The staff was very helpful in setting up everything we needed for an elopement with less than a week's notice. They were very friendly and accommodating to our requests when the bride's family asked if they could attend also. The inn has pet friendly rooms, and provided a bed cover and towel to wipe off our dog's feet. We had a dinner basket the first night of our stay and the food was amazing. The breakfasts were equally enjoyable. The scenery is breathtaking and the quiet country setting is perfect for a wedding. We will definitely return to spend more time and visit some wineries and the historic sites in the area.

Special adventures that commemorate special occasions, such as birthdays, weddings or anniversaries are said to become moments of which memories are made. That was our intention when we booked a three day wedding anniversary weekend at The Inn at Meander Plantation. To our surprise this magical place, an eighty acre, two hundred fifty year old, plantation located in Locust Dale, Virginia became our special memory. It is described as a bed & breakfast, country inn, and gourmet restaurant. It is so much more. The proprietors / owners, Suzanne, who was a wonderful host and Suzi (who we never did get to meet) have created a “somewhere-in-time” place where you easily step back in history. The fireplaces, original window panes, creaky hard-wood floors and furnishings and décor all add to the charm and authenticity of the inn.
We chose the Pet Welcoming Package, which is one of the inn’s specials. It included a stand-alone cottage (we chose The Groom’s Cottage), home-made doggie treats (Callie’s favorite cheddar biscuits), a water bowl, doggie linens (towels and sheets), a three course dinner basket, which we ate in our room, a gourmet picnic lunch and breakfast each morning of our stay. Everything, and I do mean everything, was perfect. Right down to the lovely note from the owners that was tucked in our dinner basket.
We roamed the entire plantation, taking in the path around the river, which runs the whole length of the property; the stables, which were located right outside our cottage; the graveyard and the main house. Having coffee in our room with the fireplace roaring made the cold mornings cozy and charming. Breakfast was delicious and freshly prepared each morning. We chose to eat our breakfast outside on the back porch so that our black lab, Gracie could join us. She was even treated to more of Callie’s Cheddar Biscuits to quiet her morning tummy rumbles. From check-in to check-out, The Inn at Meander Plantation made our twelfth anniversary getaway perfect. It was a weekend worthy of a keepsake memory.

We stayed here last weekend in the Jefferson suite. The room was very large. If you want to enjoy the charm of a 1700's era plantation, this is a place to go. It was quiet and scenic and had great outdoors seating areas to set back and enjoy God's creation. If you want to go to the Ritz Carlton for up to date furnishings and modern amenities then go there. If you want to enjoy all the things mentioned prior to the last sentence then this is the place for you

We jus twent for dinner! We arrived a little early, so we sat on the porch and enjoyed the lovely evening. The decor is nifty and interesting without being stuffy - I enjoyed looking at their cook books, antique furniture, and beautiful dinnerware! It was so tempting to fill up on the home-made bread with butter! My filet was very flavorful and perfectly cooked. And the chocolate was divine. The service was attentive and informative.

We stayed at the Inn at Meander Plantation over 4th of July weekend. We were very impressed with the property, the owners, and the food. We stayed in the "Old Summer Kitchen" room, which I would actually describe as a small cottage. It has a nice cozy living room area downstairs and a nice large bedroom upstairs. The room has that old charm, but you can tell that it has been completely renovated. The bathroom is new and clean and has a very large and comfortable tub. We loved that the property was pet friendly, and the food at the Inn's restaurant was fresh and delicious.
