"The Dorset" is a spacious and recently renovated guest cottage in a quiet family neighborhood offering guests a comfortable and relaxing retreat while visiting the vibrant Richmond area. A space complete with a full kitchen, dining room and private patio is perfect for couples, families, business travelers, sports and cultural enthusiasts, foodies, and adventurers.
A single level property, The Dorset offers a brand new king size bed in the spacious master bedroom with an en suite bathroom. This sparkling new bathroom with a double vanity contains a full bath/shower in addition to a separate shower unit. Two twin roll-a-way beds are accessible in the master closet as well as additional blankets, linens and floor fan.
The Dorset is located behind the main house and across the back patio. A private parking space is provided on site near the carport side of the property. There is a common patio between the guest house and the main house; a popular spot on temperate evenings. If you prefer more privacy, a private patio is through the back door of The Dorset. A small propane grill is provided. If you'd like something from the garden just let us know.
As the hosts, we live in the main house with our almost grown children. While we are delighted to have you stay at The Dorset, we will also respect your privacy. You may call or text anytime for questions or concerns. If you are inclined to chat over a glass of wine or cup of tea, please let us know!
The main house is also home to 2 maltipoos. They will be restricted from the common areas during your stay. Please do not attempt to pet or play with them. As cute as they are, ignoring them is best.
Families are welcome, however, the guest house is not childproof. It is most suitable for children aged 6 and up. Please let us know if you have a little one so we can plan for your stay safely.
A la carte items for purchase, such as: breakfast items, wine and cheese, picnic lunch, dinner for two ingredients, specialty snacks, etc., can be requested through contacting the host in advance of your stay. Several area grocery stores will now deliver for a flat rate with just a call or online order.
