We wanted somewhere old and historical to stay in while in Fredericksburg to match our tour of the area. This inn is located in the old town with lots of shops and nearby restaurants. They have parking available behind the building. It's very cozy in the common areas in the house with beautiful furnishings to enjoy. We were in the... More

I could have spent the trip looking through all of the interesting antiques. The house is beautifully decorated. Breakfast was delicious. The room was spacious and comfortable. Very nice place to stay.

This Bed and Breakfast is beautiful, but we stayed in the Kitchen/Garden Room and it was hot--not good air-conditioning, but did have 3 fans in room for use. Breakfast was nice and staff was very helpful and kind. Located across from the tourist information center. Good location with most everything in walking distance.

We have been to the Richard Johnston Inn several times and it is always a pleasure to return. The Inn itself is warm and inviting and the staff always accommodating. Breakfast is prepared for you as you arrive in the dining room and that is a very special touch. The Inn is conveniently located on Caroline street, the main shopping... More

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

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
