My husband and I stayed here 2 nights on a Living Social deal for the William Riley Suite. The 1890 Caroline House is run by the Richard Johnston Inn B&B just a few blocks down the road. It has only been open since 2010 and the Innkeeper is Lindi. Laura walked down from the Richard Johnston Inn and checked us...

My boyfriend and I were bed and breakfast first-timers as we arrived at the Richard Johnston Inn and not quite sure what to expect, but we had a lovely experience! Bonnie was very kind and accommodating of our late arrival, and we made it to Fredericksburg just in time to enjoy the gorgeous courtyard as the sun was setting. After...

I have stayed at the Richard Johnston Inn twice in the past year. Our daughter is a freshman at the University of Mary Washington, and the Richard Johnson Inn has been a convenient and charming place to stay. The Kitchen House is a large room with a nice mixture of charm and amenities. My only complaint are the breakfasts. During...

My husband and I visited Fredericksburg for Presidents Day weekend and had a lovely experience at the Richard Johnston Inn. The accommodations were spacious and clean, and the weekend breakfasts were delicious-- one day we had eggs over sundried tomatoes and canadian bacon with melted cheese, and another day we had stuffed croissants. The innkeepers also hosted a wine and...

As soon as we entered, we were greeted by Wendy and the 2 resident dogs. Wendy registered us and informed us of where to find local tourist attraction information. As a long-time area resident, Wendy also provided us with a wealth of local information and suggestions. She also offered to make any dining reservations for us. The suite (the Loft)...

My husband and I decided to try something new for our 16 year wedding anniversary and we have never been to a B&B, so we did some research and chose Richard Johnston Inn.

We had to search for someone to register us upon arrival. The "owner" was not very cordial, but her "greeter" was most pleasant. Our room, "The Loft" in the Richard Johnston Inn was a two floor suite with the bedroom on the upper level. The bedroom television was so low on a table that it was virtually impossible to view...
