The Plains, Virginia

Centered on Virginia Route 55 (John Marshall Highway) and Virginia Route 245 (Old Tavern Road) 
The Plains serves as America’s front porch to the Shenandoah Valley, vineyards, breweries, fine dining and fun.
Leaving the traffic of Interstate 66 behind, the population of The Plains welcomes all visitors.

Welcome to the Front Porch!

Sit and stay a spell on our front porch and watch America go by. Our name is no accident, as people think our front porch is also “their” front porch, too. And yes, there’s a back porch in case you want a little more peace and quiet.

Whether you are here to pick out a gift, taste wines, celebrate a milestone or enjoy a meal, we have tried to create a welcoming environment.

Just let us know if there is anything you need!
