Our extended family has been visiting Fredericksburg for many years. We have an annual reunion there. We've stayed at a number of different guest houses over time, but this one has provided the best lodging experience so far. We stayed at Rock House Hideaway June 12th-15th, 2014. Our group this year had 8 adults and 5 children, so we rented the whole place including the guest house. Collectively, there are 5 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms. The owner also provided two, twin-sized portable beds which fit nicely in the living area of the guest house and made a great place for all the cousins to sleep together. They LOVED it. It was delightful to be able to stay all together under one roof, sharing two kitchens and living spaces as well as several porches and acres of beautiful grounds. Check in was super easy and everyone found a comfortable place to sleep, including parents with toddlers. We cooked in the kitchen, grilled out back, lounged and played on the porches, and picnicked under the trees. The kids caught fireflies at night and even saw a wild turkey from the back porch! I agree with another poster that the entrance road isn't the easiest to spot, especially at night, but they have added a sign by the road and the owner gave us a 'heads up' about how to find it. After the first time, finding it wasn't difficult, especially since you can look for the sign and the windmill near the road. We loved how old the farmhouse is, yet it has all the comforts and modern amenities of home including Wi-Fi, two flat-screened TV's, DVD players, cable, top-of-the-line appliances in the fully-stocked main kitchen, washers and dryers and comfortable beds. We were also delighted to see that the owner is nearly finished restoring the 1911 Pump House (I think it was) in the back for more guests. That's good news for our ever-growing family because we definitely want to go back. My one and only complaint would be that some of the locks in the guest house (including the bathroom doors) do not function. This was a slight problem for privacy, but we worked it out. Hopefully, they'll be fixed by next year.
