The Carriage House inn bed and breakfast
, the award winning bed and breakfast in Lynchburg, Virginia is located within walking distance to historic downtown Lynchburg.
The charm, grace and hospitality of the original Watts family and their grand home has been retained by the current owners, Kathy and Michael Bedsworth during their four year restoration of the mansion. The home is a treasure trove, rich with architectural detail including many of the original fireplaces (9), mantels, light fixtures, moldings, intricately carved woodwork, doors, bath tubs and sinks.
The four guest rooms in the circa 1878 Italianate mansion are oversized and well appointed to include fine linens, fluffy towels, comfy robes and slippers. Colors throughout the house are representative of colors of the late 1800s.
While staying here you will find the atmosphere to be warm and inviting. Guests staying at The Carriage House Inn Bed and Breakfast can enjoy the mansion much as it was back in the 1800s with some updates such as shower enclosures in the baths, central air and heat and wi-fi.
