Historical Traveler Reviews Grace Manor Inn Richmond
Our #1 Choice for B&B
Of the many b&b's we've stayed at, the Grace Manor Inn is by far the most opulent and beautiful. At the same time, it's also very cozy and friendly. The inn features several large, luxurious sitting rooms, each decorated in its own unique style. Dawn and Albert Schick are a younger couple with fantastic taste - they've managed to find some amazing pieces that fit perfectly into this historic city mansion. We enjoyed a two-room suite (the "red" room), with complimentary wine and cheese upon arrival. Within 10 minutes of unloading our bags, we were sitting on a 2nd-story back porch, sipping wine and kicking back. After a restful sleep in a very comfortable bed, we enjoyed a delicious breakfast in the dining room (they don't miss a thing, even in food presentation), under a gorgeous chandelier, and unfortunately had to hit the road early. We would have spent another week there had we not been in the middle of a long road trip! It may sound like I'm gushing over this place, but there simply aren't enough great adjectives to describe the experience. Thanks guys, we'll be back!

You won't want to go home
Our stay at the Grace Manor Inn was an indulgent pleasure. We intended to just spend 1 night mid-week, but 1 night wasn't enough. Luckily for us, a different suite was available so we could extend our stay. The inn, just steps away from Monument Avenue, inspires one to stick around and take advantage of the lovely rooms -- and save the sightseeing for another day. The Inn is sumptuous, from the detailed restoration, furnishings, linens on the bed, magnificant suites, to the cheese sampler in the mini-fridge, wine, and the decadent 4-course breakfast. The hosts were perfectly gracious and accommodating. The garden is a inviting spot to read and lounge, rivaled only by the 2nd floor balcony. I will go back. I highly recommend this Inn to everyone who travels to Richmond.
Comfortable, unique, fantastic amenities, great hosts!
Making online reservations was easy. Dawn and Albert sent directions and asked if there was anything special I'd like to do. Albert bought a special bottle of my favorite wine, and Dawn scheduled me for a facial, massage, and the best eyebrow waxing/shaping I've ever had. The B&B is gorgeous and extremely comfortable. In addition, Dawn prepared a snack for me each day. I also had a little fridge in my room stocked with water and cheese and fruit.
I was also impressed that Dawn and Albert provide a computer for the guests' use, free of charge. The breakfasts were excellent, and I was able to invite my son and his friend for breakfast before I left.
I frequently travel and love to stay in B&Bs. Dawn and Albert have a beautiful, comfortable home, far above average in comfort and amenities. They are wonderful hosts, too!
Elegance, Warmth, & Hospitality Beyond Your Dreams!
Grace Manor is the consummate B & B, Dawn the consummate hostess and Albert the consummate host! I adore staying in B & B's and have experienced a great many lovely ones all around the world but nowhere have I found more attention to detail and more willingness by the hosts to meet every foreseen and unforeseen need and want. Dawn's breakfast was a masterpiece and Albert's charm and skills in serving it a delight. The location in the Fan District is fabulous - I was almost convinced on my early morning walk that I had been transported back a century or two to a truly charming era. The Manor itself is marvellous to experience and Dawn and Albert have achieved the miraculous in so quickly bringing it presently to its past glory - and doing so in record time. However, the alacrity with which they have furnished the Inn has in no way sacrificed good taste and pleasing reults. Each room is more breathtaking than the one before. Staying at Grace Manor is a wonderful way to simultaneously experience the graciousness of the old South with the friendliness of the new South. I wholeheartedly and without reservation recommend the Grace Manor Inn.
Definitely one of the best!
I stayed at the Grace Manor Inn for two nights while I toured Richmond. The Fan area is lovely, and the Inn is right in the middle, within walking distance of the VMFA. The hosts were friendly and unobtrusive, making terrific breakfasts, inquiring if there was anything I needed, giving me computer directions to the restaurants they recommended, all excellent. The Inn itself is lovely, with spacious public areas and very friendly atmosphere. The suite where I stayed had a lovely clawfooted bathtub, Tom's toothpaste, and a suite of sitting and bedroom. The furniture was lovely, and the room temperature was just perfect. I had a very friendly breakfast both days with interesting people. I would come back anytime.
The things we liked best about the Grace Manor Inn were the gourmet breakfasts, the separate sitting and bedrooms, and website with online availability and reservation service. The location is right in the heart of the fan district, close to museums and gorgeous Monument Ave homes. Our hosts were very attentive, hospitable, and knowledgable. They recommended an excellent restaurant, made dinner reservations for us, and gave us detailed directions. We highly recommend this Bed and Breakfast!
Home away from home
We have returned for a second visit to The Grace Manor Inn. We were here the same weekend last year. Dawn and Albert are exceptional hosts! They make you feel as if you were one of the family. The house is beautiful and the food is excellant. We would recommend this to anyone who will be away from home but would like to feel "AT" home.
Exquisite Presentation and Taste
We stayed for two lovely nights in the Shortt suite, going to bed after a glass of wine provided in the room by our hosts, and sinking into a large comfortable bed. We awoke with sunlight streaming into our beautiful Victorian room and the smells of chorizo sausage wafting up the three flights of stairs. The breakfasts were wonderful: the presentation elegant, the tastes finally mingled and the service impeccable. The hosts have good memories, noting preferences for tea with honey, or decaf coffee at breakfast, and they are graciously accomodating. The house is on a tree-lined street one block over from the Monument Street and we ventured out on two morning walks to explore the neighborhood. All in all, a fantastic place. Highly recommended.
Do not stay here!
My husband and I also stayed here expecting a relaxing experience. Our stay was anything but relaxing. Although the rooms were very nice, (we stayed on the second floor) the two Yorkies that live there kept barking and woke us up at 5 a.m.! The amount we paid to stay at this establishment could have been better spent at the Jefferson. I won't be returning again.
You Must Stay Here!
My husband and I stayed at the Grace Manor Inn in the Fan District in Richmond, VA in October. We we absolutely pleased with our experience. The Manor is a three-storied Victorian home that while revovated with modern conveniences, maintains its integrity as a historical home. Hosts Albert and Dawn (and doggies Coco and Bear) are naturals and will surely pamper you as guests. Dawn is a gourmet cook and Albert serves the breakfast.

... so I went to look. Of course it was off. Made the train anyway, with maybe 8 minutes to spare. Trip was uneventful; train ran on time. Some people don't seem to get the concept of the quiet car, but the conductor took care of that. Arrived in NYC on time about 1:35.

Well Capt as Scotty would say "Ye cannee change the laws of physics" but if you have an overloaded 18 wheeler and it's a Sunday you drive like the clappers so you get there before Monday because the Mermaids that operate the compulsory weigh stations on major highways don't work on Sunday's. Well that's ...
Early flight out of Colorado Springs and uneventful trip home. We got in early evening to discover that the house-sitter (now fired) let the cat run out of water. Poor little thing was thirsty! But she's fine now and I have another house-sitter for future ventures.
Back to school on Thursday for a two-day IB workshop, and all teachers report Monday. Summer is just about over!
... rotunda, which contains busts of every U.S. President from Virginia and a statue of George Washington, is impressive, as well.
While we still had some items left on our agenda, the day was getting late, so we decided to return to our condo and try to visit the sites we missed on Sunday. Tomorrow we travel to Norfolk, Virginia where I will visit the museum dedicated to one of my World War II heroes while Michelle and Laura visit the zoo ...

As well as touring the Capitol I also managed to fit in a short tour of the public areas of the Executive Mansion. I couldn’t help thinking about what dirty dealings might have taken place fairly recently in the rooms I was wandering through. The corruption scandal and trial of ...
