The One Bed and Breakfast is named for it's unique location at 1 N. Boulevard on the corner of Boulevard and Main in the heart of the Museum District. It is a great spot to catch the fireworks display every year on the 4th of July. The annual Anthem Marathon in November is a favorite Richmond tradition and the race course passes right by our front door! Of course any day is a good day to relax on the porch at The One and just enjoy watching the activity on the Boulevard!
The house, listed on the National Register of Historical Places, was originally built in 1914 and still has the original stained glass windows and many of the original characteristics that add to it's charm. The property was fully renovated in 2005. The home was featured on the annual Museum District Mother's Day Tour in 2008 and again in 2011. In 2012 The One Bed and Breakfast opened it's doors to nearly 900 visitors who attended the 2012 Virginia Garden Tour. The One has been voted by Style Weekly readers as The Best Inn / Hotel in Richmond for 5 years running!
We take pride in our logo that comes from the unique design represented in each of the seven magnificent stained glass pieces throughout the home.
"What a great stress break to have stayed in such a lovely home. It was like visiting a close family member to have experienced such a comfortable, safe and carefree environment. We loved the wonderful blend of feeling like you were in the heart of all the enjoyable sites of the city while being in a very intimate space. We are looking forward to returning soon!"
"BEST BEST BEST EVER Bed and Breakfast my husband and I have stayed at!"
'The One exceeded our expectations. We chose it because of the close proximity to our son's apartment.... we will return because of Sean and Polly and their outstanding hospitality. The house is an absolute gem and is within walking distance of many fine restaurants and museums."
Baby E (Eugene) is the resident beagle at The One Bed and Breakfast. If you have allergies not to worry, as he is not allowed in the the guest quarters, but he'll be more than happy to greet you with snuggles and kisses if given the opportunity. We recently had to say goodbye to his big brother Marvin (pictured to the right) after 15 years, so E is extra love sick these days without his buddy!
