Maury Place Noted in Washingtonian Magazine!

We are honored to have been noted in the most recent issue of Washingtonian magazine! The September issue on "Fall Weekends" notes "36 Easy Getaways that require little planning and are close by." We are featured on page 88 in an article by Ellen Ryan entitled "Easy Street." The article focuses on Carytown, our favorite shopping district right down the street! Some of our favorite stores such as Mongrel, Bygones, and World of Mirth are noted along with For the Love of Chocolate, whose truffles we feature in our guest rooms! Of course the Byrd Theatre, Richmond's Landmark Movie Palace, is noted as well. As Ellen observes, "a leisurely stroll along [Cary Street] offers interesting shops, stylish dining, and an old-fashioned movie house." She continues, "There's even an old-is-new-again mansion nearby for a relaxing end to your day." (That's us!). Maury Place "is a sumptous four-room B&B just off stately Monument Avenue."
We were also gratified to see the large lovely picture of our library! The issue offers great ideas for weekend escapes, and we are honored to have been included.
