Superb Bed and Breakfast. The restaurant is the best in the area that I have found and reasonably priced for the superb food that is served. Staff is excellent. A great location from which to visit the National Park at Appomattox or the colleges--Longwood, Hampden-Sydney, and others in the area.
I thoroughly enjoyed staying at The Babcock House! Not only is the breakfast amazing, but they have a restaurant downstairs with food you will love! Sitting on the balcony upstairs was a relaxing treat after a busy day. The service was great and I will definitely stay here again!
My husband and I were on our way to Chesapeake, VA and I wanted to stop at Appomattox to see the Civil War history. The Babcock House was the perfect place to stay. Clean rooms and bathroom, wonderful food, great innkeepers and chef. We would highly recommend Babcock House to anyone passing through!
Our second stay was as marvelous as the first one. We stayed in the same well-appointed period room and enjoyed the perfect dinner and a farm fresh, homemade breakfast before traveling on. Charles and Talia were warm and charming hosts, as was their young son, Remi. Erica was the finest server we have had. We will be back, and, hopefully, for many more stays. - Jim & Janelle Clinkenbeard, Ft. Thomas, KY
We had a lovely two nights at the Carriage House Inn. Perfectly located (close enough to walk to town over the bridge) and perfectly appointed (fell in love with the amazing carpets!) Kathy and Mike were very gracious with directions, maps and providing great comforts including water in the room, mints and snacks outside the door and bathroom amenities. Breakfast was delicious - multiple courses all delightful....I especially liked the watermelon salad. Highly recommend a few nights at the Carriage House!
My sister and I stayed in the Carriage House suite at the Inn - spacious bedroom, living room area, and kitchen. Our hosts Kathy and Mike were very accommodating, and we enjoyed not only the wonderfully delicious breakfasts but the great conversation as well. It felt like a home away from home with that added great service you love to experience on your vacation.
This was my first time at a bed and breakfast. I was traveling solo on an overnight getaway. My room at the Babcock house was cozy, comfortable and quiet. The on sight dining was exceptional. Do not pass up the bread pudding for dessert, it may be the best I have ever eaten.
It was the first BnB for my wife and I and we're both very happy to have chosen Mike and Kathy to be our hosts. The house has a rustic charm to it that clearly showcased the owners' passion for preserving the rich history of the building while bringing it up to date on modern amenities like wifi and central air. It is nestled atop Daniel's Hill in historic Lynchburg and downtown is just a walk away. The 4-course breakfast was a good balance of fresh and savory. We stayed in the Mary Watts room it was perfect for our weekend getaway. Should we be in the area again, we'd love a pit stop at the Carriage House!
I was at Carriage House Inn B&B for a little over a week and it was outstanding in every way. Mike and Kathy go out of their way to make guests feel welcomed. The rooms are spotless, the sheets are amazing, and the breakfast is out of this world delicious! If you are in Lynchburg, stay here, you won't regret it!
My husband and I recently stayed at the Carriage House Inn over Columbus Day Weekend and had a wonderful stay. Our room was in the actual Carriage House which shares a parlor and kitchenette with another room. Accommodations were very spacious, clean, and tastefully decorated. The owners are really great. They contacted us in advance and went out of their way to prepare information and insights about the local area and specific activities we were interested in. The breakfast was fantastic with unique recipes you can find on the Inn's website. Great visit. We would definitely stay at this B&B again!
From the moment we arrived, Kathy and Mike offered a gracious style and warmth that consistently impressed up throughout our weekend stay. Flexible, engaging, thoughtful, and supportive, they modeled the style of innkeeper in an extraordinary fashion. Ask to see the storybook of the restoration. If you are a history or architecture buff, it will delight you and is just one of the many reasons the Carriage House exceeds expectations. Loved the group breakfast--guaranteed both a tasty and intellectually interesting start to the day!
