About Us

Welcome to Maury Place at Monument, a Virginia bed and breakfast. Prior to becoming innkeepers, Mac Pence and Jeff Wells lived on Monument Avenue in Richmond’s Museum District for over ten years. Jeff and Mac opened Maury Place in October 2008 after two years of preparation, renovating the property, attending aspiring innkeepers' conferences, and consulting with experts. The innkeepers live on the property, on the third floor.

Mac and Jeff hope to offer a unique luxury experience to their guests. Their vision is to create a space where people can relax and renew their spirits. The décor is modern and elegant, but not formal, combined with luxury amenities and service that is relaxed and comfortable. Guests enjoy breakfast each morning on the innkeepers' best fine china.

Mac and Jeff endeavor to make it easy for guests to enjoy the best of Richmond, with its rich history, culture, arts, and great restaurants, and shopping. Guests can also get a taste of Virginia, as Maury Place exclusively features Virginia wines as the complimentary wine for guests. The innkeepers have made every effort to renovate and operate the B&B with great attention to history and environmental responsibility, reflecting their personal commitment to both, while maintaining the highest standards of luxury for inn guests.

Jeff worked as an attorney for the U.S. Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals for 18 years before deciding to become an innkeeper. Having grown up in Virginia Beach, Jeff attended Washington & Lee University in Lexington, Virginia, as well as the Law School at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, before moving to Richmond. Jeff enjoys decorating, shopping for antiques, theater, music, and great movies. Jeff also sings as a tenor in the choir at Second Presbyterian Church in Richmond, and has previously sung in the Richmond Men's Chorus. Jeff currently serves on the board of directors of the Richmond Triangle Players, a premier Richmond VA theater company within walking distance of our inn.

Mac is a Richmond native, and is owner of the Pence Auto Mall on Richmond's south side. Mac is the Maury Place at Monument webmaster, and oversees maintenance and yard work. Besides his other duties, he actively supports a number of international charities, having visited Guatemala, Malawi, and Haiti on church trips. He currently serves as secretary / treasurer of CEDEPCA (USA), a nonprofit organization supporting educational programs in Central America. Mac also enjoys reading, movies, playing tennis, and running along Monument Avenue with inn dog Chico. Mac has run both the Richmond Marathon, in 1999, and the Ukrops Monument Avenue 10k in 2000.

Mac and Jeff were married December 31, 2009 in Boston, Massachusetts, on the 10 year anniversary of a ceremony held in their home December 31, 1999. They love to travel to new places, and have enjoyed visiting Europe, Canada, and many places in the U.S. They have a vacation home in Lexington, Virginia, where Jeff went to college, where they often spend quiet time with Chico and Lucy.
