A bucolic, Four Diamond resort, the Boar's Head serves the University's meeting, conference, and recruiting needs.
The beautiful rolling Virginia countryside on which Boar’s Head is situated has a rich history dating back some 280 years and includes ties to Thomas Jefferson. In 1734, the 3,000-acre tract was part of Virginia’s first land grant. In 1759, Terrell’s Ordinary, an inn welcoming westward travelers, opened at the exact location of the present day Boar’s Head resort.
In 1959, John Rogan, a UVA graduate, and John Rhea built the Boar's Head Inn, incorporating a treasured gristmill from the neighboring Birdwood property; and after carefully dismantling and numbering each piece, had it reconstructed at its present site.
Today, the resort boasts 175 guest rooms and suites, 22,000 square feet of meeting, wedding and event space, a spa, four restaurants plus extensive sports and fitness facilities.
