Went for an anniversary night stay away from home in this beautiful B&B. The room was lovely, as was the rest of the house. Ron, the owner was a great host and a fantastic cook for the morning breakfast. Ask to see the pictures from when he was rehabbing the house and you will be astounded that it is the... More

My husband and i stayed here while traveling the Blue Ridge Parkway and Skyline Drive. We liked it so much that we returned the next week on our way home. The Inn is beautifully restored and maintained. It was very relaxing, peaceful, and comfortable. Ron was a perfect host--welcoming us, cooking good breakfasts, providing good information about the Parkway and... More

On our way home from Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, we spent one night at this lovely B&B. Ron was very welcoming, helping with luggage, sharing his recipe for the most delicious scrambled eggs ever and even giving me ideas for my planned kitchen remodel! We stayed in the first floor room with private bath and a beautiful canopy bed. Property is... More

My wife and I booked at only a days notice and without a great deal of research. We were using Roanoke as a stop-off point on a drive down the Blue Ridge Parkway, so this was only one night, but the Inn was so good I wish we'd had more time. Beautifully restored period home - most of restoration by... More

This is a small B and B on the edge of downtown Roanoke which has been beautifully remodelled by Ron, the inn keeper with plenty of thoughtful and charming touches. It is a restful spot but also convenient to Roanoke's modern art gallery and its nicely kept downtown. Ron and Claire provide everything you could want, have lots of tips... More

We stayed at the Black Lantern on a Blue Ridge Parkway trip, and Ron was a wonderful host. He's restored this historic house meticulously with elegance and comfort. We had the room at the top of the house and loved it! Lisa

We stayed here one night, on a c2c roadtrip. Ron was a very helpful and welcoming host - and he cooked us an really excellent breakfast too! The room was quiet and the bed very comfortable and everything was super clean, B&B also had fridge and drinks etc. Very good stopover for us, wished we could have stayed longer!

Planed a trip down the Blue Ridge Parkway from Rt. 64 to Roanoke. While looking for a place to stay in Roanoke I came across the Black Lantern Inn. We prefer to stay at owner, operator places when possible. On of the best decisions on the whole trip. There are three rooms in this B&B. The whole house was completely... More

We arrived on short notice and were made welcome by Ron. Our room was wonderful and the best part was we had access to the den next door so my husband could watch tv while I went to bed. The owner, Ron, took a condemned property and has hand-crafted the restoration. Husband, a craftsman, said the workmanship was the best... More