Our recent 7-night stay at the Carriage House Inn B&B was a first-rate experience. We came to the Lynchburg area to experience the 150th anniversary of the end of the Civil War at the nearby National Historical Park at Appomattox Court House and do some genealogy research in Chatham. The hosts, Kathy and Mike, were welcoming, and informative about the area. Their dedication to restoring the house has made it a jewel with a rich past history. The breakfasts were a real treat, not only presented beautifully, but delicious also. I would definitely recommend The Carriage House Inn B&B as the place to stay if traveling to Lynchburg.

My husband and I stayed at The Carriage House Inn Bed and Breakfast during the week of the Appomattox Sesquicentennial events. I have to say both Kathy and Mike were gracious hosts and their home is exquisite. The four course breakfasts were delicious and they were always available to answer questions about Lynchburg and environs. I will recommend their B&B to anyone traveling to that part of Virginia.
My husband and I arrived late for our reservation, so Mike and Kathy gave us a free upgrade to the Stable Master Suite. It is really a one bedroom apartment with a spacious living room, large bedroom, small kitchenette, and a glorious bathroom. So more about the bathroom; it has a large footed tub and an oversized shower. Both were just wonderful because of their size and cleanliness. The bed was firm and for most people would be very comfortable. We really enjoyed the privacy and space we had when staying in this room. We spent two nights in the Stable Master Suite and then moved to the RT Watts room. We made the change for three major reasons. First, it is the room I initially booked. Second, I really wanted to stay in the mansion because of the historic significance. Third, I have major back issues and the RT Watts room has a Select Comfort bed. The RT Watts room is just lovely with a private bath. The claw foot tub can be used only for showers because of how it had to be plumbed. The bed was great for my back, because I could adjust it to the firmness I needed. I really loved staying in this room, because the bed was good for me and it was in the mansion. The breakfasts were really superb. Even though I have some pretty annoying food restrictions, they were able to make fantastic tasty breakfasts for the both of us. We had a difficult time finishing our breakfasts and found that lunch was really not necessary. Mike and Kathy also have great recommendations for restaurants and activities in the area. We ate at three of the restaurants they recommend, walked and biked the trails, and visited some of the local universities. We had a lovely visit and recommend The Carriage House to anyone who enjoys a fantastic b & b.
What a delight to meet B & B owners Michael and Kathy of The Carriage House Inn. Yes Lynchburg, like so many of our old industrial towns is re-making the face of the downtown. But from the hospitality extended by Kathy & Michael, and the people volunteering and working in Lynchburg's historical sites, shops and restaurants, they demonstrated they are glad you came by for a visit and appreciate your business. We stayed in the Carriage House, next to the main house, for two nights and loved the privacy, yet access to the main house and our walks to downtown. The property, main house, and rooms are clean and comfortable. And your auto sits right next to the house in a old iron gated, fenced property. What can we say? Try it you will enjoy!

We just spent three lovely days at the Carriage House. Both Kathy and Mike were fabulous host and the breakfasts were outstanding. Our family stayed in the Carriage House which was like having your own private suite. The weather was great and the outdoor activities of the hiking and biking trails nearby allows you to enjoy Virginia’s beautiful outdoors. With Civil War sites like Appomattox just a 25 minute drive brings history to your back door. I would highly recommend staying at the Carriage House if you are looking for a 5 Star experience. Clearly, Kathy and Mike know how to run a B&B for their guest. Outstanding!!!!
We found Carriage House by accident while searching the web for a place to spend a quiet weekend on our anniversary. I chose the Inn because I wanted the authentic feel of the original claw foot tub, and porcelain sinks in the 1870's bathroom, as well as the furnishings throughout the home. Mike and Kathy have preserved something special here. They have very lovingly restored this treasure but kept the heart and soul of the era in which it was built. The home was great, but the Inn keepers truly made this an unforgettable experience. they know the history of the home and every detail. The food was not your typical egg and bacon breakfast, and the attentiveness was refreshing. We went in blind...but had the most relaxing and memorable weekend we have had in many years. We will definately return. This may become our yearly anniversary weekend! Sheila D of Roanoke, VA.
