We do not double charge here at Clay Corner Inn. If you choose to use our catering services there won't be a "property rental fee". The charges will only be catering which varies a great deal depending on what you want. Some bridal showers just do a few hor d'oevours to a multi course meal for a private dinner. We are very flexible and want the package to meet your vision.
If you simply want to rent the property without any other services we offer a very simple structure. Our base rental ranges from $199-$399 depending on the time of year. Contact us with the dates of your event for a quote.
I hosted a bridal shower for my sister and I cannot say enough good things about our experience! The food was delicious and the staff did a wonderful job. The event was beautiful! It was such a pleasure to work with Josh and everyone at Clay Corner Inn! Clay Corner Inn is a beautiful hidden gem in downtown Blacksburg!
The Clay Corner Inn is a beautiful venue. The property is spacious allowing for plenty of room to gather. The Inn was the perfect place to host a Bridal Shower. Joshua was very helpful and truly is an expert with event coordination. The food was outstanding as was the customer service during the event. The Clay Corner Inn is a hidden gem in Blacksburg! I'm so glad I found it! Thanks again for everything!
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!
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!
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.
