Lovely day in Fredericksburg

The service and hospitality were wonderful. We stayed on a Thursday but Friday breakfast was served. Made the stay even better. I wish the owners much success. Thanks

Could not have stayed at a better B&B!

The hosts were attentive and very informative. You can really tell the they enjoy living in Fredericksburg since they are knowledgeable about the local attractions and tourism scene. The rooms were roomy and clean. The food was amazing! Will stay again.

Great Weekend Getaway

This was our second stay at A Place In Time and it was just as memorable as the first. John warmly greeted us at check-in and provided us with useful info as to the goings on in Fredericksburg and points nearby that weekend. The room we stayed in was the Garden View and is actually detached from the main house so it was very quiet but was large and well appointed. The breakfast both days was delicious with several local products served. Had a great time and will definitely consider returning.

Wonderful B&B stay

My friend and I stayed 3 nights in the Ruby Bell Suite for a spring break writing retreat (dissertation and grant proposal). We had a wonderful time! The suite was lovely. We each had our own sleeping space, so I could work late without disturbing my roommate. The little table had plenty of room for us both to work, and everything was so pretty it put us in the right frame of mind. Innkeeper Jon was wonderful--he gave us lots of good advice about where to eat and park in Fredericksburg, and he even cooked a hot breakfast for us on one of the weekdays. We can't wait to come back!!!

Charming 100+ year old home with updates to feel comfortable.

Great anniversary getaway

Breakfast was so tasty and that was the one thing we were very picky about in choosing a B&B. We had a wonderful stay and the service was great. We were disappointed that we could t use the sunroom due to a wasp problem, but those things happen and definitely did not ruin our stay. Our room was very clean and the sheets were heavenly! We had a great time.

Innkeeper Response
How embarrassing to have those critters join us on your weekend. Monday first thing we had the problem taken care of. Better safe than sorry however. So glad you enjoyed your stay. Next time (and since your visit) the sun room will be safe.

Fabulous weekend!

My daughter and I enjoyed a wonderful girls' retreat here. Jon and Mary Kaye are terrific hosts and were great resources for anything we were interested in. And the food was unbelievable!

Charming B&B

5 on September 17, 2015

The early 20th century home is gorgeous - and the antique decor and old photos in the room were charming as well. Jon and Mary Kaye are exceptional hosts - almost like going home to visit family. Very warm, inviting, informative about the area, and BREAKFAST - out of this world. A Place in Time had availabilities when I needed it on extremely short notice, and at fantastic price.

greatstay & have passed it long to friends

Great place to stay and really enjoyed it and have passed it along to friends

Lovely home; Great hosts

Jon and Mary Kaye were great to talk with and wonderful hosts! And boy was the breakfast to die for! Their home is just lovely, and our room was comfortable. The location is not far from the main drag, which was great in avoiding excessive noise. A Place in Time is surely the place to be when visiting Fredericksburg.
