The Almost Home Guest House in Fredericksburg is a nice litte place. It's located on Main St. in the town but it's a little bit of a walk to get there (half mile tops). We walked everyday down to the shops/bars/restaurants and had a great time. It's very convenient to several of the wineries (drivable) and Fredericksburg Winery is just about 1/4 mile away. Enchanted Rock is about a 20 minute drive away and well worth it (if you don't mind a little hike).
We rented Suite A (the larger of the two with a hot tub). It's not a B&B. We never saw the owners and no breakfast was provided (that's what we wanted). It's fairly private. It has a full kitchen and everything you could think of was provided. The beds were comfy and it did kind of feel a little bit like home.
-- full kitchen
-- allows pets ($25 dep required)
-- hot tub
-- 2 bedrooms
-- inconsistent temp throughout the home
-- leaky roof (note: it rained like Hades when we were there)
-- no gutters around house (see above note)
-- backyard deck is not that private
-- traffic noise (what do you expect?)
Overall, this was a very nice place. For the price, I was a little amazed at how nice it was (considering it allowed pets also). I would absolutely stay here again. The home is cozy, the beds are nice, and it's semi-close to everything. The only real negatives were a result of a heavy downpour. I would definitely recommend this place (esp. if you are taking a pet).
