It's strange... no matter how many times you ring that little bell, no butler ever comes running. Point yourself in the pampered direction you've been dreaming of and experience the riches of charming Richmond, Virginia, with this week's gilded getaway to the Historic Mankin Mansion.

Prepare for a two-night stay for two in one of the lovingly restored inn's sterling suites or cozy cottages, daily gourmet breakfast brought right to your room each morning, an evening wine and cheese picnic, and fresh baked cookies upon your arrival, on a Monday through Thursday stay from now 'til October ($225) or a Thursday through Sunday stay from November 2011 'til March 2012 ($325).

Turn up your nose at common vacations and indulge in tranquility with a dash of Southern hospitality at the 7,000-square-foot estate where you'll find formal gardens, a game room, fountains, a Bocce ball court, and complimentary high-speed Internet connection.

And with your choice of VIP at your side, you'll see why Mankin Mansion was named one of's Top Ten Wedding Resorts in Virginia: its romantic setting, complete with a 100-year-old Sycamore tree on the grounds, is perfect for snuggling beneath.

You'll have your own personal driver in a shuttle service to and from the nearby Richmond airport and concierge services available for making the most out of your visit to Richmond's restaurants and shops.

Give your compliments to the chef while listening to live music at Balliceaux, a farm-to-fork establishment serving up such culinary creations as Seville orange-glazed pork belly and pan-fried rainbow trout with polenta and chorizo ragoût. Then, walk it off with a stroll down Broad Street. (Insider tip: The art galleries that populate this street stay open late each first Friday of the month.)

So go ahead, put your feet up and uncork a night to remember. An Escape like this is here to serve you.

  • "The Ramirez family makes every moment perfect at this unique property. The grounds and cottages are elegant, relaxing and inviting. The amenities are top notch. Every room is beautiful with attention to detail."
