Why Audrey Daggett chose Earlysville
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.
What makes this House unique
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!

My stay was epic. Looking forward to booking it again.
We expected to use the bath house as an additional bedroom but the mildew smell was too strong. Garbage had been left in the compactor without a plastic and it was very smelly. We called the phone number and the cleaning company sent someone over - also a few dirty dishes. I expected it to be clean with a $250 cleaning fee. The house is spacious and filled with a lot of decorative items.
We did not meet the owners.
We did enjoy our stay but I paid a premium price but didn’t feel we received what was advertised.
We absolutely loved staying at The White Elephant Inn! Everything about the house was cozy and also beautiful. The pool area and hot tub was unreal and so relaxing. We would definitely recommend this house to anyone visiting the Charlottesville area!
Gorgeous, inviting, great for entertaining and group stays!
The house and owners are both amazing. Lots of little amenities and conveniences provided. Check in and out were very easy. The pool area is so relaxing and secluded but great for entertaining as well. The owners provided great information on the area and were very welcoming! Our group had a wonderful weekend. Can't say enough good things!
Perfect place for our whole family attending a wedding in C'ville! Room for everyone and great place to relax by the pool. Wish we could have stayed a month!
Awesome location for a quick weekend getaway.
The White Elephant Inn was the perfect place to stay for our Charlottesville girls' weekend! We loved the fact that each bedroom has its own bathroom in the house, and the kitchen was very spacious and perfect for our quick trip. The best part about the house hands down was the backyard and pool though! It seriously made out trip 10x better. The house was also a very short drive from downtown and near lots of grocery stores and restaurants, which made getting Ubers and food very convenient. We were able to get to some wineries as well with a short, 25-minute drive too. Perfect location for our weekend and would highly recommend!
Your group was fabulous! Thanks for the kind words and we would love to have you back! The pool and poolhouse are really perfect for entertaining and relaxing!
