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

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
