Inn Policies

Reservations can be made by calling the inn between 8:00 am and 8:00 pm at 434-352-7532 or emailing us at any time at  We ask for a credit card number in order to hold the room.  A 72 hour notice of cancellation is required to avoid a charge on your card.

All rooms are priced for double occupancy.  Some of our rooms can accommodate more than two people for a charge of $20/person per night.

Payment is due upon departure. A 10.3% lodging tax is added to all room totals. Cash, traveler’s checks, Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express are accepted.

Due to restaurant hours, we ask that you check-in between 2:00 pm and 5:00 pm if possible.  Late check-ins can be accommodated if we know about them ahead of time.  Early check-ins are allowed depending on if rooms are ready or not.

Please be ready to check-out by 11:00am to allow adequate time to prepare for incoming guests. You may store your luggage with us if you would like to spend the day touring Appomattox.

Breakfast is served from 8:00am to 9:00am. Please notify us with any special dietary needs or restrictions you may have and we will do our best to accommodate.

Due to the age and historic value of our property, smoking is not permitted inside the inn.  There are areas on all our porches for smoking.

Well behaved children are welcome to enjoy our historic inn.

We cannot permit guests’ pets in consideration of other inn guests. If you are traveling with your pets, please call us for a list of local boarding kennels.

Complimentary off-street parking is provided for guests of The Babcock House.
