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 passes right by our front door and of course any day is a good day to relax on the porch at The One and enjoy an inpromptu gathering with friends and neighbors!
The house, listed on the National Register of Historical Places, was originally built in 1914...that's right...we are celebrating the 100th birthday of The One all year long!! 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. Most recently, The One Bed and Breakfast opened it's doors to nearly 900 visitors who attended the 2012 Virginia Garden Tour.

"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."
We take pride in our logo that comes from the unique design represented in each of the seven magnificant stained glass pieces found throughout the home. All of the stained glass is original to the home and still beautifully preserved since 1914.
Marvin and Eugene are the resident canines at The One Bed and Breakfast. If you have allergies not to worry, as they are not allowed in the the guest quarters, but both are happy to greet visitors, if given the opportunity. Marv and Little E, as we call him, enjoy the life of luxury on The Boulevard and spend the majority of their time lounging in the afternoon sunshine that streams in from Main Street. They certainly have the good life!!
