Sited on a commanding view above Fredericksburg, this is the perfect get-away for those with a discriminating appreciation for the finer things. We overnighted in Ellie's Suite, a well-appointed, spacious, yet warm refuge. The plush king bed had the most comfortable sheets we recalled ever sleeping in. Fragrant bath salts, artisan soaps, and a jetted tub as well as separate shower were among the luxuries that couples celebrating a special occasion will enjoy. We also ordered "You're the Thoughtful One" special add-on and savored an excellent Bogle Phantom blended red wine with a spectacularly arranged and scrumptious cheese, fruit, and nut plate that we slowly savored before heading out for dinner. Breakfast was also an event to remember--a flavorful vegetable quiche with turkey sausage patties, fresh fruit, and lemon poppyseed scones that were so very tender we could not enjoy just one!
The house is a treasure trove of tastefully arranged antiques and museum-quality family heirlooms originating from Germany, Alaska, and the upper midwest of the U.S., beautifully displayed alongside articles from Jenny's extensive international travels. Ask about any and all of them; there's a rich story behind everything in the house.
The large property lot is gorgeous at any time of day, but particularly dramatic in the late afternoon and early evening as the city lights come on. Strongly recommend arriving at the earliest check-in time to take in the grounds and the scenery in a stroll around the property and tour the house as you slowly, gently unwind. You'll want every minute you can spend here if you staying for only a single night. If you are spending more nights than that, Lavender Heights is perfectly situated to quickly and easily get to all the historic sights and restaurants/shopping in old town Fredericksburg.
Jenny does everything possible to make your stay a thoroughly relaxing one and her hospitality is absolutely first-class. Lavender Heights is among the best top-tier Bed and Breakfast experiences offered anywhere. An absolute must whether you stay one night or several!
