Keidel Inn & Gasthaus (Historic/Downtown)

Bedrooms 6
Half Baths1
Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 2 nights


About the property

6 bedrooms, 4 full bathrooms, 1 half bathroom, sleeps 14

History meets luxury...and the Keidel Inn and Gasthaus. This premium property is located on Main Street only steps from the main shopping district. Take a stroll to the Nimitz Museum just across the way or enjoy an evening walk to the best restaurants Fredericksburg has to offer. Enjoy morning coffee on the fabulous garden patio by the fish pond. The main building on the front of the property facing Main Street is the Keidel Inn. Just behind the Inn is the Keidel Gasthaus.

Of course the charm of this property dates back to 1846 when three lots were deeded to Dr. Wilhelm Keidel, the first medical doctor in Fredericksburg. Keidel Inn and Gasthaus is located on a large lot in Fredericksburg that has been in the Keidel family for well over 160+ years. The Gasthaus was built originally facing Main Street and on the very north part of the property. It was the first home of Dr. Victor and Clara Stieler Keidel after their marriage on June 13, 1909. Behind the house stood a screened in large kitchen separated from the wood frame home for safety reasons.

In 1928, the Gasthaus was moved to its present location in order to build the Spanish style home that now houses the Keidel Inn. Two historic oak trees stand near the southwest corner of the main house and mark the spot where the first surveyors of the new city of Fredericksburg buried their tools so when the settlers arrived the following year they would have them to start the construction of their new homes. They built a campfire over the spot so Indians and other travelers would not be able to tell that the soil had been disturbed. The Keidels were a prominent family of physicians in early Fredericksburg and served the community for over 150 years. The property is owned by a granddaughter of Victor and Clara and is being operated as a B&B by a great grandson.

The upstairs portion of the main house offers three bedrooms (two rooms have a king bed, the third has two twins beds). The charming bathroom upstairs offers a tub/shower combination. Downstairs offers two bedrooms (one king & one queen), two baths for extra privacy, a large living room, dining room and foyer with impressive stairway. You will also enjoy a comfortable sitting area and full kitchen.

The Gasthaus has one king bedroom upstairs with a half-bath. Downstairs has a queen air mattress, sitting area, full kitchen & full bathroom.

If you’re looking for space, luxury and location, Keidel Inn & Gasthaus is the place for you!

Best girls trip ever!!!!

  • 5 of 5

There is not enough wonderful things I could say about this property and the owner Jeff. This house has everything you need and more. There was a group of seven girls and we had plenty of run. The house is located right on Main Street so we walked to all the shops and restaurants. I loved that Jeff took the time to show us the property and explain the history of the house. Plus the hot tub and fire pit were an added bonus. Another must is to take the Keidel wine tour were Jeff personally drives you to the wineries of your choice and gives you some amazing history on Fredericksburg. The girls and I are already planning our next adventure at this awesome property.

Perfect space and location!

  • 5 of 5

The Keidel Inn was perfect for our group of 14 girls. The location was walking distance to our favorite shops, downtown tasting rooms, restaurants, and bars. The homeowner, Jeff, was accessible by email and phone before and during our stay in case we needed anything and offered assistance on scheduling wine tours. Overall, it was a perfect experience and we plan to stay there again for our next annual trip!

The house is conveniently located across the street from the Nimitz Museum. You're within walking range of all the shopping and eating you could want ! It will definitely be our place to stay when we return to Fredericksburg !

Beautiful and convenient

  • 4 of 5

This is a nice old historic home. We were there 4 nights. The owner provided 3 breakfast casseroles, cereal, muffins, milk, juice and coffee. There were four couples in our party and more than enough room. We all agreed we will stay there again when we get back to Fredricksberg.

Charming and welcoming house!

  • 5 of 5

What a,lovely old home!. We really enjoyed our stay at Keidel. We certainly had everything we needed for breakfast! The house is so spacious and we loved the patio and fire pit. This is a charming place to stay and would be perfect for a family vacation. We were on a ladies trip and we were all very glad we stayed at this house. The host was wonderful and gave us a full tour of the property when we arrived. I highly recommend Keidel Inn.
