A Great Place

Wonderful atmosphere, very clean, beds were very comfortable and the food was exceptional. Our first time in a B&B in this area and since we have a student at a nearby college we will be coming here again. The entire weekend was wonderful.

Another GREAT stay!!!

Another great weekend this year with Linda and Jim. You feel like family when you're there. They are outstanding innkeepers and everything is just perfect. So glad I found them when my son started at Virginia Tech and now even though he's graduated we will come again and again for football games. Miss y'all already. See you again soon I hope!! Heidi B.

Love this Inn and the Innkeepers!!

Linda and Jim are so friendly and now have become dear friends. Found their place 5 years ago when our son went to Virginia Tech. Would recommend this B & B to everyone. Accommodations are excellent and the food is amazing. You will feel at home yet you will be pampered like you're not at home. Just stayed there for 3 days and I miss them already.

Wonderful weekend at Ivycrest

We stayed at Ivycrest two nights and were very, very comfortable--you'll want to take the beds with you!! Jim and Linda are exceptional people who truly go out of their way to make you comfortable. I cannot even begin to tell you how wonderful their breakfasts are! We really enjoyed the B&B and Jim and Linda even more. What a great weekend.

Innkeeper Response
We are so glad you enjoyed your time here and hope if you ever need to be in the area again you would consider another visit. We were glad to serve you.

Very lovely, welcoming Inn

Jim and Linda were the most gracious hosts. Ivycrest was beautiful, warm and welcoming. They made sure we had everything we needed, down to reserving us our parking so our spot wasnt taken due to a scheduled event at the Inn. Ivycrest was convienent to shops and of course our Sinkland Farms destination. You couldn't ask for a more pleasant place and host. We will definitely be back in the future and would recommend to anyone staying in the area for special occasions or for that weekend getaway. Thanks Jim and Linda!

Weekend football game

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.

Innkeeper Response
I was very surprised and disappointed in this review, especially after finding my antique coverlet ruined with red nail polish from one of your "dancers" you had with you. Also saw on your FB page where you had taken dolls down and made pictures to poke fun at others and involved the Pastors wife of the church you were visiting.....and your low rating of value ....the church that paid for you to stay here was given a huge discount and it didn't cost you anything. I really hope there was not a review given to your host church like the one you left here. We try to please all our guests but I guess sometimes it just isn't possible. In all our years of business this is the first negative review we have received. We hope future guests will give us a try and see that our main concern is the comfort of our guests.
