Beautiful decor, spotless rooms and scrumptious breakfasts. The innkeepers were friendly and helpful. The grounds, porch and entire house just beckoned you to recharge those batteries. We will definitely keep this on our list.

Thank you so much, we were privileged to have you stay with us, and hope it was a soft place to fall. Please come back when everything is blooming and there is something nice to actually see from your private balcony on your room (which may be next week!)

My first experience staying at a bed and breakfast. I loved the feel of home and the innkeepers were friendly and there if you needed them. The breakfast was delicious! I would definitely stay there again! !! The room was absolutely beautiful and I enjoyed the koi pond. I strongly recommend to everyone

Thank you Harper's Ferry Friends! With the new Harvester Performance Center within walking distance we have been privileged to have more first time B&B guests and are really digging them (that is our concert goer vernacular for we think you are great!) We can't wait to share the porch with you on your next visit, now that spring has sprung.... More

We so enjoyed Shellie"s tips on activities nearby and the delicious breakfast (wow!). I would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a place with all the special touches of a B&B. We went to nearby Mt. Airy ("Mayberry) which was really fun.

We stayed in the Wash House and enjoyed a wonderful and private get away. Only blocks away from The Harvester, the Claiborne House is perfect for those attending a show. Breakfast was wonderful and was served in our cottage for a small fee. We will definitely visit again!

Our stay at Claiborne House B&B was the perfect ending to a lovely evening. We came for a (fantastic!) concert at the amazing Harvester Performance Center. Claiborne House is conveniently located in a quiet neighborhood with gorgeous mountain views all around. The weather was wet and cold (January in the mountains!) but our room was warm and the bed comfortable... More

Why else would we go back--we have thoroughly enjoyed both of our stays at Claiborne House B&B. We were here both times to stay after concerts at the incredible Harvester Performance Center (within walking distance). The first time we stayed in August 2014 in the Blue Ridge room which we found comfortable and private and looks out over the quiet... More

We stayed for two nights during the Martinsville NASCAR race weekend March 2014. After a 6 hour drive, we arrived to the grounds, which are quite beautiful. We arrived after the check-in time frame, so we had self check in (a note left on the front door had all the info we needed). We went to our room & were... More

We stayed 5 nights so we could tour the area. It's not easy to decide the best aspect. The hosts give so much that this is much more than just a B&B, for example a fridge with complimentary sodas, tea and coffee in proper china cups. A parlour with games, books, comfy chairs. Front porch siting in the evening watching... More

Pros: Location, decor, breakfast, wi-fi Cons: Our pillows were too thick and hard Tip: For a special occasion, ask for the stand-alone cottage. The Claiborne Inn is a bed and breakfast located within walking distance of shops, a restaurant, and the Harvester Theater. Check-in/out was easy and quick. All the rooms are upstairs; so, light luggage is recommended. We had... More

We stayed there for only one night, but we will go back. The trees were lovely in October, and the town is quite lovely. You should be advised that this town is nearly 2 hours drive from the interstate (but worth it), and the route from I-81 will take you down a scary one-lane road that will make you wonder... More

Oh no! Thank you for the sweet review our latest favorite guests, we really appreciate it knowing how busy you are with your big move. The "oh no" was because we aren't two hours from the interstate, at all. We are just 30-35 minutes from I-81. Our location page has a map, and we share a link to that on... More
