This was our 2nd stay with Jim and Linda at Ivycrest. They are so hospitable. Room was wonderful. Location is very convenient to go watch Hokies play at Virginia tech.

Comfortable, and great food.

We would highly recommend Ivycrest. The owners Linda and Jim are exceptional people. The room was very clean and the bed was very comfortable. We felt like we were with family. Our daughter (freshman at VT) stayed 2 nights with us and Linda made a bed for her too. The food is excellent , and we will stay again.

Quiet and Friendly

Quietness is what we needed and that is what we got. Friendly and very interesting atmosphere, especially if you like dolls, antiques, and/or quilts.

2 restful nights at Ivycrest Inn B&B

5 on August 13, 2013

August 2013, I stayed 2 different nights and had 2 tasty and filling breakfasts. B&B was quiet and exceptionally clean with interesting antiques, quilts and doll collection. The owners were friendly and helpful. They also provided a small refrigerator stocked with cold drinks and hot water/coffee in the AM. It was convenient to I-81. I was able to workout at nearby Christiansburg Community Center (daily pass -$5) and walked on scenic, paved Huckleberry Trail (southern trail head behind Mall in Christiansburg about 5-10 min drive from B&B). It goes to Blacksburg. Saw runners, bikers and other walkers early in the morning. B&B is convenient to a variety of restaurants and fast food outlets. I enjoyed my stay and will likely go back in future.

Wonderful homey, comfortable environment to rest ones weary and tired head. Wonderful food and attention given to detail in every aspect provided to each guest. Wonderful hosts in Jim and Linda Salyers as they open up their home to you and make you feel most welcomed wanting to never leave. We'll definitely be back.

Beautiful overnight stay

We have stayed in many B&B's, especially in South Africa. But Ivycrest Inn is a unique experience. Linda and Jim make you feel at home from the time of arrival to the time of departure. We were so blessed to stay in such a clean and homely place. The breakfast was out of this world. Joe & Maggie

Very kind owners, helpful, went out of their way to make everything perfect.

BEST weekend ever!!!

5 on May 19, 2013

Stayed at Ivy Crest for our sons graduation from VT and I can honestly say that the B & B made our trip even better then we had planned. We traveled with my mother in law and I was worried about what she would think because she does not travel much but she loved it as well. I cannot say enough wonderful things about Linda and Jim, I feel like family and actually miss being there already. We will definitely be back and will definitely refer them to family and friends. You will not be disappointed in anyway by staying there. B&B to VT campus about 10 minutes!!
