The Lafayette Hotel is a historic gem that has served the community of Stanardsville
since the mid 1840’s. The embedded roots of the building trace back to uses as a hotel
and hospital. In more recent times (2005), it was purchased by the current owners who
named their beloved dream “The Lafayette Inn & Restaurant”, which better defined the
business they wanted to pursue. They successfully maintained the full property
spanning over 22,000 square feet. The main building of the Inn offers 5 large suites, a
large commercial kitchen, dining room with 2 gas fireplaces and a 40-person seating
capacity. Also within the main building, the room nicknamed the “tavern” is across from
the main dining room awaiting 24 guests to wine and dine or have a drink prior to
dinner. The ability to turn that nickname into reality would not take much, be the “local
bar” or offer locals a private dining space. A short distance from the main Inn, still on the property sits
“Dicey’s Cottage”. Whether a private suite for guests or a separate cottage to keep for
yourself, you or guests will enjoy a kitchenette, master bedroom, renovated bathroom,
and separate living room area.
The Inn is a staple within the community, winning Best of Greene Award for “Best
Restaurant” the accolades are received by the Inn year over year. From the City of
Stanardsville, Greene County, and the State of Virginia, awards and comments range
