About the Inn

Bed & Breakfast

This restored, turn of the century inn, dates back to 1884. At one time The Babcock House was the boyhood home of nationally known author, Dr. Havilah Babcock. Curious about the Babcocks and the Civil War? Click here!

    My husband and I just wanted to get away and so glad we stayed at The Babcock House B&B in Appomattox Jan 1-3. We had a wonderful time. House was extremely nice and clean. The owners were the best. We had such a good time that we are bringing 3 other couples in Feb. Can’t wait!!

    1. Talia says:

      I’m so excited you made plans to return so soon…can’t wait to met your friends!

  6. Ken Paulsen says:

    Can non guests partake in the evening meal and, if so, are reservations required?

    1. Talia says:

      Absolutely, our restaurant is open to the public Wed-Sat 4-8 for dinner and Sundays 11-3 for brunch. We welcome reservations, but they are not necessarily required. We do often fill up on weekends, especially when there are special events going on in town like festivals and theater productions, so those are good times to call ahead.

    What a wonderful experience! My wife and I traveled to the Appomattox area for birthday/anniversary and found the perfect place to stay. Talia and Charles are great hosts and made us feel right at home. The room was clean and spacious and had everything that we needed. The meals were excellent from breakfast to dinner. Very good location to visit Appomattox, Lynchburg, and the D-Day memorial in Bedford. Will try and make it back during the fall. Thanks again.

  8. Jean Sloss says:

    My husband and I stayed at Babcock House while visiting the areas historical sites. Our room was very comfortable, the food cooked by Charles was simply amazing and Talia’s hospitality was very warm and real. This is a one of a kind inn! Thank you, we hope to be back someday.
