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!

One of the best we have ever visited--beautiful inn. Great location, breakfast, and hospitality. Many places inside and out to relax. Skyline room is very spacious and very private. Innkeepers Chris and Jayne are great folks and are so kind. Hope to return soon....

This was just the best surprise! We have never tried a bed-and-breakfast before and we are so glad that this was our first. However, the Black Lantern Inn has set the bar high. It is a gorgeous house, Great location, and wonderful, if not the best host and hostess. The breakfast was to die for. They were very accommodating and friendly and very helpful when it came to directions and where to go for a nice local place to eat dinner. We will definitely try to go to this Inn again, when we are in the area.
