Keswick Hall and Golf Club is where the ease of a country home meets the luxury of a fine hotel. With its numerous awards and stunning location in the Blue Ridge Mountains, this estate welcomes guests to enjoy the finer things at a leisurely pace.
Keswick Hall & Golf Club has occupied the emerald hills outside of Charlottesville, Virginia, for over a century. The Italianate-style estate was built in 1912 as a private home, and later converted to a prestigious country club. Guests today experience this member of the celebrated Historic Hotels of America collective with a balance of modern comforts and classic southern charm.
Part of that charm is the country home ambiance of the hotel. The rooms and suites at Keswick Hall exude a relaxing calm through light and airy colors, rich textiles, and cozy furnishings. Custom handmade beds by Hypnos come fitted with Frette linens to ensure a restful night’s sleep. Modern conveniences are present but understated, and include iHome docking stations and wireless Internet access. Outside your windows, views of the golf course, gardens, and countryside remind you of the activities you can enjoy in your privileged surroundings.
With the Blue Ridge Mountains as your view, the grounds of Keswick Hall are your outdoor playground. Try your hand at archery, croquet, tennis, or enjoy one of the three swimming pools at the estate. The on-site golf course with award-winning “Full Cry” design by Pete Dye is also an option for guests who wish to play a round during their stay.
