The Collins House Inn is a “Green Inn.” You will discover that the floors have radiant heat; the windows are double-glazed, the water is double-filtered, and the air is filtered and re-circulated. The B&B has central air. There are six inches of foam insulation in the exterior walls that conserve energy and make the inn very quiet. Guests of The Collins House Inn have repeatedly commented on the beauty of the house and the comfort and relaxation they feel as guests.

The Collins House Inn has 3 large areas where guests can get together, relax, read, converse, or play cards or other games. In the cooler months, guests can gather around the gas fireplace for comfort and ambiance. These areas are also suitable for quilting parties, baby or bridal showers or other small gatherings and meetings.

The guest rooms at this bed and breakfast are named in honor of Collins family members (Ella, George, Mary, and L.P.) with the exception of The Nettie. The rooms on the upper level all have mountain views. Three of the beds have headboards that were made from doors found in the basement. Doors, floors, and other features are original to the house. The window treatments, shower treatments, and bed skirts were all custom made.

The George

Soothing, yet elegant, this spacious mini-suite provides the perfect setting for a quiet, relaxing getaway. Presently, this is the only guest room at the bed and breakfast that offers a fully vented gas fireplace. George Collins would have felt right at home in this room with its deep forest greens and burgundy hues.

About the room’s namesake, George A. Collins purchased the property in 1919 from Ella’s children and built the original house that stands today. George, a resident merchant, opened the Collins Brothers Department store in downtown Marion in 1898 along with his brother Lewis Preston Collins. Sr. George never did marry.
