“Old-fashioned charm meets modern luxury - simply exquisite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2012

You would never know that this home was over 100-years old. Everything in the house - from the bathtubs to the radiatiors to the stainglass windows - looks brand new. The owners, Linda and Bernie, have left no detail overlooked. We had a very peaceful, romantic, and magical experience at The Oaks. I highly recommend staying at The Oaks whenever you can, but especially during the holiday season.

We are very pleased that you enjoyed your stay at The Oaks. We offer Victorian charm with all the modern amenities. The next time you decide to stay, perhaps it will be during the warmer months when our gardens are in full bloom. We wish you a very happy and healthy New Year.

We planned to meet up with my parents for an early Christmas as it is halfway drive for both of us with them coming from KY and us from Northern VA. We have stayed in lots of hotels over the years but this was the first B&B experience for all of us. We all LOVED it! Linda and Bernie are very gracious hosts and made us feel at home immediately. Our rooms were comfortable and clean. We loved the decor of the Inn and you can tell they have put a lot of thought into the decorating. Loved the garden out back. Breakfast was delicious. I cannot say enough good things about this place. I wish we could have stayed a little longer to explore the area but will definitely go back. Yes, you can stay in any number of cookie cutter hotels or motels in the Blacksburg/Christiansburg area but the question is WHY would you want to when you can stay in a beautiful, unique B&B such as The Oaks. Thank you for an AWESOME visit Linda and Bernie.

We received a gift certificate from our son for a stay at "The Oaks"., which was a weekend to always remember. Linda and Bernie were so gracious and welcoming. They were extremely knowledgeable regarding all nearby activities and wonderful restaurants.. The Inn is beautiful, the breakfast delicious, and the cookie jar is always filled with homemade treats. Everything was beyond our expectations and therefore, we will return in the spring to enjoy their beautiful garden. Linda and Mark

Room Tip: The Julia Pierce room was very nice size with great fireplace and bathroom.

We spent two nights at the Oaks Victorian Inn in October 2012. The hosts, Linda and Bernie, were extremely nice and friendly. The rooms were comfortable, clean and all the interior was held in a lovely and cosy style. The breakfast was delicious and it was fun to share table with other guests and getting to know some people. Since the weather was not very good at the time of our stay, Linda and Bernie gave us some useful recommendations about the area and what we could do. We had a great time at the Oaks Victorian Inn!

We enjoyed our stay at this beautiful, historic home. Our room was large, comfortable and well equipped. It was elegantly finished down to the table setting. Our hosts were delightful and made us feel very comfortable in their delightful home.
Breakfast was gourmet and absolutely delicious. Although this was October, the gardens were wonderful. I cannot wait to see them in warmer weather. We will certainly return to this perfect retreat!

Thank you for taking the time to post your wonderful review. So pleased that you enjoyed the gardens though they were winding down as winter approaches. There are lots of plans for making the gardens bigger and better as we have the honor of being part of the 2013 Friends of The Library Garden Tour next July. We look forward to seeing you in the future.

From the moment we arrived, we felt very welcomed. The room, Julia Pierce, was better than expected. The room was spacious and the attached bathroom was very nice. A tub for two and a walk-in shower! The time of our stay allowed us to use both the A/C and the gas fireplace located in our room. Very cozy! One rainy afternoon, we chose a movie from the library and watched it in our room. The breakfasts were amazing and the coffee was perfect. Just wish we could have stayed longer! Bernie and Linda were wonderful hosts. Thank you for opening your home to all!

When traveling to Savannah last month, we decided to break up the drive and were very pleased that we found The Oaks. It’s just off of I-81 and the perfect midway point from our home in Westchester.. When we arrived Linda and Bernie invited us into their home and sat and talked with us for a few minutes. That was the first time we had experienced that type of welcome to a B+B and made us feel like they really care about their guests. They asked us if we needed help with dinner then told us that breakfast was at 9 and asked if that time worked for us and did we have had any special dietary needs. We had a long drive ahead of us the next day and asked if there was any way we could have an early breakfast. Linda told us that that was no problem. There was no “Breakfast is only at 9 sharp and don’t be late”. The next morning, at 7:00, we were treated to a wonderful breakfast and some coffee to go. Just an F.Y.I., Linda makes a homemade granola that is absolutely delicious. We have often toyed with the idea of someday running a B+B but are leery of inviting complete strangers into out home so our favorite question to our hosts is “Do you ever get guests that are impossible to please or just plain weird?“ I imagine it’s kind of scary knowing that anything can be posted in a review for the whole internet world to see. Some of the answers we have gotten have been doozies. Linda shared a couple of stories that were funny, a bit offbeat, but in no way malicious or unkind. And P.S. I do agree …the cookies are great.

Room Tip: Every room is different. Some have fireplaces. Some have jacuzzis. They are all gorgeous. The cottag...

Thank you for your wonderful review. What a nice surprise when you called and booked a room on your way back north. Too bad it was a little nippy to sit out on the porch but we really enjoyed sharing a glass of wine with you in the library. Hope to see you next time you travel to or through Virginia.
