Walking Distance to Main St. | Historic District | Sleeps 8 | King Beds | Kitchenette | Hot Tub | Children Welcome | No Pets
Just one block off of Main Street in Fredericksburg’s charming Historic District, Bijou B&B (pronounced bee-zhoo) holds true to its name which means, “a jewel; something delicate and exquisitely crafted.” The home is a renovated gem that holds a special place in local history. This home formerly belonged to Lisette Mueller, who served as midwife at the birth of Fredericksburg's most famous son, Admiral Chester Nimitz. Redesigned years ago as a duplex, Bijou offers two completely separate accommodations, Suite Jeannine and Suite Charmaine (with no interior door connecting the two units). Thoughtful renovations were completed throughout this home’s interior, preserving much of its original charm while adding modern style and conveniences. Neutral colored shiplap walls and stunning wide plank wood floors form the backdrop of the interior spaces. When the whole house is reserved, this beautiful home can accommodate up to 8 guests.
Two front porches add curb appeal to this historic home and give guests a place to relax and watch the world go by, complete with luxurious oversized swings and comfy cushions. The back patios offer a private hot tub for each suite. The separate amenities offered at Bijou are ideal for multiple couples traveling together who still want to enjoy some separation and privacy!
Suite Charmaine (pronounced Shar-Mane) is on the right portion (east side), offering plenty of room to spread out with approximately 1500 square feet divided between two floors. Relax in the living room alongside flickering flames in the gas fireplace or enjoy a movie on the wall mounted 42” flat screen TV with cable. The suite’s kitchenette offers a refrigerator, microwave, and coffee maker with just enough space for preparing simple meals or snacks. The master suite is also on the main level, offering a king bed and en suite bathroom with an oversized shower for two. Upstairs you will find the second bathroom (with tiled shower), as well as two additional bedrooms, both boasting spacious king beds. (PLEASE NOTE: the stairs are original and are very steep, retaining the home’s historic authenticity. Guests with mobility issues should not reserve Suite Charmaine.)
Suite Jeannine (pronounced Juh-Neen) lies on the left portion of the home (west side), and offers a cozy, romantic space for two. This residence also has a spacious living room with a gas fireplace and flat screen TV. Suite Jeannine not only offers a kitchenette… it offers a PINK kitchenette, always a hit with our guests! The spacious single bedroom in Suite Jeannine boasts a king bed and en suite bathroom with a pedestal sink and separate tiled shower alongside a beautiful freestanding soaking tub. Set the stage for a romantic evening with a relaxing soak, letting your cares slip away.
Reserve the whole, always-popular Bijou B&B to enjoy some privacy, while still keeping your travel group together on one property!
NOTE: Two luxury cottages will be COMING SOON to this amazing property! Stay tuned!
