Tucked between Chesapeake Bay and the Potomac River on a private peninsula in Virginia's Northern Neck, this stylish inn features a resort spa, eighteen-hole golf course and full-service marina. In addition, the property is situated along the Chesapeake Bay Wine Trail, an intimate wine region that invites day trips with its ten boutique wineries. There are few more ideal pairings than fine wines and Southern hospitality, and it is this combination that draws travelers to the area. They also come to be immersed in regional heritage, which can be discovered through a variety of experiences, from the hotel's historical tours to on-site Chesapeake Club Restaurant, which showcases original details from its prohibition days.
