We arrived at Federal Crest around 4:00 in the afternoon just as the sun was shining through the large beveled windows on the stair landing across from the foyer causing prismatic rainbows to float across the room. What an entry! The whole house was magnificent and well appointed without seeming cluttered. We loved our room, The Blue Spruce, with it's...

We found Ann and Phil to be very hospitable from the moment we made phone inquiries to the point of our departure. We were given guidance in sightseeing and an overview of the history of the house. Breakfast was beautifully presented with local blooming flowers decorating the table and our plates. We appreciated the quiet and our room arrangement with...

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...

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...

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,...

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.
