Welcome to The Collins House Inn

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 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. 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. The Collins House Inn is an ideal place for family gatherings, reunions, and retreats. We have the facilities available for small business meetings.

It is our pleasure to offer our guests a memorable and comfortable stay in our Diamond Collection and AAA Diamond Award-winning bed and breakfast by offering:

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.

Innkeeper’s Corner:

The innkeepers at the Inn are suffering from a case of spring fever. We are not going to complain about our winter. We are originally from Minnesota, and by those standards, it has been relatively minor. We haven’t even had an opportunity to use the new shovels we purchased last fall. However, our thoughts are turning to spring and gardening. Most of our yard work this spring will be focused on the side yard with plans to put in a hedge, some bushes, and add a flowering tree. Out front, plans will focus on adding more azaleas. In the main garden, we will be planting herbs and vegetable plants–produce we can use for serving our guests.

 During the spring season, the innkeepers will be busy working on new packages that will be available for the spring season. We will be offering packages involving Fly-Fishing,  golf, wine, and dinner in different combinations along with Song of the Mountain packages so stayed tuned to our website.

Chris & Cindy from Fort Wayne, IN write, “Sue & Mike: Thank you so much for the beautiful, clean, welcoming visit! Chris & I truly enjoyed our stay! Thank you Sue for singing happy birthday to Chris!

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.
