We've stayed in B&Bs all over the country, and this is our favorite! The rooms, breakfasts, gardens and decor are all superb, but the best thing of all is Jennie. She makes you feel like you're staying with your favorite sister, or best friend.

My stay at the Lavender Heights started out wonderful. Of course the first thing was the House itself but Jenny made it all worth while. She was such a pleasure and made the stay absolutely enjoyable from her delicious breakfast (pancakes & scones) to the extra touch she put on my Surprise Engagement. Yes, my now finance proposed to me at Lavender Heights and I could not have asked for a better stay or way to spend my 2016 Valentines!!!! Thank you Jenny for making such a memorable moment, extra special. Sincerely, Jamie ¿

Lavendar Heights was a great getaway with southern charm. The grounds are beautiful and peaceful with benches, water fountains, and flowers. I only wish I had had more time to spend relaxing in them. The rooms were incredibly clean and breakfast was filling and tasty. Jenny took great care of us!

This is how the B&B experience should be throughout the enterprise. Innkeeper is warm, helpful and friendly; rooms are immaculate and well appointed; and there are lots of reminders of local and personal history to really make it feel like home. I recommend it highly and without reservation (pardon the expression).

We celebrated our 25th anniversary with a two-night, three-day getaway in Fredericksburg (VA) and at Lavender Heights - kayaking, hiking, wine tasting, dining, and relaxing. Location, site / house, rooms, ambiance, hospitality, and food were simply superb. We couldn't have enjoyed our getaway more. A true "keeper."

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
