Welbourne is an eighth generation family home on 520 acres located 1 hour west of Washington D.C. The main house dates from 1770 with additions as late as 1870. The house is a Virginia Historic Landmark and is on the National Register of Historic Places. In the 1930’s F. Scott Fitzgerald and Thomas Wolfe stayed at Welbourne. Both writers published stories using the house as the setting.
All rooms are full of antique furniture, artwork, history books, and are considered to some as having a look of, "faded elegance".
All rooms at Welbourne must be shared due to limited capacity in the house. We have twin beds, queen, and king beds available. Space is EXTREMELY limited at Welbourne so the sooner you apply the better chance you'll have of getting a good spot. If you require your own room you will need to organize your own housing off-site or pay double the fee for one week to stay on-site.
Save money on the camp and bring a tent! Campers must provide all their own camping gear. Bathrooms and showers are available in the main house to all those sleeping in tents.
Bathrooms and Amenities
Most bathrooms are shared. We provide clean towels and clean sheets to all campers at the beginning of the week. Unlike hotels, there is no one to clean your room, make your bed or wash your towels every day. This is all your responsibility.
Three meals a day, snacks, coffee, tea, sweet iced tea, and water are all provided to you with your Meals & Accommodation fee.
We highly recommend partaking in the onsite food element of the camp. Its truly one of the best parts of the experience!
