Prospect Hill Plantation is the newest establishment to pass the Bed and Breakfast Association of Virginia’s property inspection (BBAV). Prospect Hill, set outside historic Charlottesville, VA was originally an 18th century plantation. It is now owned by Dr. Bobby and Paula Findley, who bought the Plantation in the search for a new and exciting lifestyle to follow Dr. Findley’s 25 year long career in chiropractic healthcare. The property itself includes 40-acres of land as well as the historic Manor House, which boasts eleven guest rooms and cottages complete with modern amenities. Prospect Hill prides itself on its vast history, as another one of the guest rooms is the “original cabin, built in 1699, is still used for housing overnight guests... some 314 years later” according to owner Dr. Frindley.[caption id="attachment_5233" align="alignright" width="300"] Dr. Frindley and Paula, owners of Prospect Hill Plantation Inn[/caption]
When asked why membership with the BBAV was important, Dr. Findley stated “All inns are unique in their own way and offer a compelling experience to their guest... what separates one inn from another, though, is the level of quality... both in the experience and in terms of cleanliness. Being inspected simply helps us stress that we value our guests' experience over everything else.”
Aside from offering unique guest rooms and a lavish setting by the Blue Ridge Mountains, Prospect Hill Plantation also offers a wonderful culinary experience in the form of a 4 course prix-fixe dinner for it’s guests and members of the Charlottesville community.
Dr. Findley explains that his favorite aspect of being a bed and breakfast owner is the opportunity to meet the interesting guests that are constantly staying at Prospect Hill. For the future, Dr. Findley notes that he hopes to “restore Prospect Hill to its former glory as one of the premier dining and lodging destinations in central Virginia!”
BBAV President Heidi Lanford is extremely happy about Prospect Hill’s addition to the Association. When asked about her thoughts regarding Prospect Hill, Lanford explained “it is so wonderful to have such a historic, and beautiful property pass our property inspection. Prospect Hill is another great example of the impressive establishments that are associated with BBAV.”
