My husband and I stayed at the Blue Cottage during a weekend getaway to Fredericksburg. The cottage is older and has antique charm, but has enough modern amenities that you won't feel too out of touch. The house was very clean and everything was very easy to find as needed. It seemed like as soon as we had a question, we'd look down and there would be a note from the owner that answered it, for example, the wireless password.

The concept of a 'block' in Fredericksburg (as in, the house is 4 blocks from main street) appears to be slightly askew from what we were used to (country block maybe?), but the location is still very convenient for getting to town. We didn't use the car at all while we were there. There are bikes at the cottage, but they have seen better days. So if you have your own and plan on using them a lot, it might be a good idea to bring.

In summary, the house is very charming and has what you need for a getaway stay. There are only 2 'real' beds, so I think it would feel pretty crowded if you were trying to have 6 people stay there, especially for an extended period of time.

How easy was it to book the property? How helpful were the directions to the property?
How easy was key pickup/access to the property? Overall condition of the property
