The owners, Joe and Evy Harman, do an outstanding job at taking care of their guests. Our room was tastefully decorated, very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was delicious and Evy easily accommodated my dietary restrictions. This was our first stay in Staunton, and The Frederick House was a perfect choice. We explored the small downtown and had a memorable meal... More

Thank you Joan. Helping our guests enjoy being in Staunton and the Shenandoah Valley is our primary goal. We are pleased you accepted our suggestion for Aioli. We started that restaurant more than ten years ago. We were so satisfied with Said, the chef, that when he asked, we sold Aioli to him. We look forward to seeing you at... More

Joe and his wife at the Frederick House were very warm, caring, and welcoming in what felt like their home. My bedroom was incredibly clean and it was a very charming accommodation to have been privileged to stay in. I look forward to coming back again to The Frederick House and to Staunton this summer!

We had a spacious room, beautifully furnished and decorated, in the attractive historic area of Old Staunton. This B&B is easy to get to from I-81 and walking distance from many pleasant restaurants and attractions. We will definitely come back to explore more of Staunton, including the Shakesperian Theatre.

We stayed at Frederick House for a quick overnight. Frederick House is actually several houses. We stayed in a small but comfortable room a block away from the main building. Our room was clean and quiet and the bathroom was very clean, too. The location was perfect for a quick walk to The Yelping Dog for wine and cheese and... More

On a recommendation, I opted for an overnight at Frederick House rather than a bidding for a low price elsewhere in the area. Now I know where to stay in Staunton. The owners know the area and their property could not be in a better location. Within a block or two there are several excellent restaurants. At their suggestion I... More

This is a great review for Frederick House because it includes Staunton. We have always believed that being in downtown Staunton where so many activities and so much history is on display is an important part of the Frederick House experience. Our award winning historic buildings are as important to the history of Staunton as they are to the experience... More

This is a lovely B&B. The inn keepers are very accommodating and outgoing. We went with another couple and both got suites in the Patrick house. Very cute and spent a great weekend. I recommend this as a great place to stay. The suites had plenty of room to stretch out and relax and were nicely decorated. The homemade breakfast... More

I had been looking forward to staying at the Frederick House because of the reviews and personal comments from friends who stayed there. But I was disappointed. My single room seemed very tired (like an old HoJo's room) and needed to be updated. And the breakfast menu was old and limited, especially for someone with a dairy allergy. The only... More
