AND DON'T FORGET--
WE ARE PET FRIENDLY!
This is Roosevelt (Rosie), our elderly rescued basset hound. He's the Gounds Maintenance Officer here at The Country Bumpkins B&B.
Take a tip from Rosie--
he kicks back and relaxes most of the time!
Our check-in time is 4 PM;
check-out time is 10AM.
Life is full of unforgetable experiences.
Leisurely drive the Blue Ridge Parkway; paddle the waters of the James River; jet ski or catch bass at Smith Mountain Lake; hike the Appalachian Trail; check out the Natural Bridge; climb Sharp Top Mountain; discover amazing local fare at our restaurants; taste wines along the Wine Trail; travel the Bedford Artisan Trail; visit Thomas Jefferson's Poplar Forest; stand in awe at the National D-Day Memorial.
Collect your memories here!
We will be closing our doors in November 2015, selling our home and the B&B, and moving out of state. So, if you've been wanting to visit us, now is the time to make your reservations!
See all of our new reviews at TripAdvisor.com and FlipKey.com, and come stay with us at
The Country Bumpkins B&B and Vacation Rental.
In 2015 we are NOT increasing our base rate of $105/night (2 persons), but a three-night minimum stay is required.
Additional people in the party and/or
pets are $10 each/night. And, VA
lodging tax (10.3%) applies as well.
Don't forget, we are an easy drive to Liberty University and Lynchburg College in Lynchburg, VA. Plan to come visit us for special events--orientations, Parent's Weekend, graduations, and weddings--you'll be conveniently close. . . but just slightly removed for a little peace and quiet.
The Town of Bedford is 115 miles west of Richmond, the State Capital; 210 miles southwest of Washington, DC; 215 miles west of Norfolk; and within a day's drive from Atlanta and New York.
From the north--I-81 to exit 188 (Buena Vista, US Hwy. 60 E) to State Hwy. 501 towards Lynchburg. You'll be driving over the mountains. Look for Hwy. 122 S (Big Island) towards Bedford; turn R on Hwy. 122 S. We are about 10-11 miles on the left. When you see Stoney Brook Rd. on left, slow down! We are the first driveway on the left. Our mailbox is a marker on the right--7765.
From the east--From Lynchburg, VA, take Hwy. 460 W towards Roanoke. Go about 25 miles past Lowe's and Walmart on the right. Look for right exit that says Hwy. 122 N (Big Island); stay in right lane and turn right at the light (CVS). You are on Independence Ave. which is 122 N. Stay on this road for approximately 9 miles. We are on the right with a sign at the base of our driveway. You will not be able to see the house from the road.
GPS are great, but cannot be trusted in these parts! We know some short cuts when you get here, but if you don't look at the old fashioned map, you will see more countryside than you probably want to! Particularly not so great, if you are arriving after a hard day's drive or after dark!
Just as soon as you know your plans, call or email us. You can also access our up-to-date Availability Calendar at any time by visiting our property listing on FlipKey.com or TripAdvisor.com.
