“A fabulous B&B experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

Just spend a few wonderful days in this charming B&B in Lexington, VA. Innkeepers John and Ellen Roberts could not have been more welcoming--the rooms were vey comfortable and the breakfast was fabulous. This is a great location in Lexington--an easy walk into town and to points of interest. I look forward to a return visit for more warm Southern hospitality.

Dona,
We are so glad you had a great time here last week. October with all of its foliage colors and perfect temps in the upper 60's to mid 70's with cooler mornings is hard to beat. Color in the coming days will be around every corner as the foliage really cranks up in the 1075 elevations to the 2000 elevations. We sure hope to see you again, our guests meeting with other family members always find lots to see and do in Historic Lexington. One of our greatest pleasures in doing this business for 28 years has been being a small part of our guests' happiest times. Thanks again for staying with us. John & Ellen Roberts - Innkeepers

Just returned from a 4 night stay at the Llewellen Lodge and want everyone to know this is a wonderful B&B. My wife and I were there as part of a 12 person reunion of my cousins. The lodge and Lexington were a great place for the reunion. The breadfast table was a perfect setting for all our games at night and the living room worked well as the central gathering place. The innkeepers, John and Ellen, were awesome and breakfast was to die for. They could not have been nicer, more accomodating, or more fun.

The Lodge is within easy walking distance of downtown, the Stonewall Jackson cemetary, and the visitor center. Lexington is a beautiful town with a rich heritage, and lots to do. Both VMI and Washington & Lee University are also within walking distance and are definately worth a visit.

Dear jls,
Reunions are always fun to host whether they are small or larger ones, thanks so much for sharing your thoughts on your stay here. Details are important in hosting them and we do try our dead level best to make sure nothing is left out. From day one we have tried to make breakfasts something to look forward to here at the Lodge and they have brought brought many a repeat visitor here. Offering different choices of omelettes, cheeses, cereals, healthfare, teas , etc. has always been well received by Llewellyn Lodge visitors. We look forward to seeing y'all again. John & Ellen Roberts. Innkeepers

Llewellyn Lodge was recommended to me by another B&B owner. Turned out that Lexington was the perfect place to stop off I-81 on my way to Asheville, NC. Lexington is a lovely town and the street that the Lodge is on is very pedestrian friendly. I felt perfectly comfortable, as a woman traveling alone, to walk downtown past all the the lovely historic homes to shop a bit and pick up my own dinner ( both the sushi restaurant and the greek restaurant do takeout!) and check out the gift shop.

John was so helpful and made me feel very "at home." He was also very accomodating with some changes I needed to make. I stayed in two rooms, on two occasions, during my trip down and back. Both rooms were lovely, tastefully decorated and comfortable- without being too fussy. Perfect for me! This spot is on my to do list for my next trip to NC!

We are glad you had an excellent stay here and look forward to your next stay with us, Lexington is a very walker friendly town for sure. A large part of our travelers checking in have driven all day and the very easy 8-10 minute walk to the restaurants a most refreshing way to stretch their legs. The Stonewall Jackson Cemetery is along the way.Our lighted off-street parking lot is hughly appreciated by them as well. John Roberts Innkeeper-Owner

This was our first trip to Lexington and we really enjoyed staying at Llewellyn Lodge. John is a great host. He's local (a true native) and probably has more information about the area than the local visitor's center! The inn is located in a lovely residential setting conveniently within walking distance to VMI and W&L University, historic sites, shops, and restaurants. John prepares a delicious breakfast which guests select from a menu of items, a little different approach from the other B&Bs we've visited. We enjoyed our early morning coffee on the front porch, while other guests chose to have theirs in the gazebo behind the lodge. The inn is tastefully decorated, our bathroom was roomy, the towels were plush, the beds and linens were very comfortable, and with John's hospitality as a bonus amenity, our stay at Llewellyn Lodge was a real pleasure!

We appreciate your staying with us as well taking the time to write this review of the Lodge. As a native Lexingtonian it is always a a special delight to me to give guests some special insight into my hometown. When guests see all there is to do around here many will either extend their stay or book at a stay in the future. Having lots of tourist info that includes historical, hiking, attractions, colleges, culture, natural beauty, scenic drives and much more is an ongoing mission here. The upcoming foliage season is always a big reason to visit Lexington and our Lodge. John Roberts- Innkeeper-Owner

I was fortunate to find the Llewellyn Lodge in Lexington, Virginia when I was searching the list of hotels, motels and Bed and Breakfasts. The thought of staying in the historical and lovely town of Lexington and this particularly welcoming B&B appealed to me. The town offers a variety of restaurants, historical sites and a range of activities.

The night before I arrived in town, a terrible storm swept through the area and caused a number of neighborhoods to lose their electricity. The Llewellyn Lodge was located in one of the fortunate neighborhoods that had their electricity that weekend.

The inn offered a warm, comfortable, secure setting. The rooms are spacious and the breakfast included an award-winning omelet by the proprietor himself. The guests gathered around the dining table for breakfast and we enjoyed each other’s company while enjoying the fine fare. I knew before the weekend was over, that I would be back at the Llewellyn Lodge during my next visit to Lexington, Virginia.

Room Tip: Lexington is a wonderful town to walk in and around. The Llewellyn Lodge is close enough to walk to...

Thanks for the kind words about your stay at Llewellyn, everyone was very understanding the night the freak windstorm came calling and knocked our power off for a bit. Our proximity to Virginia Military Institute and Washington & Lee University makes our location the perfect spot to stay for our college visitors. John & Ellen Roberts- Owner-Innkeepers

This is my second stay at the Llewellyn Lodge, and I will be back! It is lovely, comfortable, hospitable, and warm - and John Roberts, the Lodge's host, is wonderful. I have two children currently enrolled at Washington and Lee, and the Lodge is a perfect location for my visits. I am also planning to look into booking a weekend in the fall to go fly fishing - something offered by John and the Lodge. Many thanks!

We reserved 3 rooms for 3 nights, July 25-28, 2012! We had 4 motorcycles and a support vehicle. We had never been to Lexington, VA and we were absolutely happy with this town and the history that surrounds it!! John, our host, was very helpful in making sure we had something to drink on our arrival and was most accommodating to whatever we needed, even down to tin foil to wrap around our water bottles that we tucked in our saddle bags! The breakfast was great! We took snack foods with us on our rides and were content to eat our dinner when we arrived back in Lexington. Monticello was only 1 hr and 20 mins away, Walton's Mountain was on the return trip back to Lexington, and we even caught a nice ride down the Blue Ridge Parkway, (except for some bad pot holes)! The next day, we spent walking around the town of Lexington! So much civil war history in a beautiful setting! John was very helpful in giving advise from motorcycle rides to restaurants. Beds were so comfortable, and rooms were beautiful! Will be making a return visit!!

Room Tip: All rooms do not have a TV.

Thanks so much for sharing your experiences with us and our readers. We take breakfast very seriously here at the Lodge, no B&Bs we know have menus where you get to pick what what you want for breakfast. Our bedding is Kingsdown, widely known in lodging circles as some most comfortable in the industry. We have several scenic drives detailed in our Special Guest Info books here most appropriate for motorcyclists and auto drivers as well. Come see us and we will make sure you get your money's worth here in Lexington. We look forward to having y'all again. John & Ellen Roberts Owners-Innkeepers
