This was an immaculately kept home. We had good wireless internet and warming gas fireplaces in both rooms. Nicely decorated with beautiful antiques. Very nice hosts and good breakfast. My only complaint was just the "stuff" all over--dried and fake arrangements, and too many collections covering walls and tables. This would especially be a nice place for a family gathering,...

The well preserved Federal style house was built in the early 20th century and maintains its stately and gracious elegance. Anne Ripley is a warm hostess with a great decorative talent. Phil Ripley is also a gracious host and articulate booster of Lynchburg. We only stayed one night but really enjoyed the decor and the hosts. Breakfast was beautifully presented... More

This Inn was the largest of 5 we visited during our week-long road trip. The breakfast was by far the best - delicious eggs benedict and we were asked if we wanted one egg or two, and how we wanted it cooked. A beautiful spray of flowers on the yogurt and fruit tray was a nice touch. Substitute innkeepers did... More

The owners are an amazing couple who know all the history of the town and area. Offer great ideas for local restaurants and easy directions around town. The rooms are beautiful with fireplaces and private baths, the breakfast is the best I have experienced at an Inn. The personal touches make it outstanding. There is even a gift shop with... More

We stayed at Federal Crest Inn for 3 nights in April, 2015. We stayed in the Dogwood Room which was spacious and immaculate. Our hosts Ann and Phil were very friendly and helpful. Ann is a terrific cook and her breakfasts were delicious! We were visiting Appomattox Courthouse and Five Corners, an easy half hour drive. Bring your walking shoes-... More

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
