We're well traveled, and we don't usually get overly excited about a place, but the Oaks blew us away. Beautiful property...I kept looking to find a blemish and quite frankly I couldn't find anything. Very well maintained and run property. Great attention to detail means the little things are covered. Breakfast was wonderful. Absolutely worthy of a great rating, and a place we'll stay at again and again.

Our Top B&B

5 on May 19, 2017

Second stay at the Oaks. Our top B&B experience to date. Decompressed from the drive with a glass of wine in the garden enjoying the nice breeze and well thought out landscape and artwork. Dinner recommendation was great, we dined at the Farmhouse. Finished with a candle light breakfast which was excellent.We will be back!

Charming and relaxing

We so enjoyed our quiet escape at The Oaks. The atmosphere and delicious breakfasts made our trip visiting Va. Tech, a lovely stay.

Can't Wait to Go Back

We've been under the care of Bernie and Linda twice and loved both times equally. The rooms are cozy, quiet and inviting. The Julia Pierce room is our favorite.

Perfect B&B!

5 on January 07, 2017

A crème de la crème B & B experience in the Blue Ridge foothills. Linda and Bernie left no amenity unattended. In our Julia Pierce room, we enjoyed a gaslit fireplace and a beautiful jacuzzi tub in the huge bathroom, which also included a fridge where ice cubes awaited in a crystal decanter for our "adult beverages"! A delicious and elegant candlelit 3-course breakfast, plus cookies upon departure - we shall return!

Great Place to Stay

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

5 on August 26, 2016

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

5 on July 18, 2016

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.
