Tolley House – About Our Historic Landmark

The Tolley House was built in the mid 19th century for Lem Motlow, who then deeded the house to his sister, Lily Motlow Tolley.

Lily was married to John Tolley, and their son Lem (the second master distiller of Jack Daniel’s, after Jack Daniel himself), along with his wife Ethel, lived in the house until the 1980’s.

The house was renovated and later sold to Homer and Nelda Campbell, who lived there for 19 years until selling it to the current owners.

The Tolley House is an integral part of Lynchburg’s rich cultural history, and your stay here will be truly memorable.

“Great Bed & Breakfast! We called the day before and were able to get reservations, sure glad it worked out, what a beautiful historic house in Lynchburg! Vicky is great and the house is spectacular! We stayed in Lems room and it was so nice, the windows make that room, great views. Breakfast was delicious! You must stay there if you’re going to Lynchburg! Just FYI don’t try to go eat dinner after 5 because all the restaurants close early, really.” – FPK, Trip Advisor
