This lovely, 800 sqft carriage house behind the main home is decorated in 'Vintage Playful' and sits atop Stafford Heights overlooking Fredericksburg across the Rappahannock River. We are within minutes of Old Town, Mary Washington University, Mary Washington Hospital, and loads of history. The greater Fredericksburg area is considered the most historic city in the United States, offering Civil War battlefields, the site of George Washington's boyhood home, Colonial Era homes and Revolutionary War events. Families love visiting The Children's Museum and engaging with the history made alive by interpreters at the battlefields and sites throughout the region. Stroll through the boutiques and antique shops around town and delight in our great restaurants and watering holes!
Enjoy the best view in town as you look out the dormer windows, three miles to the next ridge line. Relax in the king bed in the sleeping area and the queen sofa bed in the living area, with a fully-furnished kitchen and dining area. Have a great night's rest on the luxurious, microfiber Comphy sheets. Private, offsite parking; outdoor grill and fire table; and extensive gardens are all available for your retreat.
Within a 30-minute's drive, explore award-winning wineries, breweries and and the only bourbon distillery outside of Kentucky!
The property boasts the site of Union artillery--Capt Rufus T. Pettit's artillery battery of eight cannon. This was one of 80 batteries along Stafford Heights during the Battle of Fredericksburg. Imagine no trees in the area, and 640 cannon raining down on the village of Fredericksburg to thwart Confederate initiatives. As you head down the heights to the Port of Falmouth, visualize slaves wading across the Rappahannock to their freedom when they realized the Yanks were just yards away.
