All across America, there are places giving new meaning to the phrase “Bed & Breakfast.” Places where the proprietors go above and beyond what’s expected. Places where the conversation and interaction among guests is easy and animated. Places where the hosts spare no ends to make guest feel right at home. Places with extras such as rooms where guests can gather to talk or read. Places of stunning natural beauty. Then…there are places with all of these attributes!
Here are my choices for the Top 5 B&B’s in America…
5 – THE INN AT MEANDER PLANTATION, LOCUST DALE, VIRGINIA – The Inn at Meander Plantation is a beautiful historic country inn, in the best tradition of the Old South…and dating back to 1766. Here, you’ll relax in luxurious accommodations surrounded by 80 acres of greenery in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The Inn is a B&B, but it offers gourmet dinners, as well – four-course, Southern-influenced dinners – to guests who don’t want to leave the grounds for dinner. It sits on a hill with spectacular mountain views and breathtaking sunsets. The ten charming guest rooms and cottages are luxuriously furnished. It’s a short drive to Monticello and Montpelier – the homes of presidents Jefferson and Madison, respectively. And several award-winning wineries and distilleries are just down the road.
