Keswick Hall: Charlottesville, VA

The Colonel and I spent the Fourth of July weekend at Keswick Hall, just outside of Charlottesville for golf, good food and relaxation in a gorgeous, bucolic setting. You may click on the pictures for even finer detail.

All rooms are individually appointed with period antiques.

This mantel clock was located on the mantel of the fireplace.

I loved the frame on this hunt art which was located in the bath.

Dinner, in Fossett's, named for Thomas Jefferson's cook, was served on china which featured a Thomas Jefferson cipher.

George Washington stopped in to the tavern for some libations on the Fourth.

This little pug greets visitors upon arrival.

Hallways are filled with English antiques.

Balloon rides were available.

A view from our room of the gardens and course.

All cords were wrapped in fabric. The Laura Ashley influence was present.

The infinity swimming pool is barely visible here.

A view of the manor from the course.

The armoire in our room had beautiful inlaid wood.

AS you might expect, I became stuck on the plate photo and it is like you said nothing else... one track mind to the dinner service! :) Hope you are well!

Bh...and beauties they were! A carefully selected blue on the contour gave the entire dining area a lavish look.

Yes. Me too. All that history and all I can think of is, wow those plates are beautiful...
