Step out our front door and you'll see the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts right across the street, with the Virginia Historical Society just beyond. Walk two more blocks and you're at Monument Avenue, the only street in the nation designated a national historic landmark. But we're not just about history, exquisite architecture, and culture. We're two blocks from Carytown, Richmond's unique shopping district, featuring eclectic shops, restaurants of every description (including two 4-star restaurants), the historic Byrd Theatre, neighborhood pubs, and live music spots. We're also a seven-minute ride to Richmond's downtown, where you'll find the Capitol Building designed by Thomas Jefferson and the charming cobblestone streets of Shockoe Slip with its many restaurants and clubs.

I recently stayed in the Carriage House with my boyfriend for a three day trip to Richmond. This B&B made our trip a wonderful experience! The house is beautiful, clean and in a great location! The breakfast served is delicious, fresh and made-to-order. The wine and cheese served at 5 PM each day is a perfect touch that allows this B&B to stand out among the rest. Anna is an amazing innkeeper who really takes care of her guests! I definitely plan on returning...Thank you for a great stay Museum B&B!

My wife and I rented the Carriage House for one night and had the most lovely time there. The house is within walking distance of the VMFA, several interesting shops and some wonderful restaurants. The house is beautifully furnished and guests are welcome to read the many books on the shelves and to come and go as they please. The food was wonderful starting with the wine and cheese served at 5:00. The wines were great and the cheese was far beyond great! Breakfast is served at convenient times and the food is fresh, local and great. For dinner we walked to a very nice restaurant recommended by Anna- AMORE and it was fantastic!

The proprietor Anna is a wonderfully gracious lady. The house exudes culture and hospitality. Two separate libraries are filled with an array of literature and history. The evening welcoming reception offered a nice selection of wine, cheeses, and conversation with other guests. Imagine a breakfast of French pastry, Greek yogurt, accompanied by Ol' South home cooking and you begin to grasp this very special place.

My partner and I are from the U.K and had travelled to Virginia for a 10 day trip to celebrate my 40th birthday(he had booked me tickets to a Huey Lewis concert in Newport News). We spent two fantastic nights in Richmond at the Museum District B & B, greeted by Anna on the first night we were invited to partake in some wine and cheese around the table with her family who were visiting. They then told us of a great little pub near by where we whiled away the evening. The next day was fabulous, great weather and more helpful hints about where to get food and go for a picnic. That evening we had our cocktail hour with some of Anna's neighbours and other guests, fabulous company and we ended up going out for dinner with them. Add this amazing hospitality to the fabulous suite we stayed in, loved having our own steam room; not to mention the great location, right next door to the fine arts museum and you get a place well worth staying in if you're off to Richmond.

This was our 1st B&B experience in US prior visit was Quebec. We were very pleased in all aspects of our stay as indicated by the remarks above. There was a genuine demonstration of hospitality along with great dining, excellent service and pleasant conversations with friendly delightful guests. Final word, we booked return visit dates before leaving. Thanks Anna

Too much praise can conceivably sound false or hollow but to do less in this case would be a disservice to this wonderful B&B. It is, in a word, perfect. The location is unsurpassed, in the heart of historic Richmond's museum district. But that is just the tip of the iceburg! The Inn is a Museum itself, originally built as the home of Judge Rhea, and Anna is its expert curator (as well as host, tour guide, gourmet chef, etc). Our room was as comfortable as it was interesting and was stocked with every amenity. In the evening, don't miss the opportunity to enjoy chatting with Anna and other guests while enjoying a buffet of gourmet cheeses and wine. And Breakfast!?! Only a capital "B" can be used to describe Anna's Breakfast! Other adjectives that come to mind are generous, organic, local, yummy, and satisfying. Hint: You can skip lunch...you won't need it! Anna, thanks for a perfect stay!

Anna knows how to run a B&B. It was our very first stay and we will be back (hopefully soon). Our expectations were exceeded on every level.

We stayed here about a yr ago. It was our first long distance trip and I had always dreamed of going to richmond. We stayed in the most gorgeous of rooms! the innkeeper was extremely sweet! So nice that I left behind an article of clothing and she was so kind as to ship it back to me in PA! I would go here on a monthly baises if i could! the price was amazing and she was so helpful! this is the only place to stay and the location is great with amazing shops nearby to walk too!

The Innkeeper was so nice! She gave us extra croissant to we had food for our train trip. She really knew the area and made us want to come back again. The food was amazing and local (which we love) and she went OUT OF HER WAY to make us happy. I fell in love with this place and would recommend it everyone.

A friend and I stayed 4 nights at this absolutely delightful B&B Anna helped us find the sights we wanted to visit, fed us breakfasts that were enough to last us all day, and had such comfortable rooms for us to stay in that it was hard to get up in the morning. Her wine and cheese get-togethers for the guests held in the late afternoon were a wonderful way to unwind, share funny stories with all the guests, and find out more about other sights we wanted to visit. This has to be the best B&B I've ever stayed in. You'll love it!

Take a right on Boulevard and go 1.6 miles – take a right on Grove Avenue (just past the museums) and you’ll see our white picket fence on your left.
