Are you serious? Im frankly surprised this place is open for business. Its so run down. We went for a long weekend and it is nothing as pictured on the website. The pool was dirty, the linens and bed was old and the "breakfast" was store bought pastries. I wish I had read the reviews too and what is really... More

I understand the drought because I live in Texas but don't false advertise. There was NO water, so no use of any boat or fishing, the hot tub was broken, we never found the European sauna.....The breakfast was store bought and certainly not deserving of what was on the brochures and internet!! The only positive was the massage from the... More

I wish there was an unlike button because I do not agree with their management and policy. I was with a party of 9, staying in 4 cottages. The night before we were to arrive there was a medical emergency and 4 of us were unable to make the trip, so on the day of our arrival we had to... More

The Back Forty is has a quaint, charming cottage set back from the street. It was very quiet and cozy. The antique furnishings reminded me of my grandmother and great grandmother. The food provided by Marlene and Pat was delicious and plentiful. We attended the Fat Tuesday celebration with Marlene and Pat. Their hospitality is amazing. We had a great... More

The Back Forty B&B with its beautiful five year old pics of the lake and the idyllic cottages are far from the experience we just had. I truly understand the drought issue, but why continue using pictures from the past. I could go on and on. The bottom line is that the owners are not interested in the well being... More

My girlfriend and I stayed at the Back Forty in June of 2013. The accommodations were charming and the hosts were very courteous. Water level in the surrounding creek was very low but I suppose this is normal for drought areas. I see a good deal of negative reviews from people who seem to not appreciate the charm, proximity to... More

We stayed in the Garden Room suite. A last minute decision for a weekend getaway. The online pictures looked fantastic. We have stayed at many other F-burg B&Bs over the years for about the same price, so our disillusionment came from the décor being very dated (the bedding and linens especially), and extremely uncomfortable mattress which resulted in neither one...

Cobwebs, dead bugs and live ones everywhere. .unhabitable conditions. Luckily no one was in one of the other cottages so we did not have to stay in the one we paid for. The cobweb photo was from the cottage we would have had to of stayed in if the other wasnt open. We actually would have had to rent a... More

This is quite honestly, THE worse experience I have ever had with lodging. I give it 1 star only because it DOES have a bed and bathroom. I actually left this property before my intended check-out because it was so bad and so was the service. To summarize- * A property that describes "overlooking a small lake" that overlooks a... More

We didn't stay, in fact we've never even been to Fredericksburg. This review is about our attempt at a reservation and cancellation. We called and made a reservation and about 10-15 minutes later called to cancel. We found out last minute that we were not going to make it. We called and were met with a very nice response and...
