Never have felt so welcome than at Edgewood Plantation. We got the grand tour in the house and the garden. We had lots of laughs and it was a pity that we could not stay a little longer. Thanks Dottie and Julian; you are wonderful people!

We recently stayed at Edgewood and enjoyed our stay very much. The house is beautiful inside with it's many antiques and decorative pieces. Edgewood also is right in the heart of all the plantations so you can visit the many surrounding plantations and really get a feel for the time period. Also Jeb Stuart visited the house and had a cup of coffee there. Wonderful breakfast beautiful gardens scrapes what's not to like? Also be sure to checkout the country store wonderful example of a old time store. Thanks Christopher

If you want to experience southern hospitality at it's finest, this is the place for you. It takes you back to the Old South when men were Gentlemen and woman were Ladies. A wonderful all around B&B experience.

We stayed here as our first night before our family reunion. After a long flight from California and drive from Washington DC, our first impression was wonderful and a great place to stay. After a dunk in the pool to cool off from the heat, we went to our room at 4:00, laid down and did not wake up until the next morning. The next day after a wonderful breakfast, Dot sat and told us the history of her home and the surrounding areas and where to go. It really made our touring of the surrounding areas even more interesting. What a wonderful night and day we spent there. We arrived on a Wednesday and lucked out as we had the place to ourselves and it was fabulous. She was preparing for a big wedding party for the upcoming weekend and showed us around her beautiful grounds. What a great place to have a wedding or just a romantic night. Ron and Karen (July 2012)

My friend and I arrived very tired and were greeted with a warm welcome and a glass of wine. The hosts, Dot and Julian, were friendly and attentive but did not hover. The room was spacious and the bed firm. It was quiet at night and we slept like babies. Breakfast was served at the time we has requested and was delicious. This inn is in a beautiful location and you feel so relaxed there. We will be going back with our spouses and again just the two of us.

Wonderful inn in a wonderful, historic setting. Innkeepers, Dot and Julien, were welcoming and friendly. Service was wonderful. The rooms were decorated appropriately for the era. I would stay there again in a heartbeat and recommend it to anyone looking for lodging in the James River Plantation area.

Edgewood Plantation is a beautifully restored home that combines modern-day comforts with furnishings that make you feel as if you've stepped back in time. The grounds are beautiful, and the hospitality and service are unbeatable. The owners are what really set this B&B apart, with their enthusiasm and their great stories about the history of the home and the surrounding area. The B&B is worth a visit on its own, but if you want to explore, there are several impressive historic plantations just up the road that are well worth the trip!

My wife and I happened across the beautiful home when driving along Rout 5 visiting historical sites and the Shirley plantation. Not only did it have a great tour, but it had a B&B so we ended up staying. By the end of our stay we felt like we had a new mother and father in Dot and Julian. We wanted to take them home with us! We loved the pool, the gardens were gorgeous and the breakfast was top of the line B&B food! We want to go back for a week if we could. We just felt so happy visiting this place and all the historical plantations in the area!!! Amazing experience for us in so many ways.
