We spent 3 nights in this comfortable B & B. The room was cozy and the bed very comfortable. Breakfast each day was tasty and well prepared with a good selection of food and drink. John, our host, was a font of information about area attractions and dining establishments. He went out of his way to make our stay - and that of fellow guests - a positive experience.
The B & B is located on Lexington's main thoroughfare and is only a short walk from the historic downtown. An even shorter walk takes guests to the cemetary where Stonewall Jackson is buried. Nearby attractions include Stonewall Jackson's residence*, the Lee Chapel at Washington & Lee *, the Virginia Military Institute (VMI) museum and post tour **, the Virginia Horse Center, and a myriad of quaint shops and restaurants.
We had a wonderful visit and thank John for his warm hospitality. We would highly recommend Llewellyn Lodge.
* The dedicated staff at both make your visit enlightening and well worth the effort.
** The post tour with a Keydet is an informative and interesting experience that will renew your faith in the younger generation. So too will watching a full dress parade of the corps on the parade ground, a treat we were fortunate to experience.
