This is the place to stay to celebrate, reconnect, relax and enjoy. The Watts House has been lovingly restored to its original grandeur by the innkeepers from 2003-2007. After the Civil War RT Watts, a hardware store owner built his home in what is now the historic district known as Daniels Hill. Today, guests can enjoy the same bath tubs, a couple of the same bathroom sinks, many of the original light fixtures, mantels, moldings and much more that were installed when the home was built for RT and his family. Very little has been changed in this home due to the nature of its construction, i.e., both the interior and exterior walls are three courses of brick thick. This is why when you visit The Carriage House Inn you experience the past as if it was yesterday.
Enjoy this oversized room with a king-sized bed with a Select Comfort mattress. There is a sitting area, desk, a window seat, fireplace (coal burning), sunken bathroom with the original tub, sink and cabinets from the late 1800's. Wireless internet service is available to all guests. This is the largest guest room in the main house. The alarm clock has an IPod docking station.
Emma's Room features an iron queen-sized bed, coal burning fireplace (decorative), antique light fixtures, antique wardrobe, dresser & end tables. This room has a unique tub (lovers tub) which is extra deep, extra long and the faucet is in the middle of the tub so that two people can enjoy bathing. The original bathroom sink and cabinets are still in use. The alarm clock has an IPod docking station.
Mary's Room features a queen-sized sleigh bed. There is a charming window seat overlooking the newly restored 1800's brick street. A coal burning fireplace (decorative) is in the room. This room can be booked with the Stephen Watts Room and would share a bath otherwise the bath is a private bath (we don't book the Stephen Watts Room when this room is booked unless it is to a family member/traveling companion.) This room also adjoins the RT Watts Room should you need a suite or are traveling together.

We have been staying at bed and breakfasts for several years and when my son was studying the Civil War we decided to visit Appomattox Courthouse and we stayed at the Carriage House Inn. From the moment you drive up and see the home you know there is something special about the property. The house is spectacular, the rooms spacious, the hosts wonderful and the breakfasts are the best we have ever had. We especially liked that during the extensive renovations great care was taken to keep original elements of the house. Don't make the same mistake we made and stay for just a weekend. There is so much to see and do in the area you could easily spend several more days there.

We visited Lynchburg to visit our son at Lynchburg College. The B & B was spectacular, the food was awesome, the rooms comfortable and we loved being able to walk to downtown and the jogging paths. Our son is a freshman and we will be staying at the Carriage House Inn every time we visit him. On our next trip we will plan on spending a couple of extra days because there is so much to see and do in the area. Monica and Steve

What a great find! The owners made sure every aspect of our long weekend went off without a hitch. We could not be happier with the service and attention to detail throughout our stay. Highly recommended for a long weekend away from it all.

Buying and restoring an old house had always been a life long goal & when we found this house we jumped at the opportunity to do so. Almost 5 years later we opened the house as a Bed and Breakfast so that we could share this beautiful home with others. While there will always be projects around the house & grounds, Kathy keeps busy with her stained & fused glass and Mike is an avid photographer.
