A great location in which to visit the Randolph Macon College campus, to walk to some nice restaurants, and from which to stroll among park-like settings. The Residence is also a very comfortable home and has a gracious atmosphere.

Beginning with the greeting we received as we entered the house, to our breakfast under the gorgeous Swarovsky chandelier, we enjoyed our stay at the Residence Inn. The elegant baked apple in cream, the beautiful omelet with turkey bacon and fruit, served on elegant china, as well as the delightful conversation with the Caylors, would definitely win our return and...

We ve stayed at many bed and breakfasts, and they re all more fun than hotels. Now and again something is truly memorable. We heard classical guitar music coming from The Residence music room and went in to see what album was playing. It wasn t a recording, but the host practicing a piece for his church. We gave him...

I absolutely loved the service, food and comfort shown to us at The Residence last spring. We especially appreciated the history of the fine old house, and the care taken to preserve traditions from a gentler era. A well-deserved AAA 3-Diamond rating!

We stayed in the spring. What a lovely time of year! There are several parks nearby, and bicycles are available. Breakfast was different every morning - always delicious! It was definitely worth the extra dollar!

Stayed in the Pearl S. Buck room. Short walk to Randolph-Macon Women's College. There were some problems with airconditioning in the summer. Excellent breakfast and hospitality.
