Our Vacation home

This is our vacation home...it had 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. We had 2 kitchens and lvongrooms. We enjoyed a hot tub right off the bedroom. There was plenty enough room for all 6 of us. We had shopping on the brain most days...LOL our place was just around the corner from the plantaion home.



This is the old original plantation. It is called Powhatan Plantation. This land was purchased from the indians and named after the chief who had owned it. This was Pocahantas father....just a but of history for everyone!!!lol It is so fun to know that you are walking in the same footsteps of so many people who were important to the founding of our country.


This is the kitchen for the old plantation. This building is a short distance from the plantation but the dining room in the mansion is on the second floor. All the food was prepared in the kitchen house but then was carried that distance for the owners to eat each meal. I find that so interesting. Now that it is a resort the kitchen is actually a resturant. We didn't eat there this trip but we did once before. There is a garden that surrounds the kitchen and they use them for the meals.
I will share more tomorrow and try to visit to....until then be blessed.

Looks like a lovely place. So interesting to know where Pocahantas' father lived. Can't wait to hear more about your trip.

What a fun vacation! Jamestown (in the above post) looks so interesting and cool, and what a great place you stayed!

I'm glad you had such a wonderful, relaxing time with your family.
