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.

Red Roof Inn Dahlgren

The pet-friendly Red Roof Inn is essentially a Red Woof Inn for dogs, too – this hotel lets you treat your pup to snuggles in bed, though we think the whirlpool tub is best experienced without a furry friend. Barnesfield Park is closest, but the Colonial Beach Dog Park is the best place for your pup to splash in the river waters. High Tides on the Potomac and Colonial Beach Brewing are dog-friendly joints to dine out near the water as the sun goes down.
