Welcome to The Collins House Inn ( open year round )

What is your passion? Is it hiking or biking on pristine trails surrounded by spectacular sights Nature has provided? 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 Marion area and Southwest Virginia has some of the best fly fishing in the State.

From Marion, you are ‘stone’s throw’ from both Hungry Mother State Park and Mount Rogers National Recreation Area where the highest peak in Virginia can be found—and experience the view from Whitetop Mountain.

Julie & Ian from Norwich Norfolk, UK, titled their review of The Collins House, “Simply The Best. Mike and Susan are fantastic hosts; nothing was too much trouble for them, They made us very welcome in their warm and friendly home. The house is immaculate and we thoroughly enjoyed Susan’s stories about the history of The Collins House Inn. We very much enjoyed talking to Mike, a lovely man. We have traveled to many places and stayed in many B&B’s and as the title says, this one is The Best, an excellent place to stay. Perfect. The home made breakfasts were delicious. We will fondly remember our stay here as one of the best. Thank you to our fellow travelers from Ohio-a charming group of motorcyclists with whom we spent a memorable and enjoyable weekend. We hope to see you all in the future. Thank you Mike and Susan.”


Kevin from Roswell, GA wrote, “We looked for a midway stop from Atlanta to Baltimore and were so lucky to find The Collins House. We were greeted with warm hospitality, a beautiful, spotlessly clean inn, and a marvelously comfortable bed. To say nothing about the breakfast! What a fabulous start to the new day. Thank you, Susan and Mike.”
