1853 West Grace Street , Richmond, VA 23220 USA (Show map)

Visit Website


Grace Manor was built in 1910 by William Zimmermann as his wife Louise’s “dream house”. The workmanship, detailing and materials throughout the house reflect the fashionable lifestyle enjoyed in the West Grace Street and Monument Avenue neighborhoods at the turn of the century. The Schicks purchased the house in 2003 and converted it to a Bed and Breakfast. Grace Manor Inn has 3 large guest suites with private baths, a business center, a formal dining room, a sunroom, and three formal parlours. Each day begins with a multi-course, gourmet breakfast accompanied by your choice of gourmet, loose teas or LavAzza coffee. The Inn also has three resident Yorkie mascots who are anxious to welcome you!

Wonderful place to stay

4.4 on December 21, 2014

This is a beautiful house in a convenient, pleasant neighborhood. There's a nice-looking pool in the yard that was still open and beautifully clean in December! I didn't swim but it made me want to come back in the summer. The food was incredible. I really wish they had one suite with a king bed and would have been happy to pay more for it. Overall definitely recommended.

Jewel in Richmond!

Our stay was simply amazing! The Grace Manor Inn has so much to offer from a fabulous gourmet breakfast to a beautifully decorated sweet and don't forget the cute Yorkies that are exceptionally well behaved! A five-star experience to be sure! My husband and I cannot wait to return for our next visit.

A lovely weekend

We just finished a weekend in Richmond visiting our daughter. Neither of us had ever been there before and our stay at the Grace Manor was wonderful, the room was beautiful, breakfast was great and the host most gracious. I would recommend this inn to anyone who is visiting Richmond, you won't be disappointed! Tom & Diane from NJ

Great Option for Business Traveler in Historic Fan District

4.0 on September 14, 2014

Nothing better for this weary business traveler than... free city parking, being greeted upon arrival at my car, and having my suitcase carried to my room! Located just a few miles off the highway...No need to drive through the historic fan district to a chain hotel again - I plan to stay at the Grace Manor Inn when in Richmond. If you are hotel fatigued and want that home away from home feel this is your place. Walking distance to restaurants and VCU campus. Beautiful and safe neighborhood for morning or evening walk/run up Monument Street. My 3rd floor room was spotless, had an adjacent sitting room with TV, and a private bath. The bed was comfortable, linens crisp, and plenty of soft bath towels were provided. Oh and did i mention the beautiful back garden/patio/inground pool? - Wow! Thanks to Albert for the delicious parmesean eggs/asparagus breakfast (no powdered eggs here), his hospitatility, and for accomodating my earlier dining time. Hope to be back soon!

Very nice stay at grace manor!

The Grace Manor Inn is a very nice house in the Fan District. We enjoyed the Shortte Suit very much. Loved the sitting room. Dawn and Albert we very gracious hosts and breakfasts were very yummy. After a long day of sight seeing around Richmond, the pool was a welcome cool down. And who can forget the Yorkies. So cute and friendly. Will definitely stay at the Grace Manor again. Thanks Albert and Dawn.

Wonderful three days.

Albert and Dawn are wonderful Innkeepers. The house fits all the elegance that a bed and breakfast should have. The location is excellent. Bring a swim suit as the back has a beautiful pool and sitting areas. My only suggestion would be that a mirror is put above the tall dresser in the Fenster-Davis suite. I am a tall gal and all the mirrors were too short for me and the lighting at the very charming sink in the room was too dim for a mirror. We enjoyed our stay and their recommendations and making a reservation for our dinner was very thoughtful. Thank you for a small fridge and wine glasses in the suite. Beth and David PS-have a wonderful journey this summer!

Grace is our place!

I can't say enough good things about this B&B. I would give it ten stars if I could. The place itself is beautiful and charming with it's original 1900's character. They keep it very clean and comfortable and the hospitality was unbelievable. They go out of their way to make everything wonderful for you. Our room had everything we could have possibly needed and more. The breakfast sealed the deal for me. As I sipped my mimosa in the dining room and waited for my first of three courses, I was positive I never wanted to leave. You know they are doing something right when you have had a jam packed day and you come back to a place that feels like home. Again, the host's were fantastic, and always made themselves available for you. They leave binders in your room full of places and restaurants they recommend, which I think is genius. We will have to come back when it's warmer so we can enjoy the beautiful pool area and fire pit. I feel like this will be a spot we will return to many times. My husband and I already call it "our place" in RIchmond and recommend it to everyone we know.

Old Southern Elegance and a Gourmet Breakfast

5 on May 11, 2014

This was a fantastic place. Our suite was beautiful, with brand new wooden floors, a bedroom and a sitting room, all in antique furnishings and antique rugs. The breakfast was an experience. Albert, the owner, had a 3 course gourmet breakfast everyday prepared and served by himself, complete with mimosas and Bellinis. I am glad I didn't have to leave before his breakfast. We met other guests at the family style breakfast and enjoyed the conversation. One was a Navy engineer, one a librarian attending a genealogy convention. I liked it so well, I wanted references to other B and B's in different parts of the country that shared this quality.

Wonderful respite!

Richmond Stay

Our stay at the Grace Manor Inn and the generous hospitality of Albert and Dawn was unparalleled to any other B&B I have stayed in. They are professional, accessible, kind, and have a full understanding of dietary needs especially Gluten allergies. Thank you so much Albert and Dawn. The Vegas Ladies.
