I had been here twice before, including bringing my parents and whole family (including siblings and spouses) to celebrate my parents special wedding anniversary a number of years ago. It has always been wonderful. On this visit, my partner and I came for what turned out to be a very lovely and special weekend. The breakfasts were great. Our room,... More

We just went for dinner! We arrived a little early, so we sat on the porch and enjoyed the lovely evening. The decor is nifty and interesting without being stuffy - I enjoyed looking at their cook books, antique furniture and beautiful dinnerware! It was so tempting to fill up on the home made bread with butter! My filet was... More

This historic Inn sits on 80 acres of lush rolling hills and fields with a mountain view. Lovely gardens and porches to relax on and enjoy the scenery. Beautifully furnished with delicious gourmet breakfast. Dinner was required for one night and was delightful. The room was very comfortable and there is no tv to be found. So refreshing and relaxing!

If you need high tea and a chatty host, this isn't the B&B for you, however if you want all the comforts of home that "beams you up and back" to the 1700's, then you found you place to relax, unwind, and even get some work done on free Wifi. We were greeted by Suzanne , the manager and she... More

We waited 45 minutes to check in, which was never acknowledged other than their meeting ran 5 minutes longer than expected. The property is magnificent. The bed was comfortable. The shower tub was never cleaned. No replenishment of creamer (which was rancid) for their coffee machine. They have a policy that you must dine at least one night during your... More

Our daughter was married earlier in the evening, at a small B&B in Orange. The Meander was suggested to us by them. I checked out their website and discovered a beautiful, historic plantation that appealed to us (we are history buffs). The staff was very helpful and nice. They also allowed us to take some intimate wedding photos around the... More

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
