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... More

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.

what truly good fortune to have Phil answer our evening call regarding availability and be welcome by both Phil and Ann minutes later. The "home" is a treasure and they are perfect and warm hosts. We will certainly return in the very near future.

How do you say “beautiful”? The Federal Crest Bed and Breakfast fits this description perfectly. We have stayed at this Bed and Breakfast several times over the past six years. We have visited as a couple and as a family of four. The owners, Phil and Ann, are hospitable to the max. They will welcome you with coffee, cookies and... More

This was the fourth of the B&Bs on our tour of Virginia and the third to get top billing! Ann and Phil made us feel so welcome in their beautiful home and couldn't do enough to help us enjoy our stay in Lynchburg. We can recommended this luxury accommodation wholeheartedly. Both rooms were delightful. There were so many extra little... More

We stayed at the Federal Crest Inn and I couldn't have asked for a better experience. Ann and Phil Ripley are warm and welcoming into their absolutely lovely home. The first level of this stately home has a immediate "wow" factor when you see the central grand staircase with the large landing. Lovely dark wood finishes with glowing fireplaces throughout....
