Commemorate Your Romantic Milestones at a Virginia Inn

Thursday, February 13th, 2014

Bed and breakfasts are the epitome of a romantic setting—fireside dinners, wine tasting, cozy suites, and elegant amenities. There’s no doubt that our Inn Virginia members are chosen to host a myriad of romantic milestones with everything from anniversary celebrations to intimate wedding ceremonies to “just because” getaways.

Are you looking to commemorate the anniversary of your first date? Your engagement? Your wedding? Mountain Rose Inn is at your service with their Anniversary Celebration Package, a two-night escape to re-kindle your romance. Sip from a glass of sparkling wine, and nibble on cheese or chocolates. Feast on a romantic meal at a local restaurant, and return to relax with a couples’ massage. The best part? Your innkeepers orchestrate everything, so you can sit back and enjoy a couple of stress-free days of romance.

 “I would not wish any companion in the world but you” (William Shakespeare’s The Tempest.) Perhaps your significant other is a fan of the Bard, and while a trip to Shakespeare’s original Blackfriars Theater in England may be an improbable journey for you, we’ve got the next best thing—the world’s only recreation of the Blackfriars, located in Staunton, VA.  Belle Hearth Bed and Breakfast offers a Shakespearean Romantic Night at their inn, which not only includes two tickets to a performance at the Blackfriars Playhouse, but also your choice of either flowers, wine, or a box of chocolates. (This would also make a great opportunity for a proposal. After all, who does romance better than Shakespeare?)

Weddings also happen to be a bed and breakfast specialty. Whether you’re looking for a small, intimate setting or a fast but elegant elopement, our inns are at the ready. Bring your future spouse and up to 20 guests to Magnolia House Inn’s Wedding Chapel for a complete nuptial ceremony. Innkeepers Joyce and Lankford Blair are interfaith wedding ministers who also provide elopements, vow renewals, and commitment ceremonies. Take some of the stress out of your special day with the help of our innkeepers.

Beliveau Bridalty: The Romance of Dell and Allison

Tuesday, February 5th, 2013

Bed & Breakfasts are catalysts of romance, housing a vast number of proposals and engagements, weddings, anniversaries, and couples’ getaways. This romance, of course, is not limited to the guests who find themselves at the inns, but also includes the employees who work there. One such employee is Dell Peters, the catering manager at Beliveau Estate in Blacksburg, VA.

Just this past November, Dell and the love of his life Allison were married at Beliveau Estate after dating for two and a half years. When asked about his relationship and his proposal, Dell laughed and said, “I told a friend once that if a woman brought me a pot of coffee while I was working a wedding, I’d have to marry her. Soon after we started dating, Allison brought me a pot of coffee during a wedding, so that was that!”

On a chilly November Saturday in 2012, Dell and Allison said their “I do’s” at Beliveau Estate. (And Dell proved his excellence as a catering manager by preparing the food for his own wedding!) “I am a lucky, lucky man,” Dell remarked. “The fact that she said yes is just amazing.”

Beliveau Estate was voted by Virginia Living Magazine as one of the Top Wedding Venues in Southwest Virginia, and it offers a picturesque scene for his ceremony and an elegant Great Hall for your reception. If you are interested in staying at Beliveau, give them a call at 540-961-0505 or email them at Info@beliveauestate.com.

Congratulations to Dell and Allison!
