Meadowbrook Farm Bed and Breakfast has passed the Bed and Breakfast Association of Virginia (BBAV) inspection and now joins the other 160 fantastic bed and breakfasts in the state of Virginia to have passed this inspection.
Originally a 200 acre livestock and dairy farm, Allen & Debbie Bryant bought their thirty acre parcel of property in Suffolk, VA 16 years ago to fulfill a long standing dream of running a bed and breakfast after retirement. The current main house replaced the original farm house in 1948. The cottage and other outbuildings were part of the original farm.
When asked about her favorite part of owning a bed and breakfast, Debbie responded, “Having spent 35+ years as professional engineers, our retirement goal was to do something completely different and own/operate a B&B. However, you would be surprised at the number of opportunities there are to apply engineering principles to everyday operations of a B&B. We both enjoy providing outstanding hospitality to our guests, from our beautiful country setting, our wonderfully appointed rooms, our delicious gourmet breakfasts, and other amenities not found in traditional hotels.”
Along with a gourmet breakfast and a wonderful place to stay, Meadowbrook Farm also has a “game room” with a pool table, TVs and other games. Guests can spend hours laughing and having fun with family and friends in this mid-1800’s log style grain storage building that is now converted to a game room.
It is no surprise that the president of BBAV, Heidi Lanford, is also excited about Meadowbrook Farm Bed and Breakfast’s new member: “Being a member of BBAV is a guarantee to customers that you meet and exceed the expectations of a standard B&B, and Meadowbrook Farm B&B is no exception,” added Lanford.
