Overview

About the property

Food, history, outdoor activities, music, art all within walking distance

The Space:

Our condo is located in an iconic building with over 100 years of history. Spanning an entire city block, we share our building with the Hilton Hotel and have access to all of their amenities (including the gym and pool).

Our place is 1200 square feet with one bedroom (with a king bed) and ensuite full bathroom as well as an additional full bathroom (with washer/dryer). The Gourmet equipped kitchen with granite and seating for four at the bar.

Lots of original art gives the place an eclectic air. Comfy couches and 55" HDTV with cable and wifi. Incredible city views. Original wood floors, 12 foot ceilings. Very quiet!

The Neighborhood

Our condo is beautiful, but what makes it truly special is the city it's in. Richmond is the coolest city you've never heard a recent spate of publicity is changing that as we speak. Richmond ranked #3 in Travel and Leisure's best places to visit in 2016.

Foodie? National Geographic Traveler picked the top six places in the world for food travelers in 2016 (to include Tokyo, New Orleans, Peru and Morocco) and Richmond topped the magazine's list. Conde Nast calls Richmond "The Southern food destination you need to know about". USA Today says, "Virginia’s capital has long been a destination for good grub, and in recent years, the dining scene has catapulted onto the national stage." A mainstay on the lists of places to eat in Richmond is Rappahanock (an Esquire 2014 Best New Restaurant) which is just one block away. There are dozens of restaurants within walking distance.

Beer lover? Richmond is quickly becoming a major craft beer destination. With more than 20 craft breweries and more on the way, it's clear why the Wall Street Journal said Richmond "is home to one of the region's fastest growing beer scenes."

Art lover? Uber over to the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, which ranks as one of the top ten comprehensive art museums in the United States. Or, if you plan to be here on the first Friday of any month, you'll be in the middle of the First Fridays Art Walk, where galleries, shops, restaurants, non-profits, and more open their doors in celebration of art and community.

History buff? A trip to Richmond provides a window into a past - 400 years as a hub of history and politics - that few other destinations offer. Richmond boasts some impressive American Revolution sites (like St. John's Episcopal Church, "Give me liberty or give me death") and an extensive chronicle of Civil War memorabilia (found in the American Civil War Museum or the Virginia Historical Society).

Outdoor enthusiast? Richmond's location on the banks of the James River makes for a unique outdoor urban experience.

Water sports: RVA is the only urban setting in the U.S. with Class IV and V rapids. Whitewater rafting, tubing, kayaking, paddle available as guided tours or individual rentals.

Biking: If you are a biker (and Richmond was the home of the 2015 UCI Road World Championships) there's something for both mountain bikers and road cyclists. Mountain bikers will want to check out the 15 miles of trails in James River Park. Belle Isle offers sweat-inducing intermediate choices, while serious bikers should be challenged by the technical Buttermilk trail. The Virginia Capital Trail is a dedicated, paved pedestrian and bicycle trail that connects the Commonwealth’s past and present capitals of Jamestown and Richmond along the Scenic Route 5 corridor. The Trail traverses approximately 52 miles, four jurisdictions, and more than 400 years of history along one of the first inland routes in North America.

Hiking: For those of you on foot, the James River Park System is a 550+ acre natural oasis smack in the middle of the city. Opportunities abound for hiking, trail-running, rock climbing, fishing and more. It’s a sanctuary for humans and animals, so keep your eyes open and you may spot bald eagles, osprey, blue heron, otters, fox and muskrat. On Belle Isle, consider hiking the tranquil trail that skirts the perimeter of the island. To get to the island, you cross a suspension bridge that provides jaw-dropping views. The Richmond Canal Walk is an easy 1.25-mile paved trail. It is famed for the graffiti art murals that decorate the floodwalls and seamlessly blend with the striking river vistas.

Music Lover? From classical to classic rock, from hip-hop to jazz, from indie to metal, the Richmond Region's diverse and exploding music scene means you'll be expanding your playlist after your visit. Whether it's annual music event such as the Richmond Jazz Festival or Richmond Folk Festival, Richmond has numerous music events for all genres and audiences. Outdoor concerts, historic music venues, rooftops and clubs give you a vast array of options to get your groove on. The National is across the street and The Carpenter Theater is next door.

Getting around

An underground, assigned parking space is included. Please note, though, that the space is quite small and larger vehicles might have difficulty parking.

About Elizabeth Kellinger

My husband, Chris, and I love to travel - whether it's a cross country road trip or a hop over the pond, experiencing new places is a passion. About us: we own and operate a very small winery in Charlottesville, Virginia. I am also an artist and work in the Richmond condo, creating a variety of wine-inspired art. We love music and have been known to travel large distances to see our favorite bands.

We have four kids between the two of us, one grandchild, a very spoiled pup, two cats and seven chickens.

Perfect stay in Richmond!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a lovely time in this Richmond apartment. We were sad to leave—it felt immediately like home. Lizzy and Chris thought of every detail to make the apartment comfortable and enjoyable for guests. We wish we could give it 6 stars instead of 5!

The condo is beautiful! Elegant decor, but also very comfortable and cozy. The view is wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

The owner’s thoughtfulness can be found throughout the condo. Her art is lovely, the kitchen is full of anything you need, even the towels and the toiletries provided are luxurious. The location is ideal, there are lots of dining choices within a short walk. The owner is very easy to work with, highly recommend all around!
