I stayed for the third time at Longwood B&B on a business trip to the university. This is a beautiful old house with gigantic pillars in the front and wrap-around porches. Patrons are greeted after hours by an envelope that gives them a code to access the house. Cookies await in the entrance parlor. The rooms are beautifully appointed with antique furnishings. Staying here gives one the run of the house, with options to read in various sitting rooms and parlors. Each room is decorated with period pieces but has been modernized to include very nice, clean bathrooms. There is no coffee/tea service in the rooms but guests have full access to a large kitchen, where breakfast options also await (you can fry up an egg or toast bagels; the fridge has fresh fruit, yoghurt, and other items for breakfast). Bowls of candy can be found here and there. In a little upstairs sunroom there's a computer and a printer. There's free Internet (WiFi) service throughout the house. An ironing board and iron can be found in the kitchen area, and beware that the closets in the bedrooms are a tad small and have only one or two hangers. Beds are comfortable, and the place is quite quiet. There's ample parking in the rear. Overall I'd recommend this place to anyone staying in Farmville or visiting Longwood University.
I stayed at the Longwood B&B for 2 nights. I stayed in the Lancaster Room, which has the largest king+ sized bed imaginable. I can't speak for the ease of booking a room there as my accommodations were made for me. However, upon arriving, there was a letter in the mailbox for me containing the code to the door to get in. Now, the cynics in us would say that this is, perhaps, a little wonky as anyone could check the mailbox for a code and rob the place blind. However, it's not that kind of town. Getting in to the B&B was not difficult, and I found fresh cookies waiting for me at the front door, along with a fat envelope in a big glass bowl with my name on it containing the keys to my room, several welcome letters, rules for the house, and access codes for the free (and strong signaled) wifi. Checkout was easy. Leave your keys in your room and be on your merry way. Like I said, I never saw a single person who was in charge of anything while I was there. So if you like to be left alone in peace, that's great. But if you were to need something, you might have to work a little harder to get that assistance.Oh, the food--cookies at the door were great, and snacks are scattered about the place. Overall, I would certainly stay there again.
My husband and I came into town for a function at Longwood and the university put us up here. We got the room shown in the profile picture. We cam after dark and the inn director, Lorrie, goes home at five or so, so we were just left a set of keys and a security code to get into the house. We had a sweet note from Lorrie telling us all about the furniture in our room and the history of the house. The bedding was DIVINE. The room at its own white noise machine, and I set it to rain and enjoyed it's calming effects. My shower was hot, breakfast was basic (help yourself), and decor was beautiful. Lorrie and her staff do not come into the house until after check out (10am) so the only other people we saw were other guests. This suited me just fine - I don't enjoy a B&B where the innkeeper hovers over you while you eat breakfast and sip your tea. The icing on the cake was coming back to the inn after realizing I'd forgotten something to find cheerful Lorrie, who gave me a map of the town with her annotations, chatted with me about her favorite parts of Farmville, and sent me on my way! Thanks, Lorrie!
My wife and I stayed at the Longwood U B&B this past Saturday night after spending the day at Green Front. The B&B is beautiful, clean, and is in the heart of downtown Farmville (walking distance to restaurants and the main street), We got to the B&B after it was 'closed' and were greeted with a nice welcome package, fresh baked cookies, and friendly guests. We stayed in the Grant Room and the bed was very comfortable. They have several nice sitting rooms/TV rooms, have access to two different computers, and have WiFi that works great throughout the house. Breakfast the following morning was great. Frankie, the main cook was very friendly and knows how to serve up some Southern Hospitality. Highly recommended place to stay if traveling through central Virginia.
We were very pleasantly surprised how spacious and beautiful our room was. Updated shower also extra nice. Another surprise was the delicious breakfast prepared by Harland a local Attorney who likes to cook and prepares the breakfasts at the Inn. This was not just breakfast but a gourmet's delight. Berries (strawberries and balckberries) with fresh made whipped cream and a balsamic vinegar dressing (tastes wonderful). Fresh made French Toast with lavender butter and real warm maple syrup, yum. Harland prides himself in finding recipes to satisfy the most discerning palate. The Inn is very clean and the staff makes you feel right at home. We plan to make a return visit next year. Farmville has a great trail for those who like to hike and see nature.
The Longwood University Bed and Breakfast was built is 1880 and served as the residence for the local universities' Presidents for 80 years. Now it is an open to the public B&B with six rooms that have been remodeled to include fresh modern amenities, private baths, and historic antiques. There is no live in proprietor, but you will be greeted with a plate of brownies in the foyer, self service coffee, and access to the kitchen for glassware and ice. The morning breakfast was served in the dining room and included wonderful french toast, bacon and fresh strawberries. The property is walking distance to downtown furniture shopping and my favorite restaurant in the area, Charley's Waterfront Cafe. Highly recommended.
We traveled to Farmville this past weekend and stayed at the Longwood Bed & Breakfast. The main reason for our trip was to shop for furniture at Greenfront but we ended up having a great time walking around the beautiful town and campus plus taking in some great meals. The B&B is a wonderful house with a great location. Most everything is walkable. The rooms are big and nicely appointed with newly remodeled bathrooms. Everyone we met during our stay were very welcoming. We didn't know what to expect but on our return to Ohio we now have a very favorable opinion of Longwood B&B, Farmville and the people of Virginia. Don't hesitate to call Lorrie at the B&B. She is a great local resource.
I travel to Farmville several times a year on business. A work associate lives in Farmville and is friends with the innkeeper Lorrie. This B & B is charming in its simplicity and has a certain homey comfort that I enjoy. It is not fancy but has genuine character and a nice History. The beds are comfortable and the linen, towels, and amenities are plush. It is a bit noisy but its an old house. The small touches are nice. Things like real books on the bookshelves in the guest room, snacks placed in common areas, classic photos, and the house and town histories on the walls. It's not for everyone but you should experience it at least once. I will be back.
While attending a conference at Longwood University I decided to stay here instead of a chain hotel. It takes a lot for me to pass up my chain rewards points, but this was an amazingly perfect choice! My mother traveled with me and we each had wonderful rooms. The home was beautifully elegant with antiques mixed with comfy chairs, wi-if and luxuriously equipped bedrooms and baths. We enjoyed the sitting room upstairs, the living and dining rooms downstairs and the array of breakfast choices. Lorrie was a wonderful host! We hope to come back in warmer weather and sit on the porch. Not to be missed when staying in the Farmville area.
Located within two miles of Longwgood Gardens and other Brandywine Valley attractions this inn is a perfect place to experience a quintessential Bed and Breakfast getaway in Pennsylvania. The converted 1800's carriage house has three beautiful suites appointed with comfortable, charming antiques and warm details. John Haedrich is a gracious host and was able to make suggestions for sightseeing and add personal stories and fascinating insight into the culture and history of the area. The breakfast was elegantly served and homemade made . We enjoyed our stay and will visit again!
