Ok so maybe there is not much competition in Tappahannock! In fact there is not much of anything in the area, BUT this Inn is beautiful! Lovingly and carefully restored several years ago you feel transported back to the grandeur of 1860's colonial (comfortable) living. The garden is really nicely done (and it was March!) I was the only "resident" and the hosts made me feel very regal and rather "Downton Abbey" especially breakfast for one which was divine home cooked lovely food served in the dining room with silver and the full works, coming up from "down stairs".
The bed was about 4 ft high and fit for a Prince. Spotless of course. So if you are travelling the area- look no further than the Essex Inn, it's a peach with real character and style. Pamper yourself.
