Some Inns pay their way to a good rating. These folks EARN it! Selecting Black Lantern Inn as a last minute stay was the best luck I've ever encountered. Having stayed at many B&B's over the years, I was just a little blown away at the owner's thoughtfulness to any detail one could wish for. Claire & Ron KNOW how to operate a true B&B! From the outstanding breakfast to the every guest comfort one could imagine, Very delighted with the Tiger's Eye room & private bath with hydro spa tub. The linens & bedding were top notch! The full guest kitchen was complete with honor bar & gallon jugs of fresh milk for those fantastic plates of cookies they leave for you. I took full advantage of it. :-) So impressed with the house itself. Lovely lovely decor. Had the best fun in the downstairs living area with a music library that was serious for any music lover. Found myself being very entertained by Ron's knowledge of great music & all things Chicago & Da Bears. Too fun! What wonderful hosts these folks are. If you find yourself in Roanoke, skip the usual hotels & treat yourself to a true southern hospitality retreat. Wish I could have stayed a week! I will go back when next in the area. Did I mention, the great views? Yeah, sitting on the upstairs covered area with a glass of wine..... Heaven. Two words people, BOOK IT!
