Having stayed in numerous B&B's I must rate the Grace Manor Inn at or near the top of the list!!
Albert is an awesome host with lots of panache! The house is resplendent with antiques, family treasures and art. Our room, the Zimmerman Suite, was on the top floor. A bit of a climb but welcomed exercise after visiting some of the gold star recommended restaurants in the handy guide book in each room. Be sure to walk the 5 blocks to Edo's Squid! Packed with locals, college students and us! The whole fish was superb! Also great was Mekong with great beer.
But this is about The Grace Manor Inn. If you are going to Richmond you gotta stay here. We live just down the road in VA Beach but this was worth the stay over!!
And the breakfast..... Never had one better. The first day it was scrambled eggs on toast with prochutto wrapped asparagus. But that was the second course, the first was fresh fruit in a greek yougurt. And, of course the last course (ops, that's the surprise!!)
The second days breakfast was just as spectacular.
Don't even think about staying anywhere else!!
