I wish TripAdvisor would let you rate halves; if I could, I would rate this a 3.5/5. Here is why: My wife and I came down here for a quick weekend getaway. Lynchburg is close to a few really cool historical and natural sights, so it made sense. When we arrived, we were greeted warmly by the proprietor and she... More

My husband and I spent two days in this lovely inn. The host and hostess, Phil and Ann, were very welcoming. Breakfasts were delicious and beautifully prepared. Our suite, Blue Spruce, was very comfortable. The location was very convenient to downtown Lynchburg. Would stay there again.

Was looking for a get away from the DC Metro area and we scored a great one. Was a bit hesitant because of price in the area but within 15 min we were sitting in bath robes in the enclosed porch enjoying our stay. The owners were very accommodating and friendly wanting us to get the most out of Lynchburg... More

This was our first experience at a B&B and it couldn't have been a better experience! Ann and Phil are wonderful hosts...breakfasts were very good and I appreciated them asking if we had any dietary needs. We stayed in the Dogwood room and it was lovely. The entire house was beautiful. Our conversations with Ann and Phil were very enjoyable,... More

Breakfasts as good a you are going to get anywhere and really wonderful hosts. Very convenient location and a good value. We'd pay more though for some updating. Mattress really needed replacement and much appears as though it was done 15+ year ago and has not been touched since then.

Beautiful house with lots of antiques. Ann and Phil are quite the hosts. Friendly, courteous and ever helpful. This is the kind of place intended for couples to have a celebration. But the place is really quiet, breakfasts are plentiful and varied and it is within walking distance of the city's attractions.

The Federal Crest Inn B&B is a grand old house with lots of historical attributes. The room with the four-poster bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was delightful with lots of fruit and home-made items. We loved "Lerch," the butler forever standing at the front door with welcome mints. Off street parking is a plus. Ann and Phil are great friendly... More
