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.

This was our second stay and we had such a great time. Breakfast is always good and their evening cookies were yummy. Conventiently located. The courtyard is relaxing esp by the fountain. Cheryl is a wonderful Innkeeper. The highlight of our stay was sitting in one of the main rooms on a sunday evening talking to Cheryl is some of the other guests for several hours. It was so nice!

This is a small located in right in old town Frederickburg. The owner was personable as were the other staff members. I did not care for the French toast breakfast but the other three in our party enjoyed it. They graciously offered to make me something else which was very thoughtful. Would definitely stay here on our next weekend get away.

Such a beautiful inn and such warm and welcoming folks. Thanks for making us feel at home. The rooms are extremely clean and the breakfast was delicious. As we had to leave before breakfast started, the inn keeper made us a quick egg and yogurt fruit breakfast. So kind and so yummy. Will see you again soon.
