Berry Hill Resort - Virginia's Premier Wedding, Reunion and Conference Destination

Berry Hill Inn and Resort...

Berry Hill is the perfect Southern Virginia getaway for your classic Southern Wedding, a Relaxing and Active Family Reunion and/or an Invigorating Work Conference.

We're off to Virginia.... 

"The Berry Hill Resort & Conference Center, Virginia's premier wedding venue, resort and conference center, is nestled amongst a tree-lined forest covering 650 acres in the heart of historic South Boston, Virginia. This former antebellum plantation estate and (now) National Historic Landmark welcomed its first guests to the beautiful Virginia countryside in 1728."

Our family had a fabulous 'get-away' from the Raleigh/Durham, North Carolina area last weekend.  In under two hours, we were in the excluded and classic Southern locale known as Berry Hill Resort and Conference Center. 

We loved our time there.  The vast property is quiet and well-manicured to keep it in pristine condition.  We got settled into our two room suite with adjoining doors. 

The Master Suite was lovely.  We loved the antebellum furniture and the canopy bed.  Our room was very spacious and had a nice deck facing the beautiful woods and we rocked in the rocking chairs.  This was wonderful for Boulder Mountain Man on Father's Day morning.  He loved waking up early and looking out at the forest. 

The rooms had a nice sized bathroom with lots of furniture for your clothing and necessities.  We loved the quiet resort.  And we had wonderful coffee in the room so that is always a bonus. 

The Tigers, can you believe are old enough that they loved having their own room with two queen sleigh beds.  And their own spacious bathroom and closets.  And they had a refrigerator in their room with our water and cold drinks.  So yes, they were spoiled. 

Christened my new Pool Bag in style....

Mom got to relax a little.... 

The bathrooms were so elegant.  Had all the amenities.

Isn't the property lovely.  We were enjoying the peace. 

The first night we got settled in and had dinner at Darby's.  We chose to eat in the gorgeous and Springy Courtyard. The flowers and birds were beautiful and the food was very fresh and tasty. 

Dinner at Darby's.  We loved eating al fresco with the boys.  

Look, Boulder Mountain Man was thrilled to have these homemade Chili Fries. 
On occasion, he splurges like this. He said they were amazing. 

I loved these Chicken Quesadillas.  They were tasty and the sauces were fresh. 
It was more than I could eat, they were wonderful. 

Later that night we got out our blankets and what else, the family light sabers, and enjoyed watching the stars.  We even all saw shooting stars!  Bliss. 

Then it was time to work off dinner with a light saber duel!  Too fun.  Let's say we slept really well that night. 

The next morning, we enjoyed a continental breakfast in the Green Room.  Talk about beautiful atmosphere. 

Then we had a fabulous time in the Town of South Boston with the Director of Tourism, Linda, for  a tour of Halifax County.   Linda is a joy and is incredibly knowledgable of the history and happenings of South Boston and Halifax County, Virginia.  We even got them on Twitter, y'all!   Follow them at GoHalifaxVA! :)  Their new Tourism Office is waiting to warmly Welcome you to the County.  See, they do it in style ...

 The Prizery Center for the Performing Arts .  We loved seeing these old Tobacco Warehouses restored in to a state of the art performing center!   In fact, Cinderella is playing now! :) 

We learned the history of the Crossing of the Dan River. 

Then Linda surprised us and took us to the Robert Cage Artist and Sculptor Farm
We got to meet the Artist and his wife. They are so kind and spent part of the afternoon
welcoming us all to their farm. 

The boys met their newest baby goat and got to pet it. 

Here are the sweet couple.  They were on their Saturday errands and stopped for us. 
How welcoming and friendly.  I loved talking with her and my husband talked with 
Mr. Cage for a while and toured more of the land. 

The Happy Couple.

Here we are with Linda, Mr. Cage's wife took the picture. We loved visiting here. 
And we were blessed with perfect weather. 

See his beautiful work!

 It was a short drive back to Berry Hill for more loveliness in the Country on the Plantation. 

We got home in time for a quick nap and then got ready for our DInner Reservations at Carrington's of Berry Hill.  This restaurant was like living in Gone With The Wind.  We enjoyed fine dining in the Berry Hill Plantation.  We had a private Dining Room, the Rose Room which looked much like a library with beautiful views of the front lawn and the front porch. 

The food was wonderful.  The sweet tea was so Southern and ... sweet.  She actually made it half-and-half for us and it was still very tasty and sweet.  

Here is a view of the many acres property....  

Inside the beautiful Berry Hill original Plantation. 

 Dinner was served: 

The most amazing Shrimp and Cheddar Grits were "Better than Charleston!" 
And there was enough for two meals. 

My husband loved his Chicken Cordeau Blue.... It was the best, too. And Abundant.   


The boys... they had fun and loved... their Pizzas!  I know, we let them order Pizza.
Fine dining with Pizza, yes, we did it. 

You can see, it was well received.  

We had plenty of food left over and we even brought a Strawberry Cheesecake slice 
back to the room for later. 

The next morning was Father's Day!  What a treat!  The boys went Fishing with Dad for Father's day right at Berry Hill!   You know we're active so we also played Tennis, Ping Pong, Pool in the Plantation! and Basketball and Swimming!

Berry Hill fun! 

Father and Sons Fishing on Father's Day was a delight.  Mom got in on the fun, too.

These moments.... 

 We loved all of the Sports!

There is a whole lot of fun to be had at Berry Hill and Halifax County!  I hope you get to visit.  Take a walk into Southern History.  Relax and enjoy!

Thank you Berry Hill and Halifax Tourism for the visit!  We look forward to seeing you all again.  We had a wonderful time in your lovely County!

Warmly,  Carolina Mama
