Great Getaway

5 on August 25, 2014

Owner Jenny could not have been more gracious from reservation to goodbye. Great location a little way from downtown. Lovely room. Great breakfast. Easy parking. Easy access for this limited guest.

My husband and I booked the last available room for a family wedding that was held on site at the B & B. The accommodations, food, graciousness of the host Jenny and her staff, and the overall ambiance could not have been better. What a relaxing stay in a perfectly desirable location - close to downtown Fredericksburg and just around the block from my sister's. We will definitely recommend this spot to others and plan to book again, hopefully in the not too distant future. Ann & Mike

Highly recommend Lavender Heights

My fiance and I got married at Lavender Heights B&B in July 2013, to include both of us and our wedding party staying for two nights before the event. All of us have been talking about the experience ever since and will be going back in the very near future! The owner provided wonderful service to us and our guests and her hospitality exceeded all of our expectations. She went above and beyond during our stay and we all felt like we were amongst family our entire stay. Would HIGHLY recommend this B&B to anyone looking for a get-away.

Perfect getaway!

My daughter and I stayed at Lavender Heights for a quick getaway, after experiencing a significant loss in our lives. We were welcomed so warmly, and felt so comfortable immediately. The inn is lovely, with such attention to detail. The rooms are so cozy and comfy, and the entire house is just beautiful. Everything is designed with rest and relaxation in mind. Though there were other guests staying in the room next door, we never even heard them. Historic Fredericksburg is literally minutes away, and we had a delicious meal at one of the many fab restaurants. Then the next morning, we were treated to an absolutely delicious breakfast before returning home. We will definitely visit again, bringing the rest of our family with us!

Birthday Celebration!

My boyfriend and I stayed at Lavender Heights to celebrate our birthdays and it was definitely an experience that we will never forget! The Inn is amazing and the attention to detail is incredible! We left with a life long friend and will definitely be back soon! Do yourself a favor and treat yourself or someone else to a wonderful stay at this exquisite Bed and Breakfast!

Wonderful Experience

Lavender Heights Bed and Breakfast is in a beautiful area with lots of history. The gardens are beautiful and plentiful with seating that allows a breathtaking view over the historic city of Fredericksburg. The rooms are spacious and decorated with comfort and charm in mind. I was greeted with such hospitality and a lovely tour. After a comfortable night's sleep, I was offered an exquisite breakfast. I highly recommend this Bed and Breakfast.
