We spent several nights here while touring the historic sites in the area. The lovely, historic Inn was the perfect accompaniment to our trip. It has many little special touches that really make it homey but elegant. The breakfasts were delicious!

What an incredible room! Our jaws dropped when we entered the suite, and we stayed up late to ensure that we enjoyed the many amenities as thoroughly as possible. Each nook was well-considered and decorated charmingly. There were no other guests in the house that night, but it wouldn't have mattered - this suite has tremendous privacy. Super-accommodating staff members,... More

A beautiful Inn. We loved our room and the breakfast was absolutely delicious. The owner was not only charming but was a wealth of knowledge. We felt so at home in her beautiful Inn. If you are interested in carpets, make sure you spend time in the public rooms with her sensational collection...just perfect. Would have loved to stay longer.

The staff is friendly. It is a good location to walk around in downtown Fredericksburg. The rooms are pretty and clean. Great for Civil War historians. Unfortunately we didn't have the option for breakfast since we stayed on New Year's Eve.

The Inn is lovely. Very historic and in a wonderful town! Late check in was smooth; room was very nice. The bed was super comfortable. Breakfast was awesome! Be aware, there is no elevator. There are steps to get in to the Inn and then more steps to the rooms., but I knew this before I booked my room. Glad... More

We spent 5 nights for our Wedding at the 1890 Caroline House. The Caroline House is a separate property of the Richard Johnston Inn just one block down the street. We stayed in the William Riley Suite which is a 2 room suite on the main floor. Just an outstanding room with a very recent complete update and an additional... More

A very nice period home and small B+B. Beautiful public areas and a bountiful breakfast. We stayed in the loft, an excellent headquarters for exploring all things Fredericksburg. Ample off street parking. Friendly but limited personnel on site. Sherry in the rooms, public areas, cookies and snacks in the public areas. We will stay here again. You might want to... More

A former Frdericksburg resident, I often wondered what it would be like to stay at the inn. It is nestled so nicely in the downtown area, is an historic building--sounded like a grand idea to me! I was so excited when we booked, I posted on facebook and was thrilled to know that my post would earn us a bit... More

Room - We stayed in the Caroline House, which is owned by the RJ Inn and located a block down the street. The room and attached bath were very nice, but over decorated. Just too much stuff apparently just for the sake of being there. For example the bed and mattress were very nice, but it was covered with 10... More
