Location is perfect and close to attractions in quaint residential area with southern small town feel and hospitality. You can walk to a fantastic local eatery, the Rail Yard to enjoy great southern cooking at reasonable prices. Breakfast at the B&B, poached eggs, bacon and grits, was fantastic. The B&B also serves lunch and dinner, which is supposed to be... More

Babcock House was a great location to see the historical sites in Appomattox. It's a beautiful home, the room was wonderful and the included morning breakfasts were all fantastic! We also had dinner at Babcock one night and it was excellent with all local/fresh ingredients. We stayed four nights and the House as our base camp to travel the sites... More

We stayed at The Babcock House on the last night of a 3-week driving trip and had both dinner and breakfast there. We were warmly welcomed by our hostess, Talia Clusman. Our room (with bath) was very comfortable, quiet, and charming. Our dinner was a most pleasant surprise. Charles Clusman, the chef, produced dishes for us and our 2 friends... More

When you make a mistake, the best thing to do is own up to it, don't make excuses. We recent made reservations for brunch for 5 people. We were promptly seated and drinks provided by the hostess. It did take some time before the waitress showed up. We put in our order and 30 min later, still no food and... More

I am SO sorry about your experience here Sunday. I will be speaking with the staff about handling this type of situation in the future.

We are decades-long students of the Civil War, so our inaugural trip to Appomattox was long-awaited and extra special. The Babcock House came highly recommended by close friends. We were impressed with the lovely period home, spacious rooms, great dinner menu, and the welcoming and attentive owners - who have a darling three year-old son/nephew. The downstairs area operates as... More

We came to town to visit Appomattox Courthouse and the Confederate Museum. We stayed at Babcock Inn just minutes away. The room was spacious and well appointed. The wash sink was in the room itself, which was unusual but actually ended up being convenient. The owners were gracious, and we got to meet their son at breakfast - an adorable... More

This was a great find. We loved our room, large enough and had a tv which is rare in b&b. The breakfast was first rate, kept us satisfied until late in the day. I would high recon end this b&b to anyone visiting Appomattox.
