We’ve Got The Perfect German-Inspired Lodging For Downtown Fredericksburg Adventures

Built between the 1850s and the 1930s, Sunday Houses have become cherished reminders of Fredericksburg’s German past. They were used by farming families over the weekend to visit the town for supplies and attend church together. Lavendel Resort’s two-story 1890s limestone block Sunday House is one of the original houses built by a German immigrant. In keeping with tradition, it is available for families to rent for their very own getaway.
