The Roost Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #5 of 6 Bedford B&B and Inns
Reviewed July 24, 2013

My wife and I, very early 80s, were travelling with a 15 year old young man from France. We spent two nights in "The Roost" on the lower level. Two nights means two of Sues great breakfasts and a lot of face time with she and Andrew. This is a new home built to accomodate visiting children and grandchildren. The grounds are large and immaculate. If you are a bird watcher, you will really enjoy the many visitors to their feeders. . .from Humming Birds to Gold Finches. It is only 10 minutes or so to town for diiner. At sunset, the Twin Otter peaks are breathtaking. Don't miss the Roost B&B on your next trip to Virginia!

Great place to stay! Sue and Andy are excellent hosts; kind and friendly. We stayed in the Coop, which is a beautiful room. We much appreciated having our own bathroom and private entrance. The king size bed was very comfortable and the sofa bed was also very thick and comfortable. Breakfast was delicious and the "little extras" provided made this stay perfect. We will definitely return!

We had a wonderful time. The location was perfect. We hiked, saw the local sights, and relaxed. Sue and Andrew were very gracious hosts, the food was excellent, and the accommodations were very comfortable.

Room Tip: Good access to the Blue Ridge Parkway;-)

It's very nice to have a room at a B&B with a private entrance. Also, the home is set on a lovely landscaped property with a large pond. Your host will even take you on a "mule ride" around the pond. (Hint: it's not an animal ride.) Our room was spacious and comfortable and the bathroom was pretty and very clean. We had original artwork in our room and found out at breakfast that the beautiful watercolor paintings are by Sue, the innkeeper! Ask to see her other work. You may even find some art to take home since a few of her watercolors are for sale . . . and they are lovely. Breakfast was delicious. You'll find the hosts are very friendly and helpful. What more could you ask for at a B&B -- enjoy your stay at this quiet and beautiful B&B set on a gorgeous property.

My husband and I stayed 3 nights in October which meant we woke up to not only beautiful colors but 3 different and great breakfasts. Makes our mouths water just thinking about the goooood cooking! Andy and Sue makes you feel like its home and you belong there. They are good down to earth people. Their home is immaculate. You can take a walk and/or ride "the mule" (loved "the mule") to see the gorgeous grounds. We did both. Could not have asked for a better stay.

Andy and Sue are the best. We stayed 2 nights in the "Nest". A very well equipped room, with everything you would need. Their breakfasts are awesome. First day was fresh pears/peaches, a apple compote, a berry/peach cobble, a large omelet with cheese, bacon and potatoes,fresh blueberry scones, and last but not least local ( VA ) stone ground grits. The 2nd day was more fresh fruit, a different scone, a berry/peach tart, egg casserole with cheese and ham, and her own homemade scrapple. Makes you want to cry. The have wonderful grounds to roam, or just sit in the swing. Is very convenient to both the Parkway and Bedford. Andy can be talked into giving a "mule" ride around the area.

Room Tip: They are in the country, when driving at dusk and after dark, be very aware of deer and other animal...

What a wonderful B&B! My husband, young son and I stayed for 1 night in August. We had booked just as a stop gap on our way through, but could have happily stayed for longer! Andy & Sue are so very hospitable and their home is simply beautiful. We stayed in the Coop, which was quite possibly bigger than the downstairs of my home! It was spotlessly clean, had everything we needed and Sue had even provided us with some home-made warm savoury bites for our arrival. Breakfast was exceptional... Sue really is a fantastic cook!
They made us feel very welcome and we all enjoyed being taken off round their stunning grounds in the golf cart. The area around their home is beautiful, very tranquil and quiet, with views over the peaks. We actually really liked Bedford too. Sue & Andy recommended The Station restaurant which was brilliant.
Thank you Sue & Andy... it was a pleasure to meet you both and to stay in your home. We very much hope to return one day and we will definitely stay for longer than 1 night!
