“Weekend getaway to remember!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 September 2011

We traveled to Marion, Virginia for a friend's wedding. The town is small and has a lot of southern charm. The Collins House Inn also has a lot of southern charm, but the proprietors, Dave and Sheila, combine their southern hospitality with an attention to detail you would expect from a five star hotel in New York or Los Angeles. The website pictures do not do the Collins House justice. It is a beautiful old home that was lovingly restored. Every room was immaculate. Beautifully decorated and also spotlessly clean, with not a speck of dust to be found. Dave and Sheila are also fantastic hosts, and full of information about the surrounding area, from things to do to restaurants. The room had excellent wiireless connectivity (a must as I needed to do some work from the room) and the bed, a king, was spacious and comfortable. Each room had a separate thermostat, and our stay was quiet and peaceful. Additionally, the inn is eco-friendly, with recycling and energy saving light fixtures in the rooms.

The breakfast was gourmet comfort food. Our first morning was quiche with dill and bacon, fresh fruit, a blueberry muffin, and sausage grits. The second morning was a blueberry cream cheese stuffed french toast with bacon and fresh fruit. Sheila was also careful to ask about our dietary preferences.

Be forewarned if this is your first visit to a B&B, The Collins House may spoil you, and other B&Bs may never live up to the high standard set by Dave and Sheila!

Kudos to Shelia Quattrocchi and Dave Fields. This talented couple renovated an abandoned house into a beautiful B & B. They did all the work themselves; H/A/V, painting, carpentry, glazing, millwork, everything. It took them five years. It is modern and very comfortable. Be sure and look at the scrapbook. Their artisan skills are exceeded only by their hospitality. We thought we were staying with family instead of inkeepers. The gormet breakfasts are to die for. If you go to Madison, be sure and stay with them. You'll be glad you did.

On a previous trip to Marion, VA to hike the nearby Appalachian Trial, I struck up a conversation with a couple in a local restaurant. Turned out they are the proprietors of Collins House Inn, David Fields and Sheila Quattrocchi. They gave me a lot of good info about places to eat in Marion and invited me and my buddies to walk up after dinner and see their B&B. I was curious to find the location of a web cam that I been watching weather conditions in Marion. The webcam is on the porch of the Collins House. Check it out and you will see the Collins House is located very near to downtown Marion, so you walk everyplace. After dinner I walked up to peek in the window of the Inn -- and all the lights came on. David came out and said, “Come on in" and invited me and my hiking buddies for a tour. David spent five and a half years taking the house apart and reassembling. It is beautifully done. Five bedrooms, each with private bath. Mix of their antiques, purchased antiques and reproductions. I returned with my wife this weekend for our 38th wedding anniversary. I must say this was the best of all 38! We love the convenience of the Collins House to the restaurants and the Lincoln Theater. We parked our car and walked the entire weekend, The town of Marion sits a beautiful valley just off I81 which makes the Collins House not only easy to get to, but strategically located for visits anyplace in the southwest corner of Virginia. David and Sheila are not only great host, cooks, tour advisors, and historians, but people we now count as friends. We will be visiting the Collins House Inn for many more anniversaries and I highly recommend you do the same for special occasions or just a special weekend!

We were extremely satisfied with our stay at The Collins House Inn during one of the NASCAR weekends. This bed and breakfast provided the perfect solution for the needs of my wife and I. It is only a short drive to the track and just far enough away to allow you to escape from all of the hustle and bustle of the NASCAR circuit. The accommodations were pristine in every way and the food provided was absolutely delicious. The owners of the facility did an outstanding job recommending local attractions that were specific to our interests. I would highly recommend this bed and breakfast.

Just returned from 3 nights at the Collin's House Inn; it is wonderful. The other reviews are quite comprehensive and very accurate, so rather than repeat what they have to say, we just want to say, "Treat yourself to a wonderful stay!" David and Sheila, the heart and soul of the inn, have created the perfect spot to rest, relax and enjoy yourself. Thanks for a great stay.
