Dined at this establishment on Friday, Jan. 29. Very impressed with Chef Charles Clusman's cluinary talents.The new owers and innkeepers are doing a great job for this small community. As local residents we will continue to support the new owners and their continued efforts to provide quality food and lodging for Appomattox. BRAVO!!!!!

Significant period home. Quite well done. We had a suite of rooms and this was delightful. We really enjoyed the fireplace warmed room at night. Our bed was warm and firm; it was clothed with pretty pale greens and fine lace covers. Our breakfasts were always well served and well prepared. This establishment offers a restaurant as well. We experienced...

My wife and I thoroughly our stay at the Babcock House. Nice location-- quiet and close to historical sites. Charles and family had only been running the B&B for a few days (new owners). But the service we received-- it seemed they were veterans of the hospitality business. We also chose to "eat in" at the Babcock. Very nice atmosphere....

I have stayed here twice. Loved it! Love the owners! Food was wonderful and rooms were charming. I would go back in a heartbeat. Relaxing, southern comfort reminiscent of days long gone. My husband said the steak he ate here was the best he has ever eaten. It has been several years since my last visit but I bet it...

We travel a lot and are tired of hotels! The Babcock House gave us a nice place to stay, plus a tasty breakfast. The owner/manager Shiela added a touch of whimsy to our visit. Comfortable bed, quaint decorations, and a great collection of historical photographs made this a special place to stay.

This charming and well located B & B is the Gold Standard that all other establishments strive to emulate and mostly fail. The rooms are done in a tasteful and historic decor. The bed in the room that we stayed in (The Annie Laurie) is firm and provided a most comfortable. sleep. We had both dinner and breakfast and both...

I can't speak to the quality of the inn, but I have eaten at its restaurant. The decor is simple and charming with a friendly yellow in the dining area with prints of Civil War history on the walls. Antiques adorn the entry hall. The menu is simple with each item named after a Civil War figure. I enjoyed a...

We used a gift certificate from our son for the Bradley Suite for one night while visiting Appomattox. It was a lovely stay. We enjoyed reading about the history of the home and the family's involvement in the Civil War in material in our room. When we arrived we were keys to our room and the front door and told...

My wife and six friends stayed this weekend at the Babcock for a most beautiful wedding on a good friend's family farm. While the wedding was absolute wonderful, our stay at the Babcock was a disaster. Rather than writing paragraph after paragraph about our experience, let me say that the rooms and beds were totally unacceptable (2 people left after...

The food was wonderful, both dinner and breakfast. My husband and I felt very comfortable in our room although our friends, who had a suite found that the sofa bed in the second room was very uncomfortable. The owners say they will change it. I very much appreciated the book that was left in the upstairs hall that had to...
