After months of searching for the perfect location to host my best girlfriend's baby shower, I decided on the Richard Johnston Inn. I'm glad I did because the service has been fantastic. The inn keeper, Bonnie, has been so very flexible in accomodating my schedule to travel from Northern Virginia to Fredericksburg for planning. When I met with her, she... More

The Wedding of Colin MacKinnon and Ashley Morton was held in the court yard of the Richard Johnson Inn on June 20, 2009. Bonnie, the Innkeeper was not at all accomodating nor did she keep her word on what the Inn would do during the event. Every meeting/ phone call was not handled proffessionally, she shrugged us off to the... More

This wedding was managed by my assistant, a friend of the brides, who SHE called and kept in constant contact with. MY ASSISTANT ASKED TO HANDLE THIS EVENT BECAUSE OF THEIR FRIENDSHIP. The day of the wedding, it poured rain at noon and we were out there with mops etc to clean up the courtyard and the dancefloor because the... More

I had a wonderful time at this B and B. My room was spacious and comfortable. The bed was quite comfortable and offered a sound night's sleep. Breakfasts were quite enjoyable. The inn is centrally located to the historic district, which is quite lovely, and to a number of excellent restaurants, yet offers quiet rooms. The manager, Bonnie, was quite... More

The Richard Johnston Inn inhabits a 1700s building in the historic center of Fredericksburg. The Inn is delightfully appointed and decorated, and our room was spacious, comfortable, and well supplied with luxuries, large and small. We had breakfast in a charming dining room, with all the pleasures of lemon cake and fruit! The innkeeper, Bonnie, welcomed us warmly, and had... More

We stayed with our family for our son's wedding in Fredericksburg the weekend of May 15th, 2009 and we couldn't have picked a better place. The rooms are decorated perfectly, the breakfasts are gourmet, and the location right in the middle of downtown was convenient for shopping, restaurants, etc. This is the nicest inn we've ever stayed in.

We spent one night at the inn on a recent trip to explore housing possibilities in the Fredericksburg area. The staff was very helpful and courteous and offered helpful suggestions regarding restaurants as the weekend of our visit was also graduation weekend at the U of MW and reservations at the better restaurants were a bit hard to come by....

My oldest daughter was graduating from Mary Washington University. The oldest of 7 grandchildren, so the orders from my older sister was "make it nice!" Most of the other members of the family are from Maine, so I wanted something charming in the Virginia fashion and to create a trip everyone would pleasantly remember. I found the Richard Johnston online... More

We simply turned up on the doorstep of this Inn based on the recommendation of the Fredericksburg Visitor Information Centre - and were so blessed to find this little gem of a B&B. We were greeted warmly by the host (& two dogs, Sam & Scooter), shown the facilities and our lovely 4-poster room. The Inn was clean, cosy, beautifully... More
