Guest Reviews

My husband and I stayed here for a night and had a wonderful time. The room was beautiful, the amenities were perfect, and the bed was super comfortable. It is a little cold and can be creaky, but it's a 250-year-old building, so we expected it. To refute another reviewer, there was absolutely coffee in the dining room well before 9, as I was able to grab some around...See More

Great experience staying here. The staff are excellent and the location is convenient. The food was excellent and the history of the property was fascinating. I also experienced some paranormal events, which seemed to validate some of the previous ghostly encounters documented. The nearby battlegrounds and hiking trails were very informative and a rewarding experience.

Location, Location, Location!! We spent 1 night while passing through and experienced 2 days in Fredericksburg. The B&B was perfectly located. The B&B is conveniently located for everything. You get a true sense of history as soon as you enter. The staff was very helpful. The room exceeded our expectations. I would highly recommend a stay!!!

We enjoyed a lovely one-night stay in the Canopy Room at the Richard Johnston Inn. The room was spacious and comfortable, and the hall bath felt private enough. The house and the courtyard were beautiful, breakfast was good, and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The location on Fredericksburg's main street was great; we really enjoyed being able to walk to our dinner reservation at Orofino. Would stay...See More
