  3. Michelle – The website looks absolutely fabulous. Wishing you continued success. I’m hoping that we will be back in Virginia at some point and can enjoy a stay at Belle Grove Plantation. It’s been so much fun witnessing your journey. I think all of us here feel just a little bit a part of it all. Cheers!

    I love everything about your website. It is beyond gorgeous and elegant, but still has the feeling of warmth and hospitality that has come through all these months in your blog. I just know that all your love for Belle Grove and you hard work is going to pay off for you both. Congratulations!!

  8. Thank you so much Mary! We are so glad you like the website! That is just what I was going for when developing it! We hope to see you some day soon at the plantation!

    Congratulations on your opening. The real excitement begins.

  39. Thank you!

  40. So, when can I the canine connoisseur come stay with y’all????? We’d love to see all of your hard work up close and personal.

    ArOOOOO! Stuart

  41. Aw thank you! Sad to say that we are not able to take pets in the hotel. Due to the historic importance of the house, we can’t take the chance. Not that you would hurt it πŸ˜‰ But we hope in the future to have cottages built so we can have pets. But that is in the future. Hurley isn’t here either. He is back in Chesapeake.

  42. Beautiful! Congratulations!

  43. Thank you!

  44. mavimet Says:

    Congratulations! I love the website and so happy and excited for you.

  45. Thank you!

  46. Jen Says:

    Oh, the site is just terrific! It looks great and offers all of the information I look for when we’re seeking out a B&B (really, it does, I’m picky). How exciting! Oh, you must have been dancing all around. πŸ˜‰ Beautiful! Maybe y’all can create little buttons for others to post on their own blogs.

  47. Thank you! Thank you for that suggestion! I will get our web designer on it now!

  48. Jen Says:

    Ohβ€”though your LinkedIn link does not work. Just FYI!

  49. Ok thanks!

  50. Mama Bear Says:

    The new site looks awesome! I do have a question though. On the “Accommodations” page, why is it that you don’t have a picture for each room to go along with the description?

  51. We should have them now. We haven’t had any because I didn’t have the rooms pictures done yet.

  52. Chris Brann Says:

    Looks really nice just a shame I will never visit it.
    I pray that Gos will bless your efforts.

  53. Thank you!

  54. Congratulations from La Rue County, Kentucky. Think we have lots of family in your area. Know any La Rues? Or, Brooks?

  55. I am sorry that name isn’t familiar. Thank you from Virginia πŸ˜‰

  56. Great website and beautiful pictures! You are definitely on my bucket list of places to visit.

  57. Thank you! We hope to see you soon!
