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.
With the wind storm on March 2, 2018, our Summer Kitchen and Smokehouse took a real beating. Today we are faced with both buildings that have been moved off their foundations. This has caused the north and east wall of the Summer Kitchen and the four walls of the Smokehouse to become unstable. While we have been working as the James Madison Belle Grove Foundation to raise the needed $200,000 to restore these three buildings, these walls will not wait much longer. We have a short term goal of $50,000 to get the north and east walls of the Summer Kitchen, Smokehouse all four walls and the tuck work done on the Ice House. Please help us reach this goal before its too late. Please make a donation to the James Madison Belle Grove Foundation below. Thank you.
