The Destination
Tucked away in the rolling hills of central Virginia, the tiny town of Stanardsville puts more on the table than you'd expect from the population of 500. For starters, it sits less than 10 miles from the border of Shenandoah National Park and 20 miles from the bustling college town of Charlottesville, with a number of wineries, antique shops, and local artisans in between—not to mention historic sites like Monticello and Montpelier. But you needn't stray far from Main Street to revel in the bounty of the region: Just look to The Lafayette Inn, a six-room bed and breakfast in the heart of downtown.

The Digs
Built in 1840, this three-story inn—with a charming brick façade, picture windows, and white wooden columns—is renowned as one of the best restaurants in the region, garnering awards like "Best of the Blue Ridge" and "Virginia's Restaurant of the Year." Before the feast begins, check in to your suite, where each Internet-equipped room features lovingly preserved antiques, a queen bed, hardwood floors, a sitting area with TV, and a private bathroom. Some even offer the roaring comfort of a gas fireplace.

The Diversions
After checking in and settling down, the feasting awaits: You'll be treated to a sumptuous ten-course tasting dinner, complete with beverage pairings. Chef Alan—who is also your accommodating innkeeper—crafts menus that include traditional Southern cuisine as well as international favorites prepared in a Southern style, making for a completely unique array of dishes. From appetizers and entrées to desserts, this special event remains the inn's most popular experience, a decade-long tradition that more than a thousand guests before you have enjoyed.
