The Boutique Hotel Experience--It's All About Authenticity

Joe & Evy make a "boutique hotel" stay a truly exceptional experience.

Just what is a boutique hotel you ask? The official definition is a small hotel in a unique setting, but for many people who have stayed at the Frederick House over the years, adding the words “authentic experience” is really what staying in a boutique hotel is all about.

Yes, the Frederick House is a unique facility made up of seven historic houses smack dab in the middle of a vibrant Virginia main street community. Yes, Staunton is known for having a big city arts, culture and food scene wrapped in a small town package. Yes, the convenience of being able to walk to fine dining and experience world-class theater and music festivals just blocks from your room is definitely a perk. And yes, having the natural wonders of the Shenandoah Valley just short drive away is remarkable.

But it’s the special welcome, the great service and the sincerity of the hosts and staff that Frederick House guests rave about. When the people serving you know and appreciate where they live and truly enjoy sharing it with their guests, the travel experience is exponentially enhanced! Here’s what just a few of the Frederick House’s many guests have to say about the boutique hotel experience:

“The Frederick House has all of the important perks (comfortable bed, iron, TV, Internet, etc) of a large hotel, and with the quality and individual attention you expect in a B&B (wine glasses, bath robes, etc.)”

“The hosts were really helpful and just delightful. The breakfast was very, very good, with the menu on the coffee mug.”

“Joe and Evy were both accommodating and hospitable; they are great innkeepers and they are thoroughly integrated into the local community.”
