For one delightful weekend the Caroline House gave us the ideal setting for a romantic getaway. The reality of the William Riley Suite far exceeded the online description. The living room was ideal for relaxing after exploring historic Fredericksburg. The king-size bed was comfortable and the bedroom tastefully decorated, with plenty of storage. The two-room bath was designed with practicality... More

We stayed in the old Kitchen refurbished to a great room! The food was excellent & the Court yard a great place to relax,read or just converse! The room was cozy, yet we had plenty of space to stretch out in! We had Brandy in the room waiting for us!

Thank you so much for your review - we appreciate it! The Kitchen House is original to the 1770 property and one of our guests favorite rooms - for a couple of reasons. It being right off the courtyard/patio makes it so much easier to enjoy that area - open your door and walk out to our garden and fish... More

This was one of the best lodging experiences we have ever had. I will try to itemize categories for easier reading: 1. Location - I loved the location of this B&B. It was a few doors down from an adorable coffee shop. There is a small convenience store at the opposite end of the block which is great to grab... More

We really enjoyed our stay here. We didn’t really think we were B&B people but the Marriott was booked so we tried it. Reluctantly. Since the other two rooms were booked we got the Luke Henry room. It’s not the biggest or the best room in the place but it was really nice and the bed was super comfortable. Our... More

My wife and I spent our first anniversary at the 1890 Caroline House at the end of May, and were delighted by our second stay. The hospitality could not have been more genuine from Cheryl and Jessica. Breakfasts were tailored to address one of our gluten free diets. And the Sawyer Scott room, which looks out on Caroline Street, was... More

The Caroline House was lovely and the Sawyer Room was absolutely beautiful. We had a pleasant stay and the breakfast was delicious. However, we were disappointed with the level of service or lack of that we received. We called upon arrival as recommended, and Jessica (who was very kind) met us at the Caroline House to let us in. Unfortunately... More

This was our second stay at the 1890 Caroline House. We were in the Luke Henry room the first time but we were able to peak in the William Riley Suite and decided the next stay would be in that suite.

Stayed here two nights and loved it! I grew up in "the 'burg" and was thrilled to see how much attention has been paid to restoring and revitalizing the lovely downtown area.
