The Space

Need a break from the generic hotels along I-95? Let me give you a room in a real home, with a real mom and morning coffee that begins in my vintage coffee grinder handed down from my grandmother. If you've been on the road for awhile, you can do your laundry here and get a fresh start again. On your way in and out of town, take note of charming and historic Fredericksburg. Or spend a couple of days learning about the rich Civil War history that grew into a rich cultural and artistic community.

My young adult son and I are honored to offer three private bedrooms on the second floor, each listed separately. This listing is for the queen bedroom shown with exposure from the east and south. You are steps to the bathroom which is sparkling clean and shared with my 20 year old son. Bed is freshly made with cotton linens and towels are provided.

I have a clean, spacious and elegantly furnished colonial home on a street known to Civil War buffs and within walking distance to Old Town Fredericksburg, Mary Washington Hospital and the University of Mary Washington. Parking is plentiful, WiFi is available throughout our 2900 square foot home, and the kitchen and baths are shared. While we don't own a pet we do occasionally pet sit for a friend.

Let us know if you don’t have soap or shampoo. We’re happy to share. Want coffee? No problem. I'm happy to make you coffee with my French press in the morning. Just let us know what you need.

Our home is located in a quiet, tree-lined neighborhood of classic homes directly across the street from the University of Mary Washington. Access to I-95 is two miles away and the train station, offering the southernmost stop on the Virginia Railway Express, is 1.5 miles. Coffee shops, restaurants and unique shops and art galleries are one mile from the house.

Fredericksburg is home to many historic battlefields, museums, art galleries, restaurants, shopping and more. The shopping district will lure you with free two hour parking. If you are without a car, I am happy to transport you to public transportation or the grocery store if our schedules align. I’m a long time resident of Fredericksburg and will gladly share what I know about this beautiful region.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Denise was an incredible host, offering superb accommodation, ideal location, and personal attention to make my visit as enjoyable as possible. I was in town for an adventure race, and returned muddy & injured AFTER check-out time. Denise was incredibly kind, helping me to clean up and get the medical care I needed. She definitely went above and beyond being just a "host" and I will absolutely recommend her listing to everyone traveling through Fredericksburg. Thank you, Denise!

  • Denise is a friendly and welcoming host. My husband and I visited Fredericksburg for my 20th reunion at Mary Washington. The location could not have been more perfect and it was such a comfort to have a beautiful home to return to each day. Highly recommended!

  • We had a fantastic stay! Denise is very friendly and accommodating. We came to visit for the Marine Corps Half Marathon in May. She went above and beyond, even laying out coffee, fruit, and banana bread for us before we left for the race at Zero-Dark-Thirty!

  • Denise has a lovely and clean home and was a hospitable host. I enjoyed my brief stay and look forward to staying again sometime. I would highly recommend staying at her home. I also enjoyed doing some shopping and walking around the downtown Fredericksburg area.

  • I had a wonderful 3-night stay here-- Dee's home is lovely and the bedroom very comfortable. She could not have been more hospitable. Coffee and banana bread in the morning, restaurant and other recommendations very helpful! Was visiting my daughter at UMW--this is perfect location when visiting campus. I hesitate to give this rec because selfishly I want to keep this gem to myself!
    We had a rare snow storm the eve/morning of my departure and Dee even offered to drive me train station. She is an outstanding host!

  • Denise has a wonderful charming home adjacent to a university campus, 5 minutes from Old Town Fredericksburg. She is a delightful, charming hostess. A true pleasure having the opportunity to stay in her home.

I am a multifaceted woman much like the stones I use in my artisan jewelry designs. I have worn many hats from nurse anesthetist to jewelry designer, single mother (to three young men), founder of non-profit art co-op, amateur photographer, orchid grower, exercise/nutrition enthusiast. I also love design, fashion, and the sea. I love hosting, meeting new people and sharing my home with others.
