Second time stay at the Clay Corner Inn. We moved our daughter into a new apartment for her third year at VT, and we needed a comfortable, quiet place to stay with our dog.

This was my third stay at the Inn. My daughter was involved in a VT program and remained in the dorms so I had the room to myself. However, Rick and Nicky were ever the attentive hosts and invited me to the main house for pizza and wine to watch the Opening Ceremonies of the Olympics on the large flat... More

My 17 year old son wanted to take some of his friends to spend the weekend in Blacksburg and the Clay Corner Inn was the perfect venue!

This is an excellent B&B - friendly hosts, outstanding food, nice rooms and a very nice pool/patio area. Blacksburg is a perfect destination for a weekend away even if you have no affiliation with the University. Easy walking distance to good restaurants, and a quick drive to some great hiking and tubing down the river.

We stayed 3 nights and it was wonderful. Not only were the accommodations quite spacious and comfortable, the breakfasts were delicious. The hosts very quickly resolved any issues we had and accommodated us for breakfast one morning when we had to be out of the door before breakfast was served.
