Stevenson Ridge

6901 Meeting Street , Spotsylvania, VA 22553 USA (Show map)


Take yourself back in time with a retreat in one of our restored 18th and 19th century private cottages. Each cottage boasts period furnishings, wood-burning fireplaces and a unique history. The grounds host some of the most "well-preserved Civil War trenches in private hands". Bring a good book and bottle of wine to enjoy from the comfort of your porch or picnic alongside our onsite fishing pond. The optional continental-style breakfast is an additional $15 per guest and is delivered to your cabin in the morning. Conveniently located within a few miles of all local battlefields, downtown Fredericksburg and Lake Anna as well as approximately a one-hour drive to DC, Richmond and Charlottesville.

Wedding Venue

4.6 on September 17, 2015

We held our wedding ceremony and reception at Stevenson Ridge. The venue was fantastic, the entire staff took care of our every need and made it a fabulous day for us. Although quite pricey, it was worth every penny!

We stayed in The Spy Hill House. It was superb with the most comfortable bed ever and a lovely bathroom. The breakfast delivered daily was very good (though quite expensive). We had a tour of the local battlefield arranged by the owner. PD from England

Great getaway

We spent Memorial Day weekend in the Post Office. I love the way most of the cabins are separated, so you feel alone in the woods. We watched a wedding from our porch and enjoyed a quiet weekend in our own spot. With a microwave and refrigerator, we could be completely self contained and enjoy life at our own pace.

Stevenson Ridge exceeded my expectations all around

We stayed at Stevenson Ridge for our 10th year anniversary. We chose the Post Office to stay in which was really cozy and warm. The soaking tub and fireplace were really nice if you are looking for a romantic evening. Jennifer was very nice, helped immensely, and her recommendations were perfect. We will definitely visit again. Thank you Jennifer.

What a fabulous place! Very unique accommodations. I keep coming back! Good access to dining off the premises.

Beautiful but cold

3.8 on January 20, 2015

Overall loved it. The furnishings, decor, etc. are absolutely lovely. Clean. Excellent modern kitchen and bathroom. A really beautiful place. However, we have stayed twice now and had the same experience with it being cold, the fireplace smoking when lit/smoke alarms going off, and an inability to close the flue in the bedroom fireplace (we didn't want to use the fireplace and cold air was pouring in).

New Home for my Birthday Retreat

4.6 on January 16, 2015

OMG! I think that sums it up, but I will rite more. EVERY year for the past 4 or so years, I have went to hotel for my birthday and enjoyed a me day to gather my thoughts for the coming year. Every year I have stayed someplace different. MY SEARCH IS OVER. This reasonably priced bed and breakfast is BAR none the end of my search. I paid extra for a early check in and thank goodness I did. All other "suites" were unoccupied or getting cleaned and because of this I was able to tour 8 of the 9 suites, one of which I was staying in (The Corn Crib). They welcome you to walk the property and give you a brochure with a brief history of all "suites". I keep " " suites because a B&B is usually one big house and the bedroom are where guest stay, mingle and eat. At Stevenson Ridge, ALL suites are private. No one next door to hear my plethora of moviethon's going all late and vice versa. My own entrance, my own kitchenette, my own fireplace and more then a bedroom to spread out. What more could you ask for. Granted, there is no one to serve breakfast or dinner, which SOME B&B's offer, but it is available to you upon request, delivered to your suite. The Corn Crib, I think, is the more modern of the 8 that I saw, but ALL have a TV and DVD. ALL have net access though the closer you are to the main house the better the connection. All have a fire place, of which I burned until I went to sleep. It is a gated property, which was comforting security wise since I was alone. The Civil War House, The Riddick House and The Log Cabin are 2 "bedrooms" all other are one. ALL offer a very fascinating plethora of antiques. I just can't say enough about this place...though they could use some or at least one in the middle, flood lights so the property isn't quite so pitch black at night. Needless to say, my search for a birthday retreat is OVER!
