My wife and I came to the Inn at the Olde Silk Mill to celebrate the wedding of my nephew. First the Inn itself. It is a B & B in the historical part of the town. The building itself is old. The furnishing are what you would come to expect given the history of the area. We found the... More

The Inn is in a prime location and has a certain charm for a 1930's building. However, the in is dingy dark, with low lighting, stairs to second floor and if there is an elevator it was cleverly hidden from view. Desk staff very accommodating and pleasant. Room was small and while clean, attempting to give an era look it... More

We really rely on Trip Advisor before we book a stay, so when we saw that there were no other B and B rooms available in town for 5/16, we thought this would be a safe bet. The rating is 4/5 stars. I'm giving it one star because the room was clean. It was also dark and dingy. The bathroom... More

The Staff did everything that they could to make our stay enjoyable. Great location for those that like to bike. Historic Fredericksburg is worth the trip. Will be back. Many nice restaurants and a mellow pace.

Our family rented out the entire hotel for our wedding party. It was absolutely fantastic. I personally stayed in the king suite and it was wonderful. The only thing I would suggest to travelers is to bring a multi plug device if you have cell phones and other electronic devices. They were very limited plugs in the room. We utilized... More

We stayed in a Parlor Suite and just loved it. The second room was great for TV, games, reading and had a good size mini fridge. We slept great in the big comfy bed with very fresh clean sheets. The Inn is older but well maintained, decorated in real antiques and extremely clean, which I really appreciate. Breakfast was served... More

Was there in town tending to some family business, and turned it into a pre-valentines getaway for my girlfriend and I, and all pre-arrangements were taken care from the wine being ready for us in the bedroom I pre-ordered for us upon arrival and was an very wonderful evening for us and we look forward to returning in the future!

This is not a traditional B&B, but more of a hybrid between B&B and Boutique. It is an old property (built circa 1930) as a popular Motor Hotel on the route running from Richmond to Washington before the I-95 days. The current owners have resurrected it with antique furnishings and a B&B feel. They also own the former Silk Mill... More

My mom and I stayed here for 2 nights during the Candlelight Tour. I wanted it to be a relaxing and rich in history weekend, which I totally achieved with the help of The Olde Silk Mill. The atmosphere was relaxing, the place looked gorgeous and the staff are very friendly. Everything you need is in the room, the beds... More
