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.

The space

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.

Guest access

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.

Interaction with guests

Our company Olde Towne Carriages runs tours and provides services for private rides, and weddings. We are one of the historical experts in this amazing historical town. We will be available to give you a overview of what the City and surrounding areas have to offer you!

Please be advised that we do not live at this location. We are at the location most mornings and evenings (with the exception of February thru March).

Although we are not available to cook breakfast for you, if your stay is more than two days we will stock the refrig with eggs, bacon or sausage, muffins or bagels, cream cheese and beverage for those of you staying for three days or more. We will provide muffins, orange juice and fruit for those staying less than three days. Please tell us if you are vegetarian.

Other things to note

Since we are real working carriage house our horses are there during short periods of time. They may poop or pee in their pen so if this type of thing offends you, more than likely you should not stay with us.

Because we do not live at this location and we are very busy most of the year our interaction with guests are limited, just because of our hectic schedule. When you arrive we will be more than happy to answer questions, show you around the property and introduce you to the horses (if they are on site).

The Carriage House is in a great location, however it is in the older part of town; Fredericksburg is between Washington DC and Richmond, VA. There is so much to do in the area! -Taking the horse and carriage tour
-Tubing on the River
- Picnics in the Parks
-YMCA Water park
-Kings Dominion
-Local wineries
-National Marine Corp Museum

GREAT LOCATION if you are visiting Fredericksburg! Central to so much downtown and our hosts were beyond accommodating to our special request for our wedding weekend!

The home was perfect for our family of 3. Its in a quiet, lovely residential neighborhood a few blocks from downtown, with great parks nearby. The "carriage house" was very clean, comfortable and private.

We met our daughter, who lives in DC, for the Labor Day weekend in Fredericksburg. The Olde Carriage House was perfect for the three of us. It's in a good location - kind of midpoint between the battlefields and the historical district. It was clean, quiet, and comfortable. Christine makes it easy to check in and check out. We actually got to see the carriage house in use, which was delightful.

Close to most of the historic sites in the area (walking distance to downtown). Quiet, private location. Well cared for and clean. Having owned horses in the past, what little odor there was from them (and you could only get a whiff of it when outside near the stall) was actually quite pleasant for us. Great customer service. We would gladly stay with Christine again.

Good location. We walked to University of Mary Washington and to the restaurants and shops in the historic district. The house was clean and the kitchen well stocked with things that made our first night and morning very easy. We also enjoyed seeing the horses. We had no problems and would stay here again.

This carriage house is truly a treasure. Christine is a great hostess and the location cannot be beat. I love it!

Nice time and good location, especially if you want to see the Fredericksburg battlefield. (We walked downtown, too.) Unlike many others, we never saw a horse! But that was okay. We never met the hosts but directions were clear and we checked in no problem. If stairs are an issue, this is not the place for you, but otherwise it was as advertised.

Response from Christine:
Thank you we live on a farm and our well water has a lot of minerals in it. So I think I need to start using fabric softener.

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.
