We were here in mid-October to catch a play at the American Shakespeare Center (ASC), tour wine country and hike in the Blue Ridge mountains. The Frederick House is a great place to do all of this. We even saved money by getting our ASC tickets through the hotel. We were in Bowers 21. This was a very large bedroom,... More

We stayed in the Patrick House Room 27 on 8/31/16. Large suite with pocket doors, canopy bed, decorative fireplace, 2 televisions, beautiful decor. The mnager and his wife were very friendly and accommodating. Highly recommend. Delicious breakfast.

Thank you for your kind and thoughtful response. The fireplace mantle is solid walnut. Someone had removed the original mantle from that suite. I found the mantle you saw at Worthington Hardware in Staunton. It was covered with many coats of dirty paint. I took the mantle apart into its individual pieces to remove the paint. It is a perfect... More

We were on our way home and decided to stop for the night in Staunton, Va. I will admit that we wanted to stay in the history downtown area so we can park and walk.

We had a suite in the same building that has the breakfast room. I cant remember the name. The room was very clean; however there were several issues.

The approach Evy and I have toward the business we created 34 years ago is, "Tell us what you want. If we can, we will achieve it for you." In one aspect of your recent stay we failed.

We loved the Frederick house! The house managers Brian and Eta were so welcoming and worked with our unusual request to bring a medically necessary chair into our family members room. Our rooms were perfect and the breakfast was awesome and very different. Can't wait to return!
