We stayed here for one night recently. Our hosts, Chris & Jayne, were really nice and inviting. The bedroom where we stayed was in the top floor. - the Skyline Room. We had our own bathroom and sitting area. (worth checking - because the Roanoke room's bath is in the hall) Our room was spacious, comfortable and nicely decorated. It would be a great room if you were looking for a place to stay for a few days - had room to stretch out & had a nice sized closet. The overall building was really nice - very solid well designed and quiet. Breakfast was great. Jayne made a "southern breakfast" of strawberry soup (think southern version of strawberry sorbet with fresh fruit- DELICIOUS!) Also had fresh biscuits with choice of baked spiced apples, sausage gravy or pimento

I grew up in Roanoke and I have been delighted to see some lovely changes because it is such a natural beauty spot . The best Black Lantern B&B is one of many nice additions to old Southwest Roanoke, the beautiful walking trail down by the Roanoke River that now has sculpture along the way, the market in downtown seems to be thriving with not only good stores but many people living in converted lofts. It’s great to see this beauty spot polished !

My wife and I stayed at the Black Lantern Inn on our way down to Asheville from NJ. We were so impressed with the hosts and the accommodations that we booked another night on our return trip back to NJ. The room was very spacious, quiet and was decorated with upscale furnishings. Every element is 5*’s.

We had such an amazing stay at the Black Lantern Inn. I would give it 10 stars, if I could! We were in town for the Virginia bar exam and Jayne and Chris both went above and beyond to make our stay stress-free and enjoyable. Jayne is an fantastic chef and makes a delicious breakfast. They are also both incredibly thoughtful and surprised us with cookies after the exam and a bag of snacks for our drive home. The inn itself is beautiful and conveniently located. Highly, highly recommend this place if you are ever in Roanoke.

My wife and I spent one night. We’re delighted we did. We stayed in the Skyline room on the top (loft) floor which is very spacious with private on-suite and a king bed to die for. Sleep in tranquility. This is a boutique B&B with three bedrooms located in a quiet, leafy residential area about one mile from downtown. Excellent Wi-Fi. A delicious and healthy locally sourced breakfast sets you on your way. Chris and Jayne are extremely gracious hosts and most helpful. Definitely stay if you are passing through Roanoke. We will return.
