DRIVE TIME – Two hours, 40 minutes.

THE SCOOP – It is hard to believe that this intimate, three-guestroom B&B, established in 1859 and faithfully restored to period detail in 2011, was used as a hospital by Union troops during the Civil War. The walls have the graffiti, bayonet marks, bullet holes and carvings to prove it. Its position on 27-acres inside Fredericksburg National Battle field Park ensured its place in history.

AMENITIES – A romantic, candlelight breakfast is included with your overnight stay. Pets are welcome.

DON’T MISS – D.P.  Newton is a usually a quiet person, but he comes to life when discussing the hundreds of Union and Confederate artifacts he’s collected from the nearby battlefields for his White Oak Civil War Museum.
