I absolutely love this place. The bathroom is very cozy and romantic. The bed is awesome. I slept like a baby. The Front Porch has been very clean each time I have stayed. The location is great. Just Wonderful!

My wife, Terri, and I wanted to explore Fredricksberg and in particular, heard about all the great B&B's. We went on-line and found "The Back Porch". The pictures of this unit are great, but don't do it justice. When you first arrive, you quickly notice how nice an quite the neighborhood is. The Back Porch is close to the charming...

We loved that we could walk literally 2 blocks to town. The hot tub was wonderful and even though outside in the side/front, still private.

We did enjoy our stay at the Front Porch but there were a few things that could be improved. It was relatively clean but the front room furniture could use a cleaning or be replaced. The front door had a large space between the door and threshhold that bothered me as I don't like creepy, crawly things like snakes. It...

My husband and I absolutely loved the back porch! The private porch area was so nice. We loved the layout of the bed and breakfast. We had such a great stay and certainly hope to return soon!

This was a unique B&B experience. We had to check in at a different location. This is where we paid the balance and were given the room key. Oddly, we also have to return here to return the key?! It was just like checking into a hotel. I would have rather met with the owner who would have been more...

We stayed at the Front Porch for our 23rd Wedding Anniversary. We looked at many different B & B's searching for the "perfect" one for us. What a great choice we made with the Front Porch! From the comfortable king size bed to the charming decor, everything was perfect! We especially loved the bathroom with the ambiance fireplace and whirlpool...

My wife and I chose to spend our five year anniversary somewhere relaxing, peaceful, and away from the fast pace of the bigger cities as we had in recent anniversaries, and Fredericksburg offered the perfect setting (however, there is much to do in Fredericksburg that is very enjoyable!) We chose the Front Porch Bed and Breakfast because it looked cosy...

My husband and I stayed in March and it was so nice! We are looking for good B&Bs. It's within walking distance of all the shops/restaurants on Main St. and the room was very cozy! The only thing is that the walls were very thin, so we could hear all the noises (coughing, TV, etc) from the guests in the...
