The management company for all of the "All Season's" properties is excellent. They do allow pets with a pet fee (at some properties) and even provided us with dog treats as our dog sitter fell through at last minute and we ended up bringing the dogs with us. We stayed in Ella's cottage, which is part of this property, right... More

We were very worried about this stay as many of the reviews were negative. However, it's been taken over by new management and we could not have been happier! The room was clean and the bed comfortable. The best part was definitely the jacuzzi tub and fireplace. The staff was very accommodating with our requests (robes, extra bath/fire stuff...etc). The...

We liked the Back Porch but it wouldn't be in our top 5 Bed & Breakfast stays. The property was very clean and very well decorated. It was also easily accessible and close enough to the action. The owner was very cordial and professional. Personally I didn't care for the tub with a hand-held shower wand but some might like... More

Couldnt use outside hottub....too dirty with leaves and flower pollin. Outside patio chairs and tables were very dirty. No logs for outside fireplace. No extra hangers inside to hang clothes. Just very disappointed. Wont be back! Pictures are... More

Cons: Its a full 2 city blocks to Main Street and then 2 blocks down Main street to the shops. The hot tub was in a separate area - you had to walk out into the front yard and around to the side of the house. The wine corkscrew was broken and since we didn't bring our own, it made... More

The room was nice and clean but it was an awkward space. The hot tub was good but there was no ventilation in the small hot tub room and there was nowhere to Put the hot tub lid. Positive side- clean and so close to shopping!

I took my bride back to Fredericksburg for her birthday and she loved the Front Porch. We had lots of room, a wonderful bed and a great jacuzzi in the room. It was too cold to get in the hot tub though.

a cozy little cottage. and a great location. no shower, just a bath. for some that's romantic, but trying to get ready was a little awkward. but that aside the cottage was great. meal vouchers didn't get you much but every little bit helps. we'd go back next weekend if we could!

I absolutely love this place. The bathroom is very cozy and romantic. The bed is awesome. I slept like a baby. The Front Porch has been very clean each time I have stayed. The location is great. Just Wonderful!

My wife, Terri, and I wanted to explore Fredricksberg and in particular, heard about all the great B&B's. We went on-line and found "The Back Porch". The pictures of this unit are great, but don't do it justice. When you first arrive, you quickly notice how nice an quite the neighborhood is. The Back Porch is close to the charming... More
