“unique experience from a unique host!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2004

We ve stayed at many bed and breakfasts, and they re all more fun than hotels. Now and again something is truly memorable. We heard classical guitar music coming from The Residence music room and went in to see what album was playing. It wasn t a recording, but the host practicing a piece for his church. We gave him several requests and were delighted by a half hour classical guitar concert of our favorite hymns and love songs. Talk about  the personal touch! We can t wait to return to Lynchburg! (By-the-way, great food and accommodations too!) Jack and Ann Turpin Atlanta, VA

The Caylor?s made us feel welcome and the accommodations were luxurious. Though the breakfast was excellent, we most of all appreciated our fantastic hosts sharing their time with us. They even sent us a beautiful memory photo of us enjoying their place!?The Residence Bed and Breakfast? has the perfect location for folks like us. We put our car in their parking lot and walked everywhere we wanted to go. It?s a stone?s throw to two great restaurants, the park, and a short bicycle ride (bicycles provided by The Residence) to the beautiful Blackwater Creek Bicycle Trail. Overall, a great experience!Winston-Salem, NC

I absolutely loved the service, food and comfort shown to us at The Residence last spring. We especially appreciated the history of the fine old house, and the care taken to preserve traditions from a gentler era. A well-deserved AAA 3-Diamond rating!

We stayed in the spring. What a lovely time of year! There are several parks nearby, and bicycles are available. Breakfast was different every morning - always delicious! It was definitely worth the extra dollar!

Stayed in the Pearl S. Buck room. Short walk to Randolph-Macon Women's College. There were some problems with airconditioning in the summer. Excellent breakfast and hospitality.
