Winter at Belle Grove

Today we had our first real snow in Chesapeake, getting about 2 inches. As you can see Hurley had a blast in it.

We heard from the caretakers at Belle Grove, they too have gotten a good bit of snow. How we wish we could be there to see it!

Next year for sure!

The caretaker will be taking some pictures for us and we will be traveling there on Sunday while we attend the Bridal Show in Manassas. But until then, they shared with us some pictures from 2009 of Belle Grove and a wonderful snow fall they had that year.

    Looks like Hurley was having a lot of fun. I hope you are able to get some snow pictures. If not this year, you will have many chances in the future.

    Absolutely beautiful.

    The house looks beautiful with all the snow around it. Enjoy the bridal show! Some day, I’m coming up there! :)

  6. wonderful atmosphere – so beautiful

  7. Oh, it looks just glorious in winter. Time to make those millions so I can come visiting. I’d be right there with Hurley, playing in the snow :)

    I live in Florida which makes pictures like these the best way to “like” snow. I bet some nice snowy shots of the house will make great Christmas Cards…Norman Rockwell would want one! I enjoy keeping up with your progress on the whole project.

    • Thank you Marc! I like seeing snow this way too! I’m not much for the cold, but just love the beauty of it. I agree, maybe next year we will have some of the pictures from this year gracing our first Christmas card from Belle Grove. Great idea! Thank you!

    Stunning. . . ethereal. Seeing Harley makes me long for another pup.

  10. Beth says:

    I meant Hurley! It’s just that I have a friend with a guide dog named Harley who looks just like Hurley! :)

  11. John says:

    Such a grand and stately looking home, great photos!

  12. Jane Sadek says:

    Hard for me to think about snow. My irises have already started blooming!

  13. Lisa says:

    Perfect post card pics or Christmas Cards!! I love your dog!! My dog loves the snow too!!

    even in the depth of snow the house stands out in beauty

  15. Gorgeous in any season! How far are you from Belle Grove? One more question. How many guests rooms will you have?

    • I totally agree! We live 2.5 hours from the plantation at this time. We have driven it so much that it doesn’t even seem that long any more. We have four Suites. They are larger than an average room. Upstairs we have to Master Suites and downstairs we have to Junior Suites.

    Belle Grove looks pristine and serene surrounded by the snow. Beautiful Belle Grove.

  17. I’m a spring/fall kinda girl, myself… but I love snow as well. Provided I am inside, next to a warm fire, a glass of red wine in my hand, gazing out at the sparkling white snow… :)

    A snow-covered B&B…beautiful! And Hurley is so sweet with that white nose.
    I was wondering, your B&B looks so big, but I think I read on your comments at some point that you will just have four rooms we (the public) can book overnight. Is that correct? Are they suites? Will your family live inside the B&B?

    • Thank you! We love the snow pics too. We can’t wait to see it in person tomorrow. Hurley says thank you too!

      We have four rooms that will be open to rent. Two Master Suites upstairs and two Junior Suites downstairs. They all larger than average rooms you would find at a B&B. The house as a total is 8,000 sq feet.

      Yes, Brett and I will have a room just off of the kitchen. Our kids will remain in Chesapeake to attend college.

  19. I can just see Belle Grove decked out for Christmas now. Lovely.

  20. Hurley looks so handsome laying in the snow!

    I can just visualize the roaring log fires and being all warm and cosy inside

    • I don’t know about roaring logs, but we do have some of the fireplaces set up with gas logs ;) We have to be really careful that we don’t burn down this historic house so we decided not to us real wood that could jump out of the fireplace. But it still would be a cozy thought! Thank you!

  22. That is some property. Great to stay in a house with a history. I stay in an old church which one of my ancestors might have designed and built. Still trying to research that.

  23. All your pictures are beautiful but the ones with Hurley are the best
