RIVERSIDE DINNER THEATER.
The Schooler House and Riverside Dinner Theater have joined together to offer special rates for our guests who are staying with us. The prices are extremely reasonable, particularly for the dinner show. If you are interested in attending one of the delightful shows at the Riverside while visiting, please be sure to contact me to obtain the codes you will need to receive this special discount. The Riverside provides wonderful entertainment in our community!
We're pleased to let you know that we have added small sofa beds to each room for those who may need a single bed during their visit. The mattress is extremely comfortable and the love seats are really cute. We've added these particularly for parents who are visiting UMW with their teenage children. I hope you enjoy the addition to the rooms; we're very happy to make this change.

They spent 2 years compiling information of local accounts and historical artifacts. This DVD has so much information for Civil War buffs who are interested in more than just the battle.

OUR GUESTS HAVE TALENT!
A recent guest to The Schooler House Bed & Breakfast, Jack Clarfelt and his wife, Sandra, from England, enjoyed 5 nights in Fredericksburg. Every afternoon, Jack and Sandra would relax in the back yard and on the front porch. This is a sketch and watercolor that Jack did one afternoon. Obviously, Jack has talent!
