Wedding planning can be a simultaneously exhilarating and exhausting experience. We know. We’ve tried it. This means that we also know that one of the most important parts of your honeymoon adventure is the place you rest your head for that much-needed decompression and beauty sleep. From an inn to a famous hotel, and the coziest bed and breakfast around we’ve got a few options across the state that we think will make you want to sit back, relax, and say “ahhh.”
The Inn at Westwood Farm
A luxuriously restored and renovated 1910 farmhouse, the Inn at Westwood Farm is cozy, elegant, and in the middle of 15 acres of barns, paddocks and gardens – a true getaway from the hustle and bustle of cities and stress. The inn’s rooms are bright, open, and airy, as well as recently updated. Meanwhile, breakfast is served every morning and made with local, organic ingredients pulled directly from the farm garden while resident hens provide fresh eggs. Historic landmark Monticello, as well as Civil War battlefields and Shenandoah National Park are all within a short drive of this countryside dream dwelling.
The Jefferson Hotel
We’ve talked about the Jefferson Hotel's afternoon tea, but did we mention the room service? This historic hotel first opened its doors in 1895 and has been wowing visitors with its open lobby and impressive service since. From its marbled-columned terraces to the pool’s history as home to an alligator or two, this elaborately comfortable hotel is considered one of the finest in the state.
Beach Spa Bed and Breakfast
Small, sweet, and two blocks away from Virginia Beach’s sandy seashore, the Beach Spa Bed and Breakfast calls itself a mini spa resort – and has the amenities to back up the claim. From the front-porch views to the 1937 structure and private, spa-inspired bathrooms, this retreat is simultaneously intimate and attentive in all the best ways.
