This was my second visit to the Charles Bass House. Just like the first time, it was perfect. Though I was in town for a friend's family reunion, it was nice to come back to the CB house where I could unwind. The hot tub was the perfect temperature and truly removed the stress from my muscles. The deck was perfect for catching some rays without being on public display. The suite was very spacious and comfortable. The breakfast (fresh mango, french toast, bacon and beverages) was a great start to my day. As we are in a pandemic, John wore his mask, and so did I. And the smell of cleanlilness filled the air. Instead of feeling like I was in a hotel, I felt like I was a special guest in someone's house. John is the most gracious host and has thought of every detail, even in this challenged environment. I can't wait to go back. Thank you John, for making my stay a slice of paradise.

From the beautiful, well-appointed rooms to the gorgeous backyard deck and plantings, it is clear that the owner and host, John, puts much care and thought into this lovely gem of a B&B. The whole experience was a delight.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and felt as comfortable in this beautiful home as if we were in our own home. The hostess’s cordial and gracious hospitality added a distinguishable touch when compared with other places. A highlight of the stay includes a health conscious well prepared breakfast meal from a menu of freshly baked muffins, toasts, bacon, eggs of choice, fresh fruit, juice, and freshly brewed coffee and/or tea. Breakfast is served in a large colonial dining room tastefully decorated all lending to a beautiful experience. Relaxing amenities such as a hot tub, sun/reading room, a library of good reads and sounds of soft easy listening music coaxes you to extend your stay for another day of enjoyment. A great getaway or stop in South Central Virginia.

Find your way to the beautiful Charles Bass house in South Boston, VA. The house is beautiful and gracious. The rooms are beautifully furnished and extremely comfortable. I stayed in the lovely first floor suite which included an adjoining bathroom and large sitting room with TV. The bedroom is spacious and there is plenty of room to store clothes and luggage. The bed is delightful. John is the consummate host. He is a good communicator and welcomes any questions or clarifications about the reservations. He makes a wonderful breakfast each morning. The hot tub is an extra treat especially on cool fall evenings. Thanks John for a great stay!

The Charles Bass House B&B is a charming, beautiful property. John, the owner, serves up a lovely breakfast and provides the perfect dose of Southern hospitality. If you are considering booking a stay here, stop overthinking it and book right now - you won't be sorry! The house is full of windows and natural sunlight, and is well appointed with top quality linens and appealing decor. The downstairs Guest Suite is huge, the bed is super comfortable, and the whole house is very clean. My husband and I had a delightful experience at the Charles Bass House B&B and we can't wait to stay here again the next time our travels take us through South Boston. Do yourself a favor and book a stay here (or surprise a loved one by treating them to a night or two here - it is such a treat!). I really cannot say enough nice things about this fabulous B&B gem!
