Congratulations to Michelle and Brett who are now the proud owners of the Belle Grove Plantation B&B!

Belle Grove Plantation Bed and Breakfast

Today we made it official!

We have a signed contract for the lease for

Belle Grove Plantation!

We traveled to Richmond this afternoon and finished the review of the final draft of the lease contract and signed it. This has been a long time coming!
