Loved staying in this historic home while looking at properties in the area. Especially enjoyed being able to walk downtown to restaurants and shops. The hosts were very friendly and conversive and the breakfast was delicious!!


Wonderful historic home in Marion

I enjoyed the beauty of this stately home. The owners were very friendly and provided historic information about the home and the area. The breakfast was delicious and consisted of Belgian Waffles with fresh strawberries and cream, sausage links, coffee, and juice. I loved the fact that we could walk one block to nice restaurants. The Blue Merle Sheltie was a bonus!!


Incredible property and hosts

I booked a room for my husband and me but I didn't think to tell Mike and Susan, the proprietors, that we were arriving on motorcycles. When we arrived, Mike immediately offered top let us park our bikes in their garage! How wonderful! From the start they were wonderful hosts. The breakfast the next morning was homemade Belgian waffles with fresh farmer's market strawberries and cream. I could stay there for weeks!

Great stay.....Great Hosts !!!

Mike and Susan are the best....my husband and I were so impressed with their hospitality and helpfulness. We were celebrating our 54th wedding anniversary and Mike got us a dinner reservation at the Best Place in the area....The Tavern in Abingdon. The next night he arranged tickets for the Stage II Theater in Abingdon.The breakfasts were delicious and they always joined the guests for morning conversation. Accommodations exquisite and the decor outstanding!!!!! Highly recommended!!!

A wonderful place!

5 on May 26, 2016

What a wonderful place! I had to take care of some personal business in the area and Susan, Mike & Sophie turned an anticipated stressful time into a pleasant quiet and calming experience. The grounds and my room were so lovely and the overall decor was beautifully decorated, including many of the owner’s personal touches. The breakfasts - oh my! Susan & Mike were very thoughtful about meeting my requests, and their own choices & recipes were outstanding. The food was exquisitely presented and absolutely delicious. For most days of my stay I lingered longer at the breakfast table than normal! I was inspired by their stories and their work ethic. There is a phrase posted on one of their walls and I took the words to heart, basically to “enter as a guest but leave as a friend”. I highly recommend the Collins House Inn to anyone wanting a truly 5-star experience and treatment. Looking forward to returning one day.

Great Hospitality

Loved the stay at the inn. Was just like being in your own home. Susan and Mike were very kind. I was volunteering at a Remote Area Medical event and they opened up their Bed and Breakfast for several of the volunteers. It is the most welcoming place that I have stayed at and highly recommend it to anyone visiting the area. Hope to be able to stay there again. Thanks for all that you did for RAM and the volunteers.

A wonderful respite from a long days travel.

5 on May 02, 2016

We were traveling from Texas back to Washington DC and wanted a quiet, warm and luxurious place to stay. The Collins House Inn was all of those and more. We wish we had more time to spend at the Inn.
