Nicky and Rick are the most wonderful hosts--friendly, warm, and extremely helpful. The went out of their way to make us feel at home and pampered, and they were always available when we had a question, such as where to eat dinner or when breakfast would be served (they're very flexible about breakfast time). Their attention to detail is amazing--for...

Nicky and Rick are absolutely fabulous hosts and the breakfasts were the best meals we had each day. Not that we didn't enjoy the food in Blacksburg, it's just the breakfasts are that good. We loved our room (had a separate sitting room) and chatting with Nicky and Rick, and the dogs were an added bonus. If you are a...

I attended my daughter's graduation at VA Tech last week and was fortunate to get a room at this charming inn. Great linens, nice touches -- without the kitzch typical of B&B's (you know what i mean). Just quiet, incredibly close (7 min walk to the stadium) and with an amazing breakfast spread. They do it all well and with...

I was in my best friend's wedding and she her now hubby had rented out the entire Inn for the bridal party. It was such a great idea - we could all be close but we each had our separate bedrooms. It was a quick walk downtown which was great for those of us who wanted to go downtown. My...

My situation: Virginia Tech alumnus visiting Blacksburg for the first time in 15 years. During that previous visit, I stayed in the old Donaldson Brown hotel on campus which was very convenient, but nothing special. I very much wanted to stay in a location on this trip that was as convenient to both campus and downtown. A bit of research...

From the moment I walked in till we left everything was geared to my complete satisfaction. They had opened the pool early for us and even though too cool to get in we enjoyed a Friday evening get together there. Our group had booked the entire inn for our visit, filling all 8 rooms. Breakfast was fantastic each day. Nicky...
