The Federal Crest Inn, built in 1909, is an
elegant Georgian Revival home providing bed and breakfast
lodging in Lynchburg in Central Virginia.
As one strolls through the home, you will
see examples of the structure's original charms in its
magnificent woodwork and classical columns that lead to the
grand central staircase. Unique mantels grace all seven
fireplaces found in the parlour, library, dining room, and
bedrooms. A delightful departure from the eighteenth-century,
the "50's Cafe" off the dining room delights guests
as well as gives the opportunity to tour the third floor,
where the original owner constructed a stage for his children
to give plays.
During your stay, innkeepers Ann and Phil
will treat you like royalty. Refreshments upon arrival, night
beverages, bedroom snack baskets, and many more amenities will
make your stay at the Federal Crest as pleasant as possible.
Choose one of the inn's beautiful bedrooms and snuggle up in
the cozy down comforter or sit and read by your own private,
romantic fireplace. All accommodations on the second floor
include queen-size beds and private baths. Other country inn
amenities include central air, bedroom gas log fireplaces,
telephones, cable television, free wireless Internet
connection, clock radios, reading materials and good lamps,
comfortable chairs, luxury linens and robes, complimentary
toiletries, and a Jacuzzi.
In the morning, you may enjoy early morning
coffee and juices and dine on a hot, satisfying Federal Crest
breakfast. Enjoy soft candlelight and music with fine crystal,
silver, and china, as your morning meal is considered special
at this inn. After breakfast, choose a remembrance from the
Cafe Gift Shop, play the jukebox at the Fifties Cafe, or visit
the third-floor Eagles Nest Theater to watch a special event
on the large 60-inch television.
