“Beautiful home.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2012

Fountain Hall is a lovely antebellum home, well maintained, decorated, and furnished. It is situated among other lovely homes for an overall pleasant effect.

We stayed in the Lightfoot & Hill room on the second floor; the beds were quite comfortable, the room was spacious (with the exception of the bathroom and shower, which were a tight fit, but certainly adequate). Our sleep was comfortable and quiet.

Our host was friendly and welcoming, even though our arrival was quite late.
Breakfast was good, and there was plenty of it.

We would definitely stay here again.

We spent the weekend in Culpeper Va at The Fountai Hall B & B. It was outstanding. You'd never know that the B & B was built in 1859. It is meticulously maintained and the rooms are very spacious with comfortable furniture and timeless accessories.

The home made croissants are delicious and the staff couldn't be more helpful. You really felt "at home" here at Fountain Hall.

From an access point it is great. You are within blocks to 5 great restaurants as well as shopping.
And Civil War Battlefields are close by. Culpeper is a great town and Fountain Hall is an outstanding place to stay.

Cannot say enough about the Fountain Hall B&B in Culpeper VA! Steve and Kathy were great hosts, cannot say enough about their service to their guests and you can walk to so many quaint shops and restaurants. In fact, never moved the car all weekend. If you grew up in the 60's, this town is a reminder of what "life use to be like". Everyone is friendly, full of information and directions, etc...I would like to go back and spend a week! Check it out for an unforgettable experience! http://www.fountainhall.com/

We have horses and Fountain Hill B&B is close to the Culpeper equestrian venue. The property is old and shows wear, but old is good and wear is comfortable. The lawn is pretty but the shrubs and landscaping show need. No matter. The house is large, the rooms are as advertised and the hosts are great. We were in the Chelf Room, which was on the second floor with a private porch overlooking the back yard. Very nice. The back yard of the house is right on the railroad tracks and trains come by often. Not an issue. There is a tree buffer there and the trains are quiet and respectful of the residential neighborhood.
Innkeepers Steve and Kathi are friendly and conversational. Breakfast is made up of continental stuff but very fresh, Hot and GOOD. They have dogs that are people persons and will interact if invited.
The property is within easy walking distance of Davis Street, which houses much of the hustle and bustle of the neighborhood. We will go back the next time our horse goes back.

We stayed at this very nice B&B on January 28. We live in Lynchburg, Va. and travelled to Washington to see a show (matinee) at the Kennedy Center. We decided not to drive all the way back and decided to stay in Culpeper, which turned out to be a great idea. Our B&B is run by an extremely nice couple (who also happened to be going to the same show in Washington as us!) who we so enjoyed talking with. We stayed in their smallest room, Thompson and Grinnan, which was cozy and very nice, with a King bed. Our bathroom was down the hall, but it was no problem at all. There are bathrobes in the closet and we never ran into any other guest coming or going to our hallway bath. The room has a sink in it, so we actually had 1 1/2 baths - worked out well getting ready in the morning. Breakfast was good - fresh fruit (yummy raspberries), fresh croissants - regular and some stuffed with cheese/jam (not store bought, but cooked that morning). The only criticism I would have, and it's very minor, is that the light bulbs (the new type of bulbs) in the lamps didn't put out enough light to read by very well. Very minor issue. I would definitely stay here again.

My husband and I stayed at the Fountain Hall B&B during a long weekend trip to Virginia and we were pleasantly surprised. The proprieter was very friendly and welcoming, giving us a tour of the place and making some great recommendations on where to get dinner. The B&B is within walking distance of downtown Culpeper, which is lined with wonderful little shops and restaurants. Our room was clean and comfortable, and we were treated to a hot breakfast the next morning, which was a pleasant surprise as many B&Bs we've visited served only continental style breakfasts. I would love a chance to come back and spend a little more time in Culpeper after this stay.

This bed and breakfast was perfect for our weekend in Culpeper. We wanted to be able to walk into town easily, to leave from the house for a bike ride, and to have privacy and space. We rented the Puliam's Retreat which had an extra sitting room we enjoyed while watching college football after an afternoon in Culpeper.
The accomodations are clean, comfortable and stay true to the website. Steve was a great host, helpful without being pushy or intrusive. There was plenty of food for breakfast (which I would classify as continental "plus").
We enjoyed having access to softdrinks at our convenience and even had a small frig in our room.
All in all, a very nice weekend.
