Longwood University Bed and Breakfast
We biked the High Bridge Trail and wanted a place to stay nearby. The Longwood University B&B is close enough that we biked to the trailhead. On the night we stayed there were two other rooms rented and we still felt we had the entire place to ourselves. The kitchen was stocked with everything you could want for breakfast and mattress was just what we needed after the 26-mile bike. Would love to come back with friends and rent the entire house!
Everyone was extremely gracious and helpful - especially Lorrie, the innkeeper. She is a gold mine of information on nearby delicious bakery, restaurants - and most importantly, shopping! Perfect spot for a romantic getaway or a weekend shopping trip with girlfriends!
Nothing but Praise! I reserved the Cunningham room for my wife and her sister, who were in town for a one-night stay. They both thoroughly enjoyed this B&B, the Sunday morning breakfast that was served, and the friendly staff. Lorrie, the manager, also was great in helping arrange for some treats dropped off to their room on Saturday evening.
We traveled to Farmville, VA with the sole purpose of bicycle riding on the High Bridge State Park. We found the Longwood B&B, convenient to the trail, a very comfortable and welcoming place to stay. They have good parking, inviting verandas and sitting rooms and delicious breakfasts. The director, Lorrie Watson also suggested "Date Night" at Charley's Waterfront for our dinner - an easy stroll along the trail to the Appomatox River and the cafe. The trail was beautiful on the two fall days that we cycled - and we learned a lot about the history of the area.
Wonderful B & B! Quiet, comfortable, well appointed suite in a redone carriage house. John and Barbara were gracious hosts, and looked after our every need. Terrific weekend! The decorating and attention to detail were top notch, and the central location was convenient. We will be back
Perfect location for our two-day trip of exploring neighboring museums and gardens. (Brandywine River Museum, Winterthur, Nemours, Longwood Gardens, etc.,are all nearby.) At the end of each exhausting day of touring, the Longwood B&B served as a relaxing and comfortable haven for us. Our suite was roomy and clean. The flower-filled grounds were lovely and could be appreciated during an evening stroll. Also, the delicious breakfasts were prepared with care by our accommodating hosts. Thank you, John and Barbara!
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!
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.
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.
This is a landmark house with lovelylfurnishings...a great find for anyone heading to Farmville to shop for furniture, to check out Longwood University or ride the High Bridge Rail Trail. The management does a good job of oversight. We landed there when the cook was on vacation and the manager was off, so our only contact was by phone; but notes and keys were provided and food for breakfast was in the refrigerator.
We wanted a B&B near Longwood Gardens. We found this B& B to fit the bill perfectly.The accommodations were excellent. We had lots of room, a comfortable bed, and great breakfasts. John was helpful with what to see in the area and where to dine. We would definitely recommend this B&B.
This is what we all hope for in a B & B. Ideally located for exploring the Brandywine valley. John and Barbara are gracious hosts and great sources of inside information. John cooks a delicious breakfast and our room was spacious and comfortable. Everything is wonderful.
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.
