Babcock House Bed & Breakfast: A Historic Haven of Comfort and Culinary Delights

The Babcock House Experience

The Babcock House Bed & Breakfast

Welcome to the Babcock House Bed & Breakfast We never greet guests without first introducing ourselves, so let me start my warm welcome with just that – my name is Talia, and I am one of the owners of the Babcock House Bed & Breakfast, located in Appomattox, Central Virginia. I want to give you the insider scoop on your expectations when staying with us.

The History of The Babcock House

Dating all the way back to 1884, just after the civil war, the Babcock House is a turn-of-the-century inn thought to be built by Samual Patterson Coleman, Jr, previously owned by the Abbitt family before being bought by H.C. Babcock in 1908. Joining a long list of historic hotels, it was converted into a bed & breakfast in 1996 and has remained ever since. Featuring five rooms and one suite, the Babcock house is beautifully furnished, with books and antiques offering a nostalgic atmosphere that will leave you reminiscing. But don’t worry, our technology isn’t antique! We’ve made sure to outfit each room with cable, free wifi, and central heat and air to guarantee your comfort. The Babcock house remains a staple fixture in the beautiful historic town of Appomattox, which we are proud to call our home. The Inn has become a central element of the community, utilizing the surrounding local businesses and vendors to curate a unique and thoughtful experience built for people who appreciate community-built businesses. Since its humble beginnings as a family dwelling under Babcock ownership, we have worked to continue to make the accommodations of the Babcock House feel like a home-away-from-home for our guests. We have dedicated our lives to preserving the familial connection within the walls of this historic Inn, and we hope to always offer a place of peace and comfort for those seeking to stay with us.

Home Away From Home Cooking

Farm-to-Table Meals Prepared With Care The Babcock house isn’t just a place to rest your head – it’s also a place to fill your stomach with delicious, home-cooked meals. As a mother, I know the importance of food made with love, and I want to share it with you! We offer a full breakfast each morning, brimming with fresh fruit, the chef’s entree, delicious juice, and steaming coffee, tea, or cocoa. We source only the best fare, ensuring each dish and drink is prepared and brewed with the help of Appomattox locals. My personal favorites are the homemade desserts and Virginia wines and beers offered at our on-site restaurant – have a look at our Bar Selections to get familiar with all of our Babcocktails, wine, and beer.

Your Relaxation is Our #1 Priority

Quality Comfort; Family Atmosphere We relocated to Appomattox from Hagerstown, MD, to become the Babcock House Innkeepers, and it was the best decision we ever made. Our family includes me (Talia), my wonderful husband, Charles, and our two beautiful children, Remington and Euan. Both Charles and I realized that our unique talents for cooking and hospitality weren’t being utilized at our previous jobs, so we left to tend to the Babcock House and raise our children in a town that values community and complete connection above all else. Together, we have made a home out of the Babcock House and the community surrounding it, and we want our guests to be welcomed into this community as well. We strive to provide the best service possible for our guests, and our dedication to achieving excellence is what makes the Babcock House so special. We want each and every one of our guests to leave our inn feeling like a part of our family, and we do this by following our own list of Innkeepers’ Values.
