The 1700's - a time of history, independence and glorious homes. Come to The Richard Johnston Inn located in the heart of Historic Fredericksburg, 3 blocks from the train station, for an unique, upscale 18th century inn. The Inn was constructed by architect, John Taylow, one of the original signers of The Declaration of Independence and served in the 1800's as the home of the mayor of Fredericksburg, Richard Johnston. The award winning Richard Johnston Inn still reflects the charm and grace of a past era while providing all of the amenities for the comfort of our guests.

We stayed in "The Loft". The room was beautiful and clean. The staff was friendly and helped us pick a spot for dinner. We would stay here again.

On the main street in historic Fredericksburg, the inn offered the opportunity to explore on foot easily and enjoy the character of the city. Breakfast and afternoon tea were delicious. Look forward to returning.

This delightful in right on Caroline Street is the place to stay if you want to be in the midst of restaurants, shops, breweries and history. We spent 2 nights in the lovely Kitchen Room with our pets. Yes! It's pet friendly! Our 2 dogs were very welcome.The Kitchen room was very beautiful with all the amenities you could ask for. The brandy was a nice touch. The beds are very comfortable. We didn't get to see any of the other rooms except online but I am certain they are just as wonderful. All the ladies that make this Inn run are some of the nicest I have encountered when away. Very accommodating and friendly. The breakfast was excellent and a great way to start the day. Our daughter lives in Fredericksburg so we will be back again!!! If you want to be right in the action stay at this fantastic B&B!!

We spent two nights at the Richard Johnston Inn, and I felt that we received execellent value for money. The room was very nice, the bed was comfortable, and the breakfast was quite imaginative and tasty. We will definitely go back the next time we are in Fredericksburg.

We have lived in the region for 10 years but had never stayed downtown. Decided it was finally time to do so. We will definitely be back! Beautiful place and the service was amazing. Look forward to staying again soon.

Great historic atmosphere. Rooms very well kept and nice. Food was awesome. Appears to have plenty of staff available to keep things going. Walking distance from lots of shops and restaurants. One drawback concerned the rooms facing the main street. Bars shut down around 1230 pm on weekend and it got a little loud for about an hour.

My wife and I stayed at the sister property of the Richard Johnston Inn and couldn't have had a better stay! Both properties are run by Cheryl who, with her staff of Cindy, Breanne and Shannon were all tremendous hosts who made us feel like we were staying in their house! Food, accommodations, we were in the William Riley Suite which was fantastic, service and ambiance were all outstanding. Great historic downtown location was close walking distance to everything. Highly recommend either or both properties! Larry and Carole

Stayed here to celebrate my wife's birthday. Had a lovely time strolling through town antique shopping. The Inn was a great resource for places to see and eat. They were also quite accommodating on Sunday before we departed, allowing us to spend some time revisiting some shops. Breakfast was quite delicious. On par with even the best of restaurants. Thanks!
