The Essex Inn in Tappahannock is the ideal property for Virginia family reunion lodging or to host meetings and retreats. Located only a block from the Rappahannock River, we are in a quiet historical neighborhood, which is perfect for retreats or gatherings where privacy and peaceful ambiance would be appreciated.

By renting the whole Inn as your meeting facility near Richmond, Virginia, we are able to sleep up to 20 people, with the main floor being utilized for gatherings and meals. Our kitchen can provide a meal plan to suit your needs. Crafters and quilters would find plenty of space to spread out their projects as well.

Mid-week meetings can easily be accommodated at the Inn. Using the four large rooms and the foyer on the main floor of the Inn makes for convenient space management for a group. Again, meals can be provided by our kitchen.

Reunions for a large or small group would be very comfortable here as we can easily fit 75 people in the main house with buffet style dining. Our lovely gardens, porches, and patio areas add more space outside. There is ample parking for any occasion.
