The 1890 Caroline House provided a very special setting for us to stay, as we came to Fredericksburg, VA to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The B&B was immaculate and tastefully furnished with pieces appropriate to the time period of the house's construction, without the excessive Victorian touches of that era. We stayed in the Luke Henry Room and just loved...

My spouse and I were looking for a relaxing weekend get-away this past October. We decided to take Amtrak from our home in Northern Virginia to Fredericksburg, VA (which is only about a one-hour journey by train). We booked one night at 1890 Caroline House – an elegant and intimate bed and breakfast situated on the main street of the...

A gorgeous B&B in a perfect location! Cheryl was very helpful in sorting a reservation error I had made. The suite was comfortably luxurious and the breakfast was delicious. Sadly we arrived late and had to leave right after breakfast. The suite was clean and my wife enjoyed the tub immensely ;-)... I would (will) stay here again.

Great location, beautiful rooms and an unbelievable experience. Delicious breakfast served in the formal dining room. Definitely have to spend time there to appreciate the magic of it all. Unfortunately, we only spent one night, but hope to return.

For one delightful weekend the Caroline House gave us the ideal setting for a romantic getaway. The reality of the William Riley Suite far exceeded the online description. The living room was ideal for relaxing after exploring historic Fredericksburg. The king-size bed was comfortable and the bedroom tastefully decorated, with plenty of storage. The two-room bath was designed with practicality...

We stayed in the old Kitchen refurbished to a great room! The food was excellent & the Court yard a great place to relax,read or just converse! The room was cozy, yet we had plenty of space to stretch out in! We had Brandy in the room waiting for us!

Thank you so much for your review - we appreciate it! The Kitchen House is original to the 1770 property and one of our guests favorite rooms - for a couple of reasons. It being right off the courtyard/patio makes it so much easier to enjoy that area - open your door and walk out to our garden and fish...

We chose the 1890 Caroline House for our 3-night stay in Fredericksburg based on the number of excellent online reviews and moreover on the prompt replies we received to our inquiries.

This was one of the best lodging experiences we have ever had. I will try to itemize categories for easier reading: 1. Location - I loved the location of this B&B.

We really enjoyed our stay here. We didn’t really think we were B&B people but the Marriott was booked so we tried it. Reluctantly. Since the other two rooms were booked we got the Luke Henry room. It’s not the biggest or the best room in the place but it was really nice and the bed was super comfortable. Our...

My wife and I spent our first anniversary at the 1890 Caroline House at the end of May, and were delighted by our second stay. The hospitality could not have been more genuine from Cheryl and Jessica. Breakfasts were tailored to address one of our gluten free diets. And the Sawyer Scott room, which looks out on Caroline Street, was...
