The proprietors, Nikki and her husband, and their two dogs, are marvelous hosts. We were well cared for. The house is nicely decorated, airy, and cozy. The bed was very comfortable, and my wife loved the sheets. They keep a nearly constant stock of cookies and/or candies in the lounge area. They have indoor and outdoor seating, which is very...

Stayed here while visiting Virginia Tech with my son, It was such a convenient short walk from campus. Owner Nicky was very welcoming, personable and friendly. Rooms were clean and decorative with a home like feel and with personal touches like homemade cookies, tea and libraries of books, movies, classic games and video games for use. Also with a cosy...

My husband and I have stayed at the Clay Corner Inn two times, both while visiting our niece who attends Virginia Tech. The inn is clean and comfortable and so convenient to campus and to downtown. We especially appreciate the extra touches the innkeepers provide...like fresh-baked cookies available in the common area, the access to your own kitchen, the lovely... More

Wasn't that just the perfect day, sitting on the porch with the warm sun, watching the birds in our little hide-away back garden. I just love enjoying this area or the ZenGarden so secluded and relaxing. We are pleased you had time, while your daughter was off doing her thing to sit with us and relax. It was great having...

The Clay Corner Inn is a lovely B&B with super location in Blacksburg right down the street from VT. The hospitality was warm, breakfast yummy and accommodations very comfortable. We had food allergies within our party and the owners took time to understand and accommodate without any issues.

My husband and I stayed here for just one night to visit our son who is a freshman at Tech. It is the most convenient lodging to his dorm (one block away!). It was such a comfortable setting and the staff could not have been nicer - I did not want to leave! The breakfast was excellent. They have many... More

I visited on business and wish I could have stayed longer to enjoy the Inn and all it has to offer. I came in late and had to leave very early the next morning for an event. Aware that I would not be able to join them for breakfast, Nicky had a quick breakfast waiting for me in the kitchen... More

Nicky and Rick provide a spacious, quiet and wonderful experience at their B&B. The rooms have all the amenities of a large hotel, with the attention to detail and terrific breakfasts associated with smaller inns. The inn is peaceful, quiet and there is enough living space to hold meetings or to simply relax in rooms other than in the bedrooms.... More
