“The Hope and Glory Inn is situated along the state’s Oyster and Wine Trail, offering guests an ideal romantic vacation complete with fresh oyster tastings and wine pairings from its 6-acre winery, Dog and Oyster Vineyard. An intimate, prix-fixe candle-lit dinner for two at the on-site restaurant, The Dining Hall, showcases the best of the area’s locally sourced ingredients like Rappahannock River oysters, jumbo lump crab and rockfish.

Set in a former schoolhouse, the cozy property features quaint rooms and cottages, some with balconies and patios that overlook the lush countryside property. A romantic seasonal boat tour on the property’s boat, True Love, offers a chance to experience life along calm inlets, frolic on pristine, white-sand beaches, and observe the numerous birds and wildlife that inhabit the peninsula.”
