Recent Fredericksburg Reviews

Total peace and relaxation with all the action a hop, skip and a jump away.

5 of 5
This is my favorite VRBO of all time! Patricia was a pleasure and went above and beyond to ensure our stay was nothing shy of perfect. The grounds were beautiful..perfect for strolling around/ walking with the pups and we enjoyed having coffee and wine outside at the picnic tables. The interior was insanely comfortable! I definitely wanted to spend more time indoors than what is normal for me. The reviews are right, the bed and the sheets are magnificent. The place is shabby chic with the soft linens, claw foot tub and hardwood floors. I will definitely visit again in the very near future.

Quaint, comfortable little cottage. Fireplace was perfect for cold weather. Well located & quiet.

My daughter and I enjoyed the comfortable bed and fireplace. We were close enough to the main activities downtown but far enough away to enjoy quiet evenings and more mornings. Recommend highly.
