Immaculate, Friendly, Warm, Relaxing Environment. Stayed here with my daughter on a college visit-proved a welcomed retreat after a 9 hour drive; the Breakfast was outstanding and provided the much needed fuel for a full day of Campus activities. The ambience of the room was a blessing- loved the fireplace & hot shower! Minutes away from campus- the Innkeepers were... More

We stayed one night at this beautiful B&B, wish we could have stayed longer. The hosts, Ann and Phil were very welcoming and the conversation was wonderful. We enjoyed looking at Ann's paintings and guessing their themes. The historic downtown area was very close and we found a wonderful restaurant for dinner. This B&B also has its own butler who...

What a wonderful Inn tucked away in Lynchburg, VA. Ann and Phil were extremely attentive to every detail, exceeding expectations! The Inn is beautifully decorated and offers multiple suites. Ann also hand paints goblets for each couple who order the romance package.

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at the Federal Crest Inn for four days while in town for schooling. A beautiful house in a historic neighborhood. It snowed while we were there and the house looked like the front of a Christmas card, it was breathe taking! Even though we were in in town for schooling with... More

The Federal Crest Inn is a class act. The décor and ambiance give it a luxurious feel but the atmosphere is warm and welcoming. Ann and Phil are wonderful hosts and the location in downtown Lynchburg offers a wide variety of dining, touring, and shopping opportunities. Our room was plush in it's comfortable bedding, wing back chairs, and fireplace. The... More

Ann and Phil are delightful hosts and met all our needs. The Dogwood room where we stayed was my favorite of all those I saw, and the fireplace made it all the more lovely on cold November evenings and morns. Breakfasts were delicious and provided more food than needed. Little touches like brownies and cookies, turn down service with our... More

A beautiful home with kind and welcoming hosts. The owners, Phil and Ann, go out of their way to make your stay comfortable. Our room was clean, quiet and the fireplace added a wonderful ambiance to the room. The breakfast was delicious and filling. The holiday decorations were beautiful and added to the charm of the home. The owners make... More

Lovely, grand old place with great hosts, nice contrast to the plastic palaces (equally good in a different way) we also booked along the trip. Although Phil and Ann were welcoming and very helpful with advice and conversation, they weren't in your face. You pretty much have the house to yourself. Lots to look at.

When in the Lynchburg, VA area look no further than to the Federal Crest Inn Bed and Breakfast. The mansion is full of history. Ann and Phil, the owners will guide you to cherished gems of local history and dining and sites you may not think of. The breakfast they give you is excellent. They are great hosts. You will...

If you're coming to Lynchburg, Federal Crest is a great place to stay. The house is beautiful. The woodwork and furnishings are fantastic. Ann and Phil are great hosts and they do a great breakfast. The inn is convenient to the downtown area, but the drive to other parts of Lynchburg is not bad. Highly recommended.
