If you are planning a visit to Appomattox, this is the place to stay. Our room was large and comfortable with a Queen Bed and two sitting chairs. We loved the bathrobes, free wi-fi and complimentary beverages. Breakfast was delicious. But even better was our dinner. Delicious and well priced. Jerry is a fantastic chef. His wife Sheila was more... More

It was a pleasant stay, except for the innkeeper's unpleasant demeanor. This place could be great if the innkeeper was friendlier. Pros Location was good Room was nice - good decorations, clean Dinner was great Dinner waitress/hostess was pleasant Cons The innkeeper was rude and unwelcoming. There were several comments that did not make us feel welcome. Plus, she did... More

We did not get to stay here, though we would love to. We were on a tour of battlefields and after visiting Appomattox Courthouse, we wanted to get some lunch. We had seen good reviews of Babcock house on Yelp and so we decided to try it. We got there about 20 minutes before Sunday lunch service was to end,... More

Wanting a Bed and Breakfast close to Appomattox Court House, I chose Babcock House. We only had an overnight stay in the middle of the week. Few were staying there that night so we had a very quiet evening. The room was wonderful with all the amenities we required. Our host, Shelia, met us at the door and took us... More

Babcock house is a lovely B&B, the best I've ever stayed in. Sheila was very friendly, and gave us much good advice about things to do in town. We made reservations for dinner the first night and it was delicious. We also thoroughly enjoyed the breakfasts. The room was clean, looked out at the front of the house, and we... More

We stayed at Babcock House as one stop on a week long bicycle tour. Unfortunately, it rained hard the day we arrived. The owner Sheila met us at the door with towels, let us borrow her dryer to dry out our soaked clothing and strategized with us on how to rent a truck to transport our ensemble to our next... More

This is a beautiful B&B, with totally authentic furnishings, paintings, and was immaculately clean! We called Sheila on our way to Appomattox, and were delighted they had room. We had dinner in their restaurant, which was incredibly delicious, and everyone was so friendly, and helpful, yet very professional. Our breakfast the next morning was served on lovely dishes, with a... More

We did not stay at the B&B but drove 25 miles on Saturday night to have dinner there on a strong recommendation On arrival we were pleased to see beautifully maintained grounds and a classic 19th century inn that is very well maintained. On to dinner. Was it the best dinner I've very had? No. Was it in the top... More

We were touring in the area and stayed here at Babcock House for one evening. Very clean and inviting. We arrived late and the key was secreted away for us. We had a nice omelet for breakfast and then on to the surrender battlefield. All in all a nice stay.
