Guided Tours

Located in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, Belle Grove offers its guests a rare opportunity to see a Northern Shenandoah antebellum plantation that began in the 18th century and still is farmed today. Belle Grove’s expert volunteer docents and staff lead guided tours of the 1797 Manor House.  Guided tours typically last between 45 minutes and one hour.  We strongly suggest that you allow time to tour the outbuildings, visit the Museum Shop, and enjoy the spectacular landscape.  Picnic tables on the lawn are available for visitor use.  Thank you for leaving your pets at home.

Although Belle Grove's property is owned by the National Trust for Historic Preservation, the Trust does not annually budget funds to support Belle Grove.
