Fodor's Review

This elegant B&B was constructed in 1793 and served as the home of Richard Johnston, mayor of Fredericksburg from March 1809 to March 1810. Guest rooms are decorated with period antiques and reproductions, and have working fireplaces, along with high-speed wireless and the purely Southern amenity of complimentary cream sherry. The aroma of freshly baked breads and muffins entices you to breakfast in the large Federal-style dining room, where the table is set with fine china, silver, and linens. The inn is just across from the visitor center and two blocks from the train station. Ample private parking is behind the inn.
