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.

Weekend Getaway

4.6 on January 17, 2016

My wife and I have stayed at Stevenson Ridge many times over the last several years. We absolutely love it here. The cottages are not only historic but meticulously restored with the utmost attention to detail. We have stayed in the Log Cabin mostly & the Post Office once. HIGHLY recommend Stevenson Ridge.

Was an early Christmas gift for my boyfriend. Very cozy Post Office cabin with real fireplace. We loved the tranquilty of being in the woods!

Tobacco Barn

4.2 on November 16, 2015

We had a great stay in the Tobacco Barn for our Anniversary. The room was unique and well appointed, the bathroom was beautiful. We settled in for the night, made a fire, it was exactly what we were looking for and the price was great compared to other similar places we have stayed. Small suggestions for a bit of improvement: There was a wedding going on when we checked in, and there was no indication of where we should go, no employees making themselves visible. We ended up asking someone who worked in the kitchen where we should check-in. Everything worked out fine, but a bit unsettling, maybe a call to guests who might arrive during such an event with a heads up about the procedure would be nice. Also, might be a good idea to stock rooms with some type of firestarter, perfectly capable of making a fire, but with just the newspaper, it's a little more work/attention than I might want to give when trying to be on vacation. This is a nice touch I've seen at other locations. We did not eat a meal on site, nor were we expecting to, so no opinion there.

Great place, good time

Gated community, low traffic, very peaceful at night. During the day there were lawnmowers etc running and I wish it had been quieter, but that stuff has to be done, so what are you going to do? Firewood was provided for the fireplace, nice climate control, very clean environment. Overall a good time and will probably visit again.

Wedding Venue

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.
