Room was decorated beautifully. Amazing huge Jacuzzi tub. Bed very comfortable with mattress topper. Plenty of room in suite for wedding party preparation. Breakfast was absolutely delicious. Inn allowed us to take photos on location pre-wedding. Night workers very helpful, but not clear explainations about how to get things needed after hours. (bucket of ice, etc) Arrived back late Saturday night. Temperature had dropped a few degrees so the heat was on. I love old homes with radiators because they pump out the heat but it was October not January & way too hot in our room. We turned both AC units on in suite but it was so uncomfortable, neither of us slept well on our wedding night. I slept like a baby the night before & am certain that the heat was the only issue there. In morning we walked downstairs for breakfast & there was no place to sit. There was an unoccupied table but it had dirty dishes on it. We walked around looking for someone who worked there, both went to the restroom, & someone finally walked up saying, "I'll be right with you", then she went to a table who had just been seated and took their order. I know she needed to get to the table which was there first, but they did have chairs and beverages so they could've waited for a moment while she cleared our table enough for us to simply sit down & look over the menu. She finally cleared our table, we sat down. I asked for the same breakfast I had the day before & commented that it wasn't a very large portion & asked if I could have 4 slices of toast instead of 3. She replied that they could not (or would not) alter the menu in any way. After dropping $500 for a suite what's one piece of bread? We enjoyed our stay at The Kenmore Inn. It’s gorgeous & very comfortable. They need to have a few instructions listed at check in or in the rooms for if you need something at night. They should try to keep the temperature more moderated, and should be more hospitable re: the “included” breakfast.

Superb "Old Dominion" Hospitality

The total experience was outstanding. The classy, but comfortable ambiance of yesteryear is exactly what my wife and I look for when away from home. Everyone we encountered on staff did his or her utmost to provide exceptional service - Brandon and Anna in particular.

1st stay

Our first visit to Kenmore Inn was mid-September for two nights. Room was very comfortable and well-appointed. All staff were accommodating, friendly, and helpful. Only negative was no tissues in room. It may have been missed and we did not ask Had dinner the first night at the Inn's restaurant. Food and service were exceptional. Appears to draw locals as well as guests. Would highly recommend and expect to return again.

I loved staying here, and plan on staying again. It was perfect for a single night business trip, and the photos show only a fraction of the period-appropriate decor and home design. The owners were accommodating and super nice. Many thanks.

Excellent Getaway

My fiance and I were greatly impressed by the service, courtesy and professionalism of the staff and the home itself. We've already expressed this site to another couple. We would come back again and again.

Everything was awesome. The staff are now my new friends and I miss them so much. The room, food, location and everything else was just wonderful. Since we got home, I been telling everyone if they ever go to Fredericksburg, VA they must stay at the Kenmore Inn. Love you guys, can't wait to go back to visit with you.

Our stay was fine except for the bird that flew into our room through the chimney at 7:30 AM. Not too pleased about that.
