The Museum District B & B is wonderfully located in Richmond's Fan district - directly opposite both the Museum and Art Gallery (has terrific pictures from the Mellon collection.) It's a short walk to the magnificent long stretch of period homes in Monument Avenue and there are lots of good local restaurants also within walking distance. We stayed in the Judge Rea Suite - loads of space and a magnificent period-style bathroom as well as a sitting room and separate study. The house itself is full of charm and atmosphere - books and magazines everywhere. The owner Anna is a mine of information about things to do in this interesting town and is very knowledgeable about food and the best places to eat. Her breakfast was magnificent - including seasonal berries, warm croissants and freshly baked bread. We were sorry not to be staying for longer. This must rate as one of Virginia's top and most characterful and charming B & Bs.
