We thoroughly enjoy being at the Baird House. It is beautiful any time of the year. The house is furnished with beautiful time pieces. The bedrooms are comfy and you spacious! The breakfast is the best home cooked meal I have ever eaten. Deede and Tom know how to make you feel like family. They are the best at what... 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

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!!

My husband and I just stayed at the Baird House. Tom and Deede are wonderful hosts who immediately make you feel at home. Our room was cozy, quiet, clean, and beautifully furnished. This was our first experience at a B&B and we were extremely happy with our stay. The breakfast was delicious. There are sodas and snacks available at any... More

What a wonderful place to stay. We stayed 4 nights in the Sarah Jane. We came to welcome our new granddaughter and Tom and Deede took care of us like we were part of their family. The room was great, the breakfasts were superb (we are so spoiled now. How can you go back to eating cereal for breakfast?) We... More

We stayed in June and had a fantastic time. The room was clean and inviting with a great porch with a swing and rocking chairs. The river was nice to cool off in and to look for local stones.There was an apple tree and blackberry patch awaiting your picking. Breakfast was awesome. Make sure and get the recipe for the...

We stayed here last year and decided that we enjoyed it so much that we would return again this year. Tom and Deede are such wonderful hosts and always makes us feel like we are at home. We chose the Mary Elizabeth room this year which is the only room downstairs. It has a wood fireplace that we just gave... More

We had an awesome stay at the Baird House! It was very relaxing and so laid back. We were welcomed in like we were family. Great food....especially the apple french toast with apple cider sauce but then again, the bacon wasn't too bad either (haha). Tom and Deede are such gracious hosts. They have done a tremendous job revitalizing this... More
