Behr House Bed & Breakfast


Behr House is a traditional bed and breakfast offering guests a choice of 5 beautiful room, suite, or cottage accommodations each with its own unique style and décor. Located on just under 5 acres and 1 ½ miles off Fredericksburg’s historic Main Street, the first floor of the main house features the spacious and bright modern farmhouse Great Room common area along with the large farmhouse dining table where breakfast is served. The second floor hosts 4 rooms, two of them suites. One is built with 1900s reclaimed log cabin walls and the other is the loft space from the homestead built in the late 1800s boasting the original long-leaf pine floors. Just across the stone walking path from the main house is the Behr Barn, the 1860s stone barn with loft bedroom which was the first bed and breakfast guesthouse in Fredericksburg (originally known as the Schmidt Barn).

Each of the accommodations include a variety of amenities within the rate such as a delicious freshly made breakfast each morning, complimentary cold or hot beverages with afternoon treat upon your arrival, a glass of wine or non-alcoholic beverage to enjoy in the evening out on the patio or in front of the fireplace before heading out for dinner in town.  Guests may enjoy the Great Room as well as the patio, pavilion, and vast grounds at their leisure.

The Behr Barn

This 1860s stone barn with its 20-inch thick rough-cut limestone walls bears the patina of over one-and-a half centuries of weathering. Now a charming 645 square foot guest house, Behr Barn was the first bed and breakfast guest house in Fredericksburg (originally known as the Schmidt Barn).
