Although we live in Richmond, Virginia, we wanted to try a bed and breakfast closer to downtown that we could recommend. We found it! Grace Manor Inn is beautifully decorated in period pieces and style. It was luxurious and elegant, but comfortable. Breakfasts were delicious and ample enough to serve as brunch. The pool outside was so inviting that we actually sat out there one afternoon (in November). The inn is close enough to the important sights, but very quiet at night. We never heard the 2 Yorkies, but they were very friendly and stayed with the innkeeper, Albert, who was very gracious and always made sure everything was to our liking.

My husband and I stayed in the Fensterer-Davis Suite, which was such a grand room. Very comfortable bed and bathroom was immaculate. My husband had informed Albert ahead of time of our diets (vegetarian/gluten intolerant) and there was really no need to worry. He made the most delicious breakfasts and fully accommodated my restrictive diet. Even made sure the third course was safe for me to eat. (I won't spoil the third course, but it is the best idea ever!) Their two dogs were sweet-- you would never know they were there when they weren't out roaming. We couldn't have asked for a better experience for our last getaway before our baby arrives. We will definitely be going back as soon as we can.

My husband & I stayed here for our 5th wedding anniversary weekend. The location was great because great eateries, museums, & shops were within walking distance. The gourmet breakfast was second to none. We stayed in the Carriage House, which is private & decorated modern with a flat in Europe feel. The owners were VERY attentive & very knowledgable on the area. They accommodated us with a late check-in which was nice since it was a 6-hour drive from our home. The main house is gorgeous & gives off a warm, friendly feel. We would definitely stay here again.

Albert was a gracious host and extremely helpful in providing advice on the sites to see in Richmond. His breakfast each morning was superb. Our room and sitting room were beautifully appointed. The bathroom, while private, did not have direct access from our room or sitting room. This would not prevent me from staying there again.

I stayed at Grace Manor Inn during my last business trip to Richmond. The Innkeeper has a wealth of knowledge about the home that's very interesting. I was the only guest staying in the Inn that night, so I had 7,500 sq feet to roam practically to myself. I am a vegan and upon telling the innkeeper Albert, he was happy to cook a gourmet plant-based breakfast for me. The breakfast is a ROYAL EXPERIENCE. I must have taken one hundred photos of the food he prepared so gorgeously. What a fabulous experience. The bed was extremely comfortable and I slept like a baby. I stayed in the Shortt Room and it was huge and beautifully decorated. I had a fridge, and all the kitchen appliance in my room so I never had to go downstairs to refrigerate the food I brought home from dinner. Love this place and will go back! Especially for his wife's vegan cupcake, the Mocha Pots de Creme--YUM!!!
