My husband surprised me with a wonderful trip to South Boston, VA to continue the celebration of a milestone birthday for me. When we arrived John greeted us and welcomed us to his home. The Charles Bass House is just beautiful, full of character and charm. Our accommodations were awesome. We stayed in the downstairs suite. John is a gracious...

Charles Bass House is a beautiful inn. Very comfortable accommodations. John was a great host and very helpful in suggesting local points of interest. And a great breakfast to start the day! Definitely a travel destination whenever I am in Virginia.

My husband and I stayed this past weekend to visit family, and Charles Bass House was just what we needed! The touches of colonial charm were visible throughout the home, and I got the best sleep I've had in a VERY long time. John was so gracious and courteous, and he makes a great breakfast! We will definitely be staying...

John was so hospitable and really went out of his way to make our stay as pleasant as possible. Great location central in South Boston. Awesome breakfast. He was sensitive to dietary restrictions as well. A++

John the host is very pleasant, conversational when you want and not when you don't. Rooms are very clean as I said rooms. We were in the upstairs room, I had a fall ended up with stitches and John moved us to the downstairs suite for my convenience. Breakfasts were really good, and snacks are readily available. I would highly...

We recently spent the night at Charles Bass House, Bed & Breakfast in South Boston, VA. This was our first experience at a B&B. John Fulton, greeted us as family which was much more personable then a hotel clerk that we were accustomed to. John was a great host and made us feel at home. We stayed in the downstairs...

My stay at the Charles Bass House was delightful. John is a gracious and attentive host, and truly makes you feel as though you're a guest in his home. Staying there was like a mini-spa vacation...the hot tub was great after driving, with a glass of wine to enjoy as well, and made for a relaxing evening. John's restaurant suggestion...

I have stayed at the Charles Bass House several times. I recently returned to it and am happy to report that it has continued to remain one of my favorite places. The house is a meticulously maintained historic Victorian home in the historic area along Main Street in South Boston (SoBo) - which is itself a beautiful small city. The...

I agree with the other reviewers, this is a very nice place to stay. We stayed in the suite so my friend and I could have separate beds (the extra bed was a sleep sofa). The rooms were clean, quiet, and comfortable. The house is about 100 years old, and I think it is lovely. There are a couple of...

I enjoyed two trips to the Charles Bass house. It's a beautiful 19 century home surrounded by well manicured lawn's and stately Oaks. Our host, John, bent over backwards to make everything perfect for us. I'm allergic to wheat, and he provided home-baked gluten-free muffins! On the first occasion we stayed downstairs in the suite, with our own bath. On...

“The two room suite on the ground floor is large and likely would be very quiet; we stayed in the second floor room which shares a bath with the owner, but that was just fine with us.”
