Built in 1899 and fully restored in 1991, there are seven guest rooms with baths (some very luxurious), parlor, sitting room, dining room, large kitchen, and owner’s  (and assistant innkeeper’s) quarters in the lower level. Evidence of the quality of Page House Inn is its AAA 4 Diamond award status, the only lodging in Norfolk to boast that award, a status which very few B&B’s achieve.

Located in the historic Ghent District of Norfolk, the inn is next door to the Chrysler Museum and is near a variety of great restaurants. This Norfolk VA bed and breakfast for sale is fed by many local institutions like the Chrysler Museum, Sentara Norfolk General Hospital, Children’s Hospital of the Kings and Daughters, Eastern Virginia Medical School, The Jones Institute for Reproductive Medicine, Old Dominion University, the Hermitage Foundation Museum, and numerous events and festivals that occur in Norfolk. There are great restaurants within walking distance, and all major amenities are nearby.

The B&B offers its guests a highly hospitable experience with spacious rooms and suites that are attractively furnished, baths that are well appointed with granite counters and top of the line fixtures, a plethora of amenities like snacks and drinks available at all hours, and a very friendly staff. The inn is kept immaculately clean and in good condition.

Unlike many urban inns or properties, this Norfolk VA bed and breakfast for sale boasts a geothermal HVAC system and irrigation system for the lovely lawn and gardens. There is adequate off-street parking for the guests. The commercial grade kitchen is large, making for a wonderful place to create magnificent dishes. Spacious common rooms with good flow lend themselves to gatherings, receptions, and small business meetings.

Page House Inn enjoys a solid occupancy rate around 50%, largely on the basis of referrals and repeat guests. In recent years the marketing has not been all it could be, which affords upside potential in new hands. The property itself and the location, plus the beautiful rooms, make Page House Inn an attractive buy at the price of $895,000.
