When a preschool teacher runs a bed and breakfast, you can be sure that children will like it there. Some of our most satisfied guests are kids taught by innkeeper Pickett Craddock during the winter at Amazing Life Games preschool in Washington, D.C.
With its 400 acres, Oak Grove Plantation is great for hiking, biking and games of hide-and-seek. A tall magnolia tree is a favorite for climbing. Children love swinging from the tire swing and playing in the sandbox. Indoors, they enjoy playing with the Lego set and a variety of board games. And they’ll want to play with our two friendly standard poodles, Niko and Bonnie.
In a review on Trip Advisor, one satisfied customer called Oak Grove “a child’s paradise.” She wrote: “The boys could run around in the yard and we relaxed on the porch. There are trains throughout the day that pass through the property. There is a wooden bridge to stand on as the train passes underneath. We heard one coming, got to the bridge just before it passed underneath and the engineers waved as they went underneath. Then as end passed us, the engineers flashed the lights and blew the whistle. Pure joy for kids.”
Wrote another: “Oak Grove Plantation is perfectly suited for children – and anyone who wishes to get away from everything stressful and modern for a few days.”
