Olde Towne Carriage House is an rustic unique and quaint two bedroom carriage house in Historic Downtown Fredericksburg. We are conveniently located between the City of Fredericksburg's Visitor Center and the Fredericksburg Battlefield Park"s Visitor Center.
Our carriage house has a full kitchen, two bedrooms, bathroom and is very quite and comfortable. Our carriage house is located on the top level of our carriage house and has a unique rustic horse and carriage theme.
**NOTE**; This is a working business we DO have horses on the lot during business hours. Horses are animals need to be cleaned after, so there can be manure on the premises at times. All manure is removed and taken to our farm at the end of the day.
As a guest you have access to the carriage house, amenities and off street parking, we ask that you park in the parking space CLOSEST to the street so we can get our carriages in and out of the carriage house. IF YOU PLAN TO ARRIVE EARLY OR LATE THE KEYS TO THE APARTMENT WILL BE LEFT IN THE MAILBOX ON THE SIDE OF THE BUILDING.
You can to hitch a ride to the main section of town if you are around when we leave the carriage house between 9:30 am and 10:30 am during tour season, ask us for a ride to the Visitor Center.
Stay for a weekend, week or whole month. It's like having your own home away from home.

Other things to note

Chris and John love meeting new people. We have used Airbnb and think it is a fantastic idea and great way to meet new people. As the owner of Marriage, Carriage and More, LLC dba Olde Towne Carriages; it is Chris' job to let people know how fantastic the City of Fredericksburg can be.
Not only do we provide tours by horse drawn carriages, we provide wedding services, elopement services and Indian/Pakistan Wedding services. We hope you will book one of our wonderful rides.
I have been driving a carriage professionally for 10 years and it never gets old! Fredericksburg is one of the most charming cities I have ever seen.
Our Airbnb is for folks who want privacy as it is a stand alone apartment on the same property we run our carriage company from. It can get very busy so if we seem we are in a rush most likely we are in a rush! Weekends are our busiest time of the week.
