Caroline Street, Downtown Fredericksburg

The Kenmore Inn’s prime location in the historic downtown area allows for a great stay for history lovers and weekend travelers alike. Enriched in nearly three hundred years of American history, Fredericksburg is the perfect site for all ages to enjoy.  During the Civil War, Fredericksburg hosted a number of pivotal battles due to its strategic location between the Confederate capital city, Richmond, and the Union capital city, Washington DC. The location today remains an important halfway point between the cities, hosting 1.5 million tourists and travelers each year.

Sites like Mary Washington’s House, James Monroe Museum, Hugh Mercer’s Apothecary Shop, Kenmore Plantation, and more are just blocks away. Antique stores, clothing boutiques, coffee shops, and restaurants line the downtown streets that surround the Inn.  Guests of the Inn can venture out mid morning to enjoy the antique shops, stop for lunch at a local cafe, continue through their day by shopping and then enjoying the social downtown of Fredericksburg with a coffee or beer.

UMW campus just a mile away!
