Historic Mankin Mansion Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #4 of 13 Richmond B&B and Inns
Reviewed March 11, 2009

I traveled to Richmond for business and decided to try something different. I travel quite a bit and always stay at either a Marriott or Westin. It was a refreshing change to stay at an intimate and comfortable B&B. The grounds are fantastic and I can only imagine what a great place it is for a wedding. I will definitely stay here on my next trip to Richmond.

My wife and I stayed for 3 nights and attended a wedding at the Historic Mankin Mansion and, in a word, it was WONDERFUL!! Both Martin and Paula (the owners) were great and helpful in every respect. The accomodations were very nice and the welcome basket of fruit, etc... added a nice touch. The wedding was beautiful and the reception (also done on site) was a ball! After having stayed in several B & B's, we highly recommend this B & B to everyone!

Stayed one night for business in Richmond. The location is close to the city, but tucked away in a tree-lined neighborhood. My colleague and I received an upgrade from management to the Farmer's Cottage which was lovely. Very cozy and quaint, it was great to relax there after a day of travel and business. In the morning, we were brought a beautifully presented breakfast that was delicious. Did not get to see the main building because time didn't allow, but we were thrilled with the Farmers Cottage. Would highly recommend for business or vacation travel. The proprietors were a pleasure to work with.

I was only to stay here for a short stay, but was very impressed with not only the facility, but the owners as well. Paula and Martin are dear people who go out of their way to be helpful. And the property itself it beautifully maintained.

The room I stayed in, the Carriage Room, was cozy (yet still spacious). Absolutely wonderful for a romantic getaway or to just treat yourself. The game room at this B & B is full stocked with pool tables, DVDs and much, much more.

The rates are very reasonable for such a great escape. Highly recommend.

We wanted to "get away" for a one-night stay somewhere close to home so we chose the Historic Mankin Mansion. What an excellent choice! Kind of a hidden secret just outside Richmond on a beautiful piece of property. Since it was in the Spring, all the annual flowers, trees and shrubs were in full bloom and it was magnificent. At night, the grounds were even more beautiful with twinking white lights everywhere. This was once a working brickyard where bricks were made so there are stunning "works of art" made out brick everywhere. Our room was spacious, meticulously clean and very private. We were served our coffee in our room the next morning on a beautiful tray along with a fresh red rose and newspaper. After relaxing with the paper, we had a delicious hot breakfast in the main dining room of the Mansion. The owners are friendly, caring and very eager to make your stay the best that it can be. We would highly recommend this B&B to anyone. This is also a wedding resort so spread the word to your friends who are planning their wedding.

We not only held our daughter's wedding at The Historic Mankin Mansion Memorial Day weekend of 2007 but we booked all the suites and cottages for her wedding party, guests, and parents.
Paula & Martin, along with their event coordinator made every detail special and truly made the entire wedding FAIRYTALE!

From the time our guests were greeted by the valets through the ceremony, reception, after hours party, through our overnight stay and fabulous breakfast buffet the following morning, each and every little detail was constantly attended to! Martin is a wonderful DJ and kept the "party" rolling all night long! Not once did we have to think about or worry about anything! We got to have a wonderful time without any fuss or muss!

If you have any type of event and want to wow your guests, and yourself.... or you just want a wonderful setting to run away to for a night or two.....go visit The Historic Mankin Mansion!
You will be very glad you did!
