We stayed here over the Valentine's Day weekend and had a great time. From the time we checked in, the staff was very accommodating from requests for ice and glasses for the champagne we brought to showing us to our room. We stayed in the Robinson room with the wood fireplace. Despite it being one of the coldest weekends all... More

We love inns of character, where you know where you are in the world. The Inn at Meander Plantation is exceptionally redolent of old Virginia, with stunning architecture, a gorgeous setting, almost entirely uncorrupted views of the foothills of the Blue Ridge. The Inn is only a few miles to Orange, which has a couple of fantastic antiques shops (visit... More

The Inn at Meander is a great choice if you are seeking an historic inn in a quiet location. The friendly innkeepers and grounds make the Inn worth a visit. It is a bit of a drive to go to dinner, Montpelier, or visit some fine wineries, but it is not too far away from these neighboring destinations. The Jefferson... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here in late August, a Sun/Mon evening as part of a romantic getaway in Virginia wine country. We found and secured our reservation online, an easy and seamless process. We initially reserved the Madison Cottage, but we received an e-mail a few days before arrival noting that room was already booked and inviting us to... More

My wife and I just spent our first anniversary here at the Inn and were not disappointed. The summer kitchen room where we stayed was an enormous two story suite, essentially a private country house completely separate from the main inn and restaurant. Note that this is a very old house. While the bathroom may be updated with a new... More

I am not usually a bed and breakfast fan but this charming Inn has many amenities and excellent service. Of course it is a century old home in a beautiful setting but is updated where needed and very clean. The innkeepers are hospitable and enjoy what they do. Each person is made to feel as if they are their personal... More

Based upon many "glowing reviews" we selected Meander Plantation as an anniversary celebration getaway. We found it quite disappointing. The food was outstanding, both breakfast and the "REQUIRED" dinner reservation (which seemed a little strange) but the place is getting "a little tired" and was in need of some general maintenance and grounds needed a little TLC. Tree branches needed... More

“Frankly Scarlett,” the Inn at Meander Plantation is the best. From the first sight of the Plantation, the history and provenance of this fine old plantation home is almost palpable. I expected to find Mr. Jefferson or General Washington seated in the parlor. The scent of boxwood fills the air as you walk to the entrance. The Inn features true... More

What a great find! Lovely property and location! The owners were more than accommodating in making our reservation and arranging a couple's massage for us during our stay. We greatly enjoyed dinner at the Inn one evening. The pace was just perfect and the food was outstanding! We also enjoyed the optional wine pairings of all Virginia wines! Breakfast was... More
