History

After it was built in 1930, the inn was known as The Wakefield Hotel. It was located in what used to be the Downtown Mill District of Fredericksburg, Virginia. The inn hosted many travelers driving along Route 1 between Maine and Florida. From 1970 to 2007 the venue was known as the Fredericksburg Colonial Inn. It changed hands in 2007 and underwent renovations to exude the atmosphere of a boutique hotel. The new owners also converted the Old Silk Mill on the property to a wedding venue and event space, occupying the building for the first time since 1889.

    Great Wedding Service with a rustic feel in the city

    This place has everything in one. It has a rustic feel in a historic inn and mill, a great chapel, and accessibility to the urban city. The rooms remind you of a time when you were in rural america, while the city feel makes you feel connected still and not in the boonies. The way the ceremony is done is beautiful. The staff open the doors of the chapel making it feel special. The food is okay at the reception, but the tasting was better cooked, but still good overall. The rooms were great for the feel of the place. I would recommend them first for those looking for something unique and special, but not so far out or priced out of their range as this was within a wedding of $20000 budget with everything included.

    Hi Walter! So happy you and Theresa had your dream wedding at the Silk Mill. We truly love it when couples use the entire facility ( the chapel, courtyard, rooms) and experience everything we have to offer. Its nice to see your friends & family stay, relax and visit Downtown Fredericksburg together.

    November Wedding

    Amazing and unique venue with an A+ staff! The day went off without a hitch- my day of coordinator was on point, my planning was executed down to the very last detail, and the pictures that have already come out of it are breathtaking. Everyone complimented the food and the ambiance all night! Super, super recommend!
