This B&B was awesome exceeded our expectations on our second anniversary trip week! Chris, Jayne and Jax (the sweet and happy poodle) were so nice to meet and eat breakfast with! The room was VERY nice and TOP NOTCH detail. The breakfast was VERY VERY GOOD! If you want a EXTREMELY NICE place to stay for one or more nights, you will not go wrong staying here. Thank you Chris, Jayne and Jax for a VERY enjoyable stay, DELUXE++ accommodations and super delicious breakfast !!!
We spent (sadly only) one night at the Black Lantern. We loved it! A special mention for the upstairs deck with heater where we enjoyed a glass of wine chatting to our host Chris. Our room was comfortable (great bed!) and there was a mini kitchen with everything we needed plus milk when we asked for it to put in our (British tea). The welcome was warm, hospitable and really welcoming. BLI is well situated and walking distance from the town. Chris and Jayne gave us a local dinner recommendation that was spot on! Really good food at Evie’s Bistro & Bakery - and a homely crowd - again we were made to feel really welcome. So far, despite stiff competition, the BLI was really my favourite place to stay in the region.
Breakfast was sublime with maple cream and fruit to start (indescribably delicious) followed by pumpkin flour pancakes with bacon & sausage with pecan syrup and maple syrup.
And Jacky, the tiny toy poodle was an absolute delight - what a well-trained dog and so sweet. L
We really, really enjoyed staying there - the quality of the conversation was as good as the accommodation! Thoughtful & interesting. Ask to see the photos of the development of the inn itself- again, a fascinating and uplifting story! Many thanks to Chris and Jayne - that was special!
My husband and I stayed the night at the Black Lantern Inn and would hope to stay here again! The Inn is very welcoming, thanks to Chris, Jayne and Jax (their pup) and extremely comfortable. The room we stayed in was quite large with a very comfortable bed, seating areas, linens and bathroom. Our breakfast was a delicious assortment of fresh organic fruit with organic yogurt and fresh pastries. We found this to be an excellent choice for our journey along the Blue Ridge Parkway and will definitely stay here again when in this area. Thank you Chris and Jayne!
We visited this charming B and B as part of our USA road trip. The inn is located right off the blue ridge parkway and has easy access to downtown Roanoke and an easy drive to mill mountain to visit the famous star.
Whichever room you choose to stay in you will not be disappointed, all decorated to the highest standard and equipped with everything you could need. Also available is a guest kitchen providing a fridge tea coffee and snacks. There are ample gorgeous places to sit outside and enjoy a glass of wine whilst you chat to other guests.
We were welcomed to the inn by the owners Chris and Jane and not forgetting their fur baby Jaxx.
We were treat to the most fantastic homemade southern cooking on each morning and it’s inspired me to try out some of the sweet potato pancakes here in the uk.
Chris and Jane make sure your visit to Roanoke is perfect with info on local places of interest maps and restaurant suggestions their hospitality is second to non. Thankfully we chose to stay here but the best decision was staying two nights.
Our chats around the breakfast table with them and other guests was so enjoyable and we left feeling like they were old friends.
Thankyou Chris Jane and Jaxx
We were upgraded to the skyline suite due to a cancellation. This is a wonderful upmarket bed and breakfast from decor to bamboo sheets and organic home made breakfast. We felt truly pampered staying here. The hosts were so friendly and full of advice and recommendation. The 3 rooms share a kitchen and balcony overlooking the Roanoak star that can be seen lit up at night. We walked into downtown (about 20 mins) and would definitely recommend this b&b
