About Jim and Karen Richardson

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: Jim and Karen Richardson operate the 3 Agape Cottage guest houses . Jim handles the reservations while Karen decorates the homes and makes sure the cottages are in perfect condition, both inside and out. Together, they are a good team that give a positive experience to the guest staying at Agape Cottages. Jim also operates the Linens n More in Fredericksburg and all guest at Agape Cottages receive a discount in the linen store during their stay.

Why the Owner Chose Fredericksburg:

Agape Cottages were originally purchased for use as a warehouse for the linens n more in town. Because of the close proximity to town and their charm, they turned out to be desired properties by our guest. One common yard for all 3 houses make this a great property for groups or a quaint get away for just two.

The Unique Benefits at this House:

Extra special care in decorating the houses by Karen Richardson, make your stay feel like home. The 1939 front house reminds you of grandma's house only decorated in todays home fashions. The back home is new construction yet is patterned after a craftsman home of the 30s. The side queen suite is new construction that gives extra room for those needing extra space for the front or back house or can be used for the couple just wanting a quiet get away.

Cute place

  • 4 of 5

The place is small with high end finishes. The owner leaves plenty of snacks and beverages. The place was clean and the owner's description is accurate.

The best place to stay in Fredericksburg.

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time to stay at Agape Cottages and we're looking forward to many more visits. Location is perfect, in a quiet neighborhood only a few minutes walk to main street. Karen and Jim are the nicest people and amazing decorators, everything is beautiful and the attention to detail is obvious including their personal cleaning...feels like coming home each time. We've stayed in the side cottage both times which is a perfect size for a couple and have taken advantage of the porch to drink wine "freshly" purchased at one of the many nearby vineyards along with a few of the snacks in the ample selection basket. We're looking forward to staying in the front cottage the next time we bring friends who we know will also enjoy this jewel in the city of Fredericksburg.

We found the room well stocked with more than adequate soft drinks and a large selection of snacks. I am accustomed to having these items in your room, but you don't dare drink or eat the drinks or snacks without doubling your bill at checkout. I asked the owners of the B&B and he said: "they are all yours to do with as you wish at no charge." I was elated. So my wife and I, as well as some guests enjoyed the snacks and soft drinks.

But the items in the bathroom were more amazing than the snacks and drinks. I found everything there, from a razor, shaving cream, shampoo, soaps and even a first aid kit. That kit came in handy when I cut my toe and needed it. And since "it was all mine to do with as I wished" it saved me a trip to the pharmacy which I had no idea of where it was.

It was obvious, that whoever is in charge of this B&B, they cared about the property and people who chose to stay there.

And outside there were BBQ grills, rocking chairs and an outdoor fan to keep you cool as you gazed at the stars. Amazing.

Amazing property!!

  • 5 of 5

Jim and Karen were excellent hosts. In addition to the side cottage, we rented the other two houses for Oktoberfest weekend. The houses are beautifully maintained and decorated with a nice lawn and patios for gathering. Was wonderful to be able to mingle easily between the houses. These are a short walk to Main Street. Would recommend to anyone or group! Can't wait to stay again.

Perfect getaway spot!

  • 5 of 5

I'm not sure how Jim and Karen do it, but they have the gift of hospitality. The side cottage was immaculate, relaxing, and stocked with Pocky, one of our favorite Japanese treats. Who thinks of Pocky? I'm sure the selections rotate, but that made us smile.
