Upon our arrival, we were greeted by Lynn and Jim, the Innkeepers. They gave us the Grand Tour of their magnificent, newly renovated Inn. Their pride of ownership showed as we ventured from room to room - each one impeccably decorated with one-of-a-kind antiques and artwork. Our rooms were beautiful, comfortable and very private with our own bathroom. The bed and linens were luxurious. There were several large, comfortable common sitting/living areas in addition to an art gallery featuring a different artist each season. Speaking of artists, Lynn indulged us by showing us her art studio - we can see where her creativity originates.
After our tour, we were treated to homemade cookies and wine. Jim made us reservations for dinner at a local place that was within walking distance. The menu was amazing!
Jim and Lynn outdid themselves the next 2 mornings with the gourmet breakfasts they served on the best china and linens - we felt like royalty. Lynn is an amazing cook. Hot from the oven muffins & fresh fruit were only the prelude to lemon curd stuffed french toast the first morning and eggs benedict the next.
We actually came to visit Virginia Tech - which was a 45 minute drive from the Inn. This Bed and Breakfast was our best ever! Jim and Lynn's hospitality was top notch! Their willingness to sit and share the local interests was much appreciated. It will be a treat to return and explore Roanoke.
