This is a wonderful inn, a fabulous respite from the craziness of DC. A beautiful property, lovely inn with comfortable accommodations (fireplaces in the rooms!), spectacular meals, warm hospitality from the owners and staff, and wide array of activities both on property and in the surrounding area. We also love that they allow dogs- our dog enjoyed much hiking and... More

We chose Meander Plantation because of its central location to Culpeper and Montpelier, President Madison's home. Susanne, a co-owner, greeted us and escorted us to our room, explaining the history of the home along the way. After settling in, we wandered the property and rocked ourselves in the swing under a giant oak as we enjoyed watching the sun descend... More

We've been coming here for years, all the way from Michigan. It is our favorite place to relax. And it is dog friendly. Our dogs love this place. They turn into farm dogs as we take long walks around the property visiting the historic family cemetery and the beautiful river. The breakfasts are first class and the dinners are very... More

The Inn is on a beautiful piece of property outside of Culpeper and has a main house and several out buildings. There is a dining room in the main house where breakfast and dinners are served.

If I was not traveling with a home remodeling contractor, I might have overlooked the troubles this lovely old home has.

Thank you for staying with us and for sharing your observations. Yes, an old house always has housekeeping and maintenance needs, and we are constantly striving to make improvements. We will certainly pay particular attention to the things you noted. (Except that part about cabinet doors falling off -- there aren't and weren't any!) We were away for a few... More

We spent two nights at the Inn and had a lovely time. The Inn and grounds are quite nice, and the breakfasts and dinner were first rate. The service was also very good.

The grounds are wonderful, and the inn is pet friendly. However, the 3-course prix fix for $65 that you are forced to consume is a complete rip-off. The sparkling wine had room temperature and the waitress/aka manager in charge did not even notice when serving. The cheesecake dessert was frozen though...certainly not freshly made. And breakfast can be a tedious... More
