Restored home of the 5th president of the U. S., author of the “Monroe Doctrine”, and close friend of Thomas Jefferson. James Monroe's 550-acre estate recreates the atmosphere of a working farm. Stroll through the ancient boxwood gardens, tour the charming frame and brick house, and observe spinning…
Right next to Monticello is James Monroe’s home. It is more low key but a really nice way to spend your time at another Presidents’ home.
Thomas Jefferson wasn’t the only President to live in Charlottesville. Be sure to visit James Monroe’s Ashlawn/Highland as well. Just a few minutes beyond Monticello, it’s worth the trip.
Our Airbnb is literally across the road from Highland. It's a historic place with a museum and walking trails.
Formerly known as Ashlawn, the lovely home of our 5th U.S. president is the historic and current neighbor of Thomas Jefferson's Monticello.

“The university that TJ built. We are not biased or anything, but it’s the best university in the world. (We understand there are arguments for and against this claim.) But, truly, if you haven’t visited UVA, you should. The Lawn and Rotunda are historic and you’ll find them very beautiful and interesting, whether or not you are a ‘Hoo. Bring a picnic and a frisbee and hang out on the Lawn, gazing at the architectural genius of our third President. When you’re done, walk down to The Corner and enjoy the used bookstores, tons of restaurants and coffee shops, and soak in the vibe of this vibrant college town. We love Roots (yummy healthy bowls), Asado Wing/Taco, Boylan Heights (grass-fed burgers), and Mellow Mushroom for pizza.”
