My wife and I stayed here for two nights while visiting the Fredricksburg & Chancellorsville battle fields. Couldn't have found a more centrally located Inn plus the Howison house is a beautifully restored house of the period which added to the experience. Also, Karen & Warren were not only very hospitable but knew the area well saving us much time... More

It was my great fortune to blindly choose Breahead as my "headquarters " for a weekend excursion to visit the battlefields in the area. Located within the Fredericksburg Battlefield park , this historic home was comfortable and charming ,and the grounds were beautiful .Karen and Warren could not have been more warm and gracious as hosts. Because there is so... More

Thoroughly enjoy a midweek getaway with one of my very bestest friends. Accommodations were beautiful, the host and hostess most personable. Will return soon, so I can explore the beautiful grounds in warmer weather.

Private get-away accessible to historic downtown and local distilleries/wineries. Grounds full of civil war history. Inn Keepers Warren & Karen made us feel most welcome. Very spacious accommodations and fantastic breakfast. Hope to visit again someday!

The morning of one of the Civil War's most important battles, Gen. Robert E. Lee, a friend of the builder/owner of this manor, John Howison, had breakfast here. His famous gray horse, Traveller, was tied to the chestnut tree. The tree's still there, much of the original furniture, a cabinet full of artifacts found when the house was recently restored,...

Braehead Manor was a wonderful place to stay on our visit to Fredericksburg and the battlefields. We enjoyed everything about it - the rooms, the breakfasts, the grounds, the ambiance, the other guests, and our hosts. What a wonderful way to learn more about the past as well as the present.

It has been a couple of weeks since our stay at Braehead Manor and I can’t stop talking about it to friends and family. We have been doing girl’s history get-a-ways for about twenty years now and have stayed at many historic Bed and Breakfasts. All have been nice, but Braehead has shot right to the top. The home, built... More

Braehead Manor is a B&B treasure located on the Fredericksburg Battlefield. Robert E. Lee ate breakfast here before the 1st battle of Fredericksburg in 1862 and tied his horse, Traveller, to the still-existing black walnut tree on the south lawn. The innkeepers, Karen and Warren, are the epitome of hospitality. We stayed in the Jane Howison Beale Suite which was... More
