The place to stay in Appomattox

Pros: Just about everything - especially the young couple running it. Reasonably priced.
Cons: The beds may be a bit hard for some people - suited me fine, but not my wife. The dining areas could stand some cosmetic improvements.
Location: 3 miles from Appomattox Court House National Historic Park. Museum of the Confederacy near the park. High Bridge Trail State Park nearby.
This is the place to stay and/or eat whenever you're in the Appomattox area (for example, visiting the Appomattox Court House National Historic Park, which is well worth your time and only 3 miles away). The house itself is classic southern, built in the late 1800s and operated as an inn ever since. The young new owners are eager to please and every bit as charming as the house. The place is nicely decorated in turn of the century antiques and furnishings , but has all of the expected modern amenities, even if somewhat improvised (as would be expected in an old house). 6 guest rooms, all up a narrow stair case, creaky pinewood floors and all. It's off the highway in "downtown" and appropriately quiet. The dining areas could stand some cosmetic improvements, but the food was top-notch and reasonably priced, and the service was as southern-charmed as one could hope for. My wife now knows that grits really can be delicious. And it must be the place to go for Sunday brunch - as we were leaving Sunday morning, the owner/chef told me they were expecting 70-90 people that day, which would be an overflow crowd.
