The Federal Crest Inn B&B is a grand old house with lots of historical attributes. The room with the four-poster bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was delightful with lots of fruit and home-made items. We loved "Lerch," the butler forever standing at the front door with welcome mints. Off street parking is a plus. Ann and Phil are great friendly... More

We stayed at the Federal Crest B&B and found it to be charming and peaceful. The owners, Ann and Phil, are great innkeepers and very accommodating. Our room was lovely with a comfortable 4 poster bed. Breakfast was delicious(and included) - yogurt and fruit parfait, blueberry muffin, eggs Benedict and bacon. Within walking distance to good restaurants. We are planning... More

You really should visit Lynchburg to get away to the beautiful countryside of VA...and while doing so - please stay at the Federal Crest Inn. Wonderful southern mansion with large rooms, comfortable beds (Magnolia room has private porch!) and great breakfasts...flowers are beautiful accessory. Hosts Phil and Ann Ripley are warm and wonderful...willing to share recommendations for your visit but... More

Federal Crest Inn was definitely worth 5 stars. Ann and Phil (the innkeepers) were very nice and the accommodations very comfortable. Outstanding breakfast. Elegant with beautiful flowers. We recommend highly.

We had our first stay at this B & B. The host and hostess made us feel welcome and like we had been friends for a long time. The room was spacious and well appointed. This is an older home, lots of history, don't expect "new". Our breakfast was probably one of the finest presentations we have ever had at... More

From the moment we arrived we were in awe of this beautiful, exquisite, historic jewel of a house. From the magnificent gigantic magnolia trees in the garden to the jaw droppingly gorgeous interiors. The way the breakfast table was set was a piece of art. The food home made and delicious. Ann & Phil spoilt us from arrival to departure.... More

Traveling back to NJ from Nashville, found this restful gem to stop and refuel. The trip north took longer than we thought. Phil graciously stay up and made us welcome. The rooms were large and comfy. Breakfast was not only delicious but plentiful. The inn is was a welcome stop over on a long trip home

Wonderfully located in a beautiful neighborhood and walking distance from much of historic Lynchburg, this lovingly restored home is a terrfilc choice. Phil and Ann are most welcoming, the rooms are period pieces and Ann's breakfasts are fabulous.

I absolutely love coming here. This has to be at least my tenth stay at Federal Crest. Ann and Phil are just wonderful people and their rooms are beautiful. Everything is clean and the breakfast is to die for. I can't wait till I'm back in Lynchburg again!

We stayed two nights while visiting Liberty University. We absolutely loved everything! We arrived about three hours early and our room was already prepared. The house was immaculate. Built in 1909, but with every modern convenience needed. We stay in the Bluebird room. Breakfast was like dining as a King. If you want to be pampered and feel like family... More
