Located just minutes from Liberty University, the world’s largest Christian university, the Kirkley is an affordable-luxury boutique hotel with a restaurant, on-site catering facilities, and an off-site catering business. Our property is food-centric and features regional and farm to table cuisine. Central Virginia is rich in grass fed meats, artisanal cheeses and dairy products, farm fresh vegetables, fruit orchards, craft beers, wineries, and cider houses.

The Greater Lynchburg area is a wonderful place to live, work, worship, and play.
