Lovely Historic Home

3.6 on June 29, 2017

We arrived a bit early, but were met graciously. The decor was stunning with many real antiques. The location was great for visiting Appomatix Court House. The owners were very friendly.


Great end to our 5th Anniversary weekend

Longacre--a True Treasure

5 on August 19, 2010

It's difficult to be concise about Longacre: there is so much to rave about. In addition to being a beautiful Tudor-style home with a lovely garden and grounds, it's conveniently located in the heart of beautiful Appomattox, where there are a great many attractions, not the least of which is the site famous for bringing the Civil war to an end and beginning the process of re-uniting our country. Dana Mayberry and her mom, Renee, have created a comfortable, friendly atmosphere in a truly beautiful place, regardless of which room you stay. For many reasons, and all of them the right reasons, put Longacre at the top of your list and enjoy Dana and Renee's hospitality and accommodations.


A great time!

We had a very nice stay at Longacre. The innkeepers were very friendly and full of information. The breakfast was great as well. The reason for only giving "service" three was because we needed a bucket of ice and there was no one to get it for us and the kitchen was locked.

Innkeeper Response
We are so happy that you had a great stay..we are sorry that you were unable to get a bucket of ice but we always have our cell number in the rooms and in the den at the house phone so that we can be reached at any time should anything at all be needed..we always tell the guest this at check in , we always keep the kitchen and private quarters locked but are always available by phone if you can not find us right away...

Southern Hospitality

4.6 on September 05, 2009

The Longacre B&B is a beautiful turn-of-the-century home! It was a convenient location for visiting the historical Appomattox Courthouse village where General Lee surrendered. The house and the grounds have been well-maintained by the proprietor and her family. The warm welcome and generous, hospitable service we received while there could not have been better.
