My husband and I stayed at this property over the Christmas holiday. The rooms and adjoining bathrooms (or at least ours) were on the small side, but nothing that we hadn't expected in a house this old. Housekeeping was a bit hit-or-miss but the staff was polite and responsive. We would definitely stay there again.
My wife and I stayed with Kathleen over New Year's Eve. The B&B had a lot of character. The room was very nice and spotless. Breakfast was original and luxurious and different every morning. We thoroughly enjoyed the family style atmosphere and great conversations with other guests. Before our stay we got perfect assistance to arrange New Year's Eve activities in the area. We also enjoyed the winery arrangement, In short a perfect and relaxing stay. Exactly what we were looking for and more...
This was a one night reservation for our daughter and son in law, to celebrate their wedding day. They both enjoyed the hotel very much, and raved about the morning breakfast. The couple explained that the room was well above expectations and the staff was friendly and professional. After hearing their remarks, my husband and I will be booking a a night or two for "date night getaway" in the near future
This location has made our anniversary very special for the third year in a row. The staff is so helpful and welcoming, and the other guests have been interesting and enjoyable to meet. I highly recommend it for any occasion.
We came to the Inn just for an overnight (child free night!). We checked in & then went downstairs for dinner. The food was great as always & our server knew we were out with no kids & brought us a glass of champagne! That was very nice & added to the experience. The room was very nice & we had a great night’s sleep on the super comfy bed! We both agree that we will definitely be back!
On our way to Richmond, my husband and I spent a night at the Richard Johnson Inn. Well appointed colonial rooms, with attention to detail. Staff was gracious and accommodating. Highly recommend.
My husband and I have stayed numerous times and never had a unsatisfied visit. We love to walk downtown and eat at the many restaurants around the bed and breakfast. The staff are very friendly and take care of your every need. We admire the historical structure and often think of the people who lived there when it was built. We definitely will stay there again!
We spent our wedding night at the Kenmore Inn. The after-hours check-in was super easy and the room was lovely. The roses I had delivered were in the room when we arrived. Breakfast was very tasty and the staff was attentive and friendly. Highly recommend. Oh, and the grounds were beautiful.
We were so impressed with this Inn located in the heart of Fredericksburg! Great restaurants and historic sites are within walking distance and at the end of the day, we were able to relax in our beautiful room. We met wonderful people while enjoying a delicious breakfast. I would definitely stay here again!
My husband treated me to an overnight stay for my birthday! Love the Kenmore Inn--we were married there 20 years ago. Susan, the innkeeper, was an absolute delight. Room was quaint and bed was super comfy. Breakfast was delicious!
As always, we had a most enjoyable stay at the Richard Johnston Inn. The rooms, the service and the breakfast were exceptional and that is our first choice for a room while in Fredericksburg. Cheryl is a wonderful Innkeeper and we are looking forward to our next visit in October.
We really enjoyed the location in Old Town Fredericksburg and its proximity to many sites. Our room was very nice and clean and looked out on Caroline Street. Felt like we stepped back in time. We felt fortunate to find a room during a holiday weekend. Staff was very nice and friendly. But the variety for Breakfast was less than expected. My wife is a vegetarian and didn't have much of a selection even though we had notified them ahead of time. All in all a nice place and we plan to stay there again in the near future. Highly recommend.
This review is a pleasure to write. The Richard Johnston Inn has virtually everything a Fredericksburg visitor could ask for: LOCATION: The inn is in the heart of Fredericksburg's historical district. The building itself was a "witness" to the Battle of Fredericksburg, and has battle scars to prove it. Excellent restaurants are within a 5 minute walk of the property, along with a host of shops, museums and historical homes. The inn has ample off-street parking, a major advantage in the compact confines of 19th century buildings. THE STAFF: Uniformly courteous, eager to assist and willing to go well beyond expectations to ensure guest satisfaction. THE ACCOMMODATIONS: The inn was converted from an historical home, tracing its roots to the late 18th century. Considering the challenges of maintaining a B&B in a very old building, the accommodations are excellent. My room, the Isabella Suite, was beautifully furnished. The bath was fully modernized and immaculate. Access to some other rooms may require walking up a flight or two of stairs. THE BREAKFAST: Excellent. Large portions and innovative dishes one doesn't usually have at home. SUMMARY: I heartily recommend the Richard Johnston Inn. In fact, my group plans to follow my own recommendation and return next year.
I recently had yet another stay at the Kenmore Inn and once again it was a wonderful experience. Rooms are comfortable, staff friendly and helpful; breakfast was great. We also had dinner there and can highly recommend their filet -- it was perfectly cooked and delicious. We also enjoyed sitting on the front porch after dinner. Perfect getaway!
We found the Inn to be delightful in all respects. Cheryl was extremely efficient and easy going. The location was super - we really wanted to do more, but it was extremely hot (96). My ONLY complaint was that we found the room to be a little "warm" for our liking, but that's just us...the bedspread and blanket were both heavy so we basically only used the sheet. The bed itself was very nice. Had there been a ceiling fan, we would have been more comfortable, but like I said, we like it cool when we sleep. Other than that very small detail, we look forward to coming back in the Fall. Thanks Doris & Jim Mohs
A wonderful B+B to stay in Fredricksburg. Great room and also a wonderful breakfast. We had eaten in the Inn's restaurant for dinner and enjoyed it immensely for the food and the patio with the fountain for an ambience. I recommend this highly.
Braehead Manor is an historical treasure. Strategically situated along Lee Drive this B&B delivers relaxation, and southern hospitality. Mary sets the stage with a warm welcome and it only gets better. Highly recommended!!! Rick N
The Kenmore Inn is a wonderful place to stay while enjoying the sights of Fredericksburg. Room, service, breakfast, and common facilities were excellent. Our rating of the on-site dining is based solely on the breakfast. We didn't use the evening restaurant, but it looked really good and came (one night) with live jazz. The only thing that begged improvement was the bathroom in our room which worked fine but looked tired and offered little space for one's legs when seated. But that is really a minor complaint which didn't affect our full enjoyment of the inn.
This was our first trip to Fredericksburg and it was on the spur of the moment for our wedding anniversary. We found the Kenmore Inn thru a search, it looked nice and we decided to give it a try. We were glad that we did, the staff were very nice and the breakfast very good. The rooms were well appointed and with enough room that you did not feel claustrophobic as you might in some hotel rooms. There is a bar with restaurant in the basement and they serve some very unique drinks and had a wonderful menu. The location allowed us to walk to the Historic District easily and we took full advantage of that closeness. A very nice stay!
Prior to our arrival we were asked if we had allergies. We arrived and were immediately greeted by Mary, the innkeeper. She gave us a tour of the home and the history. She asked what time we would like breakfast the next morning. The breakfast the next morning was amazing! The coffee was from a local roaster and Mary advised she buys everything fresh and tries to buy local. She made a stuffed apple pecan French toast. It was divine. Fresh fruit, and coffee cake. It was such a beautiful and relaxing stay.
