“THIS is what BnBs are all about!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

My girlfriend and i stayed at this BnB driving back to Atlanta from a weekend wedding in Pennsylvania. We didn't have reservations. We literally pulled off the highway to eat dinner fairly late at night near Roanoke, and decided we were tired to continue driving, so we started pulling up nearby hotels and BnBs on the 'ol smart phone (thank god for modern technology, eh?). We stumbled across this BnB in Christiansburg, and it looked great. So we called, and thankfully they had the Garden Cottage still available. So we thought it would be worthwhile to drive a bit further to stay there......and SO glad we did. Upon entering the home, we knew we made the right choice. The home was GORGEOUS. We were immediately greeted by Linda and given the low-down on the house, even despite it being pretty late at this point. While we would've liked to stay in the main house due to the ornate beauty and experience of it, we had a great time in the Garden Cottage. It's far enough away from the main house and has enough trees/bushes around it to feel private. Being able to enjoy the outdoor private hot tub that comes with the cottage was well worth not being in the main house! We definitely took advantage. The cottage itself was small and cozy and full of charm. Almost felt like being a kid again, with the vertical ladder going up to the bedroom loft. The kitchenette was tiny, but suitable and sufficient. The bathroom was great, with the sauna. Definitely a fun little abode to stay in for a night or two. Breakfast the next morning was DELICIOUS, and service was excellent. Linda and Bernie were great, made us feel very welcome, and enjoyed talking with them. A 10 out of 10.

We found this lovely B & B on the way home from a very long cross-country drive and called after 8PM to see if a room was available. Linda and Bernie stayed up until after 10PM to welcome us and gave us a tour of their lovely home. The rooms are large and beautifully decorated and our bed was divine! The bathrooms are luxurious and beckoning. Breakfast was wonderfully as was our conversation with Linda and Bernie. This was the absolute cleaning home or B & B I have ever seen. Don't miss the opportunity to stay at this amazing B and B. It deserves 10 stars but we were limited to 5!

What a fantastic get-away. We were guests many years ago and the charm has increased exponentially. Linda & Bernie's love for the Oaks exudes from their smiles and attention to detail. They made us love it all over again. We look forward to the Oaks cook book. Thanks ofr you hospitality. Perhaps in the futute you might consider a room with the motif of the Red Soxs...100 years ago!

Room Tip: We have stayed in 3 different rooms, all were marvelous. oops, they don't have a fitness center...

My husband and I stayed at The Oaks Victorian Inn two nights over New Years for our 20th wedding anniversary. There is only one word to describe our stay . . . PERFECT! What a gorgeous Inn. The accommodations and food could not have been better and Bernie & Linda are absolutely the cutest Innkeepers around! ;-)

Room Tip: We have actually stayed in two rooms at The Oaks and both were lovely. This trip, we stayed in the...

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.
