Advice on Places to Stay in or Around Richmond


My wife & I are in our early thirties and are looking for a romantic B&B or hotel in Richmond or a surrounding area (within 2 hour drive).

We will be flying into Richmond the weekend of 12/19 (staying about 3 days) and are not familiar with the area at all. Just trying to use some airline miles for a last minute holiday getaway and thought this would be a great area in the Northeast to explore.

Any thoughts/ideas on places to stay & things to do would be sincerely appreciated!

I'd recommend either Williamsburg or Charlottesville. Each is an hour or so away. Charlottesville has a number of nice places to stay and wineries to tour. Williamsburg also has some very nice B&B's, etc., and of course, Colonial Williamsburg. If your interests include history, Williamsburg gets the edge, although Charlottesville has Monticello and other historic sites.

Let us know more about your budget and interests, and we can help more.

i might be a little late responding, but i can recommend a B&B in Richmond. Maury Place is located in the city and 1/2 block off of historical Monument Avenue. It's a beautiful property in a city setting. Richmond is a lovely and romantic place and the weather in December can be beautiful. While visiting, you can check out the fan district (lots of cool restaurants), take in a show at one of many venues-large and small, take a segway tour around Hollywood Cemetery, or take a walk down on the river. I don't think you need to go an hour away, when there's so much here.
