We stayed at the Clay Corner Inn for my daughter's graduation. The staff was wonderful and went out of their way to make us feel welcome and comfortable. We stayed for three nights and enjoyed breakfast every morning. We were in the Magnolia House and were able to use the kitchen and living area every day.

We are so pleased you enjoyed this special weekend with us. Hopefully we will have you return one Summer to relax and enjoy our pool and garden area. See you then! Nicky More

First, let me say that the hostess, Nicky, and her husband, Rick, were absolutely marvelous. The breakfast , croque madame, that she and staff prepared and served (on the terrace, which made it especially delightful) was beyond wonderful. The room was charming and exceptionally clean. The air-conditioning wasn't on yet, and one of our vents was stuck shut; there was... More

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...

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.
