1890 Caroline House B&B
Ranked #4 of 10 Fredericksburg B&B and Inns
Reviewed November 5, 2012

This B&B is ideal for a visit to Fredricksburg or the surrounding N. VA area. It's on a quiet street within easy walking distance to Fredricksburg shops & restaurants. The rooms are sunny & decorated with period antiques, lovely fireplaces, etc. You won't be disappointed!

Room Tip: My 2nd floor room was decorated in black & white with a large front bay window. Sunny & bri...

We recently stayed in the Luke Henry room on a Thursday and Friday night in late September. The home and rooms are lovely – the website photos don’t quite capture the beauty of the property.

As other reviewers have noted, the bed was extremely comfortable, the Jacuzzi tub was very relaxing and the room and bathroom décor was beautiful.

Breakfast was delicious – cooked main dishes, fresh fruit, pastries, juices, coffee – served in the elegant dining room. Much more than we were expecting.

Lindi is a warm, friendly and generous host, very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the history and activities in the area. She truly made our visit feel like a special celebration.

Our stay at the Caroline House was a wonderful last-stop on a weeklong swing through Virginia. We would highly recommend this B&B (felt like so much more) to everyone. We will be back!

Our experience at the 1890 Caroline House - Sawyer Scott Room was truly unforgettable. First, the staff was amazingly friendly and took the time to answer all our questions and give us the background of this wonderful house. The Sawyer Scott Room was beautiful, comfortable and great for a couples getaway. The bathroom was also something out of a fantasy. The interior design was beautiful and the attention to detail was obvious in every facet of the room and the inn.

We have been to lots of B&Bs and Inns and very few have the level of amenities, personal attention and decorating/design touches that we found at the 1890 Caroline House. We will definitely be coming back!!!

We enjoyed our stay immensely. We were allowed to check in early, were given a tour of the house and shown to our room. The room was beautiful; the bathroom luxurious. Breakfast was absolutely delicious. The service provided was top-notch at all times.

Only complaint- single-ply toilet tissue. Would have expected something as soft and plush as the provided robes.

There aren't enough superlatives to describe this beautiful house, with nothing but the best in decorations, very comfy bed, great Jacuzzi tub which was so relaxing, and the best of everything provided by the Leopolds in making this renovation into a truly beautiful B and B. On top of that, enough cannot be said for the overall service and great food prepared and served by Lindi - she deserves immense cudos. It is also located in the heart of old town Fredericksburg, with many Civil War attractions very close. All in all, you can't get a much better get-away at any price anywhere.

My wife and I just spent two nights at the 1890 Caroline House and stayed in the Sawyer Scott room. There are not enough superlatives to describe the house; it was beautiful in so many ways. Looks like what you would see in the movies. The bed was very comfortable and the food was delicious. Thank you to Lindi for the masterful job she did in every way to help make our stay so wonderful.
