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.
