Welcome to Our Home
With a long and colorful history of Southern hospitality in Lexington, let the Hicklin family host your group at Ryland House. Located on Main Street, our quiet, cheerful home is walking distance to Wentworth Military Academy and the Immaculate Conception Catholic Church.
Ryland House, a jewel of Neoclassic Revival design, was built in late 1911 by Dr. Caius Tacitus Ryland, one of Lexington’s most beloved family doctors, and his wife, Betty Belle. The house underwent renovation from 1999-2001; the home has three full bathrooms, all completely renovated, as well as five lovely guest rooms decorated in the delightful colors of Scandinavia. New basement suite available. Guests may relax in front of the fireplace in winter, the front porch in mild weather, or enjoy a book in the new reading room.
This was the perfect graduation weekend and you made it happen. The memory of our son's event and the elegance around it will be remembered fondly by all of us.
What a lovely B&B - and a great way to start our 50th reunion, gathered all here with a house full of old friends. Thank you for your wonderful hospitality.
What a wonderful O'nite, it was so like being at home (even better than home). Thank you!
This was my first B&B experience and surely the best! The history, not only here at Dr. Ryland's but the town's civil war history is profound. We were so fortunate to experience it for ourselves.
Thank you so much for such a nice, peaceful getaway. Your hospitality was wonderful, so was the breakfast.
Our first time in a B&B, we loved it! Fabulous bed and delicious breakfast…plus your charming company can't be beat. We will be back!

Thank you so much for your hospitality. We had a wonderful time at the Ryland House B&B for our 3rd anniversary. It was peaceful and relaxing which is exactly what we wanted. The cheese puff for breakfast was so delicious. Thanks for everything.

It was our lucky day when we were given the Ryland House name and number! Thank goodness, you had room for us. This has been a very special experience for us. You have graciously provided a beautiful environment within the walls of your home. What a gift that is to share with all who stay here. We loved our room, The Library, and the delicious breakfasts. Already we are anticipating our time in Lexington a year from now. Thanks for everything!

I just wanted to express our appreciation for your wonderful hospitality during our recent stay. The private tour of your mother's home was a special added treat. I love history so this was a wonderful experience.
