My husband and I were visiting Clinton for a family death to attend wake and funeral. I knew about this B&B but had never had a reason to stay over. I took this opportunity to do so and was greatly pleased. The owners were excellent hosts, greeting us at the car to assist with luggage and to introduce us to... More

I came into town for a wedding and absolutely loved this B&B. They were so accommodating and friendly. I stayed in the "Nawlins" room, which had beautiful wood floors and a newly remodeled bathroom. I had friends who stayed in other places in Clinton and to say the least, I made the much better choice. When I come back to... More

This hidden gem is tucked away in downtown Clinton. It is a lovely place to visit and I'm so glad I found it. They made a delish low carb breafast for us. The owners are very friendly and accomodating. We loved our visit and we are already planing to go back around Christmas time.

Everything was just fantastic. The house was adorable, it was near downtown which was conveniently near our relatives in Clinton. You could tell that Dave & Susan had recently put a lot of work into renovating the property. The bed was really comfortable (and I often have a hard time with hotel beds but not this one!), and the breakfasts... More

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
