“Warm welcome and excellent breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2012

Steve was a friendly,attentive and knowledgeable host. His breakfasts were set out as a buffet, with some variation each day: fresh fruit, cereal, croissants, pastries, one day there was a cooked breakfast option.

Our room was "Thompson & Grinnan". It is a room from the original house and therefore, rather than having an en-suite, has a good-sized private bathroom on the landing, which we found perfectly acceptable.

The house is a short walk from the restaurants of Culpeper, and there is a good range of those.

Steve is a terrific host, friendly and full of useful information. The bed (we stayed in the Pulliam suite) was comfortable, the room and bath were clean and neat, and breakfast was good (two kinds of hot croissants, berries, melon, granola and other cereals, juice, coffee). Our main criticism is that the main rooms of the inn seemed a little cluttered with knick-knacks and antiques. This is often seen as part of the charm of B&Bs, but this one seemed a little overdone.

Room Tip: We chose Pulliam's Retreat because of the porch and separate sitting room, but be aware the both...

Fountain Hall is a lovely antebellum home, well maintained, decorated, and furnished. It is situated among other lovely homes for an overall pleasant effect.

We stayed in the Lightfoot & Hill room on the second floor; the beds were quite comfortable, the room was spacious (with the exception of the bathroom and shower, which were a tight fit, but certainly adequate). Our sleep was comfortable and quiet.

Our host was friendly and welcoming, even though our arrival was quite late.
Breakfast was good, and there was plenty of it.

We would definitely stay here again.

We spent the weekend in Culpeper Va at The Fountai Hall B & B. It was outstanding. You'd never know that the B & B was built in 1859. It is meticulously maintained and the rooms are very spacious with comfortable furniture and timeless accessories.

The home made croissants are delicious and the staff couldn't be more helpful. You really felt "at home" here at Fountain Hall.

From an access point it is great. You are within blocks to 5 great restaurants as well as shopping.
And Civil War Battlefields are close by. Culpeper is a great town and Fountain Hall is an outstanding place to stay.

Cannot say enough about the Fountain Hall B&B in Culpeper VA! Steve and Kathy were great hosts, cannot say enough about their service to their guests and you can walk to so many quaint shops and restaurants. In fact, never moved the car all weekend. If you grew up in the 60's, this town is a reminder of what "life use to be like". Everyone is friendly, full of information and directions, etc...I would like to go back and spend a week! Check it out for an unforgettable experience! http://www.fountainhall.com/

We have horses and Fountain Hill B&B is close to the Culpeper equestrian venue. The property is old and shows wear, but old is good and wear is comfortable. The lawn is pretty but the shrubs and landscaping show need. No matter. The house is large, the rooms are as advertised and the hosts are great. We were in the Chelf Room, which was on the second floor with a private porch overlooking the back yard. Very nice. The back yard of the house is right on the railroad tracks and trains come by often. Not an issue. There is a tree buffer there and the trains are quiet and respectful of the residential neighborhood.
Innkeepers Steve and Kathi are friendly and conversational. Breakfast is made up of continental stuff but very fresh, Hot and GOOD. They have dogs that are people persons and will interact if invited.
The property is within easy walking distance of Davis Street, which houses much of the hustle and bustle of the neighborhood. We will go back the next time our horse goes back.

We stayed at this very nice B&B on January 28. We live in Lynchburg, Va. and travelled to Washington to see a show (matinee) at the Kennedy Center. We decided not to drive all the way back and decided to stay in Culpeper, which turned out to be a great idea. Our B&B is run by an extremely nice couple (who also happened to be going to the same show in Washington as us!) who we so enjoyed talking with. We stayed in their smallest room, Thompson and Grinnan, which was cozy and very nice, with a King bed. Our bathroom was down the hall, but it was no problem at all. There are bathrobes in the closet and we never ran into any other guest coming or going to our hallway bath. The room has a sink in it, so we actually had 1 1/2 baths - worked out well getting ready in the morning. Breakfast was good - fresh fruit (yummy raspberries), fresh croissants - regular and some stuffed with cheese/jam (not store bought, but cooked that morning). The only criticism I would have, and it's very minor, is that the light bulbs (the new type of bulbs) in the lamps didn't put out enough light to read by very well. Very minor issue. I would definitely stay here again.
