“A wondeful experience”
Reviewed 11 October 2013

My husband and I checked in to the Carriage House on a Friday afternoon. Kathy and Mike, the innkeepers, met us at the door. We were given a short tour of the home, which we loved because we wouldn't have had a chance to see all of the rooms on our own. Mike explained about the house's history and Lynchburg's history.

Everything is beautifully maintained. The bed in our room was really the most comfortable that I have slept in, in a very long time!

There is a large front porch that wraps around the front of the house and looks on to a large lawn and cobbled street. We thoroughly enjoyed our breakfasts, Saturday and Sunday morning. Kathy and Mike make every effort to accommodate dietary restrictions. While we didn't have any, another guest did have restrictions and from what I observed, their food was very tastefully prepared and presented.

I had several lodging opportunities available to me for this weekend and I'm very happy to have chosen the Carriage House!

My husband and I had our very first visit to a B&B at the CHIB&B in mid July of 2013. Based upon other reviews on TA, we basically picked it off a map as we were going to be in the area for another event. They placed us in the separate house out back where we had complete privacy, spacious rooms, a kitchenette, TV and internet. It was as if we had our own apartment. The rooms had everything we needed, they were clean and refreshed daily.
Our host and hostess provided delicious breakfasts each morning. They were very knowledgeable about the area, providing directions, maps, dinner reservations and suggestions for things to do. I simply don't know how an experience could have been more pleasant and personalized.

We had a fantastic stay with Mike and Kathy at the Carriage House Inn. Things started off with a surprise upgrade. They placed us in the Carriage House which had a kitchenette, living room and seperate bedroom. Very roomy. The breakfasts were wonderful as was the table conversation with our hosts. Neat old historic neighborhood with lots of neighbors renovating. Really enjoyed Lynchburg and this home base. The B and B is close to an access for the local bike,running trail system.

Rarely are my expectations exceeded but in this instance they were exceeded beyond expectations. There was an event in Lynchburg VA that made it difficult for us to get a hotel room so we ended up at the Carriage House Inn Bed and Breakfast. This was our first experience in a Bed and Breakfast, after all who wants to go somewhere and stay in a stranger's house. Well, not only did we have privacy, but the hosts Kathy and Mike were always available for dining or recreational suggestions. The room was nicer than any hotel we had ever stayed in and the room was quiet....No ice machines or elevator noises here. The first morning we had a breakfast that was fit for a king which was outdone on our second morning. The other nice thing was we were not confined to our room. There is a huge porch with chairs to relax in and in the back yard there is a patio with a fish pond! We met some other great people there, something that usually doesn't happen in a hotel. I'm now afraid to go to another Bed and Breakfast because the bar has been set so high by Kathy and Mike I don't know that we could ever find such a nice place.

Room Tip: Downtown dining is walking distance. There are bike and running paths at the end of the street.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Carriage House Inn on our first trip to Lynchburg, Virginia. Kathy and Mike have done a wonderful job restoring one of the finest historic homes in Lynchburg. The Inn is just minutes from downtown with its points of interest and its excellent and varied restaurants. Our accommodations were extremely comfortable and spacious. Our breakfasts were delicious and plentiful. An added dimension was the wonderful way Mike and Kathy made us feel at home. They were very helpful with tourist information and with answers to our questions. Their suggestions of things to see and places to eat were great. We also want to point out their attention to our wellbeing; one of us has a food allergy and our breakfasts were prepared with that in mind. We loved the Carriage House and plan to return.

My daughter and I stayed here before she moved into her dorm at Sweet Briar College. We ended up arriving very late due to weather and Kathy and Mike were very accommodating, waiting up for us to arrive very late at night. We both have severe allergies and we received dishes for breakfast made just for us. The rooms are beautifully restored and the hospitality is exemplary. Upon my next visit to the area I had the misfortune to stay at a different B&B in town as the Carriage House was fully booked, never again!!

We recently stayed in Lynchburg at Carriage House with our great hosts Mike and Kathy and were thoroughly pleased with our experience. Their hospitality, helpfulness, breakfasts and friendliness were outstanding! We would highly recommend their wonderful house from the 1870's to anyone who would like to visit Lynchburg and that part of Virginia and would certainly return here ourselves. Lynchburg is very historic with Point of Honor, Red Hill and Poplar Forest as well as the town itself. Much restoration is occurring which will improve the town. The dining was excellent at Waterstone and Shoemakers and San Soucy winery is a must. Thank you, Mike and Kathy for a great memorable visit!

Room Tip: The RT Watts room was large and spacious and certainly would stay in it again and recommend it. It h...
