Located in the heart of downtown Fincastle, Virginia, the 25 E. Main Bed and Breakfast fits its surroundings perfectly.
The historic home on main street is quiet and quaint, much like a Norman Rockwell painting come to life.
In this adorable, small town, people still sit on park benches and stroll along Main Street to shop at locally owned businesses.
Anyway, back to the 25 E. Main Bed and Breakfast, and the kindness shared by its owners, Mitch and Bobbie.
About 25 E. Main Bed and Breakfast
The home, built in 1870, has been in Bobbie’s family for three generations.
As a child, she spent holidays and many other days here with her grandparents and extended family.
The home’s antique furnishings come from her family, though they are not stuffy and untouchable. It’s warm and inviting, definitely an extension of the owner’s hearts.
Accommodations at the Fincastle B&B
The 25 E. Main Bed and Breakfast offers three bedrooms which can be booked through BedandBreakfast.com.

The bathroom has heated floors and a zero entry shower room with two rain shower heads! This room is handicap accessible.
The Pendleton Room: On the second floor, above the Waid Room, the Pendleton is equally spacious, decorated in darker colors reminiscent of a gentleman’s library.
Period antiques create the perfect setting for a visit to Fincastle.
The large, private bathroom has a tub/shower combo.
The Mitchell Room: This two-room suite offers two beds and a bathroom.
The bathroom is smaller than the others, but the super-sized suite is quite inviting.
With loads of windows, it’s bright and airy, a dream for travelers looking for space and comfort.
Beyond the accommodations, the 25 E. Main Bed and Breakfast has a comfortable living/dining room on the main floor where breakfast is sometimes served.
About our stay
When we arrived, Mitch, Bobbie and their sweet puppy, Lily, greeted us. It felt very much like going home to family with hugs and warm smiles.
After the introductions, we took a quick tour of the house.
Since we were the inn’s only guests that night, they gave us a choice of rooms. Ellie — no surprise — picked the Waid Room and its fabulous shower!
Owner Bobbie says, “While we can’t always offer guests a choice of rooms, we will whenever bookings allow.”
Ellie and I quickly settled in and then headed off to dinner.
When we returned to the 25 E. Main Bed and Breakfast, a bedtime snack of fresh popped popcorn was waiting for us. We also had fresh beverages in our mini-fridge, a selection of coffee and tea, and candy — for when the late night sweet tooth set in.
During our stay, we enjoyed the private back yard, with multiple seating areas, gardens and a comfortable covered porch.
The front porch also had relaxing seating areas. Ellie was particularly fond of the porch swing!
As lifelong residents of the area, Mitch and Bobbie know the area well and want guests to feel like they belong, too.
When I had car trouble, they recommended a reputable repair shop. T
hey invited us to join them in the garden to pick blackberries and veggies.
They let Ellie play with Lily all she wanted.
Oh — one more thing. 25 E. Main St. B&B has the best doorbell ever!
