We have stayed at Clay Corner Inn multiple times during our visits to VT to spend time with our daughter. The innkeepers are extremely hospitable and the rooms are spacious and no detail is overlooked. Every morning we are treated to a wonderful breakfast of fresh fruit, homemade cereal and a hot dish (this time it was wonderful huevos rancheros!)....

My husband and I loved our stay at clay corner inn. The outdoor sitting areas were lovely and tranquil. We had a great nights sleep on the super comfortable bed. The owners were very warm and friendly but gave us space and privacy. The breakfast was delicious and healthy. We can't wait to return for another visit.

Clay Corner is a lovely bed and breakfast, walking distance from VT campus. We stayed in a suite and were completely accommodated with everything we could possibly need. Though we didn't have opportunity to use it, they have a beautiful in-ground pool and relaxing yoga area. It's a very clean and comfortable, homey environment, and Nicky and Rick are very...

We spent a Saturday night here. This B & B has eight rooms spread over three adjacent houses. It's well-managed, and the location in Blacksburg is perfect---in a quiet residential area, but only a 5 minute walk to Virginia Tech and 5-10 minute walk to the shops and restaurants along Main Street. There is a small pool here, which makes...

This was our second time at the Clay Corner Inn. We stayed in the Blacksburg Suite. The room was nice and clean and comfortable. The breakfast was great. We just stayed overnight for one night - but this would be a great suite for a long stay.
