University Of Virginia Lands on Architectural Digest's Top Ten List for College Campuses

It is so wonderful living in the Hollow, among all the beauty of the Blue Ridge and surrounded by the majesty of nature, but, now and again, we are reminded of how lucky we are to be so close to C'ville and all the cultural attractions nearby, especially Monticello, Thomas Jefferson's mountain home as well as Mr. Jefferson's vision of an academic village called the University of Virginia. 

So we were proud (but not surprised) to learn that the University of Virginia has landed on a popular architectural magazine's top 10 list for the best architecture among college campuses.  Architectural Digest cited the Rotunda at the University of Virginia and its historic Lawn, which the magazine says is "a vibrant, accommodating gathering spot." Although the Rotunda is currently undergoing renovations, you can still literally walk in the footsteps of the man who wrote the Declaration of Independence! Of course, in addition to serving as our third President and known for drafting the Virginia Statute for Religious Freedom, Thomas Jefferson founded the University and designed the Rotunda, modeling it after Rome's Pantheon.

If you're thinking about heading to the C'ville this weekend to check out an architectural feat or hang out in a vibrant accommodating gathering spot (of which there are many), you'll probably need  a place to stay.  And, if you're looking for a quaint little bed and breakfast close by, The Inn at Sugar Hollow Farm has a lovely room just for you.  Come see us!
