A friend recommended we make a trip to Lynchburg and stay at The Carriage House Inn Bed and Breakfast. Ok where is Lynchburg and what is there to do? As soon as we arrived at the B and B we were inspired. The house was absolutely gorgeous. We had morning coffee and afternoon drinks on the huge porch and that was great. Just a couple blocks down the street we found hiking trails and bike paths. We waked to downtown restaurants for dinner. We borrowed a fishing pole and went fishing (they weren’t biting) in the James River only three blocks from the house.
We visited Thomas Jefferson’s summer house which is where he escaped to avoid the crowds in Charlottesville. The D-Day memorial was very moving and is worth visiting. Appomatox Courthouse was also very interesting. Three days later we had to say goodby and head back home without doing half of the things we wanted to do once we got there.
Lynchburg is somewhat off the beaten path but this is a must see place and if you make it there, the only place to stay is The Carriage House Inn. The restoration work was magnificent and the hosts, Kathy and Mike were the best. Breakfast was too good for words. We stayed in the Emma Watts Room and it was comfortable, clean, and the old tub was wonderful.More
