Just one mile from the historic Mayhurst Plantation Manor House in Orange, Virginia, some of the bloodiest Civil War contests were fought. You'd never know it, though, when you Escape to the luxurious Mayhurst Inn Bed & Breakfast for a retreat of historic proportions at this property surrounded by 37 acres of manicured lawns, green gardens, and rolling Virginia Piedmont.

History meets taste during a two-night stay for two, Sundays through Thursdays ($387) or Fridays and Saturdays ($465) at this 9,200-square-foot Italianate Victorian plantation that's listed on the National Registry of Historic Places. Each individually decorated guest room features a private bath, working fireplace, down pillows, and luxury linens at the same spot that entertained Generals Robert E. Lee, Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson, and 18,000 soldiers. Free parking, Wi-Fi, and a full plantation-style breakfast for two await.

The river runs red—with wine—at this historic haven known for its palate-pleasing Southern fare. Upon arrival, sate your sweet tooth with chocolate truffles before an evening that begins with the inn's signature wine tasting-and-pairing class, complemented with sumptuous hors d'oeuvres.

Later, ready yourself for a gourmet, multi-course dinner for two at The Inn at Meander Plantation—voted "Best of Virginia" for wine tasting, dinners, and special events by Virginia Wine Lover magazine.

During the day, get ready to charge into more full-bodied bliss with tasting certificates as well as maps and info for eight local wineries plus a delicious boxed lunch for two.

Whether you and your second lieutenant are Civil War buffs keen on visiting one of six nearby battlefields, or you're only interested in the history of a well-aged bottle of Cabernet, you're likely to get a good old-fashioned lesson in American culture and heritage on this Escape.

After a trip to the glorious gardens of Thomas Jefferson's Monticello or James Madison's Montpelier, hunger doesn't stand a fighting chance at the Inn at Meander Plantation, boasting such dishes as wild-mushroom risotto, ginger-salmon wontons, and roasted rack of local lamb with sage and carrot cream.

Take leave from the boring battlegrounds of the every day with an Escape to the Southern hospitality Mayhurst is famous for. That's an order.

  • "We were stunned at the ornate beauty of the Italianate Victorian design. It's strikingly beautiful. The foyer extends through four floors. The rooms have been decorated with taste, care, and attention to detail. The new bathrooms are totally modern."
