With its turn-of-the-century charm, Babcock House dates back to the 1800s and offers everything you need for coziness, comfort, and relaxation during your Virginia retreat. Babcock House isn’t a luxury hotel; it’s a better, more personal, and truly unique experience that will leave you with warm memories for years to come.
During the holidays, we often focus on what everyone else needs and forget about ourselves! You deserve a stress-free vacation amidst the holiday chaos, whether a relaxing girl’s weekend getaway or a romantic couple’s escape.
When you return home, you’ll be completely relaxed from the stresses of hosting for the holidays or be reset and ready to tackle those conversations with your in-laws and excited children.
By the end of this blog post, you’ll be ready to give yourself the gift of relaxation with a stay at Babcock House and the surrounding charm of small-town Virginia.
Consider our B&B at the top of the list for winter vacation ideas. Here’s why:
1) We offer exceptional dining services onsite so you can dig into incredible food without venturing into the cold. Our dining room offers a warm atmosphere, an elevated menu that fits various needs and preferences, and top-notch service.
Every guest also has the luxury of shuffling a quick few steps down from their room for an included full breakfast every morning. You’ll feel as comfortable as if you’re in your own home, but with better service!
2) We have the coziest rooms for an entire winter wellness experience. Every one of our rooms is unique. They make you feel like you’re stepping back in time, but with all the modern amenities you could ever want or need. Each suite is warm and comfortable, with large beds, private bathrooms, and cable TV.
Book the Annie Laurie room and enjoy a long soak in the clawfoot tub after exploring the winter wonderland of Virginia. Enjoy the accessibility of the Byron Room on the first floor, allowing you to walk or roll right out to breakfast after a relaxing sleep-in, or pop some chilled champagne fresh from the mini-fridge in the Rebecca Room for some romance. Whatever experience you want from your winter getaway, our rooms can provide it.
3) You can stay warm and cozy no matter the hour with our 24-hour tea and coffee bar, conveniently located on both the first and second floor. If you don’t want to leave your room, don’t worry – we offer complimentary delivery service. Every winter vacation needs access to round-the-clock coziness.
4) You have the option to bask in the glow of a warm fire and the fitting atmosphere of an 1800s hearth. No true winter escape is complete without a fireside sitting. Now, imagine a hearth that was around during the Civil War! The fireplace at Babcock House is the quintessential winter cozy space, lending a cheerful, warm atmosphere to an already winter-perfect house.
5) Why not stay warm inside and out? At Babcock House, don’t worry about heading into the cold in search of a bar for a date spot — we have everything you could dream of right here at the B&B, including the perfect atmosphere. Romanticize your evenings sipping refreshing craft beer, exceptionally crafted cocktails (or mocktails!), and local Virginia wine by the fire.
