It was lovely to stay here. Sadly only for one night. However the large bed was ultra comfortable and we appreciated the effort the owners have put in to make this an attractive and welcoming place to stay. The very best aspect of the Black Lantern is breakfast. If the owners ever do that B&B swap with UK hosts, the breakfasts here will go down a storm! Just one little thing: our bedroom had a detached bathroom. It might not matter but if you need the loo frequently, don’t book this room!
During our visit through Roanoke, we stayed at the Black Lantern Inn. The Andrews, treated us like royalty. Our room, with a beautiful vintage cherry king bed, was spacious and decorated wonderfully. We slept like a dream. We were in awe of the quality workmanship and the lovely gardens. We could not stay for their breakfast as we had to travel on early, but our host left us with coffee, homemade pastry and fruit at 5:30 am for our trip, along with a personal note wishing us a safe journey. On our next trip through Roanoke, we will definitely be staying at the Black Lantern Inn. Roy & Judy North Carolina
We spent two nights at B.L. Inn on our way through Virginia. Cannot say enough in praise of our hosts, Chris & Jayne, and their spotless, modern, and comfortable B&B. Our attic suite was a spacious room with full bath. Lovely reading and writing nooks, fabulous linens and towels, clever vanity in the bath. The breakfasts were better than a 4 star hotel. Several lounging areas outside including a 2nd story deck and a 1st level swing. We borrowed bikes and helmets for a great ride on the easy access Greenway. Our hosts even had great resturant and coffee recommendations. Don't miss a stay at the Black Lantern!
My friend and I left our families home and headed South for a girls trip! The host are friendly, the rooms lovely, the food wonderful! I could move in! Tomorrow we jump on The Blue Ridge Parkway, which is a stones throw! Loved Roanoke.
This is a FANTASTIC bed and breakfast! Chris and Jayne are amazing hosts. They made sure that everything was provided for us and that we were always comfortable. On top of that, they made wonderful breakfasts for us both mornings! We enjoyed spending time with them and learning all about the area. The upstairs suite is amazing, and the other two rooms looked very nice as well. They sure know how to treat people well, and it is evident in their service and ambiance. This bed and breakfast allowed to us to have a fantastic weekend in Roanoke! We will be recommending to everyone we know. Thanks again Chris and Jayne for such a fantastic weekend!
