Only place for us!

5 on September 09, 2016

The in is close to Museums, Carytown and great restaurants like Rowland and Deco which is why we return. True, being a 100 yo + house it creaks but that is part of the ambiance. The street noise doesn't bother us and we have stayed in different rooms. While there is a lot of decor items to move around, we've never minded b/c all our needs are met in a delightful and whimsical way. The breakfast has 2 forms of protein along with healthy yogurt & fruit. During the day, the parlour is open to everyone to relax, read, have a FREE glass of wine, munchies, etc. The ONE B&B is a bargain compared to other places and unless booked, the ONLY place we'll stay!

perfect location perfect place

Visiting our daughter, who recently started working in Richmond and The One was perfect. It was almost next door, but even had it been some miles away, the combo of spacious room, quiet, and comfort would recommend it. Also, we enjoyed the stocked kitchen from which we could graze, rather than the standard fixed breakfast time. will definitely stay there next time.


Our stay

5 on July 28, 2016

We only stayed one night, as we were on the road to SC, but fell in love with the area. It seems like this part of Richmond is going through a revival. I enjoyed watching all the pedestrians, and many with their dogs. The B/B is located about 2 blocks from Cary street where all the cool shops and restaurants are. While the street seemed like a busy one, it did not interfere with our sleep. We stayed in the Dream Suite and it might have been the most comfortable bed we ever slept in. Would stay there again!


Charming room, bad food

2.8 on July 28, 2016

Creative decor, great location and a charming balcony are the attractions here. The breakfast food was bad--soggy, frozen pastries, distressed fruit, unrefrigerated meat. We had to go out for breakfast. This isn't really a bed and breakfast and should adjust its pricing and advertising to reflect that.


Quality Throughout this B and B

5 on June 29, 2016

From seamless check in with easy and clear directions for parking and entry, to the great fresh breakfast served. Being in the construction industry I look at things that maybe others might not. Quality of fixtures and construction. This historical property has been updated with top quality hardware and fixtures. The lighting, plumbing fixtures, toilets, shower, all the way down to the nice robes hanging on quality coat hooks. No detail is overlooked and the hosts are fantastic and friendly. You will not be disappointed! I will definitely stay here again.


All the comforts of home!

4.8 on June 28, 2016

June 26, 2016 Will definitely recommend The One B&B to all my traveling family & friends! The attention to detail is off-the-chain! We've stayed in our share of B&Bs across the nation, and NONE have reached the heights of creature comfort The One provides! Everything from snacks, sodas, beer/wine, a HUGE heavy Continental breakfast, room amenities, to bathrobes (for that quick duck-into the bath just outside our room). Loved the private side porch off our room...we hung out there well into the night people-watching (we could easily imagine living there!) I will say, while we enjoy the coziness of a B&B, we don't particularly enjoy the 'in-your-face' intrusiveness sometimes experienced by the hosts...this is where The One slams it out of the park! From reading the reviews beforehand, I learned their 'style' was more antonymous, as they tend to think of anything & everything you might need/desire during your stay, thus eliminating the need to be constantly underfoot. Their approach allows the guest to truly 'experience' the home as if it were their own...NAIL IT! Sadly, we were merely 'traveling through', and only stayed one night, but the location was perfect for a short stroll down to Carytown for shopping & dinner, then again for breakfast the next morning...what a great way to immerse yourself in the neighborhood. We are already planning our return, and will bring friends along to make it a 'party'...yee-haw! Ann & Brenda Virginia Beach, VA

Interesting B&B

Good location - quiet neighborhood - interesting décor and room setup.


Graduation Stay

The rooms are very welcoming. It was nice to have the self check-in so we could just settle in when we arrived. This was a repeat visit for us and we enjoyed it as much as the first stay.
