If you talk to Fredericksburg locals, everyone remembers the Manor House of a different time. Those who have lived in the area for a long time remember the beauty. With its place of honor, it perched on the hill and was a stunner. Others remember the house as it began to fall into disrepair. A boarding house neglected by its occupants, the beauty began to fade. A year ago, the owners contemplated tearing it down. Luckily for us, there was also a different vision.
Countless hours went into the cosmetic restoration on this majestic building. Floors were scraped, sanded, and stained. Drywall was patched, hung, and painted. The entire house was given a facelift, but the goal was to remain authentic to its history. Beams were intentionally left exposed because part of the charm of the Manor House lies beneath its walls.
The age of this home is part of what makes it so amazing. With its original structure dating back to 1785, this house has always been an important part of Fredericksburg history. We needed to make sure that this history was respected when we focused on its future.
Planning the look of the structure itself is only part of our story. Fredericksburg does not need another antique mall. What Fredericksburg does need is a destination shop where no matter your style or taste, you can find something you can’t live without. This was the vision for Deep Creek Vintage. Each vendor has been handpicked to help this vision. From shabby chic to traditional to a little quirky, they each have distinct styles and tastes. Vendors will have their own rooms to display these styles. Each room you enter will be different, but wonderful. They have formed a team, and are quickly putting together their areas in a way we know you will just love! We are sure that you will find your personal favorites, but we guarantee that each will speak to you.
Now we must prepare for the day when the doors of the Manor House will once again be open to the public. We are so excited to embark on this journey! Our soft opening is right around the corner, and we could not be more thrilled to share our vision of Deep Creek Vintage.
