Oak Grove Plantation Bed & Breakfast
Table Of Contents
The healthy air revives you as you approach Oak Grove down its sienna-colored lane, lined with loblolly pines. The air is alive with the sound of country.. .crickets, frogs, cicadas and birds. Visitors enjoy sipping cool lemonade and iced tea on the front porch on a lazy summer day.
That was the scene that greeted visitors to this antebellum home in the 1820s. Today, nearly 180 years later, the same family can welcome you with Southern hospitality this summer.
We are the only bed & breakfast in Virginia to have photovoltaic solar panels providing electricity to the house. We are environmentally conscious also by recycling, using clotheslines for drying, composting and using rain barrels.
The choice is yours. You can stay near the plantation house for wildflower walks, reading, birding, bike riding and hiking over 400 acres, a house tour, a neighborhood tour or a reiki session...
Or you can see the many sights of Southside Virginia...
Civil War battlefields
The last capital of the Confederacy in Danville
South Boston Museum
Minor league baseball
Buggs Island Lake
Hyco Lake for swimming and boating
And much, much more!
