The Ridge Apartment
An executive suite for those who want to stay a while, this apartment is the crowning glory of The Inn at 400 West High and the perfect home away from home for business travelers.
Equipped with a full kitchen, including stove and full-sized oven, refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, toaster, Cuisinart coffeemaker and coffee press, as well as cooking and dining utensils, this apartment is designed to accommodate those who want to entertain guests with their culinary capabilities or cook homemade meals for their nearest and dearest. A small dining table and chairs make the perfect place for families to come together after a long day at a Shenandoah National Park, a UVA football game, Monticello or a lovely evening out on the downtown mall.
Decorated with tasteful hints of aviary flight and fancy, this apartment’s bedroom features a cozy queen-sized bed, wireless Internet, a flat-screen cable television, and a DVD player. Nearby, a combination study-and-sunroom includes a small desk for working, reading, or postcard writing and a full-sized platform bed with coiled mattress that folds out to create extra sleeping space. With French doors opening onto your rooftop garden terrace where a table and chairs await your guests and a good bottle of wine, this room gives visitors a chance to contemplate the picturesque views of southern small city life.
But such vistas are, quite frankly, dwarfed by the radiance of a 1921 stained glass window, brought over all the way from Florence, Italy, that elevates this apartment into a work of art. Located in, of all places, the bathroom, this awe-inspiring window is complemented by an arched ceiling with exposed wooden beams and a large, bright luxury shower. This could be your only chance to not only bask but bathe in the presence of such glorious glasswork!
$275 – $375 (sleeps 4 guests)
