“Repeat Visitor!”
Reviewed May 17, 2011

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 personal guests and not as if she had done this a hundred times. We also loved the Judge Rhea Suite. It was spacious and rich with special touches, including a fabulous bathroom. Our 4 days flew by much too quickly. This B&B and Anna's warmth makes us hope we have another chance to visit and enjoy more of Richmond's charm.

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 day. The owner Anna is an excellent host - she knows all the cool restaurants to visit and always has good advice on places to go to.

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 the home of Judge Rhea, and Anna is its expert curator (as well as host, tour guide, gourmet chef, etc). Our room was as comfortable as it was interesting and was stocked with every amenity. In the evening, don't miss the opportunity to enjoy chatting with Anna and other guests while enjoying a buffet of gourmet cheeses and wine. And Breakfast!?! Only a capital "B" can be used to describe Anna's Breakfast! Other adjectives that come to mind are generous, organic, local, yummy, and satisfying. Hint: You can skip lunch...you won't need it! Anna, thanks for a perfect stay!

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 to get spoiled.

The Museum District B&B really is the best of both worlds. In some ways it feels more like a boutique inn. The breakfast is superb, and the architecture is obviously that of a historic house, but it's all pleasingly appointed and immensely comfortable at all levels (mattresses, sheets, towels, robes, &c). One would be hard pressed to find more thoughtful, satisfying accommodations. As everyone agrees, Anna is just perfect.

Room Tip: Judge Rhea's suite is fantastic

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 is off street parking and wireless internet for no extra cost. Breakfast is substantial and delicious and most evenings there is complimentary wine and unique and wonderful cheeses. The B&B is located next to a cool neighborhood called Carytown that has great restaurants, yoga and fun shops. This place would also be great for a friends getaway or a romantic time with your partner. Anna the owner is very gracious, helpful and a fabulous cook.

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 for an answer). My only regret was that I did not have time to join her for a glass of wine in the evening! The room was comfortable, clean, and private. The location was good, right across from the museum and within walking distance of several restaurants. All told, a great spot!
