Welcome to The Collins House Inn

Or is it music that stirs your soul and The Song of the Mountain is in your bones? Motorcyclists—are you up to the challenge of the Back of the Dragon? Maybe you just want to ‘get away’ and treat yourself and that special someone. The Collins House Inn in Marion, VA, in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains of Southwest Virginia and just off I-81, is your perfect destination.

Innkeeper’s Corner:
Greetings to our past, present, and future guests. We have completed our first year as innkeepers at The Collins House Inn, and what a memorable year it has been. We have enjoyed getting to know the town of Marion and making new friends. Discovering the beautiful area we live in is an on-going process. Spring has come to Marion, VA, and we have planted our gardens and have enjoyed experiencing plants and trees bloom. And there have been, what ‘we’ would call, some moments. In December 2013, there was a 3-car accident at our intersection, and one of the cars landed on our front porch and in the living room. The car parted the porch pillars and blew the front door into the house. After major repairs to the house, the fence, and the landscaping, The Inn is back to charming curb appeal. We re-opened in February. In our first year, we have made respectable changes. The main dining room has gone from 3 individual tables to one table for our guests to gather for breakfast and share their stories. The Ella is now a king mini-suite. We have added a Kuerig coffee system and other improvements to make our guests stay enjoyable. In our first year, we have become members of Bed & Breakfast Association of Virginia, (BBAV) and put Marion on the B & B map. In addition, we have retained the AAA Diamond rating and have attained B&B Diamond Collection status. In Addition, the Inn has been awarded The Green Travel Award from Virginia Green. That’s a lot of inspections. But we want you to know that you are guests at a quality bed & breakfast, and that we, as your hosts, will do everything we can to make your stay with us a pleasurable and comfortable experience.

Rick & Leslie, from Henrico, VA write: “Susan and Mike, Thank you for a lovely stay! We feel very special to be your first guests with the new transition. We couldn’t have asked for a nicer place to rest after hiking in Hungry Mother State Park and on to tackle the Creeper Trail today. (Dinner and wine at Handsome Molly’s Bistro fantastic!)”
