The Inn at Court Square offers guest rooms and suites in two adjacent houses. The Butler-Norris house has five guest rooms and a dining room where breakfast is served daily. The Molly Johnson House has four suites and one small guest room. The lower level is also home to DeLoach Design’s Charlottesville office and DeLoach Antiques, where guests can browse an eclectic mix of antiques and mid-century modern pieces. More traditional antiques are for sale throughout The Inn’s Living Room and Guestrooms. Both houses face Stonewall Jackson Park and Court Square.
Edward Butler, a signer of the Albemarle Declaration of Independence, built the structure circa 1785. In 1791, Butler conveyed the property to his son, James, who, along with his wife Susannah (later Fowler), sold the property to John Kelly in 1808. Kelly subsequently presented it to his son-in-law, Opie Norris, whose estate held the property until 1880. Over the next 137 years, the Butler-Norris House (as it was then known) has housed a variety of businesses. Entering the house, you will be struck by the excellent examples of 18th century woodwork, including Georgian mantels with pilasters and dentils.
“A splendid four-poster island of pale linens rearing up magnificently from the smooth wood floor, it was the kind of bed you need steps to climb into, and who could resist that?”
