I would come back to Clinton NC again just to stay at this house. Its like staying at a rich aunts mansion. I was a little nervous when our travel coordinator booked a B&B instead of an old reliable chain hotel but the Richert house and its hosts are 10x nicer than the most expensive hotel I've ever stayed in!...

I was moving my mothers' belongings from Fl. to Pa. and Clinton, NC was the halfway point. Having owned a B&B for 9 years, my wife and I have certain (we think reasonable) expectations. We always stay at them, but they always disappoint us. Until now! For us, a B&B must have three key ingredients to get it right; the... More

While on business in Clinton, NC I came across "The Richert Inn" while driving. This B and B has great curb appeal, but the newly renovated inside will blow you away. Dave and Susan were incredible hosts. They took care of every need from start to finish. My team and I have ongoing business in Clinton, NC and will always... More

I had the pleasure of staying at the Richert Inn, formerly the Shield House. The Inn has new owners, Susan and david Richert. The Inn had been remodeled. The Inn reopened June 2, 2014. The Inn is must stay. The hospitality is awesome. Beautiful common areas, beautiful spacious room and breakfast is delicious.

It's a pleasure to be writing a positive review. Too frequently these days there is much to be critical of. Make no mistake, this is a B & B, and my excellent rating is based on the type of establishment. First of all, there are no nice hotels in Clinton, just an older second rate Comfort Inn with horrible beds,... More

I absolutely fell in love with the Shield House during my stay. I traveled to Clinton, NC on a business trip and the Shield House was a strong recommendation. The owners are extremely friendly and gracious. They immediately made me feel comfortable and at home. The bed was spectacular!! My job was a bit stressful that week, but coming to... More
