The Oaks Victorian Inn
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 12, 2013

It has been awhile since we have stayed at a B&B and after staying at the Oaks, it will be hard to stay at a hotel again! It is a beautiful home both inside and out! Linda and Bernie were extremely accommodating...8 members of our family stayed at the Oaks to attend Radford University's graduation. They were willing to provide our family with breakfast earlier than the scheduled time so we wouldn't be late for commencement. During the first day, Linda and Bernie noticed that our son didn't eat as much breakfast and offered to make something that he would like the next day. Linda also made sure that there was sugar-free maple syrup for one of our family members who had diabetes. The great coffee and cookies made fresh every day were awesome too. The attention to detail was unbelievable. The stay at the Oaks made our son's graduation most memorable! We hope to come again!

Just left today. Stayed for 2 nights. Had 2 rooms. Major Pierce and Bonny "something". We had a busy schedule and didn't get to spend a lot of time hanging out. The outdoors here are beautiful. Weather permitting. They thought of the little things here, examples plenty of soap, towels, beverages, wine glasses, qtips+, lots of outlets for chargers, list of tv channels, restaurant listings with comments, etc. Breakfast is at 9:00 sharp (no flexibility here). It is nice and they serve you 3 small courses. Very nice. It is what I call the "classic definition" of B&B, i.e. Chatty with guests. (I saw the owners sitting with the guests on the porch. Nothing wrong with it of you like to talk to strangers!). The rooms were both very nice. We could hear the people below us talking on their cell phone and could hear the owners above us (think they have a pet up there because we could hear it running). We will go back. You pay a good bit for this place so you should carve out a little time to enjoy it. We will next time!

Thank you for choosing The Oaks Victorian Inn. Hopefully the next time you are here the weather allows you the opportunity to enjoy all the Blue Ridge Highlands and New River Valley has to offer. There are several great wineries, spectacular hiking trails, wonderful music and more. As you stated, we do serve a 3 course breakfast at 9. You may recall when we were showing you the dining room we did ask if the 9 o'clock serving time worked for your schedule. If you had told us that you needed an earlier or later breakfast we would have gladly accommodated you. That's why we ask. We have served past guests as early as 7 and as late as 10. As owners of a B+B, we do treasure the many travelers who arrive as strangers and depart as friends. Our large wrap around porch allows us the pleasure of sitting with guests at the end of the day, sharing a bottle of wine, and enjoying a pleasant evening's conversation. Please keep in mind that The Oaks was built 120 years ago before modern soundproofing materials existed and many guests have commented that they have been pleasantly surprised as to how quiet the house is. We have put down thick carpeting in rooms on the 3rd floor and extra padding under the rug in the room you chose to make guest rooms as quiet as possible. We apologize if we or other guests disturbed you. The Alexandria room has no rooms above or below and may be a better choice for your next stay.

My sister and I travel to VT several times a year to visit our nephew and our usual venue was not available so we decided to try a B&B. I had stayed in several, but this was a virst experience for her. Don't think I'll have to twist her arm to get her to go back to The Oaks. We stayed three nights and they literally had to find places to fit us in. We spent the first night in the Cottage and it is like a 'doll/tree house'. You will never find a more organized space. It was pouring rain when we arrived and we immediately sat out on the cottage porch with a nice drink to enjoy the sound of the rain. The loft bedroom gives you the feeling of sleeping in a tree house. Very comfortable & cozy. Our last two nights we spent in the St Christopher. Equally amazing, but on a whole different level. Spacious, light & airy. Everything is amazingly appointed with much attention to detail (even black wash clothes for removing makeup). There was not ONE dust bunnie to be found - this was absolutely the cleanest environment I have ever seen. We were having some dietary issues and Linda never missed a beat in preparing meals that met our needs. We asked a LOT of questions and they patiently answered each and every one. Edie is indeed a treasure, but you know immediately that there would be no way to seperate her from The Oaks. We begged and pleaded until Linda finally agreed to put out names in the book for graduation (4 years from now). Linda & Bernie have really caught on to southern hospitality and put their own stamp on it. We both giggled when we got in the car about how we were going to go home to our husbands and tell them they had better stay on their toes because we had gone to Va Tech and joined a 'Sleep Around Club' ! (We think that's all they need to know - for now)!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Garden Cottage and St Christopher - both were comfortable and quiet. For a long st...

I just stayed at this B & B while my daugher swam at a swim meet in the swim center nearby. The accomodations were absolutely outstanding. The attention to detail in the furniture, decor and even the antique metal dogs decorating the staircase , make it all the more special. My room and bath were spotless, as was the rest of the B & B. I find it hard to want to leave home and travel because I want accommodations to be as comfortable as my home. This B & B was exactly that-- I only wish my home was so immaculately clean. Linda and Bernie could not have been any more accomodating. I want to plan a trip back to the area just so I can stay in this wonderful B & B.

This was our second stay at the Oaks. The first was 5 years ago, and we enjoyed it very much...so much so that when we decided to drive south to Hilton Head we planned our route so that we could stay here again. Linda and Bernie have been the owners for a couple of years, and they've made some nice changes in the public areas...the library in particular is a very nice place to sit and read, or play games, or strum on Bernie's guitar.

One thing that has not changed is the great breakfast (thank goodness).

All in all this is an excellent B&B, and I don't hesitate to recommend it.

Thank you for coming back to The Oaks. It was a nice surprise having guests from our old neighborhood and fun talking about all of our old haunts. When you go to Jade Village and have a great meal think of us. Hope to see you next time you are in the Blue Ridge Mountains...Linda and Bernie

My boyfriend and I chose this B&B last minute from the Select Registry Book as we were driving through this area. This is such a beautiful B&B with such gracious owners as host. Every part of our stay we felt very welcome and relaxed. The owners Linda and Bernie were available if we needed them but were quietly in the background. Breakfast was absolutely delicious and beautifully presented. The home is pristine in its appearance and so beautifully decorated! This is definitely a must if you are planning to be in the area.

My husband and I stayed here while visiting our daughter in Christiansburg last weekend and as we told Linda and Bernie, this is definitely where we will stay for all future visits. I am a bit of a nut about cleanliness and I have to say, this place sparkles! Edie, the housekeeper is amazing! Every crystal on the chandeliers sparkled, the extensive woodwork was beautifully oiled, and there was not a speck of dust anywhere! We wanted to bring Edie home with us! We stayed in the Alexandria Room and loved it! The bed was very comfortable and the sheets and towels were sooooo soft! Breakfast both mornings was fantastic! Upon arrival, we were asked what we preferred for breakfast -- something we've never been asked at other B&B's and which has been an issue for us. Other B&B's we've stayed in offered only one choice for breakfast, usually something sweet. We said we'd prefer something other than sweets but that we didn't want to cause a problem and we were assured it wouldn't be - how refreshing! We had fresh fruit and an amazing egg dish both mornings! First time I've seen my husband enjoy a B&B breakfast! The innkeepers, Linda and Bernie were so much fun -- very easy to talk to and eager to provide ideas for things to do in the area. Our only regret was that we didn't get to stay longer. We plan on joining the "Sleep Around Club" - a stay in every room in the inn! Can hardly wait for our next visit!

Thank you so much for that glowing review. You are sooooo right. Edie is amazing! She's been with The Oaks for 20+ years. It's really her B+B and she is kind enough to let folks like Bernie and me to buy it from time to time. So pleased that you joined the Sleep Around Club. We look forward to seeing you again in the near future.
