Amoroso Cottage

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: my favorite part of vacation is always the hotel/resort/bed and breakfast—i.e., the accommodations. I research this more than I research activities in the area, restaurants, etc. May seem backwards to some people, I guess, but I really enjoy the relaxing down time of a trip more than anything else, and so does my husband, so it seems natural to us.

We’re getting back in the swing of a new, non-vacation week now, but I’ve been having such a nice time going through pictures from last week in Fredericksburg. Kind of makes me feel like I’m back there again.

We stayed in Amoroso Cottage, which might possibly be the quaintest little B&B you ever did see. You get the whole three bedroom house to yourself, and it. was. fabulous. I was like a little kid in a candy shop while we were there… happily perusing the rooms and marveling at all the delicious vintage touches around every corner, the warm hardwoods, and that general feeling of being wrapped up in a cozy, worn blanket that an old house offers.  We absolutely loved this place.

I have plenty more pictures from the trip, but for now here are some photos from the cottage. I hope they brighten up your Monday morning! :)

  6. I want this decorator to come re-do my apartment.

    This looks like such a wonderful spot to relax - glad you two got some time before summer school starts up!

    My favorite picture is actually the one of your legs in the mirror. That's such a cool shot.

  10. I love the feel of that place. This might sound cheesy, but your pictures really make it come to life. I would stay there in a heartbeat. And I am so with you on the accommodations. It's always what I spend the most time researching, as where my husband will just randomly pick some place and we'll end up sharing our hotel room wall with a nightclub (true story).

  17. Looks like so much fun -- love it. My boyfriend and I are bed and breakfast obsessed ourselves! We stayed at an adorable place in Fredericksburg (Virginia, that is!) for our anniversary in March and I just fell in love with the place. So warm and cozy. We had the whole upstairs to ourselves (not as nice as a whole house, but still awesome!) and it was like staying with a beloved, eccentric and welcoming aunt. :)

  20. Oh my goodness, you picked a great place to stay!!! I have to say that a great trip can seriously be ruined by a bad experience with wherever you are staying.....I tend to put the most time deciding where we will stay and even coming up with sime ideas of where to eat too.

    Hope your trip left you feeling refreshed!

  40. Your photos always take my breath away! I love all of them. We went to Fredricksburg last year in November and stayed at this little cottage called "Cottages Inn". Pure heaven! We had a little one bedroom house just to ourselves and it was wonderful. I am like you; I put way more thought into the accommodations than the actual stuff we'll be doing during the day! Nothin' wrong with that... :)

  44. I bought one of the Living Social deals for a bed and breakfast a few hours away. My boyfriend at the time and I spent an amazing weekend there last winter! I honestly didn't even worry about what was around and we just camped out in the beautiful room! It was the best! And that's actually when he proposed to me!!! When I think Bed and Breakfast, I think: 'let's camp out and never leave'... not: 'let's tour the town!' And I wouldn't change a thing!

    Looks like you had a wonderful time! Such a cute place!

    Oh, the town we were in had a few great antique shops! We did end up venturing out for some fresh air for a few hours ;)

  45. This looks like the most relaxing quaint B&B!!

    I've been eager to stay in one myself one day...not by myself of course. That's just weird.

  46. Oh. My. Goodness. What a gorgeous cottage!!! You know how a lot of people want mansions, etc? Well, Jen and I just dream of a cozy little nook. A sailboat, a cottage, a teeny tiny gothic "mansion" (as in look, not size.) This is just... Stunning.
