Thanks to John for making our quick stay in South Boston such a treat. A comfortable bed, clean bathroom and quiet location made for a good sleep. John accommodated our early morning breakfast with healthy muffins, a fruit cup, juice and coffee. Thanks again for making our trip enjoyable.

Stayed in South Boston while doing some genealogy research in nearby Halifax. Lucky that I happened on to this very nice B&B in the old residential area of South Boston. Clean, quiet and authentically decorated in an early 20th century manner. Host was attentive but not intrusive. Breakfast was very good. You will have a peaceful, relaxing stay here. Two... More

Very good location for our recent quick trip to see a performance at the Prizery in South Boston. The owner was very helpful.

We were looking for a weekend runaway with total relaxation, without a long commute. The Charles Bass House fit the bill in every category. John was the perfect host, with tips of restaurants, activities and must sees in the area. The downstairs suite was awesome, the breakfast table spread with fresh fruit, morning paper, and hot served meals were delightful.... More

I stayed here with my sister and brother-in-law in late April in the lower level, two room suite. One room was a formal bedroom equipped with furniture, including a desk and chair. The other was sort of a "living" room equipped with a sleeper sofa, TV, and table. I slept on the sleeper sofa, which was pretty comfortable and had... More

I've never stayed at a B&B before. I always thought they'd be too personal intrusive, and we'd be forced to socialize with other guests when we really want to stay there to have time for ourselves. My husband, brother and I had some last minute travel due to a death in the family. We drove from Illinois to South Boston... More

We were enroute to a family event in North Carolina and stayed overnight "half way" at the Charles Bass House. We wish our family event had been there instead. The house is large, lovely, and nicely furnished. The owner is personable without being intrusive. A great hot tub on the porch, and a very well-prepared breakfast.

The B&B is a small place in that it has only two guest rooms. One is a beautiful and very roomy suite with a private bath, and the other is a very nice guest room that shares a bathroom with the owner. The house is a 19th Century Victorian that has been beautifully maintained and updated. Very roomy; very warm;... More

My wife and I stayed in the Guest Suite which was clean and nicely prepared. An adjoining private room was equally pleasing with a couch, chairs and television. Unfortuantely, the satellite television was not working and I could do nothing to fix it. John Fulton, the innkeeper was not at the house at this time either. That was a minor... More
