My wife and I celebrated our wedding anniversary at the Babcock Inn. The restaurant staff was friendly, efficient and professional. Our meal was outstanding... From the homemade salad dressings to the desserts (the peanut butter pie was so good and everything in between, the quality of the food and service left nothing to be desired. The dining room was very...

We greatly enjoyed our stay at the lovely Babcock House! Everything about this B&B is conducive to relaxation and enjoyment. The Old Southern/Victorian decor with amazing antiques - period furniture, paintings, crocheted bedspreads, original wood floors, high ceilings - give the traveler a wonderful journey back in time. Beauty and good taste appear round every corner, in the parlor, in...

I stayed two nights at this Bed and breakfast. The owners and staff were warm and welcoming. The non stuffy environment was refreshing and promoted a relaxed feel. They were also willing to work around my dietary needs. In addition, the chef used a lot of in house grown or local grown food for his dishes, resulting in a fresh...

Fantastic B & B in Appomattox. Good sized room and bathroom, with great decor and charm. The food at the attached Restaraunt is even better than expected, to include a wonderful breakfast that is available. The owners are incredibly friendly as well. The establishment is within walking distance of the downtown Main Street businesses, and a short drive to historical...

My mother and I have never stayed in a bed and breakfast before-we've always been intimidated by them. We were passing through to visit the Appomattox Court House and all hotel rooms were booked so we decided to stay here and are god we did! The room was spacious and comfortable, and the restaurant had delicious food as well. Breakfast...

Mrs. D and I Dined here 6/1/16. We had read the reviews - mostly the B&B and lunch and everything we read was positive. We were early for dinner (start serving at 5) so we enjoyed the AC and had gin & tonic s- at $4 per it was a bargain. Mrs. D had Meatloaf wrapped in bacon ($14). It...

Having never been to Appomattox Court House we decided to to make a little trip out of a visit and spend two nights at a local B&B. We chose the Babcock House B&B, GOOD choice! We were greeted by Remington ("Remi") and Debbie and showed to our room the Annie Laurie room. We then took off for Appomattox Court House....

We stayed in the Annie Laurie room--private bath with claw foot tub and shower (all rooms have private baths). Comfortable and charming with a 4 poster bed and antique furniture. Talia brought up a tray so I could make coffee in the early morning (I'm a very early riser), but she did offer to have coffee out downstairs for me...

I enjoy either lunch or dinner there at least twice each month. The service is good, the food is excellent and I especially enjoy the nightly specials. I suggest the shrimp and grits. oh, and the catfish....don't forget about the duck.....mmmm, and the BBQ plate.

I would highly recommend dining and sleeping at the Babcock House. We were there in December of 2015 and had a great experience. The food is delicious and because of that reservations are highly encouraged. We needed to leave a little early for an evening event so they permitted us to order our dinner selection early so we could leave...
