My wife, Terri, and I wanted to explore Fredricksberg and in particular, heard about all the great B&B's. We went on-line and found "The Back Porch". The pictures of this unit are great, but don't do it justice. When you first arrive, you quickly notice how nice an quite the neighborhood is. The Back Porch is close to the charming... More

We loved that we could walk literally 2 blocks to town. The hot tub was wonderful and even though outside in the side/front, still private.

We did enjoy our stay at the Front Porch but there were a few things that could be improved. It was relatively clean but the front room furniture could use a cleaning or be replaced. The front door had a large space between the door and threshhold that bothered me as I don't like creepy, crawly things like snakes. It... More

My husband and I absolutely loved the back porch! The private porch area was so nice. We loved the layout of the bed and breakfast. We had such a great stay and certainly hope to return soon!

This was a unique B&B experience. We had to check in at a different location. This is where we paid the balance and were given the room key. Oddly, we also have to return here to return the key?! It was just like checking into a hotel. I would have rather met with the owner who would have been more... More

We stayed at the Front Porch for our 23rd Wedding Anniversary. We looked at many different B & B's searching for the "perfect" one for us. What a great choice we made with the Front Porch! From the comfortable king size bed to the charming decor, everything was perfect! We especially loved the bathroom with the ambiance fireplace and whirlpool... More

My wife and I chose to spend our five year anniversary somewhere relaxing, peaceful, and away from the fast pace of the bigger cities as we had in recent anniversaries, and Fredericksburg offered the perfect setting (however, there is much to do in Fredericksburg that is very enjoyable!) We chose the Front Porch Bed and Breakfast because it looked cosy... More

My husband and I stayed in March and it was so nice! We are looking for good B&Bs. It's within walking distance of all the shops/restaurants on Main St. and the room was very cozy! The only thing is that the walls were very thin, so we could hear all the noises (coughing, TV, etc) from the guests in the... More

Reservation on-line was a breeze. Residence was ready when we arrived for the two-night stay. It was super clean and just as advertised. The large spa/tub was delightful. Downtown is in walking distance. Innkeepers were very nice and courteous. Couldn't have been better. We intend to go again next year.
