Richard Johnston Inn

The Richard Johnston Inn was constructed by architect John Taylow in the early 1700s. The building stands over 300 years old, along with some other older buildings in Old Towne Fredericksburg. In the 1800's it served as the home to the Mayor of Fredericksburg, Richard Johnston.

The Richard Johnston Inn still reflects the charm and grace of a past era, while providing all of the amenities of today for the comfort of our guests. We offer a large, off street private parking area and a beautiful courtyard for our guests to relax and enjoy. We are a children friendly & pet friendly Inn, with 2 rooms off the courtyard with a private entrance that can accomodate up to two small dogs and children under 12. Our front doors will pour you right into the streets of downtown Fredericksburg, you can walk to shops filled with vintage antique finds, or have brunch, lunch at all the local eateries and dine at Fredericksburg Finest Restuarants.

Chosen by Southern Living Readers Choice Awards as one of "The Best Bed & Breakfasts in The South"
