A gorgeous furnished property in a fabulous neighborhood with every thought put into what a traveler wants and needs in a city away from home. The owner, Anna, was born to be a hotelier: gracious, charming, welcoming, warm, friendly, helpful. The patience and detail she exhibited in explaining the highlights of Richmond's attractions made us feel like we were her...

This was my third visit to this B&B and on each occasion I think "it cant get much better" but it seems to on the repeat visit. It is in a great location for the bars/restaurants on Carey Street. There is a great breakfast in the price- cooked to order and locally sourced - set me up great for the...

Too much praise can conceivably sound false or hollow but to do less in this case would be a disservice to this wonderful B&B. It is, in a word, perfect. The location is unsurpassed, in the heart of historic Richmond's museum district. But that is just the tip of the iceburg! The Inn is a Museum itself, originally built as...

I stayed at the Museum District B&B two nights and was just amazed. I used to have a soft spot for the exceptional character of bed-and-breakfasts (often quirky and sometimes aesthetically unsettling but at least interesting and filled with local flavor). However, I've gradually grown accustomed to the amenities and comfort that comes with moderately upscale hotels, and it's easy...

I have stayed at this B&B twice in the past year while in Richmond for business. It is not conveniently located for my particular business meetings but it is worth it to me to stay here because it is so special. The rooms are beautiful, very clean and are appointed with the nicest furniture and linens and practical features. There...

I traveled to Richmond for an interview, and the university put me up here. I'm glad they did--it was the perfect place to crash after a long, hard day. The proprietor strikes just the right tone, helpful without being overly solicitous. I was running late in the morning, and she volunteered to iron my shirt (actually, she wouldn't take no...

We stayed one night for our anniversary, and really enjoyed ourselves. The B&B is literally right across the street from Richmond's fabulous art museum, and a short walk to the cute and lively Carytown area of Richmond. Anna was very helpful, and steered us perfectly to fabulous restaurants, shopping, and sights. Our favorite part was the generous evening wine and...

This has to be the best value for money accommodation around in the US. Our only fault (and this is minor) was the room size which was a little cramped. The experience began with our host meeting us at the train station and ferrying us to the accommodation. The room was provided with every item you might need including a...

As a frequent traveler for both business and pleasure, I'm fairly particular on what I need in lodging. Comfortable, clean rooms, wifi, easy access to meeting facilities, conceirge service if necessary, and the ability to work unbothered and order a glass of wine at 11:00 pm. While these features are common (and increasingly pricier) in large hotel chains, it was...

Staying with Anna is as comfortable as visiting an old friend, one who lives in a lovely and extremely comfortable house, and who happens to be a fantastic cook. As an innkeeper Anna is attentive but never intrusive. Her location is superb for visiting nearby museums, shopping in funky one-of-a-kind stores, and eating in some of Richmond's best restaurants. The...
