Kingston Plantation and Inn

bed and breakfast

Located on the North River in Mathews County, Virginia, Kingston Plantation is surrounded by large shade trees, sweeping lawns and flower beds that continue to waterís edge. Kingston offers a distinct backdrop from which to host your function with two hundred acres of manicured lawns and gardens, 1700 feet of river frontage, as well as pristine natural areas.

Kingstonís 10,000 square feet of living area features six fireplaces, random width hardwood flooring, oriental rugs, beautiful antiques, fine art collections and other notable pieces. The 950 square foot family room is warm and inviting with stained oak paneling. A large wet bar and twelve foot bay window overlook formal gardens and a panoramic view of the river. Intricate crown moldings, mahogany paneling and a marble fireplace are highlights of Kingston Plantationís library. 

The charming second floor veranda is a favorite gathering place overlooking the water and rear gardens. Below, a pathway through natural areas continues over a bridge through a gazebo to the swimming pool and tennis court. An alternate path leads to the dock where one can enjoy the areaís waterways.

Three suites and two rooms with adjoining bath are available for guests at Kingston. Also available next door, a separate carriage house with a large living room, kitchen, bedroom and bath offers more privacy.

Kingston Plantation specializes in weddings, receptions, reunions and corporate events. Groups of up to 650 may be accommodated under the festive white tents that cover the brick patio and lawns. A marquee covers an adjoining patio providing movement from the family room to the main tent without exposure to inclement weather. Additional protection is provided by clear side curtains that can be drawn as necessary.

At Kingston Plantation, the warm hospitality of our owner/manager Mrs. Ann Foster, combines with a serene environment and stunning landscape to provide a fairytale setting for anyone desiring an elegant and tasteful vintage wedding or event.
