“Peaceful Getaway”
Reviewed May 6, 2014

My in-laws gave my wife and I the gift of a night at the Belle Grove Plantation and they could not have picked a more perfect getaway for us. Michelle greeted us at the door, gave us an incredibly informative tour of the plantation and its grounds and showed us to our suite, which was breathtaking. The huge, comfortable bed, the full sized bath tub and a parlor with games, books and an overall relaxed atmosphere were among the amenities we enjoyed the most. After a peaceful night's rest, we were able to enjoy a private breakfast in our room (our choice, you can also choose to dine in the main dining hall), where Brett and Michelle oversaw the serving of an exquisite meal. I was truly sorry we had to leave, as it was one of the nicest traveling experiences we've ever had. I highly recommend Belle Grove to anyone looking for the true definition of a "peaceful getaway."

My husband and I enjoyed an amazing stay at Belle Grove Plantation on the Rappahanock River in VA! We were royally treated and especially enjoyed our early arrival and getting such a great tour of all the guest rooms prior to the arrival of others. We truly could unplug from all the hectic parts of our daily lives and enjoyed feeling like both one of the family and simultaneously like a treasured guest. The loving care this home receives from Michelle and Brett reflects their experience and dedication to making your time there so memorable. Michelle's knowledge of the history of the home and her ongoing research into its occupants and furnishings is impressive. The Turner Suite was an excellent choice for our anniversary celebration, and we look forward to future stays, perhaps during one of the special events they have scheduled that reflects the home's great presidential, revolutionary and civil war era stories. A true gem located a short drive from the Washington metro area and great historic and natural beauty in Tidewater Virginia!

Room Tip: Turner Suite is steps from a second story portico where beautiful river sunsets await you

Brett and Michelle are true to the southern hospitality that a plantation setting evokes. Belle Grove is the epitome of of Virginia Tidewater plantation...with the history of James Madison, the Civil War, and the list of families who call her home. We were most impressed with Was Michelle's culinary expertise...her breakfasts were nothing short of 5-stars. We will be back!!!

My wife,daughter and myself stayed at Belle Grove for the first warm weekend of this year. The house's architecture, furnishings and history provide a level of interest and comfort for all of us. The gracious hospitality and superb quality of food offered by Michelle and Brett was unsurpassed. All this, plus the chance of perhaps glimpsing or hearing from some of the spirits of past residents of the property all blended together for an excellent time. Truly recommended as a place to relax and enjoy.

My husband and I stayed at the Belle Grove Plantation in King George, VA on a spur of the moment trip for my husband's birthday. We were very impressed with the property upon driving up to the house. I had recently broken my foot and both Michelle and Brett were very helpful and accommodating to my needs. They even cooked dinner for us that night since I was exhausted from traveling that day. Both Michelle and Brett made both myself and my husband feel at home the minute we walked in the door. We stayed in the Conway room and it is absolutely beautiful with antique furnishings. The home has been meticulously restored to its former glory while accommodating modern luxuries while maintaining its historical integrity. It is very obvious that Michelle and Brett did a lot of research and placed a great deal of thought and love into restoring Belle Grove to the beautiful plantation that she is. I think you will not be disappointed booking a stay with Michelle and Brett and you will not find a more decadent breakfast.

Wife and I was looking for a near by BB to escape from work and home. Wow, we nailed it! Brett and Michelle provided the best hospitality! The Madison suite is our favorite! Breakfast was off the charts! The bed was like sleeping on a cloud! The tour and history lesson was very intriguing and informative. We loved our stay so much, we convinced our parents to make reservations ASAP! Lastly, we highly recommend the Belle Grove Plantation and look forward to our next stay in the near future!

Thank you,

T’was Two Nights Before Christmas


T’was two nights before Christmas and quiet as a mouse, two strangers stirred in James Madison’s house.

The stockings were hung, decorations were there and the tree was adorned with natural fare.

No children were present, just Ma and I there, but rest we both needed or else we’d despair.

We arrived at 5:30 were met with much grace, unloaded our luggage then took a tour of the place.

The furnishings were marvelous, the décor was just great, selections were made from Sherwin-Williams color plate.

A snack was provided that ate more like a meal, while Michelle’s history lecture was given with zeal.

We changed and then headed to Port Royal for dinner, a meal that did nothing to make us much slimmer.

Night came and we slept in our bed with no chatter, no need to jump up to see what was the matter.

A wonderful breakfast followed our long winter’s slumber, mascarpone pancakes we ate, not counting the number.

The pancakes were topped with cinnamon and cherries, a wonderful beginning to Christmas Eve full of merries.

We hated to leave, but our leave was required with our bodies well rested and no longer tired.

Our bellies were full, our senses were filled, and we’ll never forget our James Madison thrill.

They heard us exclaim as we drove out of sight, we could not imagine a better Christmas Eve’s eve night.

Room Tip: There are four rooms, all are wonderful! There are no words to describe how wonderful this experien...
