Crozet needs a hotel. The County of Albemarle, recognizing this, “Albemarle County will take steps to make itself eligible for a state financing program that could support the construction of hotels.”
Catlin said the county’s economic development team is supportive of having a small hotel, one that keeps the character of Crozet intact, while filling the critical deficiency for adequate lodging. She estimated a future hotel would have between 30 to 60 rooms.

- What’s the status of the proposed hotel in Old Trail?
- Could Crozet support two hotels? (I think yes, so long as they’re small and Crozet-ish)
- Where would the second one go? (Presumably in the site of the former Barnes Lumberyard)
- Will Crozet be further fractured?
In a sentence – we’ll go back. On a father’s day lark, my wife and I went to Restoration and were impressed with the menu and the fact that they have only local beers on tap.
The latest entry in the Old Trail clubhouse restaurant space is Restoration. The renovation is a nice one; next time I stop in I’ll go for dinner and get some pictures.
The Crozet Gazette noted in April:
Local restauranteurs Andrew Watson and Kelley Tripp, who have been involved in six successful restaurants including Boylan Heights and Mellow Mushroom on The Corner in Charlottesville, will launch a new restaurant at the Old Trail Golf Club later this spring. The restaurant is designed to serve golfers, host weddings and events, and welcome families from Crozet and beyond.
Restoration’s phone number is 434-823-1841.

Thanks to Todd Barnett of the Field School/Field Camp and his team of volunteers and all the kids for today’s Crozet Triathlon. It was a great experience, just the right number of participants for the first year, and something I hope continues.
