What do birthday parties, weddings, and corporate meetings have in common? They are all events that require a venue. Sometimes you can host these events in your home, at the local library, or your corporate offices, but when you need something different, how do you choose the best venue? At The Inn at Virginia Tech, we have hosted just about every type of event imaginable.

Events Galore! Celebrating Special Occassions at The Inn at Virginia Tech

When choosing a venue for your special occasion, the four main things to consider are space, price, food, and staff expertise. Let’s talk about breaking this down and seeing what types of events you can hold at The Inn at Virginia Tech. 


Sure, you can host most birthday parties at home, but what if you need more space or a more centralized location for the guests? Then, it’s time to look into holding the event in an alternate space. 

One advantage of hosting a personal event in an alternate setting is that someone else can take care of the setup, cooking, and cleanup. Another perk is extra usable space for guests to mingle and relax. You can also invite more people to make your party have a much more significant impact. 

Imagine turning your party menu over to a chef and not having to cook a thing. Doesn’t that sound like a slice of heaven? That’s one of our specialties. Let us cook for, serve, and clean up after your guest so you can enjoy your special day. 

Here are a few examples of events that are well suited to our space and accommodations at The Inn at Virginia Tech.
