    Amazing Stay
    The property was just as described in the listing. It was such a quiet and quaint little house just a short drive or walk from downtown. The property managers were such sweet people and very accommodating. We will definitely stay here again in the future!

    Rest easy at this quiet B&B near Main Street
    We have a nice relaxing stay at the Gillespie home in Fredericksburg. Mr. Gillespie welcomed us to his home upon arrival and his wife Mrs. Gillespie was an amazing cook who met us every morning for an amazing organic breakfast. We were within walking distance to Main Street and truly enjoyed our quiet stay.
