Oma Rosa Wehmeyer lived in this home until the late 1970’s. The front three rooms were built in 1911 and the other rooms added at a later date. Oma Rosa was known for her wonderful flower growing and flower arranging. The front porch has bent twig patio furniture and a porch swing.
A step into the entry — is like a step back in time. The high ceilings, the light fixture, the hall tree and umbrella stand. The wood floors in the home have been beautifully kept along with all the woodwork. Rugs are place throughout the home to add warmth and colorful touches to the decor. There are two bedrooms, each beautifully furnished in antiques (queen-size beds) and floral comforters with coordinating linens and puffed valances. The den has a sleeper sofa (queen-size) — a wonderful way to watch TV or look out on the screened porch and at the yard beyond. The home has two baths, each charming with embroidered pillowcases fashioned into curtains.
The kitchen and dining room feature the original cabinets and built-in china closet. The dining table and benches are creations of a local craftsman (as is the four poster bed). The parlor is formal with its lovely couch, oriental rug, burgundy chintz valance and lace curtains.
Oma Rosa’s Haus has been lovingly decorated with antique furnishings carefully selected to compliment this fine old home. The rooms are bright and cheerful and appointed with thought for the guests every need.
Oma Rosa’s Haus is located three blocks from West Main Street in a older residential area. It’s within walking distance to the Fredericksburg Herb Farm.

We rented this house while in Fredericksburg, while attending the horse races. It was very easy to locate. It was also very clean and comfortable! We would definatly rent this house again in the future. You get so much more from renting a house rather than a hotel, much better experience! We will also be there this year (2012) for the races and plan on renting a house again.

House was not clean...left over partially burned cigar on the night stand in one of the bedrooms, clots of dust all over the floor, hair on the floor in both bathrooms, previous guests left over groceries left in the refridgerator.
Many of the lights did not work and lots of burned out light bulbs.
Coffee was old & stale, no sugar or creamer for the coffee.
Towels in both bathrooms were worn.
Very disappointing as we took friend who had never been to Fredericksburg on this weekend trip with us.

Considering the stay was nine months ago I would say you're coming in a little bit late. The place is fine for the price but the leaking ceiling when it rained hard and the lack of a real shower mean any increase in price would knock it out of contention. Since it's up for sale no one will probably fix those things but we might come back.

The only complaint that we had on our visit was a lack of some "necessities" commonly used: kleenex and coffee/tea that was supposed to be left in the cabinet. The biggest concern was lights not working (burned out we presume) in the dining area and in the the kitchen. No access to a ladder to change them ourselves.
On a positive note, the place is a rustic farmhouse with it's unique charm. Both bedrooms were very comfortable. The bathrooms were small, but function however older people getting in and out of the bathtubs could be a problem.

I've stayed in a lot of historic homes and some were older than this one but none of them smelled this bad. I think they need to open the windows, clean the air ducts and steam clean the furniture. This place gave us the worst headaches.
It also would be nice to have drapes on all the windows. I felt uncomfortable walking through the house in my pj's with no drapes on a lot of the windows.
The coffee in the kitchen was out dated by several years and there was no creamer or sugar. The remote needed batteries. There also was no place to park except on the street. We were very disappointed.
