The innkeepers of The Carriage House exceeded every expectation we could have imagined. Our needs were anticipated and graciously provided. The gourmet breakfasts were exceptional and we relished our conversations with owners Kathy and Mike Bedsworth afterward. The house has been restored as much as humanly possible to the bygone era of the original owners in the 19th century. The... More

I am always amazed when staying at a B&B at the not-so-subtle differences between large hotel chains and B&Bs. This experience was no different for me - excellent quality, charming owners, beautiful furnishings, and excellent food! You would be hard-pressed to find a better place to stay in Lynchburg, VA.

What a perfect bit if serendipity it was for us to come across the site for the Carriage House Inn B&B while searching for the perfect place to elope! My fiancé and I had looked online at hotels, inns, B&Bs and so many possible places in Virginia to stay. We were looking for a beautiful, relaxed setting in which to... More

Mike & Kathy spend 4 YEARS restoring the home to its grandeur and it shows! Each of the huge bedrooms (12 ft. ceilings) has its own (coal burning) fireplace made of beautifully carved wood. Our 4 poster bed was comfortable with a sleep number mattress. Because it was graduation weekend, the rooms were sold out and we all ate breakfast... More

This is a very lovely, historic home worth the trip. House has been painstakingly restored. Beautiful wood & staircase. Our room was enormous as was the bath. Rooms furnished with era-appropriate antiques. Mike & Kathy run a great inn. Yes, Mike, you do everything right! Be sure to relax on the front porch AND by the fishpond. Very tasty breakfast....

Every year my wife and I meet college friends at a B&B to catchup, reminisce, and eat. We found The Carriage House on Trip Advisor and made reservations for last weekend. Kathy and Mike are wonderful hosts. They were welcoming, helped us with choosing a restaurant, and served two great breakfast.

A beautifully restored old mansion with gorgeous furnishings in easy reach of historic downtown Lynchburg. Kathy and Michael went out of their way to accommodate our every need. We stayed for 11 nights with a different four course breakfast every day. We enjoyed the daily bulletins with different chocolates every day and loved relaxing on the wrap around porch. Lovely...

We have been staying at bed and breakfasts for several years and when my son was studying the Civil War we decided to visit Appomattox Courthouse and we stayed at the Carriage House Inn. From the moment you drive up and see the home you know there is something special about the property. The house is spectacular, the rooms spacious,... More

A wonderful location near the central part of Lynchburg Historic area, this B&B will exceed your expectations. Beautifully appointed, large rooms with large bathrooms. Plenty of parking in safe area. We stayed in the Hay Loft and look forward to staying in the main house next time. Our daughter is a student at Liberty U and this property is worth... More

We visited the Carriage House Inn to visit our son who is a freshman at Lynchburg College. The home was spectacular, the breakfasts awesome, hosts friendly and knowledgeable. We enjoyed being able to walk to downtown restaurants and being close to the jogging paths. We will be back to Lynchburg quite a bit over the next 3 1/2 years and... More
