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!
