About the Property

The most amazing Infinity Pool with dining deck, pavilion and hot tub. Also included is the Pool House with full kitchen, laundry (beach towels provided), Queen Sleep Sofa (operates as the 5th bedroom when needed) and a full bath. The Pavilion provides covered outdoor entertaining and relaxing including a dining table, cushioned seating area, and both charcoal and gas grills.

The Pool and Pavilion make a beautiful backdrop to host events, including Engagement Parties, Weddings, Bridesmaid Luncheons, Wine Tours and more! Please contact us for event rates. Parties and Special events are prohibited without prior written consent from the Owners.

While the property offers many amenities, and the caretakers (pool and hot tub maintenance) live on the property, we consider The White Elephant Inn to be a Do It Yourself vacation rental.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: Bill and Kathy Daggett purchased their Earlysville home in early 2000. Bill, after attending the University of Virginia, became an architect, currently focusing on humane animal shelter designs. Kathy, born and raised in Kansas, arrived in Charlottesville in the late 80's. A former insurance executive, she is now owner of Farley's Bar & Grill in her home town of Lindsborg, Kansas.

Why the Owner Chose Earlysville, VA, USA:
With it's proximity to the airport and quiet country setting the home is a perfect choice for group and family vacations. Our close proximity to Charlottesville and Albemarle county allows you easy access to shopping, wine tours, UVA games and all the beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains. After their 5 children moved on to make their own families Bill and Kathy decided they would like to share their expansive home with people looking for a whole family alternative to traditional hotels.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Besides the obvious bonus of having a private pool and hot tub, The White Elephant offers an affordable alternative to families and those looking to have a more private group experience than traditional hotels can offer. With two full size kitchens and two outdoor grills the possibilities for a family style experience with all the amenities a home has to offer are yours for the taking!
