If charm and hospitality rank high on your vacation requirements, pay a visit to The Babcock House located in the heart of Appomattox, just minutes from the Appomattox Courthouse National Historic Park.
It was here that General Robert E. Lee surrendered the Army of Northern Virginia to General Grant, thus ending the civil war. The park is the original site of the Village of Appomattox and all of the buildings have been restored to the 1865 condition.
Also with a short drive you can be at Red Hill:Patrick Henry Shrine, Fort Early, Monticello and Poplar Forest.
To further complement you stay at The Babcock House, you will have the opportunity to enjoy lunch or dinner. Our evening menu includes such items as Grilled New York Strip, Shrimp ‘n’ Grits, house-smoked Ribs and other house specialties. Specials change weekly with emphasis on fresh, locally grown products.
If you are planning on taking a day trip, we can provide you with a box lunch or a gourmet picnic basket. For the ultimate experience in Southern hospitality, this is the place to be.
This restored, turn of the century inn, dates back to 1884. At one time, The Babcock House was the boyhood home of nationally known author, Dr. Havilah Babcock. The Inn features five bedrooms and one suite, all furnished with period antiques.
You will truly feel you have taken a step back in time as you enter The Babcock House. All rooms have private baths, cable television and coffee makers on request. Our Inn has central air conditioning to insure your comfort.
Relax in the evening on one of our verandas with the ceiling fans on and a good book in hand.
