Our daughter is a Freshman at Mary Baldwin College and we have now stayed at the Frederick House twice. Both of our rooms have been lovely - nicely decorated, very clean and roomy. The beds are comfortable with great pillows. Comfy robes and a nice hair dryer are also provided. The Frederick House is right across the street from campus, so it's very easy to coordinate with our daughter. This last time we had a suite, which was wonderful and very homey. it allowed us to have a much more intimate visit with her than if we had been in a regular hotel room farther from campus. The breakfast is fantastic - many delicious home-made choices! The owners, Joe and Evy, are wonderful and can help you with anything you need from directions to restaurant choices.
The Frederick House is right in the historic downtown district of Staunton and there are many great shops and restaurants within walking distance. The American Shakespeare Theatre is also within walking distance and you can get show tickets along with your room - very convenient.
Staunton is very hilly and the Frederick house has four separate buildings. You may need to carry your luggage up stairs to get to your room, but it's a small price to pay for the quaint charm and ambiance of the Frederick House.
