‘Virginia is for Lovers’ and the perfect romantic Virginia getaway awaits near the heart of the Shenandoah Valley at Prospect Hill Plantation Inn. This is very close to Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello. The quaint country inn provides a much needed opportunity for relaxation.
In these economic times it is a relief to to have a great escape that is both affordable and close. Regardless of whether you have the time to get away for a night or an entire weekend, the short trip from Washington DC is well worth the investment in romance and yourself.
Guests will find themselves surrounded everywhere they turn. Few Shenandoah bed and breakfast inns can boast fifty acres of grounds. The estate’s treasures include original tree plantings from 1840 and the most rare Magnolia in the country. Visitors to such a VA Inn enjoy extensive gardens, a five-acre arboretum and one of the many secluded spots on the grounds for private relaxation.
Virginia country inns are well known for their romantic atmosphere, especially when it comes to an evening of dining, where Prospect Hill exceeds all expectations. Culinary delights of the season are often prepared by Chef William Sheehan.
A dinner served by candlelight is just what is needed to leave your troubles far behind and remember what is truly valuable. The four course prie fixe dinners, available weekends and most weekdays, include a complementary wine reception and dessert.
The Shenandoah bed and breakfast experience you’ll enjoy at Prospect Hill has been shared by thousands of guests and has led to Prospect Hill’s selection as one of ‘the eight best Bed and Breakfasts’ in the Washington DC area by Bethesda Magazine.
The original eighteenth century Plantation manor home and outbuildings have been restored to thirteen individual guest rooms, each providing a private bath (some with Jacuzzi tubs) and working fireplace. These amenities blend smoothly into the room or cottage’s original decor and function. Antique furnishings complement the comfort of the pillow-topped queen and king size beds and the feeling of simple elegance.
Once you are relaxed, you will be ready to enjoy a full country breakfast in bed. Later in the day you will be treated to afternoon tea. If your romantic Virginia getaway commenced in the dining room of the manor house, you may elect the Plantation’s newest unique dining experience: a Plantation Supper Tray. Served with china, this lighter supper tray is taken in your room and includes soup, salad, a light entree, dessert, and coffee or tea. Your complementary split of wine served your first night could be reserved for this time.
No one could debate that an experience like a Shenandoah bed and breakfast weekend makes for a first rate romantic Virginia getaway. Lovers simply need to step onto the grounds and take in all the Inn has to offer. They won’t be disappointed. The opportunity to get away without having to pay for air fare or other expensive travel arrangements can be saved, while not compromising on the experience.
