This does has a great location for exploring the town, just a stroll to art galleries and restaurants and the trolley tour. We booked a $200 room "en suite" called "top of the inn." We found out there it meant lugging luggage 48 steps up from the parking lot level. Not fun but doable. Then at end of a balmy... More

We were hoping for something special after a miserable two-hour crawl down the I95 from Washington to Fredericksburg and we got it. The Richard Johnston Inn is as good a b&b (if you can call it that) as we have stayed in. We booked The Loft and it was like being in a home within a home. It had two... More

We are quite fortunate to have friends that love us so much, because this was a gift from them. We had a wonderful time! The room was beautiful, breakfast was delicious and the staff was more than accommodating. We look forward to making another trip to Fredericksburg and stay at The Richard Johnston Inn.

Breakfast was amazing! She really catered to people (even demanding guests!) But, if you are a light sleeper or someone that wants to go to bed earlier ask for a room in the back. The hotel is next to a bar and people were standing outside talking loudly until 3 am!

This was our second stay at the Richard Johnston Inn for Family Weekend at UMW. Last year we stayed in the Kitchen House and this year we were in the Isabella Suite. Both of these rooms are off the courtyard in the back of the inn. We love everything about this property - perfect location in Old Town Fredericksburg, nicely... More

Overnight trip to Fredericksburg, VA for my birthday. Did a goggle search for B&Bs and choose the Richard Johnston Inn and could not have been more pleased. The staff was very professional but also with lots of personality. Even an ice bucket with a bottle of wine waiting for me as a birthday gift!! Choose the Isabella Suite and it... More

What a charming inn. We stayed in the old kitchen and the room was clean and comfortable. The Innkeeper and staff were very nice and whipped up the most amazing breakfast. Keep an eye out for signs of Toby and creaky floors. Since this property is across from the Rappahannock River, the Inn's history is entrenched in Civil War stories.... More

My husband and I stayed in The Loft room for our first wedding anniversary for two nights. It was marvelous. The house and gardens are beautifully decorated and the staff welcoming. The Loft was incredible. The first floor is the bathroom and living room. Up the spiral staircase is the king bed and little sitting area. So fabulous. And don't... More

We had stayed at the inn once before so knew to use advanced reservations. We had booked the Kitchen House room, just off the courtyard. There had been a temporary issue with the air conditioning in that room but it really wasn't too bad. We were given a choice of other rooms at the same price or less to move... More

This is a beautiful historic house, in a perfect location with excellent off street parking. The breakfast was absolutely superb.Fredericksburg has antique shops and good restaurants. We liked Le Petit Auberge. Highly recommended
