We had a wonderful weekend at the inn. Bonnie could not be more accomodating! When we arrived in the pouring down rain and were drenched she suggested a shot of brandy and robes ( both are included in your room). The dogs greet you and are a wonderful addition. Feels like home. Can't wait to go back!

Stayed three nights. Made reservations 4 weeks before arrival. Innkeeper informed us that we could expect to hear noise. And we did hear noise. We heard noise at 5 AM.

We spent our 20th Anniversary at the RJI. It was beautiful, quiet, and cozy! Just what we needed to make our getaway a memorable one. Our room was spacious and comfortable. Laura, Bonnie, and the staff were all so nice and helpful. What a great experience to tell all our friends about. We will definitely come back again.

We have been staying at the Richard Johnston Inn in Fredericksburg, VA for years and love it. It's in the heart of the Old Town with shops and restaurants. The visitor's center is across the street.

I'm not one for frills and, when I travel, I desire a certain degree of "alone time" to read or relax. I could not have stayed at a better place... Staying in accommodations other than our own homes never seems to have that familiar air conducive to real comfort; that just seems to be the natural order of things. Having...
