I have stayed multiple times at the Babcock House while visiting family, and I always enjoy my stay. Talia and Charles are great hosts. Charles is a creative chef who uses local and very fresh ingredients in his dining offerings. I highly recommend this establishment.

I really enjoyed my stay - thanks for the southern hospitality and food. Charles makes an amazing Shepard's pie. Thank you Talia for the delicious breakfast dishes. Close to Appomattox Court House. Very cozy atmosphere. Loved the complimentary beverages outside the room.
