Across from the Rappahannock River, the Belle Grove Plantation Bed and Breakfast is an escape into Southern elegance. Antiques fill the mansion where President James Madison was born – and you’re welcome to afternoon tea in the parlor, but allow us to spill the tea. This mansion is said to be on one of the most haunted plantations in the state. Join a ghost hunting tour if you dare and when you feel a chill run across your spine – it’s best to just assume that it’s the cool Virginia breeze.

Pack your walking shoes when you stay at Hampton Inn. This budget-friendly hotel is only a 20-minute jaunt to the old-growth forests of Caledon State Park. Spot eagles soaring through the air and wave to Maryland across the river. Kick those hiking boots off back at the hotel and head into downtown Dahlgren to rustle up some dinner or grab fast food from across the street – and fit a quick dip in the pool before bed.

Country Inn and Suites positions you for a lovely drive down the Potomac River, tracing the Virginia/Maryland border as you drive. A hot breakfast will fuel you up and we suggest snagging some coffee and cookies for the road. Make your way down to Colonial Beach – then down to the birthplace of the first President of the United States, George Washington. Go shell hunting at Fossil Beach then make it back to Country Inn for another handful of cookies to take to your room.

Find a warm welcome into Virginia at Hampton Inn and Suites. The Virginia Welcome Center is only footsteps from a king suite with a Waterpik showerhead in the bathroom. The Kenmore Mansion and Mary Washington House are great attractions to visit while in Fredericksburg – though we’re privy to hanging by the Rappahannock River. Follow the Heritage Trail to Old Mill Park where afternoon picnics, sunbathing and swimming are the best ways to spend a summer here in Virginia.
