The Caroline House was lovely and the Sawyer Room was absolutely beautiful. We had a pleasant stay and the breakfast was delicious. However, we were disappointed with the level of service or lack of that we received. We called upon arrival as recommended, and Jessica (who was very kind) met us at the Caroline House to let us in.

This was our second stay at the 1890 Caroline House. We were in the Luke Henry room the first time but we were able to peak in the William Riley Suite and decided the next stay would be in that suite. It has a very generous living room, bedroom and bath with duel vanities, spa tub, separate glassed in shower... More

Stayed here two nights and loved it! I grew up in "the 'burg" and was thrilled to see how much attention has been paid to restoring and revitalizing the lovely downtown area. The Caroline House is a terrific addition to this project. We were in the Black & White suite and checked in (a bit more chaotic than it should... More

We arrived at the1890 Caroline House on a wet Friday. After we alerted the staff at the sister property the Richard Johnston Inn of our arrival, we were taken in to the absolutely beautifully restored 1890 era house. We stayed in the Luke Henry room which could not have been any cleaner, prettier and decorated better. We sneaked a peak... More

We stayed in the black and white suite upstairs. It was such a luxurious, sexy room- I couldn't believe it. Even my husband thought it was gorgeous. We had the place to ourselves, we had a late check in. The hostess left out a bottle of wine, cookies, chilled bottles of water for us. We had a quick dinner down... More

We will definitely be back! Beautifully decorated and warm and friendly. We brought wine and cheese and enjoyed them on the back patio in the garden. You can walk to shops, restaurants, and basically all over town from here. We stayed in Sawyer Scott room. Breakfast was generous and delicious! We had gourmet omelettes, fruit, scones, and an assortment of... More

We were married at the end of May in Fredericksburg. The Bride's base was the 1890 Caroline House, where she had the place to herself Thursday night (staying in The Sawyer Scott room), and with close friends staying in the other two rooms on Friday and Saturday night. Several members of her family stayed at The Richard Johnston Inn just... More

Nice place but could not stay there because they were not there and did not answer their phone or return calls. Same problem for their other property. Seems with two Inns they could have someone who could answer the phone.

Your review is rather inadequate. Trip Advisor is a place for guests to reflect on their stay and help others with a making good decision based on the reviews from other travelers alike. We are very sorry that you were unable to reach us and that we missed your call. We are a small business and do not have anyone... More
