Federal Crest Inn

Visit this grand 1909 Georgian Revival Mansion and recharge your spirit! Conveniently located in a quiet historic district with gardens, century-old magnolia trees and a large front porch. It is difficult to realize that Main Street Lynchburg is only six blocks away. The Inn encompasses almost an acre on a corner lot with off-street parking and has almost 8,000 square feet of interior space. Closeby are quality restaurants, Civil War and other historic sites, numerous antique shops, four colleges and universities and other attractions. The owners live on site and will strive to meet your every need.

After early morning juice and coffee, beautifully presented full, hot breakfasts are enjoyed in the mahogany paneled dining room by the romantic fireplace. Delicate handpainted crystal to match the fine china enhances the ambience and many patterns can be found for sale in the Gift Shop in the Fifties Cafe. Other wonderful features of the Inn include the grand foyer with the interior classical colums, the central staircase ascending up to the mezzanine with the leaded glass window, and the third floor theater and stage built by the original owners.

All the gorgeous bedrooms are spacious & uniquely decorated with ensuite private baths and attention given to details. All have fireplaces and feature antiques and elegant, comfortable furniture. Whether one is relaxing by the fireplace or cuddling under the down comforters, the feeling is "special". Two of the bedrooms are suites with a separate sitting room, and another option is available with a convenient connecting two-bedroom suite. The Honeymoon/Romance suite is located down a private hallway with a whirlpool bath surrounded by a mural of the Blue Ridge Mts.
