John was so hospitable and really went out of his way to make our stay as pleasant as possible. Great location central in South Boston. Awesome breakfast. He was sensitive to dietary restrictions as well. A++

John the host is very pleasant, conversational when you want and not when you don't. Rooms are very clean as I said rooms. We were in the upstairs room, I had a fall ended up with stitches and John moved us to the downstairs suite for my convenience. Breakfasts were really good, and snacks are readily available. I would highly... More

We recently spent the night at Charles Bass House, Bed & Breakfast in South Boston, VA. This was our first experience at a B&B. John Fulton, greeted us as family which was much more personable then a hotel clerk that we were accustomed to. John was a great host and made us feel at home. We stayed in the downstairs... More

My stay at the Charles Bass House was delightful. John is a gracious and attentive host, and truly makes you feel as though you're a guest in his home. Staying there was like a mini-spa vacation...the hot tub was great after driving, with a glass of wine to enjoy as well, and made for a relaxing evening. John's restaurant suggestion... More

I have stayed at the Charles Bass House several times. I recently returned to it and am happy to report that it has continued to remain one of my favorite places. The house is a meticulously maintained historic Victorian home in the historic area along Main Street in South Boston (SoBo) - which is itself a beautiful small city. The... More

I agree with the other reviewers, this is a very nice place to stay. We stayed in the suite so my friend and I could have separate beds (the extra bed was a sleep sofa). The rooms were clean, quiet, and comfortable. The house is about 100 years old, and I think it is lovely. There are a couple of... More

I enjoyed two trips to the Charles Bass house. It's a beautiful 19 century home surrounded by well manicured lawn's and stately Oaks. Our host, John, bent over backwards to make everything perfect for us. I'm allergic to wheat, and he provided home-baked gluten-free muffins! On the first occasion we stayed downstairs in the suite, with our own bath. On... More

Thanks to John for making our quick stay in South Boston such a treat. A comfortable bed, clean bathroom and quiet location made for a good sleep. John accommodated our early morning breakfast with healthy muffins, a fruit cup, juice and coffee. Thanks again for making our trip enjoyable.

Stayed in South Boston while doing some genealogy research in nearby Halifax. Lucky that I happened on to this very nice B&B in the old residential area of South Boston. Clean, quiet and authentically decorated in an early 20th century manner. Host was attentive but not intrusive. Breakfast was very good. You will have a peaceful, relaxing stay here. Two... More
