Tom and DeeDee are just the right kind of people to, but run a B&B. They are warm and caring and completely unflappable. The southern breakfasts are amazing. The other guests were a great bunch and if there is room at the table DeeDee sits down with her coffee and joins in the conversation while unflappable Tom continues clearing up... More

First stay at a bed and breakfast and it was fantastic! We stayed in the Appleview, which was great. Tom and Deede were absolutely wonderful hosts who made us feel like family. Will definitely be back for more stays. They also made excellent recommendations for activities in and around the area.

We had the pleasure of enjoying the Baird House for an entire weekend recently. Tom and Deede are so warm and inviting you will feel as if old friends are welcoming you home. The breakfast alone is reason enough to stay there, but we found so many reasons to fall in love with this place. Walking peacefully along the river,... More

We stayed here for 1 night and boy do we wished we could have stayed a couple! We booked the Apple Tree View room and it was wonderful! Tom and Deede are such gracious hosts and breakfast was delicious. There are homemade cookies and cake as well as coffee,tea and soft drinks available whenever you want. They have a large... More

My wife & I couldn't have had a better stay. Baird House is beautifully restored & decorated. Breakfasts were hearty & delicious. But most of all, the owners are just incredible. They are real "foodies", & the local restaurants they recommended were spot on. We also shared a couple long, entertaining conversations with them, capping off a very relaxing weekend.... More

Just returned from yet another fabulous stay a The Baird House! I first discovered this gem in October, 2003 and have returned many times over the last 12 years. From the moment you are greeted at the door you feel like you're home, away from home. Warm hospitality, beautiful decor, comfortable accommodations, and the BEST BREAKFAST you will ever be... More

I knew I'd made the right choice when I called to make my reservation. Tom (the owner) and I chatted for almost 15 minutes. Southern hospitality and I wasn't even there yet! Prior to our arrival, Tom warned us about some navigation systems that incorrectly steer guests the wrong way based on their address. He emailed a detailed turn-by-turn list... More

Thanks for your nice comments, Mike. Deede & I sure enjoyed our time with you and your wife. Thanks also for telling us about the temp. of the Jacuzzi water on the day you checked out...I checked the thermostat of the water heater that day and it did need to be adjusted higher so I'm sorry it wasn't as hot...

Spent two days here relaxing and used this place as our starting point to explore the Blue RidgeParkway. Absolutely lovely with spacious room which was extremely private and quiet. Very clean, down duvet was heavenly. Nice jacuzzi tub. Setting is very rustic and our gracious hosts recommended some great local restaurants as well as activities. Would come back any day!!
