Meadowbrook earns BBAV distinctionPublished 9:39pm Thursday, May 16, 2013
Meadowbrook Farm Bed and Breakfast, located near Chuckatuck, recently became one of 160 bed and breakfasts in Virginia to have passed the Bed and Breakfast Association of Virginia’s inspection.
Sixteen years ago, Allen and Debbie Bryant bought a 30-acre portion of what had been a 200-acre livestock and dairy farm. They dreamed of running a bed and breakfast after retirement.
The current main house replaced the original farmhouse in 1948. The cottage and other outbuildings were part of the original farm. A log-style grain storage building has been converted into a game room with pool table, televisions and other games.
“Having spent 35-plus years as professional engineers, our retirement goal was to do something completely different and own/operate a B&B,” Debbie Bryant stated. “However, you would be surprised at the number of opportunities there are to apply engineering principles to everyday operations of a B&B.”
Heidi Lanford, president of BBAV stated in a release announcing the distinction: “Being a member of BBAV is a guarantee to customers that you meet and exceed the expectations of a standard B&B, and Meadowbrook Farm B&B is no exception.”
