Come travel back to the days of Southern Elegance and Charm …
… to a time of Genteel Ladies and Debonair Gentlemen.

Belle Grove Plantation, the birthplace of President James Madison, located in King George County Virginia, is now the home of Belle Grove Plantation Bed & Breakfast. Our Southern Plantation was established in 1670 on the banks of the Rappahannock River. Belle Grove’s stately, historic mansion has four Master Suites with private baths and views of the river and plantation. Each room is named after families that owned Belle Grove Plantation through its history, and each is decorated in period antiques to reflect the period that family lived at Belle Grove. Gourmet Breakfasts await you in our formal dining room or on the riverside balcony.

Built in 1791, this Mansion offers the charm of Southern days gone by. Here you will find the elegant Southern wedding of your dreams or a peaceful retreat for corporate and social gatherings. With historic and local attractions within easy drives and award winning vineyards just around the corner, Belle Grove Plantation makes a great place to come home to after a day of adventure.

Just 90 minutes from Washington DC or Baltimore, 50 minutes from Richmond and less than a half hour from Fredericksburg, Belle Grove Plantation is a hidden jewel of the Northern Neck.

We invite you to come, sit back, relax and allow us to show you what true Southern Hospitality is really like.

Ghost Investigation Tours!
Is Belle Grove Plantation Haunted?

Many people and paranormal teams have tried to answer this question. Even the SyFy Channel’s Ghost Hunters has investigated. All that come away have the same answer . . . there is definitely something there. We have seen apparitions. We have heard voices and sounds. We have seen a ball of light in broad daylight! We have photographs that just can’t be explained.

Now we are challenging you to find out for yourself!

Come join us as we discuss past experiences, share photographs, videos and EVPS (electronic voice phenomenon) and do our own paranormal investigation of the grounds.


Please note – These are a paranormal investigation, not a history tour. Reservations Required.

Special Note – For the month of September and October, Friday and Saturday Ghost Investigations have been cancelled due to private events taking place at Belle Grove Plantation. All Special Event Ghost Investigations on Friday, Saturday or Tuesday in October have not been cancelled and will be go on as planned.
