The owners of this B&B really have thought about things that are welcome surprises to travelers. Nice comfortable beds and spacious rooms, of course, but also little snacks and cold water, DVDs to take back to your room, freshly baked cookies, gourmet sit down breakfasts, a full-size coffee pot with plenty of coffee in your room, even a garment steamer!...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Mankin Mansion. The area is beautiful and very nicely kept. Our Gardener's cottage was very cozy, comfortable and very spacious. The breakfast each morning was exceptional. Paula and Martin were wonderful and very friendly. They have great recommendations for area restaurants and things to do. It's only a 10-15 minute drive/cab ride to restaurants,...

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Mansion on February 3rd-5th...our early Valentine's Day celebration. The room was fabulous, the service was impeccible and the food was simply delicious. Our gracious hosts were top notch. Martin and Paula recommended sights for us to see (really enjoyed the winery tour), places for us to go (loved Carytown by...

My boyfriend and I bought the LivingSocial deal for a weekend vacation and early celebration of Valentine's Day. The Mankin Mansion is an absolutely beautiful property. We stayed in the Farmer's Cottage and it was so cozy. The beds were amazing--we slept like babies. The only thing that got us up in the morning were the delicious breakfasts--eggs benedict with...

Historic Mankin Mansion is located about 15 minutes outside of Richmond. The Mansion is Beautiful, the grounds are great and the location is very nice.

We were a little concerend about the...

If you are looking for a very quiet, very friendly, and comfortable bed and breakfast, this place is the BOMB. I went last week, in January of 2012, and it was the off season I suppose. But it was everything they said they would do. I got a living social deal and wasn't really expecting much more than a bed...

We found Historic Mankin Mansion as part of a LivingSocial deal. We bought the two night deal, not really knowing what to expect. When we arrived, we were a little late, but Martin had called us ahead of time telling us where we could find our arrival packet - it was a very considerate step. The suite we had was...

Bought the Living Social deal and enjoyed our trip more than expected. We had a gorgeous room and the most hospitable hosts. They love what they do and it shows. The breakfast was delicious and so were all the little extras, like the cheese platter and snacks that were in our room. The only downside was that they were having...

My boyfriend and I purchased the Living Social deal for a 2 night stay at the B&B. We ended up receiving everything in the deal plus more than we ever expected. The owners are extremely hospitable, attentive and accommodating without being intrusive on the experience, which can sometimes happen at B&B's. The Gardener's Cottage had more than enough room for...

We were greeted by the owner who was very friendly. When he showed us to our room, it was actually a seperate cottage, with a living room, 2 bedrooms, full kitchen, it was a great place; the only drawback was the very small bathroom. But it was a very nice place, very quite and the breakfasts were wonderful! It was...

“The Carriage House was romantic and cozy. The only negative is that it is closest to the road, which is a bit loud during early evening and during the day. It gets quiet at night.”

“The Jefferson Suite is very spacious...has 2 rooms in it. The double shower is a must! The room has everything that you need and a few extras! Gets a little chilly at night....the room is adjacent to the lobby, so you do hear some talking at times, but wasn't an issue at all.”
