“Wonderful B&B”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2014

We stayed only one night. Lived the room. Nice furnishings and enjoyed having out own bath. Proprietors are very friendly. Nice having the menus in the parlor for local restaurants. Beautiful gardens. Highly recommended for couples.

My wife and I stayed one night at The Oaks en route to Urbanna, VA. We enjoyed our experience there so much we rebooked upon departure and stayed there again on the trip home the following week. Linda and Bernie have thought of everything: comfortable private rooms, modern private baths, and fantastic breakfast fare. Far too many B&Bs forget what that second "B" stands for, resulting in an unhappy experience. This isn't the case at the Oaks. You will be presented with a gourmet breakfast in three courses and will depart wishing you could stay another night.

The property is exactly as advertised, a Victorian home on a large corner property in the quaint little town of Christiansburg. The oaks that gave the Oaks its name are huge and ancient, and lend the entire property a stately look and ample summer shade. Linda mentioned the gardens are her personal project, and her love of working the soil is evident in their beauty.

My wife and I heartily recommend a stay at the Oaks for anyone journeying along I-81 through southwest Virginia. The property is about 8 minutes off the freeway, and convenient to the Virginia Tech campus in nearby Blacksburg.

Room Tip: We stayed both times in Sir Christopher's Chamber, and can only comment on that room. It was ex...

We stayed in Christiansburg a couple of weeks ago for Radford's graduation and this place was a real treat!

My husband and I stayed in the garden cottage, which is detached from the actual in, but located in the garden. It was gorgeous! It was a small cottage with a sitting area, tv, kitchenette, full bed in the loft, full bathroom complete with a sauna and the best part was the hot tub on the wrap around patio! So cool! Our room was equipped with anything we could possibly need, candies, tea, bottled water, soda, towels etc!

The house itself was stunning, so cool to walk around and discover different rooms and historic architecture. The B&B has a beautiful wrap around porch with rocking chairs. There is a jar in the entrance area with fresh baked cookies, along with everything that you need to prepare a cup of tea. The upstairs hallway had a decanter of sherry set up. The stained glass is beautiful!

Breakfast was delicious, we had fresh bread and fruit and a quiche as the main course. It was a delightful stay, I wish we were able to stay for more that one night! I would highly recommend this B&B for anyone who wants to spend a quiet weekend in south west Virginia!

This is the second time we havestayed at the Oaks Victorian Inn in Christiansburg, VA. The inn is an old mansion situated on a wonderfully landscapedlot with huge oak trees. Bernie and Linda are the Owner-Inkeeers and Eaddie is the wonderful helper. The accomodations are great and really beautiful. Linda prepares really extraordinary breakfasts. The menu is what occurs to her when she sees what is available in the shops and the guest's food preferences. Bernie and Linda know all of the sights and restaurants , etc. within 50 miles. A late afternoon on their porch is just delightful. We also meet the nices, most interesting people there. You will very much enjoy your stay at Bernie and Lind's home.

Room Tip: Goof above--there is no fitness center

What a great B&B. Gorgeous place and extraordinary hospitality. Beautiful rooms and garden. Loved the rockers on the front porch too. Sorry we could stay only one night. We'll tell all of our friends. Thanks Linda & Bernie!

The Oaks Victorian Inn is the finest bed and breakfast in southwest Virginia, if not in the entire state. This historic home is immaculate, in beautiful condition, and the owners (who live on-site in the third-floor garret) are warm, hospitable, and knowledgable. Linda, the hostess, puts out a delicious breakfast in a sunny room in which all guests have an opportunity to meet and mingle during the three-course breakfast. We have stayed at The Oaks four or five times over the last 12 years and have never been disappointed.

Room Tip: We especially like the Julia Pierce Room, front corner room on the second floor.

Thank you for a wonderful stay! This place was truly a gem! The Julia Pierce room was very charming, cozy, warm, inviting, spacious, and clean. The breakfast was delicious. The house was beautiful inside and outside. Thank you for your wonderful hospitality. I'm enjoying my new robe too!
