From the minute you arrive the owners make you feel welcome. The historic home is beautifully kept and the grounds are an oasis of beautiful gardens and outdoor spaces. My room was perfect. The mattress was heavenly and the sheets were so luxurious I asked the owner about how to get some for myself. There is so much to do... More

What a great stay we had! We've stayed at numerous b&bs and what makes them so special is the attention to details and most importantly, the innkeepers. This place hits the mark. Shellie the innkeeper was so full of information about the area and gave us a list of attractions to see. We ordered the picnic basket and a list... More

I have to say, I slept in the most beautiful bedroom I've ever been in! And the bed was very comfortable. I've had back surgery and I know about mattresses. It was very quiet and restful. It's a very short walk into town, so you don't need your car. I saw a concert at the "harvester" and was very impressed... More

If 5-star is excellent, 4 is very good, 3 is average... This place gets a 2! Even though nothing went wrong with our stay, we'd have to say that this was well below the average of where we have stayed in the past. We have seen the Innkeeper twice: as we came in and were shown around and as they... More

We think this guest must have stayed somewhere else when they wrote: "In neither case were we shown warm hospitality...." and Unlike other comparable structures we have visited on the trip, the products were very standard: "American Hotel Corporation, Made in China". This is an 1895 Queen Anne Victorian "structure" with 130' wrap around porch and is the town gem.... More

Wanted a room within walking distance to a concert venue. Man I scored big finding this B&B in a historic house with an awesome view over town.

We live in Roanoke and came down to Rocky Mount for a date night/staycation. We had a great time at the annual Strawberry Festival, followed by good food at Bootleggers and a good show at the Harvester. Our stay at the Claiborne House was perfect! Good food, good people, great service, and beautiful clean house and room! Also, there is... More

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.

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

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!
