Highly recommend. We are visiting Appomattox Courthouse for the 156th anniversary of the surrender of Lee to Grant. We saw recommendations to go to Babcock House Restaurant. We are delighted that we had dinner there! The food was delicious. We had chicken with mashed potatoes and asparagus which was melt-in-your-mouth wonderful. For dessert, my husband ordered the white chocolate bread pudding which I would love to have the recipe for. The chef and server were friendly and helpful.

This charming B&B has everything you hope for - lovely, comfortable accommodations, delicious food, and a staff that could not be more delightful to converse with. From check-in to check-out, we were pampered. We wanted to get away for a quiet weekend and some history. We never imagined a breakfast this amazing and dinner - wow! Everything was fresh, beautifully displayed and melted in your mouth. We would go back to Appomattox just to stay here again and again.

We loved our stay at the Babcock House. Our room was spacious and very comfortable. We ate dinner at the onsite restaurant and our food was delicious. It was so convenient to eat dinner onsite and then go upstairs to our room to relax. Our breakfast the next morning was excellent with great French press coffee. We look forward to returning and visiting a few other museums nearby.

We found this B&B on hotels.com, where it had a super-high rating, and the price was lower than most other places in the general area where we wanted to stay. (Budget tip: After finding the listing on hotels.com, we checked out the Babcock House website, and the price was $20 less than booking through hotels.com.) We had a very pleasant stay. Talia (one of the owners) was lovely and very attentive, the bed was very comfortable, and the breakfasts (included) were spectacular. The breakfast was a real treat since, in these days of Covid, most hotels that used to include a buffet breakfast aren't doing that anymore, and here we got a fresh-cooked gourmet meal. We definitely recommend staying here!

Wanted to see some civil war history nearby and stumbled into this hidden gem. Room was very comfortable, homey, and well appointed. Innkeeper was very hospitable. Would definitely stay here again and would recommend. Also had a terrific breakfast there.
