MY husband and I stayed here for 10 days with our dogs. The breakfast was always fresh and delicious.I wish we could've stayed here again before we left Fredericksburg. The room was very nice, the courtyard was beautiful. Close to a lot of shops and restaurants.

There were so many great things about the Richard Johnston, but it was all the little things that impressed us so much! The great tub, strong water pressure, and wonderful bath products products made for a fantastic end of the day! Add to that the late night chocolate chip cookies, the always ready to help and smiling staff, and the... More

We recently spent a night at the Richard Johnston Inn and were extremely pleased with our stay. Chuck and Jackie greeted us immediately upon arrival, and we found them very charming. We stayed in Room 2--the king size room at the top of the house, and were delighted with our selection. The room was spacious and VERY clean. Other visitors... More

Four couples stayed 2 nights while enjoying our college reunion in Fredericksburg. The public rooms and bedrooms were beautifully decorated, there were ample areas to congregate both indoors and outdoors, and plenty of magazines, books, DVDs, computer, newspaper, regular and decaf coffee/tea, juices, candy and other amenities available throughout. Walking distance to many restaurants and shops. Nice snacks and wine... More

My husband and I recently spent two nights at The Richard Johnston Inn. Not only is the Inn beautiful and comfortable but the staff was incredible!

We stayed in the Kitchen House -a secluded room separate from the main house right off the courtyard. It was quiet and had a restful, private ambience. Having a window of time to arrive for breakfast rather than a single seating time really accommodated our schedule. The jetted Jacuzzi tub was so enjoyable. And Cheryl was so wonderful. She secured... More

My Mom and I came to Fredericksburg to cheer a friend that was running in the Historic Half. We chose the RJ Inn because of it's ideal location. The Inn is on one of the main streets of Historic Fredericksburg and is walking distance to many restaurants, coffee shops, and boutique stores. But that's not the best part of the... More

I lived in Fredericksburg for about 4 years, over a decade ago, and always liked seeing the outside of the Richard Johnston Inn. In fact, it was the place I would have had my parents stay if they had been able to visit. So when I was planning a short visit to my old city, I knew exactly where I... More

We spent the night (with our dog) at one of the dog-friendly rooms at the inn. The location was perfect, right on historic Fredericksburg's Main Street-with a back courtyard facing a park by the Rappahannock River that was perfect for dog walking. Even better was the staff, led by Cheryl, all of whom fussed over us and especially our dog... More
