The Silver Thatch Inn

(434) 978-4686


The Historic Silver Thatch Inn is nestled in the community of Hollymead in Charlottesville, Virginia. A beautiful Colonial house on 1-1/2 acres, the Inn is the perfect setting for business meetings, small weddings and elopements, rehearsal dinners, family and friend reunions as well as bridal and baby shower lunches.

Outside caterering may be required for larger events as the restaurant component of the Inn closed in 2013.

The original building dates to 1780, with additions in 1812, 1937, and 1985, Silver Thatch was formerly known as Hollymead Farm and served as the home of BFD Runk, Dean of Men at UVA, for over 30 years.

We encourage a day away from the office for team building and brainstorming, budget and finance sessions, or to simply get away from the work site for a day of jeans and T-shirts and get down to business in a comfortable, relaxed atmosphere. Our staff will make even the toughest business agendas enjoyable. Private meeting rooms can seat from 20 to 42 comfortably. Full or half day rates as well as breakfast, lunch and break options are available. Attendees staying over may choose from seven comfortable, well appointed rooms complete with flat screen TVs, complimentary Wireless connection, bottled spring water, soft bathrobes, Greenwich Bay bath amenities, irons and ironing boards, and a delicious breakfast are all included in your stay. Our Business Traveler's Program is available Sunday through Thursday.

Terri can assist with planning your event as well as arranging fun activities for out-of-town guests; golf, spa appointments, hot air ballooning, wine or beer tastings, or a day of history touring the homes of Thomas Jefferson, James Monroe, and James Madison. Terri's an awesome organizer of all things fun, especially where food is involved!

Silver Thatch Inn is a short 2 hours from Dulles Airport or Washington DC, 1-1/2 hours from Richmond, and less than 10 minutes from Charlottesville Albemarle Regional Airport.
