The Destination
A centuries-old peninsula on the western edge of the Chesapeake Bay, the Northern Neck of Virginia rests between the Potomac and Rappahannock Rivers. Sure, it boasts more than 1,000 miles of shoreline containing beaches, wharfs, and tiny towns that date back to colonial times, but the real appeal of this gorgeous geographic region is its welcoming residents. When you're ready to sample the hospitality, the small town of Montross is the perfect place to catch up with some of these friendly folks. Here, you can swing in and out of cozy coffee shops and charming museums before tackling some of the surrounding hiking trails.

The Digs
Just two hours south of the nation's capital, The Inn at Montross is a 19th-century structure that has hosted a tavern, a hotel, a restaurant, a private residence, and more over the years. Spend your historical stay in one of the property's five guest rooms—Stratford, Madeira, General Washington, Potomac, or Garden—each featuring queen-size beds and private bathrooms. After settling in, begin your getaway with a Virginia wine tasting where you'll sample varieties from a congress of nearby vineyards. Later, dine on delicacies like jumbo sea scallops served atop a bed of buttery grits. Or, savor the inn's Maple Farm's seared duck breast, paired with a creamy cranberry-pear risotto.

  • "A popular weekend getaway for residents of nearby metropolitan areas, this rural land of rolling hills serrated by quiet tidal creeks is the ancestral home of the Carters, the Washingtons, and the Lees, who created large plantations on the riverbanks."
