Directions to Our Inn near Fredericksburg, VA
Lavender Heights Bed and Breakfast is easy to find as our lodging is centrally located about half-way between Washington DC and Richmond, about 2.5 miles east of I-95, near both Stafford, VA and the University of Mary Washington. We sit on Stafford Heights in the village of Falmouth where the Union troops set up artillery batteries as they readied for the Battle of Fredericksburg on December 12, 1862.
We are closely surrounded by many area attractions including the boutique shops of Old Town Fredericksburg; historic sites and museums about the Colonial Era, the Civil War and influential peoples of the region; and art galleries, museums, dinner theater, farmer’s markets, golfing and the new Grapes and Grains Trail!
