Colonial Beach Plaza is a beautifully restored 1900’s Victorian Bed & Breakfast. Furnished with antiques, it reflects the charm of the Victorian Era, including a mantled fireplace, claw foot tubs and Victorian Queen Ann beds.
Originally the Westmoreland Motel, this Colonial Beach landmark was built circa 1950, just half a block from the Colonial Beach Pier on the Potomac River. As ownership changed over the years, it became the Riverview Inn where it was completely renovated but maintains its original charm with neon signs and bright retro 1940’s-50’s colors.
