Our Guest Rooms

Dinsmore Inn @ The University offers nine guest rooms, each tastefully decorated.  All of our guest rooms have a private bathroom, and each room has guest-controlled air conditioning, satellite TV, wireless internet, robes and all the luxury amenities you expect in a boutique inn. While six of the nine guestrooms have fireplaces, they are historic coal-burning fireboxes and are not operational.

Each overnight guest at The Dinsmore receives complimentary BRUNCH at Farm Bell Kitchen (alcoholic beverages not included).

Our Rooms

  • Dinsmore

    We named this room (and the Inn) after Thomas Jefferson’s master carpenter, James Dinsmore, who designed and built this Charlottesville home. The room is located on the second floor of the house, facing Main St. There are four large windows across the front of the room, providing ample natural light. The private bathroom has a claw-foot soaking tub with separate shower.

    The Dinsmore Room was the original master bedroom when the home was built as a private residence in 1817. The room also connects (through a privacy double-door) to the Jefferson Suite. Often when families are traveling together, they reserve both the Dinsmore Room and Jefferson Suite.

    Room Features: High ceilings, original windows and hardwood floors, high speed wireless Internet, television with Dish, white noise machine, remote controlled heating/cooling, hairdryer, iron, cozy robes

  • Library Loft

    This suite features a king-size bed in the attic loft, above the second floor sitting room and full bath.  We added an ensuite private staircase to the room, so that guests can access the vaulted-ceiling, exposed brick loft bedroom, which also has a second half bathroom upstairs.

    This suite has a sitting room and full bath on the second floor, and a vaulted ceiling king bed and half bath on the third floor.
