This house made a perfect place for a ladies' trip! Twelve of us stayed here and in the guest house. I shared a king size bed with a friend, and there was so much room, we barely knew the other one was there. Most of the rooms are spacious (2 bedrooms are small, but adequate). The dining room table seats 12. You'll need to pull some of the dining room chairs over to the living room area, if you want that many people together there.
The kitchen has everything one would need for basic cooking, and the appliances are modern and clean. There's a selection of teas and all of the things like dishwasher detergent, paper towels, etc. are provided. The entire house is decorated in a lovely way, with some fun touches, such as old fashioned hats in one room.
The house was very clean, and in good repair. We didn't have any of the problems that others have mentioned in some earlier reviews. We were there during a freeze, and the heating was great. In fact, we had to turn it down at one point, because we got hot. The house was already warm when we arrived, which was thoughtful.
It's close enough to the main street to walk, but far enough away from it to not hear road noise or feel unsafe from crowds. Fredericksburg has a lot to do, but the entertainment is heavy on wine tastings and shopping. So, if those aren't your thing, then you'll want to drive to some other activities.

When we walked in the front door it was evident that no one had cleaned good in a long time. The furniture was dusty where it sat and it felt like a haunted house . If you like good plumbing Dont stay here the water in the tub backed up on your feet while showering and the toilet Wouldnt flush!
The airconditioner Didnt work for the front of the house which made for a lovely time for our family to get together in the living area at night. Other than the house Fredricksburg was a nice place to visit.

We liked the space. We have spent 3 early Christmas times here and the tree is a nice touch.The location was close enough to main part of town but also far enough away. The space was the main thing. Besides Christmas we also celebrated my 80th birthday with family staying here and friends and other family comng by.
This and Liedchen really great for a large group.

When we first arrived, I was impressed with the homey feel, but was a little concerned about traffic noise in front. However, by night fall there was almost no traffic, and the furnishings and window coverings made for a very comfortable night. It was a rainy weekend, but the front and back porches were very pleasant places to wile away a rainy afternoon. The hot tub was a nice extra. Would stay there again.

perfect rental for a group of friends or family. There was plenty of room for all to stay in one location instead of being split up by renting several smaller homes. The kitchen had all of the items needed to cook a few meals. And the front porch was perfect for just hanging out and relaxing. Only drawback - it seems that since my first visit, every time I want to rent this property, it is already rented...I guess word is getting around that this is a great place to stay.
"Wonderful time in a unique home in walking distance to all the F"

What a lovely little home. Plenty of charm and lots of room. The fireplace was a great bonus for the cool November weather. We walked a block to the big holiday scene at the square and wandered the shops in town. And the kitchen, while not "overly equipped" had almost everything we needed to cook most of a Thanksgiving dinner. Beds were very comfy and clean. Area felt safe and cozy.
"Okay, old place. Terribly disappointed to be accused of damagin"

In the end it was sorted out and the property manager recalled that the table was damaged before we ever got there, but, for two days after returning it was a stressful mess. It was not handled professionally and I will never go back as a result.
Spend a weekend in an old place and owe big money for an "irreplaceable" table. No thanks. These owners should be responsible for the normal wear and tear that comes with use - not try to blame renters.

Mother, two daughters, and 3 spouses stayed here. We had a great time. Went to a peach orchard and picked 27 # of peaches to split up. My mom is almost 91, but it was fun and easy. We used the kitchen a lot. Everything was comfortable and clean. Tried to reserve again for Memoriial weekend but it was already booked. Would love to stay here again. 3 of 4 bedrooms were ginormous! Everyone was happy!

We all really enjoyed The abendlied in Nov 2011 with family and in The Liedchen with my Husband. The homes were very nice. We just loved the location of being only three blocks from all the shops, restaurants and The Rock Box Theatre.
