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....

The Federal Crest Inn provided us a lovely weekend away. It is a charming home built in the early 1900's. The owners have done extensive renovation to update the internal systems (heating, A/C, etc.) and decorated the home with furnishings that complement the elegant but relaxed style. The owners are gracious hosts, making everyone feel right at home and ensuring... More

We loved our stay at Federal Crest Inn. Ann, Phil, and Jackie were wonderful hosts. The house was immaculate. Breakfast was outstanding. We look forward to coming back. This was our first B and B experience. They have truly set the standard.

Just to let you know that I recently stayed at the Federal Crest Inn B & B (in the Magnolia Suite) for two nights. It is a beautiful, 103-year old house with updated modern facilities, but still retained the classic "bones" of the house, including the old push-button light switches on the walls which I remember in my grandmother's house....

This was a most wonderful experience when we stayed at the Federal Crest Inn. Ann and Phil are a unique couple with the ability to make you feel that they are welcoming old friends! The rooms are charming and welcoming (as are the hosts) and so helpful. The food is excellent and the entire atmosphere is warm and caring. Phil... More

Book this now - you won't be disappointed! The Inn is clean and offers a lot of comfort - and is just a few blocks from historical downtown and the river. The owners are generous and welcoming - and very helpful when it comes to planning your time if you need advice. You will learn a lot of history as... More

Phil and Ann were very friendly and welcoming. We were celebrating our 49th anniversary and immediately upon meeting Ann when we arrived, we felt as if we had known her for a long time. We love staying at B & B's and this was no exception! The rooms were beautiful and well cared for. Phil and Ann have done a... More

If you don't have a favorite cousin or aunt living in Lynchburg, you have not stayed at the Federal Crest Inn. Comfortable sums it up. Ann & Phil are very gracious hosts (and good cooks). Their home is comfortable and charming. The rooms are comfortable, charming and quiet. Looking out the window I noticed the 3 story dogwood tree -... More

We don't normally rave over B&Bs but feel we need to really tell others about Federal Crest! Between Phils' expertise about the attractions concerning the civil war and Anns' awesome gift of hospitality, Federal Crest satisfied all of our criteria for Bed And Breakfasts! Our room was very comfortable, the breakfasts were amazing, and we left Lynchburg feeling as though... More

I was struck by the sheer beauty and detail that was put into this beautiful Bed & Breakfast. Our hosts Phil and Ann Ripley went all out to ensure that we had everything that we needed and we dined for breakfast as if we were royalty. Thank you for remembering all of the details and making us feel like family!... More
