Our visit to Edgewood was so different than other plantations. Our tour guide and owner, Dot was entertaining, interesting, full of stories and alive with energy.
Edgewood is a an historic home, a B&B definitely worthy of a stop.

Unfortunately I did not stay at the B&B; I just saw the sign for it as I was driving along the highway and stopped to view the house and property. You can call ahead to get a tour of the interior of the house for $15. I wish I had known ahead of time. It has some historical significance, as indicated on a marker, but the real prize seems to be the beauty of the grounds.

What a wonderful Bed and Breakfast!!

This beautiful old building is a unique and wonderful experience. Dot and Jules, the proprietors, were lovely; they welcomed up and provided a wonderful tour of the entire estate. The interior decor is very unique..you really need to stay there to appreciate it. Knowing the historical characters who walked it's floors also adds to the special feeling of being a part of history.

The breakfast was wonderful, served in their exquisitely decorated parlor room...

The bed and pillows were also very comfortable.

Stay here...you will not regret such a memorable night!

We stayed here as a central locale to see the nearby plantations (Berkeley, Shirley and Westover). The owners are extremely friendly, as typical in B&B's The breakfast was among the best that I have ever had here or abroad (some kind of stuffed croissant fried like a fritter - Dottie says that she keeps switching because she never likes to keep the same selection, so YMMV). The house has an interesting history and a heated pool. We stayed on the top floor where there was a ladder to the roof where Confederate observers spied on the Union encampment at nearby occupied Berkeley Plantation. There is also the story of the heartbroken resident ghost which, unfortunately for my curious teenage son, did not make an appearance for us. The property also includes a ruined mill. The only downsides are: 1) the condition (it is in need of repair); and 2) clutter (there are beautiful antiques mixed in with modern "country craft" objects - my tastes would prefer a jumble of antiques without the modern items interspersed, but others may like the two together). In the final analysis, it is very good for its purposes.

What a lovely place! We had a mother & daughter weekend there and just feel in love with the house and property. So much beauty and history, I loved hearing about the story of Lizzie Rowland and seeing her name etched into the upstairs widow. Also really enjoyed hearing about the history of Edgewood Plantation and Harrisons Mill. The house is captivating and is truly like getting a glimpse at the past. You could just imagine being there in that time. The rooms are all decorated beautifully through out the house. Especially the bedrooms. The grounds were nice and we really enjoyed the pool, very relaxing. Its was just perfect.
The owners Dottie and her husband Julian are just wonderful! They made us feel so welcomed and made sure we had a great time. It was a pleasure getting to know them, share some laughs and hear how they came to owning the Plantation.
I look forward to planning another trip here very soon in the near future.
Thank you Dottie and Julian for a weekend my mother and I will never forget, perfect Mother and Daughter time.

This is a working B&B, so reservations for a tour are required. The house is interesting. Not historically fascinating, but definitely a plantation with history. Not quite as critical in history as the other plantations, and is a little worn. But, Dottie is a gem. I would give this 3 stars if it weren't for her hilarious stories about how she came to own the house, remodel it, and furnish it. Personally, I felt it was too cluttered with antiques, and her eclectic furniture. But, I thoroughly enjoyed the tour by Dottie. An interesting character in her own right!

There are several magnificent colonial and antebellum plantation houses located along State Route 5, a scenic byway which runs virtually parallel to the James River between Richmond and Williamsburg in Virginia. Edgewood Plantation and Harrison's Mill, located at 4800 John Tyler Memorial Highway in Charles City, might not compare to Shirley or Berkeley. But it is one of a kind. Built in 1854, it is an exquisite 7,000-square-foot example of Gothic Revival architecture. Once part of the grounds of Berkeley, it is the sole example of Gothic Revival architecture found along the James River. The traditional center hall plan of the house provides the setting for a three-story stairway, which occupies the space beneath four steeply pitched gables. The house was built for Richard S. Rowland, who moved to Charles City County from New Jersey to operate the gristmill on the property. The mill was built during the 18th century by Benjamin Harrision V of Berkeley Plantation. During the Civil War, the third floor of Edgewood was used as a lookout post for Confederate generals when their troops were camped at nearby Berkeley and the gristmill ground corn for both the Union and Confederate armies. Confederat General Jeb Stuart also visited the estate. Today, Edgewood is a popular bed and breakfast and features Charles City County's first restaurant, The Blue Tea Pot, which opened in the early 1990s. The grounds are open daily and guided tours of the house are available daily by appointment. Edgewood was declared a Virginia Landmark in 1982 and added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1983.

Stopped to see Dot and visit with 24 friends in tow. We had let her know when to expect us and the visit was great. She shared the history of the house and gave the group a tour. Every one thoroughly enjoyed the time she took to spend with us. Planning a return visit. Need to spend the night in JEB's room at least once.

The scenic drive from Williamsburg to Richmond along Virginia Highway 5, or the James River Road, is overgrown with history that dates to the Revolutionary War and the Civil War, from Lighthorse Harry Lee to Robert E. Lee. And there are so many wonderful mansions, including Shirley, Berkeley, Westover, Sherwood Forest and Edgewood. We've visited all of them and none is to be missed. Edgewood Plantation and Harrison's Mill is an estate located north of the James River in Charles City County. Built in 1854, it is an exquisite 7,000-square-foot example of Gothic Revival architecture. It once was a part of the grounds of Berkeley Plantation and is the sole example of Gothic Revival architecture found along the James River. The traditional center hall plan of the house provides the setting for a three-story stairway, which occupies the space beneath four steeply-pitched gables. Edgewood was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1982. The mill was built during the 18th century by Benjamin Harrison V of Berkeley. It was visited during the Civil War by Confederate General Jeb Stuart and during the Revolutionary War by British troops led by Benedict Arnold. During the Civil War, the third floor of Edgewood was used as an observation post for Confederate generals when their troops were camped at nearby Berkeley. The mill ground corn for both armies. On June 15, 1862, Stuart stopped at Edgewood for refreshment on his way to Richmond to meet with Lee. In the early 1990s, Edgewood opened Charles City County's first restaurant, The Blue Tea Pot. Today, Edgewood serves as a bed-and-breakfast, rents rooms, offers Victorian high teas and special themed tours. The grounds are open daily from 9 to 5 and guided tours of the house are available by appointment. Hosts Dot and Julian Boulware have opened their magnificent estate to the public for historic tours, haunted house tours, Christmas tours, picnic tours, tea parties, weddings and private parties. There are eight luxurious guest rooms in the main house and two in the former slaves quarters. And if that isn't enough, you can be pampered by taking a swim in the 18-by-36-foot pool and sipping fresh lemonade in the gazebo. It's as if you are in a time warp, taking a trip back to another era. Fortunately, you can still read about it in books and visit the plantations to soak up the atmosphere.

Thank you Dot for another wonderful visit. You are truly an amazing hostess, as always. Although only 30 minutes from Richmond, it's like being whisked back in time where everything is grande and elaborately done, yet amazingly cozy with complete relaxation. Maggie and I had the most amazing girls weekend with you. With all the stress I'm dealing with, I wish I could come out and relax away the worries every month or so.
So again, ty. This is truly a lovely getaway for anyone. From wineries, to plantations, to the on-site gorgeous pool and gardens, you are missing out if you've never been.
Hope to see you all soon, Dot!
With love,
Victoria MacLean
