Everything about Braehead is nothing short of amazing!! Deborah and Mary are godsends for any bride or groom to be. I was married here Sept 22, 2017 and not one guest could contain their awe and excit...ement as they strolled they grounds during the entire ceremony/reception. The manor is a historic gem, once accommodating even Robert E. Lee himself. For any just looking for a quaint place to lay your head and a delicious meal before you leave give them a shout as they also serve as a B&B. I can't thank you guys enough for being part of our lives! I cannot tell enough people about you!! 💚 See More

Everything about our stay was perfect! Mary is an absolute gem. She helped plan our vow renewal and it was beautiful. We could not have asked for a better event or visit.

The home is stunning and loc...ated in the heart of Fredericksburg. You're close to everything, but the home is so beautiful, you may not want to leave. See More

My husband and I had a small, intimate wedding at Braehead back in September 2016 with only 8 guests and it was wonderful! The whole experience, start to finish, was stress free and pleasant. Deborah ...did an amazing job planning every last detail of our wedding, which was a wonderful help since we lived over 12 hours away, and the day was everything we had wanted! We had sole use of the Manor and its grounds for 24 hours, and even stayed over night in their magnificent suite. Mary was wonderful in catering to our every need and made a marvelous breakfast the next day. My husbands parents even talk about staying here the next time they come visit from England! Braehead is a magnificent place and the staff are wonderful, warm, and caring. We could not have asked for a better day! See More

Just came back from a 2 night stay at this beautiful B & B! Decorated to it's 1859 glory, Braehead Manor is a wonderful warm and inviting place to stay while exploring Fredericksburg,Va. The Innkeeper..., Mary, was the best! Her gourmet breakfast was delicious and her attention to every detail was amazing. Our room was warm and so comfortable. Bedding and bath linens were top notch. It's just 1 mile from downtown Fredericksburg, so very convenient and quiet. Would definitely recommend! See More

Where to even start!! Braehead Manor is one of my favorite places I have ever stayed. We enjoyed five days and four nights in the Jane Howison Beale suite, which consists of two rooms and a shared b...ath in incredible comfort and opulence, which was perfect for my mother-in-law and me. The historic setting is your perfect "home base" to enjoy all that Fredericksburg and Spotsylvania has to offer. You feel so secluded, another world away, yet you are a few minutes from downtown. You can even see a few sights on foot from this location. What made our stay perfect was Mary, the innkeeper; she was precious. She was so communicative before, during and after out visit, and always nearby to help with any of our needs, even a late-night wine opener. Our breakfasts in the cozy, firelit dining room were a wonderful experience with the other guests and Mary's cooking! You can visit many battlefields, historic buildings, plantations, restaurants and shopping, and Mary can give you recommendations. Highly, highly recommend Braehead Manor for couples and getaways with friends. Although we didn't witness a wedding here, I can imagine it would be lovely. See More

My husband and I just had our wedding here and OooHhh MY Goodness it was amazing! Mary and Deborah make an amazing team! They took such great care of us, made sure we were happy, and even helped me a makeshift bustle for my dress when we found out I didn't have one.
Also, the manor itself is amazing and so inviting that I will most certainly stay again. 10/10 great experience.

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Braehead and the incredible staff! From the moment we set foot on the property Deb and Mary made us feel at home. It's so rare to meet such kind, funny, and ...welcoming professionals!! And the setting!! We threw a bridal shower in the manor and it was absolutely perfect for a history loving bride. I will absolutely be here again one day!!

Thank you, Braehead!!

This is a phenomenal place to stay! The moments I spent there with my family were touched with the magic of the historical charm of this Civil war era home. Mary is an excellent hostess and I could no...t have asked for a more pleasant or comfortable stay. My family will be returning for sure. See More

Excellent bed and breakfast, wonderful rooms and on a beautiful property in Fredericksburg VA. Worth the trip for sure. Quiet, relaxing, and close to anything else you may need to do, or just stay o...n the property and get refreshed. See More

I really don't know where to begin. A beautiful and historic ante-bellum mansion, located on the Fredericksburg Battlefield with two of the most wonderful people (Karen & Warren Bane) I have ever met hosts. There are not enough superlatives in my vocabulary to adequately describe my stay (2-5 May 2014). I guess I can best describe how much I loved the weekend by just saying that when I packed up my car to leave, I felt like I was leaving my home and family! See More

Fabulous place to stay! Right in Fredericksburg Natl Battlefield Park, so close to historic downtown, yet secluded on 26 landscaped acres!
Great place to run, bike, walk with dog, bird peek.

Beautiful setting. Mary, the innkeeper, is phenomenal. She grew up in the area and is quite knowledgeable on all things Fredericksburg.
