from Madeliza

Last month, month Cassandra and I had the opportunity to tour the A. Smith Bowman Distillery, conveniently located about 11 miles from Stevenson Ridge. I will have to say that this is one must-see hidden gem in the Fredericksburg area.

Enter the Dragonfly

from Cassandra

As a wedding coordinator, most of my job consists of interacting with clients and our couples on a day-to-day basis. The “art of gathering” is something all of the coordinators have majored in, and we love being surrounded by people.

It’s a Winter Wonderland!

From Madeliza

I have been working here at Stevenson for almost a year, and I have to say that when the property is covered in snow it is absolutely stunning! As soon as most of the snow started to settle, I had to walk out on the property and take a photo because it looks like a scene out of a fairy tale.

We have guests who booked the cabins just to enjoy the full “winter cabin feel.” All of …

Dinner for two, please!

Baked Brie Bebe

from Cassandra

I want to take a moment to blog about more of our amazing food here at Stevenson Ridge (as if I don’t give our chefs enough credit)!

I am always in awe of the eclectic menu items our chefs create from event to event.

At one of our recent annual corporate events, Stevenson Ridge’s dynamic duo in the kitchen, a.k.a. Anthony and Moe, incorporated mini baked brie topped with a cranberry chutney into their ever-so-decorated antipasto displays. Taken …
