My husband and I (together with our two Golden Retrievers) spent four nights in the Summer Kitchen at Meander Plantation as part of our trip to the Charlottesville area. We absolutely loved it.
As you come up the long driveway to this mansion on a hill, it fells like you are going back in time to an earlier America, to be part of the history that is so present in this part of Virginia. George Washington (and his troops) really did sleep here.
Meander Plantation is the real deal...it is very old. The occasional cracks in the walls and sloping floors demonstrate that these beautiful buildings have been part of this historic community for well over 200 years.
In spite of its age and its quirks, Meander is very comfortable and welcoming. The bed was great, the fireplaces kept us cozy and warm. Starched white table cloths, good bed linens and new, comfortable seating provide a kind of opulence in the old home.
The breakfasts were very good. Suzanne and Suzie were helpful and congenial hosts, patient with our questions and our two silly dogs. We roamed Meander's grounds, hiked to the river and visited the horses. It was restful and quiet. I think that we got a very small glimpse of southern life at the time of the Revolution.
We'll be back.
