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.

The Inn is located in the historic Fredericksburg,VA downtown surrounded by homes and commercial buildings from the early 1700’s. If colonial history and civil war history are your interests, the Inn is a perfect base to explore the area. The InnKeeper and her talented staff are reason enough to stay at The Richard Johnson Inn. The atmosphere they create is welcoming and warm without being intrusive. The food was delicious! I will be back as often as I need a respite.

Step back in time and experience sensations from the past. We loved staying in the Kitchen House. On the ground floor, this lovely room features the best of the past and the present. You can feel the history dating back to the 1770s in the brick floor or luxuriate in the jacuzzi tub while sipping some strong brandy provided compliments of your hosts. This historic BnB welcomes you even if you have to arrive late, providing fresh baked goodies in the evening followed by a delectable multi-course breakfast in the morning. They easily accommodated our food allergies as well. Besides the wonderful people who work there, we enjoyed the company of the other guests who had selected this unique setting for their stay in Fredericksburg. There's ample parking in the back and you can explore a variety of shops and restaurants just a few steps away. Although we could only spend one night there, we look forward to coming back!

Robert Johnston Inn is the place to stay in Fredericksburg. The rooms are clean, the parking is excellent. The staff is wonderful. Great location for shopping, eating, and lots of shops within walking distance. We love this place and will continue to go back to the Robert Johnston Inn. Leah Shellkopf

The Richard Johnson Inn has become a home away from home for me and my wife. The staff is wonderful, personable, and accommodating. We've enjoyed the pampering.

Our stay in this B & B was wonderful. We stay in the 'Loft' with a huge bed, comfortable furniture and free chocolates and brandy. During the afternoon an angel baked delicious Brownies and breakfast in the morning was a cooked affair with eggs, bacon, sausage, tomatoes and coffee and orange juice.

This was the perfect location and the Inn was excellent. Everything was perfect. Loved the little touches of brandy in our room, vanity essentials, fresh baked cookies, comfy robes and more! Cindy was super friendly and Cheryl is a great innkeeper and cook. I even left an item behind and they are sending it to me. We will be back!

This was one of the best bed and breakfast experiences I ever had. I would definitely stay here again and recommend that others stay here as well.

As always we had a awesome time staying at the 1890 Caroline House. We enjoyed the intimate surroundings. The Innkeeper is extremely nice. The breakfast was out of the this world. We will definitely stay there again.
Thank you so much for your kind words - we truly appreciate it! The Caroline House is a small, intimate property that takes you back in time. Breakfast is made with love and always with consideration of our guests dietary considerations. And then there is a fresh baked bedtime snack to look forward to every evening! Thank you again and we hope to see you soon!

I came to stay at the Caroline House (a Richard Johnston Inn property) for two nights for mid-week business. I had found that I was the ONLY guest staying at the property for the two nights and therefore had the entire house to myself. There are no property managers who live on site for this location, so it was as if I had rented myself an Airbnb for an outstanding rate! The home was in beautiful condition, updated bathrooms, HVAC and kitchen (which makes all the difference). Since it was just myself I didn't have much interaction with the property manager though the first morning she was there to make me breakfast and left me snacks for the day and when I got home in the evening. At any rate, a beautiful property, in a safe and vibrant part of downtown Fredericksburg that would be an awesome stay for anyone looking to get a classic and historical factor added to their overnight. The "unsatisfactory" score for the onsite dining is because I really didn't engage in any type of cooking from the property manager since I was by myself. She had simply prepared a small fruit bowl and a muffin for me, which was nice but not enough to consider anything "dining". If there was an NA I would have selected that instead.
