We stayed over Valentine's Day weekend. The owners are very friendly, warm, and welcoming. The house is cozy and relaxing. We hiked 6 miles and the owners packed us a picnic lunch for the trip! We came as guests and left as friends! Definitely returning!

My wife and I were in Marion Virginia in Mid October, and we are fortunate enough to have planned a stay in The Collins House. Wonderful hosts, and a beautiful town in a very scenic area of Western Virginia. The hosts were very accommodating and helpful in recommending things of interest in the area. Breakfast was delightful. Mike, we forgot...

Thank you for the most generous review. We are delighted your stay with us was a pleasant one and we look forward to visiting with you again should you make your way to SW VA. Too bad about the grits. We will just have to go without them. Ha. Ha.

The Collins House Inn was a delightful stopover on our roadtrip journey. The hosts were both charming & helpful in all aspects. The location was great, just off the Interstate & so close to Main Street Marion, that you could skip there without getting breathless. Breakfast was very nice, with home baked quiche the highlight.

I highly recommend The Collins House Inn. We enjoyed staying at the Inn in Marion, VA while we visited local venues. We spent our days visiting Burkes Garden, Hungry Mother State Park and Grayson Highlands State Park in Southwestern Virginia. The Collins House is beautiful and made our evenings delightful with wonderful rooms, comfortable beds & private baths. The breakfast...

Collins House is not an Inn but a typical owner-operated B&B in a nice stately house on Main Street in a quiet small town. Some street noise in late afternoon but none at night. Fairly nice walking area with plenty of restaurants. Breakfast, offered at a fixed time, was the main downside: bland egg cassarole, tomato slices, pear, small muffins....

MikeandSueEdwards, Owner at The Collins House Inn, responded to this review

This is an interesting review. You liked the room and location, but breakfast was not to your pleasure, so I will address this. One of the reasons breakfast is at a fixed time is because we are a small B&B. Guests stay at B&B's because they enjoy the ambiance of sitting around the table sharing breakfast and conversation. Because breakfast...

I had organised a tour of the Appalachian's on Harleys for a group of 8 friends. We are all from England. The Collins House was our penultimate stay before completing our tour. Marion provided the perfect location for our overnight stay. I like booking into accommodation that have character and charm (rather than chain hotels). The Collins House lived up...

We thank you for your fantastic review. We are delighted you enjoyed your 'ride' in the USA and hope you and your group will return because there are many trails in our mountains perfect for motorcycles. It is always a great experience to entertain our cousins from across the Pond and to help make their experiences in our country enjoyable....

We have traveled extensively from east coast to west coast and not found a more charming and comfortable B&B. Beautiful, interesting decor with great attention to detail throughout the house- even in hallways and bathrooms which provide very plush towels.
