Great anniversary stay

3.4 on August 15, 2016

I wanted a special weekend to celebrate our 12th Anniversary. Our stay was wonderful and Lynn and Kevin were a delight. Lynn gave us a tour of the main home even opened up one of the guest houses to show us her decorating.


The best bed and breakfast.

Lynn and Kevin really know how to run this place. They take pride in their place, including the landscaping and of cours4 the amazing breakfast.


Could not have had a better experience!

5 on June 30, 2016

Lynn was the kindest host we could have asked for. She made fresh cookies the first 2 days, and her home cooked breakfasts every morning were mind blowing! She also helped us find some great wineries and restaurants to visit. The room itself was very spacey, and we never felt like we were simply staying in another person's home. There was a very large bedroom, with a small kitchenette as well, not to mention a small sitting area equipped with a TV and cable. The grounds themselves were very pretty as Lynn & Kevin have a lot of gardens and backyard space. We were able to sit outside at night after it cooled off and drink some wine in the peace & quiet. Lynn has some other options for residence, but you cannot beat the value of the Garden Suite, especially since most places don't even offer a home cooked breakfast anymore.


Very relaxing stay at Das Garten Haus!

This was our first stay at a B&B. The house and property offered a very relaxed setting. From arrival to departure, we enjoyed our entire stay and were very comfortable at Das Garten Haus. The breakfasts were amazing and hospitality provided by Kevin was very nice. We look forward to our next visit to Fredericksburg and plan to stay at Das Garten Haus again.


What an Experience!

Absolutely loved this B&B. It was clean, cozy, comfortable, and private. Everything the wife and I want from a B&B. We stayed in the courtyard cottage, which is across the courtyard from the main house. It was quaint and wonderful. The breakfasts were equally as wonderful. Lynn (owner/host) has it down to an art form. It was like stepping back in time Downton Abbey style. Different china each morning (we stayed 3 nights) to match the different gourmet meals she prepared. Hopefully you can stay long enough to experience the baked pairs & praline french toast -- wow!. The breakfasts alone make this B&B #1 in our book. The owners seem to have thought of everything and made sure we had the best possible stay. If you're visiting Fredricksburg, you should stay at Das Garten Haus ... period.

We cannot speak highly enough about our stay at Das Garten. The lodging was terrific and Lynn could not have been a better host. We got several great recommendations from her during our two days and her cooking was delicious.
