This is the Byrd Mansion; for decades it was the home of the Byrd family that seemingly half of VA - roads, bridges, buildings, etc. - is named after.
It is stunning - the common areas throughout the first floor, the suites and rooms on the second floor, the exterior pillared traditional front entrance, the grounds. Beautiful, true to it's history, incredible renovation. It actually did take my breath away when I walked inside for the first time, after driving up the magnificent entrance drive. You enter through the rear of the house and so are not prepared for the size and beauty of the mansion.
It is immaculate clean - my wife and I were so amazed at the cleanliness, we actually began searching for dust, it took us ten minutes to finally find some (a little under our bed).
All the modern conveniences - wireless internet, beautiful bathroom, appropriate lighting for reading, filling breakfast. The welcome reception with the innkeeper was very nice and broke the ice with the other guests, also he has many years of experience operating these establishments.
We stayed in the Nixon Suite - don't be scared off by the name, we loved the porch and the view was more than 180 degrees because it is on a corner.
A professional operation - if I was planning a wedding or major corporate event or similar, this would be my first choice. I could go on with further rave review, but I think you get the point. WOW incredible!!!
