“Great Escape!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

We could not have picked a more perfect place to stay, our big football weekend at VT. The Inn is a short drive from Blacksburg and a quiet oasis to return to after a fun filled football game! Bernie and Linda were wonderful hosts in their beautiful Inn. The rooms were immaculate. The Inn was filled with the aroma of LInda's great cooking coming from the kitchen. Breakfast was elegant and we look forward to returning. Loved hanging out on the wonderful porch. Thanks Bernie & Linda for such a wonderful time.

Room Tip: Stayed in the Julia Pierce room, beautiful bathroom.

Football weekends are always a lot of fun. Thank you for choosing The Oaks as your oasis. Next time you come you'll see changes on the porch. We got some great new furniture. Check out The Oaks Victorian Inn facebook page and you'll see the new love seat. We look forward to seeing you for another football weekend or just a great escape.

The Oaks was a pleasant surprise, with the room spacious and comfortable, the breakfast a delight, and the two owners friendly and knowledgeable about the area. We were very pleased with everything about the B & B. It is in the top tier of the many B & B's we have visited in the past. A strong recommendation to those who will be traveling to or through the area.

We like surprises and thrilled that we were one of them and that you enjoyed the breakfasts as well as the B&B. We hope to see you the next time you are in the Blue Ridge mountains.

Finally, on this trip I was able to not only get my spouse to consider a B & B but to stay at one ---- I'm so happy it was the Oaks. Linda & Bernie are the perfect hosts. We very much appreciated the cleaniness of the property. And the food what's not to like ---- best breakfast we've had since we left Vermont.
Thanks for our hosts for making this a wonderful stay.

We can't remember enjoying a vacation more! After 34 years of marriage, it was the perfect romantic getaway. Linda and Bernie were the perfect hostess and host ... warm and welcoming without being intrusive. The accomodations were perfect. We stayed in the Alexandria, and will request the same room the next time. We are already looking forward to a winter getaway so that we can enjoy the fireplaces!

Linda and I are so happy that you enjoyed your stay at The Oaks and have decided to return. You can curl up with a book and glass of wine in front of the fire in our cozy library. The Julia Pierce has a fireplace and jacuzzi for two. You may want to consider it for your next stay. It is one of our most romantic rooms. Looking forward to seeing you soon.

My wife and I enjoyed a honeymoon weekend stay in the Garden Cottage. The cottage is nestled in the garden near the koi pond with its own private outdoor hot tub. The interior was cozy and comfortable with the bed in a loft above the sitting room. Linda's breakfasts were delicious, and Bernie and Linda were gracious hosts. We look forward to a return visit.

Thank you for taking the time to post your wonderful review. The Cottage is a guest favorite because of the hot tub and sauna. Linda prides herself on her breakfasts and plates do come back empty. We look forward to being your hosts again the next time you are in the Blue Ridge mountains.

Linda and Bernie have a beautiful Victorian home in which every detail is perfect. We stayed in Sir Christopher's Room which was spacious, well-appointed and comfortable. The breakfasts were creative and gourmet, and the guests were interesting for table conversation. We enjoyed sitting on the porch or patio with a cup of coffee and a homemade cookie and looking at the variety of plants in the well-landscaped yard and garden. The location is perfect for jumping off to Blacksburg for a football game or just relaxing and enjoying the number of good restaurants in the area. We definitely plan another stay next time we are in the area! Highly recommended!

Room Tip: Sir Christopher's Room on the ground floor was a great choice. Others liked the upstairs bedroo...

Linda and Bernie were fantastic hosts and the house is absolutely amazing. Our room was so lovely and personailzed with a little note. Home made cookies and 24 hour sherry. Love that we had a fire place in the room, we stayed in the Bonnie Victoria. Very reasonably priced and lovely gormet breakfast. I will definitely be back if I'm in the area!
