Very interesting lay out for a B&B, It consists of three homes that are managed as one property. The backyard has a common deck and swimming pool as well as a grill. We stayed in the winter so did not get a chance to try out the pool. We were only here for the night as we had come in... More

This was ours second time staying at the Clay Corner Inn. Both times have been great. As a Hokie Alum, who used to live around the corner on Houston Street, I would continually walk past years ago and never know what a gem was hidden. The new owners Nikki and Rick have done a wonderful job transforming the Inn to... More

From the reviews we were expecting something a little nicer. The room was OK. Not as nice as our room at home. The owners were away, which was part of the attraction.Breakfast was good, but nothing special.

We have stayed at Clay Corner Inn multiple times during our visits to VT to spend time with our daughter. The innkeepers are extremely hospitable and the rooms are spacious and no detail is overlooked. Every morning we are treated to a wonderful breakfast of fresh fruit, homemade cereal and a hot dish (this time it was wonderful huevos rancheros!).... More

My husband and I loved our stay at clay corner inn. The outdoor sitting areas were lovely and tranquil. We had a great nights sleep on the super comfortable bed. The owners were very warm and friendly but gave us space and privacy. The breakfast was delicious and healthy. We can't wait to return for another visit.

Clay Corner is a lovely bed and breakfast, walking distance from VT campus. We stayed in a suite and were completely accommodated with everything we could possibly need. Though we didn't have opportunity to use it, they have a beautiful in-ground pool and relaxing yoga area. It's a very clean and comfortable, homey environment, and Nicky and Rick are very... More

We spent a Saturday night here. This B & B has eight rooms spread over three adjacent houses. It's well-managed, and the location in Blacksburg is perfect---in a quiet residential area, but only a 5 minute walk to Virginia Tech and 5-10 minute walk to the shops and restaurants along Main Street. There is a small pool here, which makes... More
