Charles Bass House

4.0 on September 07, 2013

Stayed one night, first time at a Bed and Breakfast. It was during the weekday, so there was no hot breakfast, but we had the best continental breakfast we'd ever had! We really enjoyed it!


Amazing house and host!

John was so welcoming and friendly. He was the perfect B&B host- he made us feel welcome but he didn't push himself on us too much or infringe on our privacy. The house is gorgeous and the room was clean and beautiful. The price was so reasonable. Definitely staying here again if we ever find ourselves in the South Boston area!


The BEST!!!!!!

5 on August 05, 2013

You can tell that John takes pride in his establishment and has a passion for detail. The heavenly bed, soft music, candles inside and out, along with the perfect temperature of the hot tub, ensured that I would experience the best night of rest and relaxation. Waking up the the smell of breakfast cooking and a gracious host made it hard for me to leave. This place is a must if you are in the area. If not even in the area, it is worth the trip if you are looking for the perfect place of peace. Thanks John!!!!!


Wonderful B&B

Review by an Inside-outsider

I stayed at the Charles Bass House B&B from June 6-12, 2013. I live in IL, but I grew up in Halifax County. I wanted an alternative to a standard hotel, so I was delighted to find that this home had been converted to a B&B. I cannot rave enough about it. The home itself is absolutely magnificent. It has been beautifully restored and it is so elegant and comfortable. I stayed in the guest suite on the main floor, which has a large bedroom, a private bath and a private sitting room with TV. It is right in the heart of South Boston, but it is still quiet and you can sit outside without being bothered by too much noise. This is only minutes from the dining/shopping areas in downtown South Boston and Town of Halifax. Check out The Prizery to see if there are any concerts or Little Theatre productions while you are in town. It is also very close to several of the best restaurants in the area. As for amenities: I did not try the hot tub while I was there, but it is on a sheltered deck and you could enjoy it year-round because the weather is moderate even in the winter. The outside deck on the back of the house is idyllic. There is ample seating and a nice patio set with an umbrella for eating or reading outside. There is also off-street parking which was very convenient. Mr. Fulton is a gracious host and an excellent cook, so make sure you are hungry for breakfast! I think I gained about 5lbs during my stay. Fresh fruit every day, muffins and scones on weekdays, and freshly cooked bacon & eggs on the weekend. Oh, and great music and conversation! If you can't tell, I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and I cannot recommend it highly enough. I will most definitely call him first next time I go back for a visit. I hope this review will convince you to give it a try, or if you are local, to recommend it to family and friends. And if you do stay there, be sure you say hello to his dog, Raisin!


Great weekend getaway!

I had an awesome experience staying at Charles Bass B&B. I went for a weekend getaway for simple rest and relaxation and this was the place to go! John Fulton was the perfect host making sure that I was comfortable. I will definitely return for another r&r weekend! Larry Cline


Wonderful B&B

We had a most enjoyable stay at Charles Bass House B&B. We felt very welcomed from the moment we arrived! Our room, which was a suite was so lovely , decorated so nicely. Our breakfast was so delicious, homemade blueberry pancakes along with other breakfast foods. We would recommend this B&B to anyone traveling in that area.


Great Bed and Breakfast

Our stay at the Charles Bass House was enjoyable in every way possible. The house was lovely, the bed comfortable, the bath spotless , the drinks upon arrival fantastic, the orange/cinnamon french toast and fresh fruit breakfast yummy, and the hot tub relaxing! We will definately return again and again! All this for $100.00?????????????? Crazy Talk! lol
