We were married at the end of May in Fredericksburg. The Bride's base was the 1890 Caroline House, where she had the place to herself Thursday night (staying in The Sawyer Scott room), and with close friends staying in the other two rooms on Friday and Saturday night. Several members of her family stayed at The Richard Johnston Inn just down the street, and Bride and Groom had breakfast there Friday morning. After the wedding Saturday, the married couple also stayed at the 1890 Caroline House. And boy did we like it! Friendly interactions with the staff were the rule from when we first called to talk about booking through our entire stay. Breakfasts were excellent and our accommodations very comfortable. We liked The Sawyer Scott as a generously sized room with a fantastic bathroom (we wanted to take the tub home with us!). It wasn't until we saw The William Riley Suite in person that we realized how big it was, and a different bride might have preferred the larger space on the ground floor more than the The Sawyer Scott. For us, however, we were quite pleased. The location on Caroline Street of both The Richard Johnston Inn and the 1890 Caroline House is terrific for enjoying historic district Fredericksburg with so much in easy walking distance. We were very pleased with the whole experience, and we look forward to staying there again in the years to come.
