Happy Thanksgiving from our house to yours

Sunday, November 21st, 2010

Thanksgiving is a time devoted to bringing together friends, family, and food to share in the bounty that the fall harvest has brought forth.

Wishing you tempting treats for Thanksgiving

We thank each of you, our friends and guests, for sharing your precious time with us, and we hope the experience of your stay at our bed and breakfast inn has become one of your most treasured memories! Soon, this autumn pause will be over and we’ll all be rushing around with winter holiday preparations; so take the time to enjoy your family and this special time of year!

May your kitchens be filled with the warmth of your stoves, fabulous food, and the familiar chatter of friends and family!  Happy Thanksgiving from the William Miller House bed and breakfast in Richmond’s historic Fan District!

Richmond’s Most Popular April Events

Wednesday, March 24th, 2010

Our Richmond inn is “in the middle of it all” for two fun-filled Richmond events in April!

Wear your finest bonnet and enter into the Bonnet contest on April 4 at the Lee monument!

Venture Richmond brings Easter on Parade, that annual event bringing over 25,000 Richmonders and Virginians to Monument Avenue on Easter Sunday.  It’s not a traditional parade: attendees parade up and down scenic Monument Avenue between Allen and Davis Avenues.  Monument Avenue, named to the National Register of Historic Landmarks, will be closed to all but pedestrian traffic between Allen and Davis (or the Robert E Lee and Jefferson Davis monuments) on Easter Sunday, April 4, 2010 between 1 PM and 5 PM. The celebration includes music, arts, crafts, children’s activities, food, a petting zoo – and most importantly pet and people watching.  Everyone will be dressed in their finest or most outlandish regalia!  Highlights include a Pet Bonnet Showcase/Contest at 3 PM and a People Bonnet Showcase/Contest at 4 PM.  Don’t miss it!

Historic Garden Week in Virginia's Guidebook and tour tickets are the key to visit private homes and gardens April 17 though April 25

Historic Garden Week in Virginia, presented by the Garden Club of Virginia, is scheduled for April 17 through 25, 2010.  The Garden Club of Virginia has been holding this event for 77 years and devoting the proceeds to preserving Virginia’s heritage properties and gardens.  Though featuring homes and gardens all over the Commonwealth of Virginia, the Windsor Farms neighborhood of Richmond area will be featured on Tuesday April 20, Church Hill, on Wednesday April 21, and West Avenue, just two blocks away from our bed and breakfast, will open homes and gardens to visitors on Thursday April 22.  In addition special evening activities are planned Thursday at Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens.

Make your plans now to take advantage of these very Virginia events! Pick your guest room at our historic Fan District bed and breakfast and make it a Spring Fling! to remember on Easter weekend or during Garden Week or – even both.  We’d love to share the best of central Virginia with you.

Don’t Let Winter Alter Your Richmond Plans

Monday, February 8th, 2010

Even though Richmond has been belted with three snow storms this winter season, everything is cozy here at our Richmond bed and breakfast. Guest parking is clear and open: after we cleared it by shoveling, the west sun melted the remaining residue from the pavers. Strolls along the historic Fan Districts street’s and avenues present picture postcards around every corner!  Back at the inn, the living room/parlor boasts a warm fire and a fine place to sit and relax with a steaming cup of hot chocolate or a glass of wine.  Each of our guest rooms boasts its own individually controlled thermostat so you may bring your sleeping quarters to whatever temperature you find comfortable.  Each comfy bed is dressed in high-thread count linens, a quilt, and, during turn-down, a comforter/duvet is added – along with the next day’s weather forecast and a sweet treat.  You’re sure to be warm and cozy; so join us for a winter in-town get-away. Our local restaurants are still open, many are offering specials to encourage diners to visit.  Our hearty gourmet breakfast is sure to stick to your ribs as you venture outside. This is your chance to wind down to a slower pace and remember how fun snow can be.
