Not only was this a beautifully restored plantation home, but the breakfasts were tastefully presented. We loved all this history associated with the house!

My partner and I are from the U.K and had travelled to Virginia for a 10 day trip to celebrate my 40th birthday (he had booked me tickets to a Huey Lewis concert in Newport News). Our night at Winterham was amazing. The owners were not there but the lady in charge was superb. We arrived just before the start of wedding season and had the astonishing good luck of being the guinea pigs for some of the recepies that were being trialled - I've never had a 7 course breakfast before. Wow! We were given a tour of the rooms and had all the history explained to us which was great. They also have a lovely separate guest cabin if you fancy a bit more privacy. Personally I loved having to climb in to and out of our 4 poster and hearing the storm rain on the roof! Well worth a visit.

Was back in Amelia for a class reunion and family did not have room that weekend so we made it a vacation and stayed at the Winterham Plantation. Very accommodating as we were out late and the room was very comfortable - huge room with a mini-fridge and snacks and coffee machine. Nice bathroom. Antiques everywhere but still very comfortable. Owners shared information about their restoration work on the house and were knowledgeable about the area which would be very nice if you were not a native! Breakfast was wonderful and the view across the small valley in the morning was spectacular. Very peaceful and lovely. It was a great weekend and I would certainly recommend this location to anyone visiting Amelia. Much better than the Econolodge next to the MacDonalds!
