My husband and I were traveling from Florida to Pennsylvania and stopped in Appomattox for a night and ran across this beautiful B and B! Our room was large and comfortable and the private bath was very nice! The owner, Talia and her 3 year old son, Remy even escorted us to our room! This B and B has a...

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...

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...

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. Our system did show the ticket rang through on the server's side, but you are right that the kitchen did not get it for some reason. As soon as they realized it was missing, your...

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...

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...

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.

The room was in the period of the bed and breakfast. The morning breakfast was excellent and the staff were friendly. The air conditioning was inadequate during the day for the rooms upstairs.The staff for the restaurant were not the most professional. But the owners were excellent.

We greatly enjoyed our stay at the lovely Babcock House! Everything about this B&B is conducive to relaxation and enjoyment. The Old Southern/Victorian decor with amazing antiques - period furniture, paintings, crocheted bedspreads, original wood floors, high ceilings - give the traveler a wonderful journey back in time. Beauty and good taste appear round every corner, in the parlor, in...
