My boyfriend and I stayed here Fri-Sun (2 nights) off of a deal I found on living social. The house was beautiful, large, and looked like a classic bed and breakfast! The owners are a married couple but I only met this husband and he was so friendly assisting us with our bags, giving us a tour of the home and features, and he cooks the breakfast every morning! You also get a cupcake in the morning with your breakfast as his wife owns the local cupcake shop in Carytown. Everything in the room was comfortable, clean, and the bathroom was spotless. It was so nice to get away and not stay in a standard hotel. There's even a pool in the back! I will definitely be returning and recommending this to family & friends. PS-they have 3 yorkies that are adorable!

We enjoyed our two night stay very much! Albert was quite the host, very congenial and informative. We definitely would return for another trip. Their two Yorkies (dogs) were very cute as my wife wanted to take them home with us Brian and Betty Zittrain

This was a two-day break from the Christmas rush, and we spent it in elegant luxury, with gourmet breakfasts and friendly, knowledgeable innkeepers who took great care of us. The Inn is awesomely beautiful, and it's located near many Richmond attractions. We visited the VA Fine Arts Museum and the Virginia Repertory Theatre, and walked into the Jefferson Hotel to see the beautiful Christmas decorations. Albert and Dawn (and their three adorable Yorkies). My husband says it's like living upstairs in Downton ABbey - and that's a pretty good description!

We've been to Richmond several times, and Grace Manor has provided by far the best experience. Not only were the rooms beautiful and the breakfast delicious, but Albert provided great travel tips for Richmond attractions, dining, and even cooking! His hospitality was excellent and he made sure that from before the trip -- he called several times to ensure he'd be there when we arrived -- we felt welcomed and taken care of.
