The Fredericksburg Bakery offers three rooms that may be reserved by one family or friends, occupying the entire upstairs OR, it can be rented as three separate (and private) bedrooms with very spacious common areas to be shared by all the guests. The building has always been known as the old Priess building and was originated around 1888. At that time, it was home to a general store. Since the mid 1950s, it has been run as a bakery- first Bruce Scully, then in the late 1980s, Mike and Patsy Penick bought the bakery until they closed is it in 2014.
The living area (common area) consists of two large rooms with three groupings of sofas and chairs. There are also two square tables and chairs and a round oak table. Adjoining the dining room is a spacious kitchen, which can be used when all three bedrooms are rented to one party. To add to the wonderment -- there is a front and back porch with outdoor furnishings. The front porch has a view of Fredericksburg's Main Street and the back porch overlooks a courtyard.
Three separate (sleeping) suites are available. The front bedroom (Suite 1) is the largest -- a king-size bed with a quilt topper is the focal point of the room. A dresser, wardrobe and a sofa and chair compliment the room and two double doors that open onto the front porch. There is a flat screen television on top of the armoire. A small bath with a shower adjoins the bedroom.
In all areas, the antiques are beautifully displayed with quilts on the walls and groupings of prints and sophisticated country decorator items. The ceilings throughout are 14 feet high and give a feeling of spaciousness -- and days past that is a delight to the senses.
You'll have a private door to your suite (which features a king bed and a full bathroom with a shower) as well as access to the common living and dining areas and the common area porches and courtyard. You won't have access to the full kitchen to cook, but the coffee maker, refrigerator and microwave will be available for use.
