The house brought you back to the Gilded Age. Very unique. Loved all the antiques. The owners were very knowledgeable of the original family, construction of the home, and history of the surrounding area. The breakfast was excellent. No complaints.

If you are looking for a place that has historical appeal, this is for you. The house was filled with antiques, the bed was comfortable, and the snacks and breakfast were wonderful! The outside of the house is being renovated as it is definitely in need of it, but the inside was just fine. We also liked that it was quiet and within in walking distance of the 5 Flags Center for the concert we were attending along with lots of dining options for dinner before the concert. We also walked to the Farmer's Market in the morning before we left. If we go to another concert at the 5 Flags Center, we will definitely be looking to stay at the Richards House again.

The inside is beautiful and the breakfast delicious. There does need to be some updates to the broken windows and deteriorating curtains. Outside is under construction so looks a little sketchy but all that being said, we did enjoy our stay.
