King George Inn
Ranked #3 of 6 Roanoke B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 21 September 2010

My one night, business stay was perfect! We were greeted by Lynn and Jim on arrival, taken on a tour of the historic beautifully restored Inn and treated to a "snack" that was and outstanding combination of flavors and included a glass (or 2) of wine! The room was lovely, spacious and immaculately clean. The linens (one of my favorite things) were high quality and beautiful (towels were absorbent and large, and sheets were butter soft). It was a great night's sleep, with an outstanding breakfast. Lynn and Jim could not have been more helpful. I am quite leery of B and B's, preferring to be anonymous at a hotel, but I loved, loved, loved this place and would recommend it!

The innkeepers were incredibly accommodating and friendly. We fully agreed with Lynn's breakfast philosophy of having dessert first. We could not experience Roanoke to its fullest because we were there on a Sunday, but the KGI was delightful.

My room and bath were clean and spacious. The food was delicious. The location was close to everything I wanted to see. The Innkeepers Jim and Lynn were friendly, outgoing, gracious and accommodating. I was so comfortable I stayed another week.

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.

I stayed here during the 2010 Virginia bar exam. This was a fantastic place to stay, especially for such a stressful event. The owners make you feel comfortable, safe, at home, and well cared for. My room was spacious with a private bathroom. The whole inn was fresh, clean and quiet. The inn has been newly renovated, but they managed to maintain the historic feel of the home. In particular, I enjoyed the gourmet breakfast on both mornings of my stay! I would highly recommend this place.

We were lucky to find this bed and breakfast nestled near the Blue Ridge Parkway in Roanoke, Virginia as they have only been opened for a couple of months as a B&B. The rooms were great and the beds were very comfortable. We traveled with friends and booked three rooms and we all woke up the next day very rested and refreshed! Our hosts, Lynn & James were very accommodating (even managing to find us a cold beer after a long, hot day of motorcycle riding!) The breakfast was wonderful and we enjoyed all of the artwork throughout the beautiful home.
