Great place to have an event - An Eventective User from Blacksburg, VA

We hosted a small whiskey tasting event at Clay Corner Inn's new Speak Easy restaurant. The food was great. Shrimp and cheese grits, heirloom tomatoes, pulled pork, and deviled eggs. The service was awesome, Q our server was attentive and very engaged with our group's needs. The Prohibition theme was a nice touch! Highly recommend Clay Corner Inn for your next event.

Great Place for Small to Medium Size Gatherings (~40 People) - An Eventective User from Blacksburg, VA

Clay Corner Inn hosted our graduate program's Holiday Party for about 40 people and it was wonderful. We were really happy to support a local, small business, and Josh and his staff provided excellent service and were extremely accommodating. The catering was also great. I would highly recommend the Clay Corner Inn to anyone looking for an event space.

Amazing Venue for any event! - An Eventective User from Roanoke, VA

My husband and I recently got married here in an all weekend event! Our ceremony was on a Thursday and our reception was the Saturday following, but we rented out the entire Inn Thursday through Sunday. And to say the Inn and the staff was accommodating would not nearly be enough. The rooms and houses were amazing, and the pool, patio, and yard were exceptional. It was so perfect and wonderful in every way. We had an amazing time celebrating, having out with our friends and family, and relaxing by the pool. We plan to use the Inn on many more occasions and hope others will be inspired to do the same. To all the staff and owners, we thank you so much for such a wonderful experience and can’t wait to stay with you again!!

Great place to have an event! - An Eventective User

We had a small gathering for a gender reveal event then stayed the night in one of the king rooms at the Inn. Everything was great from the staff, the room, and the amenities. I would definitely host another event there again in the future!

We were so honored to be a part of this very special day! We wish your family all the best during this most exciting journey.
Family rehearsal dinner - An Eventective User from Blacksburg, Va

During covid it was very hard to plan a wedding. The Clay Inn went above our expectation to accommodate our family. The food was great and we were the only ones in their dining area. It felt like being home and that was special. My mom, 85 years old, felt safe and enjoyed the ambiance with the beautiful fireplace. We recommend this place.

Management Response
Your group was such a pleasure to have. I'm glad we were able to have your event and that your group felt safe. I sincerely appreciate the review and support of our Inn.
A great place for a small wedding! - An Eventective User from New Haven, CT

I worked with Josh and his team to plan my wedding and he was fantastic to work with from start to finish! Josh was always the first to remind me that it was my day and not to get too stressed over the details. We decided to switch our wedding from inside to outside at the rehearsal dinner due to the weather being nice on our wedding day and it wasn't a problem. Josh was totally accommodating! My bridesmaids and myself also want to say thank you to his teammate, Charlie, who was also FANTASTIC! That man never your wine glass run empty, and for that, we were all thankful! Charlie is officially the gold standard. Josh's wife, Jenna, also was a great help on the day of and made sure our guests knew where to go and when. The food was outstanding as well. Our family and guests still mention certain dishes they enjoyed whenever we bring up our wedding day. Overall, our day ran smoothly and I'm beyond thankful that I chose Clay Corner Inn as our wedding day venue! Can't wait to visit again!

Management Response
Your wedding was amazing! We aim for an experience and cherished memory. My team is beyond and blessing and they appreciate your kind words. We wish you all the best in your new ventures and welcome you back anytime.

A Fabulous Find! - An Eventective User from Blacksburg, VA

I found the Clay Corner Inn on the internet. I was looking for a local venue to host a small dinner party for my sister-in-law on her birthday. I had never heard of the Inn but, after I contacted them and visited the Inn itself, it seemed perfect for my event. The manager, Josh, was friendly, welcoming and informative. He assured me that the Inn would be my "living room" for the party and he was right! What a wonderful night it turned out to be! The food was delicious and was prepared on site. The service and setting was excellent! Josh and Charlie worked very hard to make sure everything was perfect! Our guests were delighted by the space and everyone enjoyed their dinner and their experience at Clay Corner Inn. Who knew such a delightful space was available for a small (but very special) event! Clay Corner Inn is is a B&B...but, it turned out to be so much more! I highly recommend that you check them out!

Management Response
This birthday party was an absolute blast! From planning, to preparing, to executing I enjoyed every step of your event. The rooms filled with laughs and smiles made my day. Thank you for allowing us to put this event on for you.
Wonderful for an intimate event - An Eventective User from Brooklyn, New York

We wanted a venue that felt like we were in our living room but didn't want the hassle of dealing with caterers and clean-up; Clay Corner Inn was perfect! Josh, the General Manager, was attentive, communicative, and thorough. The staff were friendly, kept our glasses and appetizers filled, the space clean and orderly. We dropped a box of decorations and a slide show which the team setup for us, rearranged the space to accommodate our needs, and were able to answer all of our questions and meet all of our needs with no delay and the utmost responsiveness. Our event was on a game-weekend: we welcomed over 100 people to our gathering and had no issues with parking, getting the food or beverages we wanted, or securing the space for the time we needed. I cannot say enough about the space and the staff - highly recommend the Clay Corner Inn for an event or gathering!

Management Response
It was an honor to have this event and we sincerely appreciate this review! Your family is amazing and we were happy to help out in this situation.
Retirement Party - Perfect in every way - An Eventective User from Roanoke, VA

We hosted a retirement party here on a Sunday afternoon with about 30 people. It was absolutely perfect! Josh is the general manager and he is made for hosting. He made it so easy for me and paid attention to every detail. Charlie was his assistant and he was wonderful. They made a very relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere for all of us. This is MUCH better then renting a banquet hall or hosting at a restaurant. It felt like you were in a nice cozy home with lots of room to spread out but not so big that the guests got separated. They enjoyed the back porch also. The kids played football on the front lawn. They made a delicious appetizer spread that seemed like way more than I paid for. They were very generous. The coffee and lemonade bar was super cute and delicious. They made sure I had all the cables needed for a slideshow presentation. I honestly couldn't imagine a better place to host an event. They arranged the furniture specifically for the type of event I wanted to hold. I am very excited to share this review so others can enjoy The Clay Inn for their special events. It is very affordable. You will be taken care of much more than any other event I have hosted. My guest were from Roanoke and Blue Ridge so it was a bit of a drive. They all said they loved it! The drive it worth it because of the service, atmosphere and nice catering. I'd be happy to be a reference for anyone needing more information. THANK YOU Josh and Charlie.
