At the risk of repetition I echo the other reveiwers for this B&B. We were half way through a 25th wedding anniversary trip and this was the best place we stayed at. The soiree of cheese and biscuits enabled us to meet other guests ( and neighbour). The conversation was fun and stimulating. Anna was a perfect host and it...

Anna, the owner, is extremely friendly and goes way beyond "the call of duty." The B&B is authentically appointed, her breakfasts are outstanding and generous, and each evening she provides guests with wine and cheese. We stayed in the Judge Rhea suite for two nights and the carriage house for one; both were very comfortable. There is parking in back....

during my civil war history tour I visited a lot of places. This b&b proved to be an excellent location to see all of Richmond and vicinity. I had a fantastic time here.

We went to Richmond to see the big Picasso show at the museum. We were lucky enough to be able to stay with Anna again for several nights. All the praises are true--Anna is wondeful!

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...
