Welcome to the Southern Heritage Bed and Breakfast!
Southern Heritage, a Queen Anne Victorian, built in 1880 sits in the heart of Virginia's Lake Country in the historic town of Boydton. It features a wrap-around porch with cupola and plenty of gingerbread. The rooms are large, airy and tastefully decorated with attention to the heritage of the old south.
In the evenings guests at Southern Heritage Bed & Breakfast can relax on the porch and chat with other guests or read in one of the many private nooks.
If you choose to walk on our grounds you can enjoy our shady seating area, our rock garden, or our rare Osage Orange Tree (the tree which inspired the invention of barbed-wire).
As you explore the grounds be sure to notice the variety of plants including the roses, azaleas, crepe myrtles, camellias, hydrangea and rose of Sharon. From June to August our fireflies will entertain you with a nightly light show.
Indoor activities include games, a Civil War puzzle, a piano, organ and videos. Browse our library of Civil War books which include a large variety of biographies and historical accounts of the war. Peruse a week by week account of the war as reported in an Atlanta newspaper. Our books include some rare, first edition, and out of print books. Ask us to tell you the story of Colonel John Pelham.
Fishermen will find we are the closest lodging to Rudds Creek (2 miles), Eastland Creek (7 miles), and North Bend Park (9 miles). Fishermen can request early breakfast and boxed lunches while their wives can breakfast late and leisurely. Wives can also enjoy afternoon tea served in "grand Victorian style". Whatever you choose to do in Lake Country you will find your stay at Southern Heritage to be gracious and accommodating. We aim to fulfill your every need.

Southern Heritage Dining
Whether you choose to breakfast in our grand dining room with a turret and wainscotting or on the porch bedecked with wicker and seasonal plants you will be served in high Victorian style with china, silver and fresh flowers.
We love children and have many families that stay with us often. We make every effort to make them feel at home with toys and games and snacks of their liking. Our house is full of antiques, but we don't worry about it. God gave us everything we have and it's His, so we just enjoy all of God's blessings and want to share them with moms, dads, kids, and well-behaved pets.
We welcome pets. There is a $10 fee per night.
