The Inn is lovely, historic, and well-preserved with friendly staff. My only quibble is traffic noise made it difficult to sleep. The breakfast was ample, with delicious scones! Easy to find in the Historic District.

Minimum expectations of any hotel would be that one can have a shower, not so at this hotel. The basin was working but no water out of the shower head and only cold water out of the bathtub. I would have also have liked sheets that where somewhat smooth to know that I am the first one to use them.... More

Stayed 1 night, and attended a wedding. The room where the wedding was held was very nice and unique, very rustic, and a great place for a wedding. The staff was great. The rooms were small, and old, but that is what you are getting in an old bed and breakfast. The rooms were clean, parking was not an issue,... More

Centrally located in historic Fredericksburg Virginia. It's old and quaint. Decorated in victorian style. Floors creak, doors open with real keys, rooms and bathrooms were clean. Beds really comfortable. Had a great night sleep. Staff was very friendly and helpful in suggesting places to eat and sights to see. Breakfast room had a long table with chairs to sit, cereal...

My family stayed here with a large group for a wedding that was held on site. We had a parlor suite which was great for us, because my 19 month old was able to sleep in another room without being disrupted by visitors. If you are travelling with young ones, bring a Pack and Play. There are no portable cribs... More

Very quaint place to stay. Lovely wedding venue! We stayed in one of the smaller rooms...reminded us of room scale sizes in the UK. It was cozy, very clean and comfortable. You are within walking distance of many places in Historic Fredericksburg...but wear comfortable shoes. Some rooms don't have their own thermostat control but the front desk is very accommodating...

Everything was as anticipated. Absolutely fabulous wedding venue. Affordable. Rooms are a little small as expected from this quaint historic inn but bed slept like a dream. We received an email asking us to identify items we might need such as irons and ironing board, etc. Be sure to respond of necessities are needed. Continental breakfast was as expected. Great...

We attended a wedding reception here and found the facility very nice. The employees were helpful and food good. Although the weather forced the ceremony to be located from outside to inside it was handled with such ease that no one would have noticed.
