Rosewell Plantation

Top Sites to Visit While You’re Here

Away from the hustle and bustle of the Peninsula and Southside, Gloucester County offers hidden gems of its own, attracting a wide variety of visitors with interests ranging from history to water sports to shopping and more. If you are looking to explore the interesting spots around the Inn at Warner Hall during your visit, consider a short drive to the following spots. We’ll even give you directions!

1)     Main Street: Gloucester is known for its quaint small town atmosphere, and its Main Street area epitomizes its character, featuring unique shops, Gloucester’s Colonial Courthouse, Museum of History, and more.

2)     Historic Rosewell: Located along the shores of the York River, Rosewell’s ruins have inspired poets and architects that have visited there since Thomas Jefferson. Its history is just as rich as the Inn at Warner Hall.

3)     Nuttall’s Store: This historic landmark is the perfect picture of the classic general store that so many of us remember from our childhoods. The store continues to serve as the “community center” for Ware Neck and features a post office, grocery store, wine shop, fishing area and more. Ask us when you’re here if they have any special events happening during your visit. They often feature talented musicians for evening entertainment.

4)     Beaverdam Park: With more than 635 acres of water, Beaverdam Park offers the only public freshwater fishing on the Middle Peninsula; not to mention miles of hiking trails where you can get up close and personal with a variety of wildlife and ecosystems.

5)     Gloucester Point Beach: Looking for a little sand? For the beach lover in all of us, Gloucester Point Beach Park offers plenty of sand leading into shallow, calm water. The park also features shady and grassy areas with picnic tables, shelter and beach house, and is located right next to the College of William and Mary’s Virginia Institute of Marine Science.

6)     Brent & Becky’s Bulbs: Owners Brent and Becky Heath love to share their many ideas to help make your garden beautiful when you stop by their Bulb Shoppe, eight acres of themed gardens and the warehouse where they contract and sell bulbs all around the world. Look around Warner Hall’s grounds and you’re likely to see some of the flowers from their bulbs.

7)     Abingdon and Ware Episcopal Churches: Established around 1650 and 1652 respectively, these active parishes feature early English architecture and manicured grounds that will intrigue the historian as well as those with a love for early construction.

8)     Mathews County: You can’t miss the charm of Gloucester’s neighboring county, Mathews. Offering many historic landmarks of its own, and a charming downtown area, Mathews also has miles of shoreline bordering the Chesapeake Bay; a dream for kayakers, sunbathers and anglers alike.
