Sarah and I stayed at the Belle Grove Plantation B&B the weekend of May 30-June 1, 2014. I proposed to the love of my life watching the sun set over the Rappahannock River. This B&B, the birthplace of James Madison, took you back to the 18th-19th Century. Upon turning onto the road down to the Plantation Mansion, you cannot help but thinking of the Movie "Gone With The Wind". The road was lined with tall trees on both sides. If you are a history buff, this is the place to see. All the rooms are furnished with period pieces. The Inn-Keepers, Brett and Michelle were such great hostesses, making our stay very memoriable. Oh, lets not forget Hurley their precious dog. We spent evening on the back porch on rockers just watching the River flow by. The breakfasts were extra special. We will return!
