Claudia is absolutely wonderful to work with. She stayed up late waiting for us to arrive to check in. The breakfast was fantastic. The Ragland in and of itself is extraordinary. Staying here made our vacation experience that much better. Definitely not your typical hotel. We are most definitely going to comtinue staying here, and cannot wait to come back!

Had a wonderful two night stay at the Ragland. Our Host Claudia was knowledgeable about the Mansion and surrounding Petersburg area. For History fans the area is a treasure, and that includes the Ragland Mansion. A lovely courtyard to have coffee or drinks in as well.

My husband and I love finding out of the way places, especially with a history. Ragland Mansion fit that bill for an overnight on a recent trip to VA. Claudia was a welcoming, gracious, helpful hostess who cooked a delicious breakfast. We had a first floor room on a week night so had the whole place to ourselves (a wedding... More

Our host Ernest was hospitable and very helpful during our stay. This grand home is historical in nature, and any renovations that may have occurred over the years were done as to preserve the character of the home. Very few modern appointments...the staircases are a bit steep/narrow and "feel" like 150+ year old stairs...the home smells (tastefully) like a 150+... More

The Ragland Mansion is a gem! An elegant old home, with great sitting areas and a lovely and gracious hostess, Claudia. My wife and I had a hard time finding a good place to stay to break a long trip from Folly Beach, SC to Washington. We didn't want to stay in an I-95 motel, but B&Bs with availability in... More

This place is great. Claudia took care of me and my bride to be here while we explored Petersburg and lucky for us we had the whole place to our self. With a wonderful breakfast we are just falling in love with this great old building. We can't wait to stay again.

Great place to stay! Very clean and comfortable! Breakfast was the bomb! Bacon, eggs, toast, fresh fruit and orange juice. Hostess, Claudia, was the best! I will go back and stay again! Price is reasonable, can stay here for the price or cheaper than hotel!

our host was friendly, knowledgeable and added much to our visit. The house is old but very clean and well-furnished. Breakfast was hot and delicious. The owner was very accessible and took the time to visit with everyone. We plan a return visit next year.
