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 Historic Landmark 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 and Delightful Four-Course Dinners await you in our formal dining room or on the riverside balcony.
Built in 1791, this Mansion offers the charm of days gone by. Here you will find the elegant 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.

Last week, we had the honor of having Dr. Julia King, archaeologist who works with the Rappahannock Tribe visit us at Belle Grove. We are excited to announce that we are planning an archaeological dig in June 2023. The best part is this class will be opened to the public to come and learn about archaeology and the history of Belle Grove!
In order for us to schedule this class, we need to raise $3000.00 to pay the archaeologist to come teach the class. This is a small sum for an event that will make so much difference in how we view Belle Grove.
What I am asking is this. Tuesday, January 31st is my birthday. We are asking for 300 people to donate just $10.00. If we can get 300 people to step up and say history is important and deserved to be remembered, we can schedule this class for the second week in June.
