A great experience
We loved Babcock House. Hosts, Talia and Charles, were charming and the other guests were interesting and nice to chat with. The food was amazing--Charles really knows how cook first-rate gourmet food. My husband and I explored the National Park at Appomattox Courthouse. Afterwards, coming back to Babcock House with it's ancient trees and old-fashioned interiors the life of that town during the war became more accessible.

Way above average: clean, comfortable and friendly
This b&b was great. Talia and her staff were exceptionally pleasant. The room, with private bathroom, was very clean and comfortable. And the food in their restaurant was superior. I would highly recommend this inn to anyone considering staying in the Appomattox area.

The Babcock House exceeded my expectations. The room and amenities were top shelf. The breakfast was delicious and healthy each day. The dinners were up there with any other exclusive city restaurant. It appeared that the chef used a variety of cooking techniques and ingredients to create his dinners. This bed and breakfast is one of the best I have stayed at.

Lovely stay Appomattox
This is a lovely bed and breakfast. Comfortable room and well appointed. We enjoyed a very good dinner in the restaurant there—one of the best meals we have had on our 3 week road trip.

Love staying in this historic and lovely Bed and Breakfast! The owners are gracious and so sweet. The breakfast was flavorful and made to order. We also had dinner in their restaurant. The chef is excellent and his food was outstanding! The value for staying and enjoying their meals was reasonable. I will return to this lovely historic inn.
