We stayed over just one night but felt very at home in that short time. Pam was helpful ahead of our stay getting recommendations to us (check out Chez Nous for dinner - you won't be disappointed). The inn shares a driveway with an equestrian center and you can walk around the grounds and see the horses. It is a beautiful property. There is warm and cozy all-season sunroom off the living room where my husband and I shared a bottle of wine after returning from dinner. Out of the way a little bit but we will return when in the area.

Pam, the manager was extremely helpful in making our stay delightful, including drawing detailed maps so we wouldn't get lost.

I stayed at the Inn of Richmond while being filmed for an equestrian training show. Pam, the Inn keeper was extremely friendly and helpful. The Inn has a home away from home feel. Homemade pastries in the morning were a delight.

We stayed for two nights while participating in the Horse Master with Julie Goodnight shoot. The Inn and the Equestrian Center are lovely, the weather was perfect, the views were outstanding, and we had a terrific time. Pam is very accommodating and fun to talk with. Wish we could have stayed longer!

Had a lovely time - Inn is beautiful, on gorgeous grounds. Close to everything. Inn keeper delightful and welcoming. Room was very clean, but needs to replace carpet on the stairs to match the rest of this very pretty Inn. We would definately go back!!

Inn at Richmond Baked French Toast
This recipe is a guest favorite ... finally sharing the recipe with our friends! But, it's still better served in our dining room! :-) 1 loaf of either Challa or Vienna Bread, unsliced 6 apples and/or pears, peeled, cored and sliced Fresh Cranberries, blueberries, raisins or dried cranberries 12 eggs 1-1/2 cups of half and half 1-1/2 cups of 2% milk Cinnamon Nutmeg Vanilla Slice bread in nice size chunks and place in large mixing bowl. Add fruit. In separate bowl wisk eggs and then add remaining ingredients, wisk together and pour over bread and fruit mixture. Fold together so that bread, etc. is combined with custard. Pour all into buttered glass oven safe dish. Place in 350 degree oven for approximately 45 minutes, check to be sure that toothpick inserted in center comes out clean before removing. Can take up to 60 minutes to be fully cooked. Remove from oven, place foil over top and allow to rest for about 5 minutes before cutting. Enjoy!
