These Virginia Bed and Breakfast Inns Offer Acres of Peacefulness
When you're ready for a weekend getaway, the kind that begs for a complete recharge, look no further than these two outstanding Virginia bed and breakfast inns! With nothing but acres of tranquility and gorgeous mountains, each offers their own slice of heaven.
Located in two different parts of the state, both offer different kinds of ambiance to replenish an overworked soul. Both are extraordinary!
The Inn at Meander Plantation
Originally built in the 1700's, the Inn at Meander Plantation is steeped in history. Incredibly beautiful, this 80-acre getaway is the perfect retreat for those seeking relaxation, solitude, and fine Virginia wine! Yes, there are plenty of wineries in the area to enjoy, so take advantage of it!
Located in Locust Dale, VA, you can also just enjoy losing yourself on the plantation property. Stroll the formal boxwood gardens, wander through the woods and fields, and enjoy bluebirds and hummingbirds along the back porch gardens. For a summertime cool off, go wading in the Robinson River or bicycle around the numerous country lanes.
And you can always pull up one of the Adirondack chairs and revel in the spectacular Blue Ridge Mountains. Sip afternoon tea, walk in the lush gardens or enjoy time in a rocker. It's up to you!
In the colonial mansion, also called the Manor House, you'll find 9-over-9 windows that offer incredible views of rare and grand trees, ancient brick sidewalks, and breathtaking mountain sunsets.
Get to know the other guests and mingle with them in the same parlor that entertained General Lafayette and Thomas Jefferson.
