TAPP into a good night’s rest by spending the night, the weekend or more at one of Tappahannock and Essex County’s hotels, B&Bs or camp next to a winery.

One of the best parts of a visit to Tappahannock and Essex County is taking the time to slow down to enjoy the simple pleasures inspired by a life well lived on the Rappahannock River. Don’t be in a rush. Spend the night with us or a weekend or even more. You’ll wake refreshed and inspired to tackle whatever lies in front of you.

If you like an old-fashioned B&B, you’ll find Southern hospitality and a magnificent breakfast, too, at The Essex Inn. If you’d rather, longtime hotel and motel chains are convenient to downtown, and for the real outdoor enthusiast, a campground with a bonus. It’s next door to a winery!
