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.

    Just celebrated our daughter's wedding at the Silk Mill this past weekend. What a lovely venue!! Sarah was a delight to work with, and made the whole afternoon and evening totally stress free. From initial contact, to booking, to several walk throughs, to the magical evening, the Old Silk Mill was perfect!!

    I had my wedding at the Silk Mill on 09/01/2018. I could not have been happier with everything. From start to finish the staff was amazing. We received so many compliments from family and friends about what a beautiful/unique space it was. Our ceremony was held in the chapel. The only downfall of the chapel is that it can get a little toasty in the summer. I would also recommend booking Brianna as the coordinator. She made the entire wedding a BREEZE. Literally did EVERYTHING the day before and day of. You will not regret booking this venue!
