Southern Living Names Charlottesville, Virginia the Best College Town in the Country
As a bed and breakfast in the Blue Ridge we subscribe to several magazines. Our guests love to relax in one of our cozy chairs and peruse the latest edition of their favorite magazine. Truth be told, we love to relax in one of our cozy chairs with our favorite magazines as well (if we're fortunate enough to have the time!). Of course, Southern Living is always high up on everyone's favorite magazine list. So we were excited to see that Southern Living named Charlottesville, Virginia the best college town in the country. Living in the Hollow, among all the beauty of the Blue Ridge at the foot of the Shenandoah Park, and surrounded by the grandeur of nature, we are only a short drive to all the cultural attractions in and around C'ville, including Thomas Jefferson's vision of an academic village called the University of Virginia.
In naming C'ville the best college town to live in, Southern Living cited several features that we are aware of (and proud to live around), including "rolling vineyards, the Blue Ridge Mountains . . . [and]. . . the red brick Downtown Mall." The article goes on to point out that the area is such a special place that "it's easy to see why so many students graduate from the University of Virginia and stay put." Indeed it is! Southern Living rated towns based upon the local vibe, the variety and availability of good and affordable restaurants and shops as well as the commitment to the support of the arts. Based on such criteria, it is easy to see why C'ville tops the list.
In touting the the many attributes of the little college town down the road from the Hollow, Southern Living did not mention the many wonderful and charming inns (like ours) that thrive in this area. If the folks at Southern Living are not aware of the great B&Bs in the area, we here at The Inn at Sugar Hollow Farm cordially invite Southern Living to come to the Hollow to experience first hand this very special place.
So, whether you are on the staff of Southern Living or living in a busy metropolis nearby, if you're thinking about heading to C'ville to check out the best college town in the country, you'll probably need a place to stay. And it just so happens we know of a quaint little bed and breakfast close by that comes highly recommended. The Inn at Sugar Hollow Farm has a lovely room just for you. Come see us!
