suite is the prefect spot for the girls and the bride to gather and share as they prepare for the special event. It offers lots of room to spread out and features a kitchenette for convenience. To top it off, our cafe is quickly becoming the place to go for breakfast or brunch. Our chef has created a fresh local menu that reflects the season and quality that has made Charlottesville a food-lover's town. Because of our location, we are so convenient to the UVA Chapel and the lawn as well as exciting night options for those still-single friends. At the end of the day, we try to convey to brides and grooms that once their guests arrive at the Oakhurst Inn, they are home."

These guys are wholeheartedly committed to showing your out-of-town guests a truly memorable experience that's like staying with family!

There are also a few special perks available to couples who book the entire inn for their guests. First, on the evening that your guests arrive, they will be treated to a complimentary welcome wine reception (perfect for showing off Charlottesville's local vineyards!). On top of that, the bride and groom will receive complimentary use of Oakhurst's meeting room, which we think would be perfect for a post-wedding farewell brunch!

Isn't Oakhurst Inn just the cutest?! But seriously, what makes it the best place to book for own-of-town guests is the awesome on-site offerings and the incomparable, at-home feel! Your guests will truly love this place as they conveniently explore everything C'ville has to offer. They might not go home!
