About Us

The Bed and Breakfast at Peace Hill, right at the center of historic Charles City County, is an award-winning inn located at the crossroads of Virginia’s most historic sites. Perched on a slope overlooking working farmlands and mature timber, the Bed and Breakfast occupies a turn-of-the-century farmhouse on the hundred-acre Peace Hill Farm. The Bed and Breakfast offers private, luxurious rooms and suites and a full country breakfast using local, fresh ingredients. A stone’s throw from Charles City plantations and just a short drive from historic Williamsburg and Yorktown to the east and Civil War-era Richmond, the Bed and Breakfast at Peace Hill is the perfect place to explore the past, reconnect with nature, or just relax in restful surroundings.

The house features original beadboard walls and ceilings, random-width hardwood floors, and wide sunny windows overlooking croplands where corn, wheat, and cotton flourish. Curl up in the cozy sitting room with books and games; relax on the breezy screen porch and enjoy birdwatching; play croquet or horse-shoes in the lush yard beneath the century-old maple tree; or have tea served in your room. The Bed and Breakfast at Peace Hill is the ideal spot for birthday or anniversary celebrations, girls’ weekends, father-son getaways, or book club retreats. Your hosts are happy to personalize your visit in whatever way you request–from a birthday cake to a special dinner served at a romantic outdoor table.

Peace Hill Farm sits at the center of what was a sprawling colonial era plantation, site of a 1614 treaty with the Chickahominy tribe. During your visit, be sure to walk the many trails that circle the farm. Meander through the shade of the old woods, visit the trout pond, and be sure to wander past the fields where our draft horses and Leicester Longwool sheep graze! Owned by writer and historian Susan Wise Bauer, the Bed & Breakfast is hosted by innkeepers Mike and Tanya Moore.
