Note Bene

Choose from an array of meeting venues, from the classic 19th Century drawing room to the luxurious and private wine cellar to the sun-splashed verandah to the classic Virginia farmhouse.
Fine Dining On Site
The culinary team, lead by Executive Chef Dean Maupin and Executive Pastry Chef Erin Maupin, offers a collection of dishes for you to create your own Charlottesville fine dining experience. Choose from a multi-course combination of worldly flavors to please your palate. Select wines from Clifton's award-winning cellar for each course.
