“Perfect snowy getaway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

We found out about the Inn through their deal on Living Social and couldn't believe our good fortune- I haven't stopped gushing about the place since we left! We made it to the Inn despite a snowstorm, and felt so very welcome thanks to Jimm and Janet's fantastic hospitality. Delicious homemade cookies, ever-ready coffee and tea, and luxuriously appointed rooms (we even purchased a set of their super-soft sheets for home!) helped us settle in quickly. Thanks to a snow-related cancellation, Jimm offered us a free upgrade to a larger room.

The snowy mountain views from our room were stunning and Janet's breakfast was DELICIOUS! I serendipitously bumped into an old friend from college during our stay and we enjoyed catching up over the elegant breakfast fare served in a gracious, relaxing environment. Jimm was able to recommend several options for adventuring around the Pearisburg/Giles County area as well as excellent dining options. We especially enjoyed The Bank in downtown Pearisburg for dinner.

I can't say enough fabulous things about our experience and our hosts- I accidentally left behind a sweatshirt in our room, and Jimm and Janet were kind enough to mail it home to me, without delay and free of charge. I am so grateful for their kindness and attention to detail!

Book a visit to the Inn today. You won't be disappointed! We can't wait to visit again!

Let me preface by saying that my wife and I have never stayed at a bed and breakfast before. Looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of DC, we booked a stay at the Inn at Riverbend to celebrate our one year wedding anniversary.

Things We Loved:
1. Janet and Jimm (with two m's)
They were amazing hosts. From the spectacular breakfasts, homemade cookies, and even the gift to help celebrate our special day, the hospitality was amazing. They were extremely accommodating and were genuinely concerned with making everyone's stay special.

2. Amazing views.
Each room overlooks the valley and river. Typically, when we go on vacation, we generally like to relax with no real schedule of planned events. Sitting outside on their wrap-around deck, drinking some hard apple cider while overlooking the valley was just about as relaxing as it could get.

3. The Other People
We had a great time chatting it up with some of the other guests staying at the Inn as well. Everyone was really nice.

Things We Disliked:
1. Nothing
Wished we could have stayed longer.

We will definitely be returning to the Inn at Riverbend, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone looking to get away to a relaxing slice of paradise.

Random note: Go to the New River Grill (one of Jimm's many excellent recommendations) and get the Blackberry Cobbler! We had it nearly everyday we were there.

Room Tip: All of them are great.

You will feel relaxed the moment you step foot in the Inn at Riverbend. Our room "Little Stony" had a spectacular view of the New River Basin. The owners, Jimm and Janet, are very friendly. The food is top notch; make sure to grab a cowboy cookie!

Room Tip: "Little Stony" is a room on the corner of the inn with a spectacular view of the New River...

An absolutely lovely b&b with incredible views. Chocolate covered strawberries and a small bottle of champagne awaited us for our anniversary. The interior of the house is very attractive and comfortable. The wraparound deck has stunning views and is wonderful for relaxing and enjoying the quiet. A waterfall into a small pond and lots of birds add to the ambience. The room and bathroom were above expectations. The food was excellent!!! We hope to come back in the fall to see the beautiful view.
Thank you Janet and Jimm!!

I found the perfect get away for my husband's 50 birthday!!! The Inn at Riverbend is beautiful and Jimm & Janet are the perfect host! A bottle of champayne was in our room when we got there to celebrate. Our room overlooked the New River and the view of the mountains was spectacular! The sheets were the softest sheets I've ever slept on that it was hard to leave but we had big plans every day. Janet is the best cook you will find anywhere- I am still dreaming of the banana foster french toast we had the first day! We rented mountain bikes at The Junction and rode The New River Trail which was beautiful- through woods and bridges over looking the river. The next day we went kayaking 10 miles down the river and hiked Cascade Falls. We ate at The Palisades and The Bank for dinner, which were both excellent. I would highly recommend The Inn at Riverbend and can't wait to go back!!

We found this B&B by chance searching on the web. We are so lucky we did. We have stayed at many B&Bs, and by far this has been the best. We were looking for a close getaway for our 10th anniversary. Jim and Janet were amazing. The views were unreal and the 5 star accommodations were perfect. Rooms were modern and out of a magazine. A lot of times the breakfast part of the experience is muffins and some ok stuff. Janet should be cooking in a 5 star breakfast joint. Both mornings were some of the best tasting creations we had every had. On our main day at the inn, we did the 10 mile kayak, then had private massages in our room. We then had dinner at Palisades. Highly recommend. A perfect day. We can't recommend this B&B enough. Already trying to plan a trip back.
