As a surprise, I drove my boyfriend out to spend the day at Lynchburg and because he misses the farm back home in WI, I chose the Old Dr. Cox Farm B&B. We were so happy with the farm, we can't wait to go back again. It was warm, cozy, relaxing and comfortable. The couple who runs the farm are sweet, friendly, generous and genuine. We highly recommend the B&B. We will see them again soon!
