my wife and I try to visit Fredericksburg, annually, and we always try to stay at the Old Silk Mill. We enjoy it every time.
A Very Welcoming Place to Stay
on September 02, 2014
The Inn At the Olde Silk Mill is a very welcoming place to stay. The common areas are very nicely decorated and there a several different common areas to gather with other travelers in your party. The day person at the front desk was much more informative and welcoming than the evening staff person. The continental breakfast is adequate eating and running and situated in a nice common dining room...we chose not to eat the breakfast as we were looking for a nice brunch dining experience which we found in town.
Although our room was nicely decourated there was an odd smell to it (sort of like a rancid oil smell that we also noticed at the restaurant down the street which makes us wonder if there is not something located in that part of town that has a smell that permeates that area) ...when I requested a different room even though there were plenty of empty rooms the evening person did not seem equipped to make it happen.
very pleasant stay

The only problem we encountered is waiting for the hot water. We realize this is an old inn and the pipes are very old. Other than that, the stay was very pleasent and the town is very interesting and historical. We will definetily consider staying there again.

OK place to stay

A charming B&B it isn't, but it's an OK place to stay. Be aware that bedandbreakfast.com charges a hefty commission vs what the B&B charges.
There is a commission rate paid to BedandBreakfast.com when a reservation is made through their website. I did over hear from the front desk staff that this guest was a little disgrunted about the rate he paid was slightly higher then what he found on our website. I do wish I would of had the opportunity to discuss this matter and perhaps offer a discount. The bed and breakfast website is a very convenient, relialbe site. However, if the guest is not satisfied with the agreed upon rate at reservation time or check in, then would be a good time to dispute. I understand that feeling like you have been overcharged does not set you up for a positive visit. You are welcome to return and inquire about our AAA, Military, repeat customer and other discounts.
Great time at the Inn
on November 21, 2011
The pictures make all the rooms look a big bigger than they really are. I wasn't dissatsified but just expected a bigger room. It was a nice, clean, and comfortable room that we love. Everyone was very nice and accomodating (sp?). We had a great time and will definintely being going back.

My husband and I recently stayed at the inn and were delighted with our experience. This was our first time at a 'bed and breakfast' type of lodging and we weren't sure quite what to expect. Anna was a lovely hostess and very knowledgeable about the area. Nancy, the housekeeper, was a sweetheart. Our room, although not the one I originally chose, was like "sleeping in grandma's bedroom,'( the room with the bed in front of the three windows) turned out to be a great choice for us. We both agreed that we had three of the best nights of sleep we had had in a long time. If I were to change anything, it would probably just be to offer home baked goodies instead of tinned cookies, but that is a very minor point. We plan on visiting the Inn again when we're in the area and would certainly recommend it to others.
When Warmth Meets Charm...
on May 09, 2011
The second we arrived at The Inn At The Olde Silk Mill, we were graciously greeted by the Innkeeper's beaming smile and warmth. She was extremely hospitable, welcoming and helpful in suggesting all of the must-do's in Fredericksburg. (We would in turn even run into her later on that evening at one of the local pubs!) We stayed in the charming King George Suite, which was tastefully decorated in beautiful rich tones and exuded a definite sense of regalness and class. The suite was exceptionally clean and the bed was by far one of the most comfortable and "heavenly" sleep experiences that I have ever enjoyed. My only area of noting was the continental breakfast, which featured your standard fruits, bagels, cereals, danishes and beverages - all consumed off of styrofoam kitchenware. So, while the breakfast was nothing to write home about, overall, we had a very lovely and relaxing stay at The Inn!

The Inn was beautiful as we expected and the staff was extremely knowledgeable about it's history as well as the area.
