About Belle Meade

Our Story

Twenty-one years ago, Mike Biniek and Susan Hoffman left their urban life to fulfill their dream of creating a model community for sustainable living. Belle Meade has grown into what it is today because of their flexible, nurturing patience as they developed the different components of their holistic vision. 

Mike, B.S. in Biology, is a life long student of nature and wildlife. He practices his ideology of creating a more sustainable, healthy planet as he cares for the animals, plants, and community of Belle Meade. Mike also serves Rappahannock County as a member of the Board of Supervisors.

Susan, Ed.D. has over four decades of experience as a teacher. She is the Head of Belle Meade School and the Day Camp and has inspired thousands of local kids and young adults to develop life skills and an appreciation for nature in addition to providing a curriculum to facilitate academic excellence.

Together, Mike and Susan offer warm hospitality to their B&B guests.
