The Oaks Victorian Inn
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 17, 2012

We planned to meet up with my parents for an early Christmas as it is halfway drive for both of us with them coming from KY and us from Northern VA. We have stayed in lots of hotels over the years but this was the first B&B experience for all of us. We all LOVED it! Linda and Bernie are very gracious hosts and made us feel at home immediately. Our rooms were comfortable and clean. We loved the decor of the Inn and you can tell they have put a lot of thought into the decorating. Loved the garden out back. Breakfast was delicious. I cannot say enough good things about this place. I wish we could have stayed a little longer to explore the area but will definitely go back. Yes, you can stay in any number of cookie cutter hotels or motels in the Blacksburg/Christiansburg area but the question is WHY would you want to when you can stay in a beautiful, unique B&B such as The Oaks. Thank you for an AWESOME visit Linda and Bernie.

Thank you Jackie so much for posting a wonderful review. We are glad that you enjoyed every aspect of our Bed and Breakfast and that you felt right at home. We hope to see you again during the warmer months when our gardens are in bloom and you can enjoy sitting on our wrap around porch. Until then, we wish you and your family a very happy holiday season.

We received a gift certificate from our son for a stay at "The Oaks"., which was a weekend to always remember. Linda and Bernie were so gracious and welcoming. They were extremely knowledgeable regarding all nearby activities and wonderful restaurants.. The Inn is beautiful, the breakfast delicious, and the cookie jar is always filled with homemade treats. Everything was beyond our expectations and therefore, we will return in the spring to enjoy their beautiful garden. Linda and Mark

Room Tip: The Julia Pierce room was very nice size with great fireplace and bathroom.

We spent two nights at the Oaks Victorian Inn in October 2012. The hosts, Linda and Bernie, were extremely nice and friendly. The rooms were comfortable, clean and all the interior was held in a lovely and cosy style. The breakfast was delicious and it was fun to share table with other guests and getting to know some people. Since the weather was not very good at the time of our stay, Linda and Bernie gave us some useful recommendations about the area and what we could do. We had a great time at the Oaks Victorian Inn!

We enjoyed our stay at this beautiful, historic home. Our room was large, comfortable and well equipped. It was elegantly finished down to the table setting. Our hosts were delightful and made us feel very comfortable in their delightful home.
Breakfast was gourmet and absolutely delicious. Although this was October, the gardens were wonderful. I cannot wait to see them in warmer weather. We will certainly return to this perfect retreat!

Thank you for taking the time to post your wonderful review. So pleased that you enjoyed the gardens though they were winding down as winter approaches. There are lots of plans for making the gardens bigger and better as we have the honor of being part of the 2013 Friends of The Library Garden Tour next July. We look forward to seeing you in the future.

From the moment we arrived, we felt very welcomed. The room, Julia Pierce, was better than expected. The room was spacious and the attached bathroom was very nice. A tub for two and a walk-in shower! The time of our stay allowed us to use both the A/C and the gas fireplace located in our room. Very cozy! One rainy afternoon, we chose a movie from the library and watched it in our room. The breakfasts were amazing and the coffee was perfect. Just wish we could have stayed longer! Bernie and Linda were wonderful hosts. Thank you for opening your home to all!

When traveling to Savannah last month, we decided to break up the drive and were very pleased that we found The Oaks. It’s just off of I-81 and the perfect midway point from our home in Westchester.. When we arrived Linda and Bernie invited us into their home and sat and talked with us for a few minutes. That was the first time we had experienced that type of welcome to a B+B and made us feel like they really care about their guests. They asked us if we needed help with dinner then told us that breakfast was at 9 and asked if that time worked for us and did we have had any special dietary needs. We had a long drive ahead of us the next day and asked if there was any way we could have an early breakfast. Linda told us that that was no problem. There was no “Breakfast is only at 9 sharp and don’t be late”. The next morning, at 7:00, we were treated to a wonderful breakfast and some coffee to go. Just an F.Y.I., Linda makes a homemade granola that is absolutely delicious. We have often toyed with the idea of someday running a B+B but are leery of inviting complete strangers into out home so our favorite question to our hosts is “Do you ever get guests that are impossible to please or just plain weird?“ I imagine it’s kind of scary knowing that anything can be posted in a review for the whole internet world to see. Some of the answers we have gotten have been doozies. Linda shared a couple of stories that were funny, a bit offbeat, but in no way malicious or unkind. And P.S. I do agree …the cookies are great.

Room Tip: Every room is different. Some have fireplaces. Some have jacuzzis. They are all gorgeous. The cottag...

Thank you for your wonderful review. What a nice surprise when you called and booked a room on your way back north. Too bad it was a little nippy to sit out on the porch but we really enjoyed sharing a glass of wine with you in the library. Hope to see you next time you travel to or through Virginia.

We were greeted upon arrival and asked about our preferences. Good,, Our host answered our questions but were not overly expressive. Most of the interview session was about themselves rather than answering our questions. Breakfast was at 9 am sharp,do not be late.
You will sit where they tell you to at the table. The list of rules (which are understandable) are
printed for you in the host book. The breakfast interaction with Linda was negative. All that was really addressed were the negative feedbacks from other guest and this was not uplifting. Future guest should know that you may become the focal point of future conversation about how awful you really were as guest in the "Oaks". They (Linda and Bernie) were accused of being control freaks. I wonder why??
The breakfast food was great, the inn was neat as a pen,clean top to bottom and aside from a few declining moments we were very comfortable. One Big improvement needed. The sheets and pillow cases should be laundered with a non-scented (enviormental friendly) soap.One that does not bleed with a heavy scent, as sleeping all night is a good thing for those of us with a allergy or supersensitive nose.

Cookies were great..

Upon arrival we ask guests to come into our parlor so we can ask about breakfast needs and any other needs they may have while staying with us. We did tell you that we have a single breakfast seating at 9 and asked if that time worked for you. It is not often but sometimes guests ask for an earlier breakfast and we serve them sometimes as early as 7 o’clock. We have also had guests ask for a 10 o’clock breakfast and made breakfast for them at 10. We start serving juice and coffee at 9 but try to wait until all our guests are seated before serving breakfast. If not all of our guests are seated by 9:10 or so we do begin serving the first course. As you may recall there were 2 other couples staying with us when you were here. Many B+Bs seat all of their guests together and when we showed you the dining room at check-in you saw that there was a table set for 6. If you had asked for a separate table we would have gladly moved 2 of the place settings to another table. At breakfast one of the other guests asked if we ever get guests that are difficult or impossible to please. We do not make past guests a focal point of conversation but were asked so we answered honestly and tried to keep our answers light and humorous even though the questions were about negative situations. As for the sheets, we launder them with Tide and dry them with Snuggle fabric softener. These are commonly used products and many guests have commented on how good the sheets feel and smell. We are sorry you did not have a more positive experience at The Oaks.
