The Richard Johnston is ideally situated in the downtown historic district of Fredericksburg, walking distance to most local sites and restaurants. The staff at the Richard Johnston is friendly and knowledgeable, offering information and suggestions on what to see and where to eat, as well as what they know about the area's history. Clean, comfortable rooms (including a bed that... 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

We spent the evening while celebrating our 42nd anniversary. The front desk greeting and the interim Inn-Keeper made us feel quite special. The location was perfect for getting a good feel of Fredericksburg. Would do it again.

I arrived late, after the front desk staff had gone, and a wine dinner was taking place, so I ended up feeling a bit like an interloper. Charming building, nice location for walking downtown for shopping and dining out. Lovely staff at breakfast. I'd stay there again, but wouldn't go out of my way to do so.

We stopped in Fredericksburg during our road trip around Virginia. We were undecided if we would spend the night here until we happened upon this lovely B&B, right on the main street of Fredericksburg.. First we had a tour, conducted by the Innkeeper. A very personable lady with a great sense of humor. Luckily ,when we returned several hours later,... More

We've stayed at the Richard Johnston Inn two times. Both have been wonderful experiences. It's in the center of old town Fredericksburg. Walking distance to just about everything. Their breakfast is amazing and the staff is so friendly and helpful. I highly recommend it.

We enjoyed our stay 100% and have recommended the Inn to friends upon our return home. The location makes a vehicle an option for the weekend. We walked to restaurants, shops and parks. It was the perfect setting to spend time together. We have been to many B and Bs...you will not be disappointed at the Richard Johnston Inn.

Came in for a long weekend get away. Easy to locate with ample parking which is not always the case at B and B 's. Easy check in and friendly service. Very nice property in the heart of the historic district. Made it very convenient for the walking tour of Fredericksburg which had more of a colonial period emphasis. Only... More
