 On the crest of a field in the small town

of Bedford, Virginia, our Victorian home 

sits proudly alongside stately walnut and squirrel-loving pecan trees. The front porch, wrapping the house like an apron, 

has been bathed in golden sunrises for 

over a century.

About Us


Kathy and John Graham and their two youngsters moved into Bedford and this lovely old house in 1995.  Once the kids got a bit older, Kathy agreed that John's idea of sharing their home as a B&B might be a fun thing to do, and in 2003, The Forget-Me-Not B&B was born.  Named for Kathy's favorite little flowers and the sweet simplicity they represent, their one room B&B has become quite popular through the years.  

Within walking distance to town and all its restaurants, antique stores and art galleries and close to the D-Day Memorial, Thomas Jefferson's Poplar Forest and the Blue Ridge Parkway, The Forget-Me-Not B&B is in a perfect location.  

Built in 1906 by the Burks family, the Grahams are the third owners of this grand home and proud to share pictures and information of its history.  

When they are not visiting with guests, Kathy shares yoga classes in her nearby studio and John raises fish in their backyard fish farm.
