The Tolley House
Ranked #1 of 6 Lynchburg B&B and Inns
Reviewed October 10, 2012

Two rooms are used for the B&B. We were in Miss Ethel's room, which has a pink tiled bathroom and just the things in there that an older woman might have, like lady head vases - remember those? Usually, I'm a minimalist and don't stay in B&B's because I can't stand the ruffles and chintz, but here there were no ruffles and chintz and the Miss Ethel bits seemed to just add charm. The room was very large and comfortable (good thing there was a step stool to help me climb into the bed). If you like to watch TV, this isn't the place for you (There is a small TV in the room.) We sat on the porch in the rockers and sipped the Gentleman Jack we bought at the distillery.

Coffee, ice, cookies and water were available all the time in the hallway just outside the room, which was great since I got up at 5 a.m. and drank coffee and read in the quiet of the house and went back to bed.

Frank and Karen are very gracious. They sat down to Sunday morning breakfast with us (yummy) and told us all about the history of the area and their connection to it.

Room Tip: Ms. Ethel's room is cozy and ladylike ( and has a tub in the large, pink-tiled bathroom). If you...

We stayed at this lovely home last week and throughly enjoyed. This place alone, is worth a trip to Lynchburg. We definitely want to visit again. We visited during the week and only had a chance to meet Karen. She is most hospitable and charming, assuring us we should make ourselves at home. Karen also gave us a great history recount. We had a private intrance which was very nice. Our room was "Mr. Lem's Room" ; clean, comfortable, roomy, so different from a hotel room. We have stayed in many B&Bs, this one is in the top 5. Every detail was covered. Our breakfast was absolutely delicious, even the coffee was outstanding.
We will recommend this place to our pickiest of friends.

I can't say enough how much we enjoyed our visit to Lynchburg, TN and to the Tolley House B&B. Karen & Frank were so welcoming and friendly. We enjoyed rocking on the front porch and watching the sun set with a glass of wine. They cooked a full breakfast for us in the morning and joined us with stories and history of the area. My husband told me after we left that he felt like a member of the Fletcher family now!! Beautiful people, beautiful home, beautiful grounds...perfect little get-away!

We stayed here because of the great reviews and I must admit: it was a great stay!! Very nice people, accomodating, full of history, very clean....the breakfast of pancakes with fruit, sausage and wonderful stories from Karen was absolutely the best!! Thanks so much!
PS My husband is not so used to the elegant dining room we had breakfast in, but he adjusted. The fruit snack and T-cakes were wonderful, as well as the ice on hand....the coffee in the morning was great. We hung out on the property which Karen so graciously extended to us...it was like home but being pampered.

We had the most wonderful stay at The Tolley House as part of our visit to Lynchburg. Karen and Frank could not have been more welcoming, Karen was able to share so much of her knowledge of the local history with us it really made this a special stay. The room was lovely and the pancakes at breakfast just fantastic! Cannot praise it highly enough.

My wife and I had the pleasure to spend a couple of nights at the Tolley House recently. From the moment we were greeted by Frank and Karen we were made to feel like family. The house is a beautiful piece of history and our room was well appointed, clean and comfortable. The extra touches of fresh flowers and refreshments were thoughtful and well appreciated. Although I brought my wife to Lynchburg to tour the distillery, the highlight of our stay was breakfast at the Tolley House. Fantastic food in an elegant dining room with our new friends. We will be back to Lynchburg in the fall and we will only stay with Karen and Frank at the Tolley House.

We arrived before dark on a Friday night and Frank was cutting the grass. The aroma of fresh cut grass was invitng. Karen greeted us inside and was a fabulous hostess. She told us all about the property, place to eat, and showed us to our two rooms. The rooms were way better than a hotel. Our night was spent with a full moon coming up over the hill. It was quiet and the sleep was very enjoyable. Breakfast was home style around the table and delicious also. We are going back in December.
