Welcome to our award-winning  Historic Inn located in the small, historic town of Christiansburg, VA. The Oaks is the only Select Registry Bed and Breakfast in the Mid-Atlantic region to receive the prestigious Four Diamond Award for 20 consecutive years.

Just  two miles off I-81, this imposing Queen Anne Victorian sits atop the town's highest hill, the Oaks is nestled in the beautiful mountain highlands of southwest Virginia. Warm hospitality, comfortable, relaxed elegance and memorable breakfasts are the hallmark of The Oaks. Opened as an inn in 1989, listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1994, the tall, sunny windows, turrets, stained glass, wrap-around porch, perennial garden, complete with gazebo and fish pond offers an endless fascination to guests from around the world.

Beautiful landscaping provides an ever-changing backdrop for the five historic oak trees, one of which is believed to be one of the largest white oak trees in the Commonwealth of Virginia. Surrounded by lawn and the oak trees, the inn faces Main Street, once part of the Wilderness Trail blazed by Daniel Boone and Davy Crockett.

The entire history of the house is steeped in romance. Major W.L. Pierce built the inn in 1889 as a wedding gift for Julia Baird. Seven Pierce offspring were born at The Oaks. Julia, who devoted her entire life to the keeping of her wedding gift, died in the house just shy of  99 years of age,

Featured in more than two dozen magazine articles and the TV series "InnCountry USA", The Oaks was selected for the cover of three books, including the travel guide to inns, published by the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
