I attended a wedding reception here and was impressed with the beauty of the hotel and event center and with the quality of the staff. The food was delicious and the reception room was elegantly decorated. I wish I had stayed in this amazing-looking hotel!

I travel across the country, and I refuse to stay or eat (or do business in general) with anything other than locally owned, American owned, family run establishments. Usually, that greatly limits my hotel stays, but this BLEW ME OUT OF THE WATER! Amazing building, history and staff. My room was great, and I LOVED having individual Keurigs in the... More

Absolutely one of the top hotels I have ever had the chance to experience. I only wish I could have stayed longer. Yes they have the trains coming by at odd hours but I would return again even with the trains. Also if you are going to be staying at the hotel definitely want to check out the restaurant Shoemakers.... More

What a great property and such a fun atmosphere. The service here was great. The most disappointing part for us is that we were here for less than 24 hours so we didn't really get to enjoy all the hotel had to offer. It was close to the river, so it was nice to take a walk down to the... More

We decided to stay here as a stopover on a road trip, and were interested in checking out Lynchburg. We had a fantastic stay. The entire hotel has a very unique and charming atmosphere, built in to two historic mills, and tastefully showcases the architectural features of the building from the lobby to each room. The maitre'd was very attentive... More

Quite randomly found this little gem of a hotel while on a recent road trip. They were busy and we only got our room because of a cancellation. But the guys at the front desk were warm, friendly and funny. They helped me find a parking space for our car and checked us in speedily. Really liked all the little... More

“If you are a light sleeper, ask for a quiet room near the front parking lot. Regardless of your location, you may still hear the train.”
