Great Place to Stay

This was a great place to stay. It was clean and comfortable and the breakfast was great. We would definitely stay again.

A piece of relaxation during my business trip

I felt right at home (well, even more relaxed than at home!) at the Oaks Victorian Inn. The food was delicious, the service superb, and the atmosphere peaceful. I didn't want to leave!

Charming Getaway in Virginia

This inn is very charming, the rooms and bathrooms are beautiful and very large. Breakfast was a treat and the hosts provided ample choices for restaurants and relaxation at this lovely property that includes a welcoming garden retreat.

A Gem of Understated Refinement and Elegance

My husband and I hightailed it to The Oaks after dropping off our son at Virginia Tech. It was so comforting to relax and rejuvenate in this delightful ambience. The inn combines elegance, whimsy, and history with comfort and cleanliness. The breakfast was delicious, the gardens beautiful, and the hosts were helpful and friendly and fun. We enjoyed ourselves and plan to return.

Sets the bar very high for other B&B's

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Oaks. Upon arriving, we were immediately struck by the beauty of the house and its grounds. The architectural details and historic splendor were elegant an impressive, but yet the home still felt welcoming. The entire staff was friendly, helpful, and very welcoming. We were able to walk into town for dinner, but unfortunately didn't have time to explore the area further. We stayed in the Julia Pierce room. The room was comfortable and contained many incredible modern amenities that enhanced our enjoyment (e.g., the 2-person Jacuzzi). The bed in particular was very comfortable, and we both slept very well. Linda and Bernie's attention to details is apparent throughout, and we appreciated the special touches (brandy and cookies on arrival, self-serve coffee in the morning, etc.). The most important thing for us was all the welcoming public spaces to spend down time, including the living rooms and of course the magnificent wraparound porch. The breakfast in the morning was nothing short of spectacular; the food was top-notch and it was severed in an exquisite dining room. Our only regret is that we could not stay another night or two. We can't highly recommend this place enough. It sets the bar by which we will judge other B&B's in the future, and no doubt most will fall well short of that bar.

Beautiful Inn close to central Christiansburg

Wonderful setting and comfortable rooms with excellent service and hospitality.

Wonderful and relaxing experience!

How comforting to arrive in pouring rain to the glow of the lights of the beautiful Victorian inn, step into the cozy home and smell a waft of fresh baked cookies! Linda and Bernie made me truly feel like a special guest in their home. Every detail was outstanding. The bed was so comfortable. The linens, towels and robes are such a nice quality. My favorite was soaking in the claw foot tub with the bath pillow and place to set my wine making it the perfect “me time”! I loved that somehow, after confirming that a house full of guests all with different dietary needs, Linda was able to make a scrumptious breakfast for all and no one was singled out. She covers every detail and makes it seem so effortless! Linda is a wealth of information for any possible activity you would like to do! We spent of good amount of time visiting the antique shops and wineries that Linda recommended. Each evening upon our return there would be something in the cookie jar or a dessert in the foyer with a set up for tea (or sherry in the game room.) It was a wonderful relaxing trip! Linda and Bernie deserve 5 stars themselves for their outstanding care! I’m looking forward to returning when the weather is nice enough to sit in the rockers on the wrap around porch and enjoy the gardens.

Everything was lovely about The Oaks and the owners take great pride in accommodating your every need. There were even fresh baked cookies were coming out of the oven as we arrived. It was great!

Our delightful stay in Virginia!

This is by far the best B & B we have ever visited! The inn and rooms are lovely - we especially enjoyed the fireplace in our room and the HUGE bathroom. However, the very best parts of this inn are the delightful and gracious hosts, Bernie and Linda, and the amazing breakfast - service, presentation, and food quality. Linda also welcomed me into the kitchen and gave me a cooking lesson! We will definitely stay here again when in the area.

A wonderful experience

We stayed at the Oaks during a winter month and found it very cozy and inviting. We felt at home but with pampering included. We highly recommend this as a great place to stay.
