If you like environmental-friendly, green lodging, you'll love our B&B, which is powered by photovoltaic solar panels, yet maintains our 200-year tradition of Southern hospitality. Oak Grove Plantation offers bedrooms with fireplaces, comfortable period furniture and family pieces. The elegant parlor and cheerful sunporch provide common space for music and reading. In the Victorian dining room you will be served a full country breakfast in the tradition of Southern hospitality. The plantation has 400 acres available to you for hiking and biking on farm roads and paths. Dogs welcome.
The entire top floor of the inn is in this family suite with views of the rolling countryside. There is a fireplace in each room with a double canopied bed in the blue room and king bed in the green room. The bath has a shower and a soaking tub as well as a balcony overlooking the forest and fields. Rates are at double occupancy.
Book-lined shelves and an antique oak desk and lamp distinguish this first floor room. It has a view of oaks, flowers and greenery, and a door leading outside. There is a comfortable seating area and a queen bed with a handicapped accessible bath. This is my dog-friendly room.

I apologize if this review appears twice. Submission error occurred the first time I wrote this. My wife and I had a wonderful time at Oak Grove Plantation. It looked very interesting online and offered dog-friendly accommodations so that we could take our Standard Poodle with us on this getaway. When we learned that the owner, Pickett Craddock, had two Standard Poodles, that sealed the deal for us. Virtually everything about our visit lived up to our expectations. The house was well-appointed and interesting from an architectural and historical perspective. Our room, the Library, was generous and well-appointed. I loved the built in bookshelves, and the separate entrance made it easy to deal with the dog when necessary. Pickett made delicious and healty breakfasts with lots of fresh ingredients, and the converation around the breakfast table was consistently enjoyable. The grounds were lovely, and we had an opportunity to hike some of the trails which wind their way through the property. The trails were wide and well-maintained -- no machetes needed! South Boston and Halifax were pleasant surprises for such small towns. There were a number of interesting places to visit (don't miss the Prizery in South Boston or the sculpture gardens). There were also several outstanding restaurants which would hold their own in any major metro. Finally, the dogs. Pickett's dogs, Bonnie and Niko, are total sweethearts -- friendly, playful and well-behaved. Our dog Jefferson had a blast romping with them in the yard. I think Bonnie and Niko had fun also. If you like dogs at all, those two will get away with you. One very minor quibble was that the mattress on the bed sagged in the middle, so that I felt like I was sleeping uphill. Not terrible, but not as comfortable as I would have preferred. Still, that is a minor flaw in what was an otherwise outstanding experience. We will definitely come back another time.
We are so glad that you enjoyed your visit. It was a pleasure having you. After reading your comments, we have replaced the mattress and box springs. Thanks for the feedback.

We had a stressful time at home and wanted to get away to a peaceful place to recharge. Oak Grove fit the bill. Nice rooms in a 100+ year old house decorated with ancient photos of the relatives. Great breakfast with the owners and other guests which took forever because we found so much to talk about. Sitting on the front porch, drinking wine and reading our mystery paperbacks. Priceless.

We went for a weekend stay in Virginia and stayed at the Oak Grove Plantation B&B. This B&B is wonderful and we enjoyed the peace and quietness. Our hostess explained about the history of the plantation. Thank you for a wonderful weekend
