“Great choice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2013

The Llewellyn Lodge is a perfect choice when visiting Lexington and you are tired of the big impersonal chains. It was comfortable, convenient and reasonable. John, the innkeeper, fixes a dynamite breakfast and is a knowledgeable and expert fishing guide. The Inn is located near both W&L and VMI colleges for those who are visiting for that reason. Highly recommended by all in our group after a recent stay.

We spent 3 nights in this comfortable B & B. The room was cozy and the bed very comfortable. Breakfast each day was tasty and well prepared with a good selection of food and drink. John, our host, was a font of information about area attractions and dining establishments. He went out of his way to make our stay - and that of fellow guests - a positive experience.

The B & B is located on Lexington's main thoroughfare and is only a short walk from the historic downtown. An even shorter walk takes guests to the cemetary where Stonewall Jackson is buried. Nearby attractions include Stonewall Jackson's residence*, the Lee Chapel at Washington & Lee *, the Virginia Military Institute (VMI) museum and post tour **, the Virginia Horse Center, and a myriad of quaint shops and restaurants.

We had a wonderful visit and thank John for his warm hospitality. We would highly recommend Llewellyn Lodge.

* The dedicated staff at both make your visit enlightening and well worth the effort.
** The post tour with a Keydet is an informative and interesting experience that will renew your faith in the younger generation. So too will watching a full dress parade of the corps on the parade ground, a treat we were fortunate to experience.

Room Tip: We deliberately chose a room without a TV. This was really nice because we got more time to talk an...

Being from the Northwest, we are always so impressed when we run into the highest levels of true southern hospitality...and that is exactly what my wife and I found at Llewellyn Lodge for two nites this week....The rooms were spacious and well appointed, the breakfasts gourmet and delicious with great choices, and the home itself well situated in a beautiful neighborhood of grand older homes, walking distance to the restaurants downtown and famous history attractions also(Stonewall Jackson burial cemetary)...the highlight of the stay however resides in John our host, who gave us lots of special attention and great advice on outdoor activities, like hikes, that we normally wouldn't have discovered on our own! John has a wonderful warm and charming way to greet and host guests which made us feel literally right at home...you really can't find a better option for a wonderful stay in picturesque and welcoming Lexington, Virginia.

Room Tip: corner suite was large and bright on street side

We stopped here for one night on the way to and from Asheville from the DC area. A small B&B with a delightful host - John. Lovely personally cooked breakfast, and comfortable room. Lexington is a small town, but worth a walk-around visit. If you are in the area for nature, John will be your person for advice about what to do and where to go. We unfortunately were 'just passing through'.

Room Tip: We asked for Room 4 since we had been told it was the largest. We are both tall people, and it work...

I had to attend an out of town wedding in Lexington. The bride's parents gave me a list of hotels they had blocked rooms at but none of them had the favored reviews of Llewellyn Lodge. John was the best host and oh so friendly! He really did make it feel like home. He even carried some of our luggage up to the room. He was the most gracious host and attentive to our needs. The room and bathroom were perfect (I was in room #5). The beds were awesome. I have lower back problems and this bed was wonderful for me. I liked the way they have a dining room for breakfast because it was nice to meet our fellow guests. My only regret is not being able to stay longer to take in all the beauty the region had to offer. If I ever make it back to Lexington there is no doubt I will be back to see John at Llewellyn Lodge.

The B&B is a beautiful home with very comfortable beds, a spacious bath, and OUTRAGEOUSLY great breakfasts! John is very knowledgable about the area and very willing to help you plan out your time. It's a pleasant walk into downtown, which you need after eating breakfast. We didn't eat lunch either day because breakfast was so filling! We had a great time and would stay at Llewellyn again - Thanks John!!!

Room Tip: Room 6 has a very comfortable king bed and a spacious bathroom. If you are a light sleeper and some...
