Innkeepers Susan &; Mike Edwards extend an invitation to you to stay at The Collins House Inn and experience Southwest Virginia. Our guest rooms are luxurious, and our breakfasts are memorable. We are dedicated to detail and warm hospitality. You will discover The Collins House Inn is a hallmark experience and a wonderful inviting alternative to typical hotel lodging…even if you are just passing through and Marion is on the way to your destination.
The Innkeepers have been busy getting ready for 2016 travelers to SW Virginia. The Inn is the perfect place for people to celebrate special occasions, whether it be a party, dinner, or family get together. Make your plans now. We have been busy working in the yard. We have picked up the winter debris, transplanted plants, added plants, and the garden is in. The strawberries and blackberries are blooming, and their fruits should be ready to pick in June. A mother bird has decided that one of the ferns hanging in the gazebo is a perfect place for her nest. I discovered this when she flew out of the gazebo when I entered. As far as I can tell, there are 3 hungry mouths in the nest. The Collins House is home to our fathered friends.
Traveling the Hwy 81 corridor this spring season has just become more enjoyable when you stay at the Collins House Inn Exit 45, Marion’s #1 Bed & Breakfast.

William, from WV left us with this memory: The poem “Sea Fever” by John Masefield ends with these lines: “And all I ask is a…quiet sleep and a sweet dream when the long trick’s over.” You have graciously provided the pleasant accommodations to ensure that guests may enjoy quiet sleep and sweet dreams at The Collins House. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with others!
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.”
Dorine & Kevin from Roswell, GA write, “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.”
Sue & Bill from Dandridge, TN write: “Each fall, 4 of our cousins and spouses have taken a trip to interesting destinations. We have stayed in a number of B & B’s. We must tell you that The Collins House Inn is one of our favorites, and we will return. Breakfasts were splendid and the hospitality of Mike and Susan was so genuine and sincere. Thank you both for a very special family time! P.S. I love the dog, Sophie.”
