                                                              My husband and I celebrated our first wedding anniversary this past weekend in Fredericksburg and stayed at the Shepherd's Haus. It was clean, cozy and the perfect distance to the main square (a little less than a mile, but we enjoyed the walk). Tracy and Michael are very accommodating and enjoyable to work with. I'd recommend the Shepherd's Haus to anyone considering a visit to Fredericksburg!

                                                              Close to downtown Fredricksburg but far enough out to really enjoy some peace and quiet. Wonderful hosts, highly recommended for your stay.

                                                              Great girls weekend!

                                                              We so enjoyed our stay in Fredericksburg. The cottage was close enough to town (could walk in the summer time), but far enough away from the noise and business of downtown! There were 4 girls in our party, and we all slept perfectly! We all loved that there was 2 bathrooms since we all got ready at the same time. Even though it rained, we loved opening the front door and listening to the rain. The weather wasn't too bad and our weekend was perfect! We enjoyed shopping and then having a nice house all to ourselves to come back to! This is a great place to stay if you're looking to relax, and be close to town.
