We just returned from a two night get-a-way weekend, at The Claiborne House Bed and Breakfast, where we celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary. While this was our very first experience staying at a bed and breakfast, you can bet, it won't be our last. We stayed in the Sierra Suite and loved everything about it, from the king size bed...

It was our pleasure to have you stay with us! It is always fun to have guests who like to explore the area and make unknown discoveries. With all of our country back roads here you never know what or where you will turn up. We won't forget the discovery you found and told us about. "No act of kindness,... More

I accidentally found this gem of a Bed & Breakfast while I was searching the internet. I'm very happy I did! I travel alone for the relaxation and solitude it affords me. I was a little apprehensive about noise from cars, etc., when I chose a room at the front of the house as there's a street directly outside. I... More

Such kind words, thank you! You should see the view of the leaves outside your window TODAY (Oct 17th), it would take your breathe away!

We enjoyed a very pleasant stay in the beautiful Claiborne House. Shellie was a wonderful hostess. The breakfast and afternoon snacks were delicious. There was tea, soft drinks and water available at all times. Our favorite things were sitting on the large wrap around porch reading and relaxing in the parlor listening to music. My husband, a real coffee lover,... More

The leaves are getting ready to change here as the temps drop overnight, it is a perfect time to sit on the porch with that cuppa and a book! The sugar maple out front turns a brilliant orange. I will update our website with pics. You would absolutely love it! Thank you for the nice words. We so appreciate guests... More

We spent the weekend at The Claiborne House in celebration of my husband's birthday. We stayed in The Sierra Room, which was very roomy, with a very comfortable King size bed. This particular room has a seperate entrance from the rest of the home, which makes it convenient to the private parking in back. We found this turn-of-the-century home to... More

We enjoyed having you and wish you could have stayed longer. The half of the porch under repair has now been primed and Tony is at Lowe's as I type this for paint. Gray, of course. Something in Victorian times about Gray keeping the birds out of the spandrels. God bless. Shellie More

We very much enjoyed our recent stay. Being in a big Victorian house brought back fond memories of my childhood; especially sitting on the porch with a slow rain shower. The recommendation of and the discount for the Red Clay was a nice touch. We will definitely stay here again.

Everything about the Clairborne House met or exceeded our expectations. Shellie was friendly and wonderful to talk with. The garden was a wonderful place just to sit and talk while listening to the pond gurgle. Parking was out back and offstreet with plenty of space. The neighborhood was easy to walk through with a historic cemetary nearby that allowed many... More

You better be careful as you have a chance of making it onto our favorite guests list. I know I said it, but have to say it again, you must see this place in the Fall! It is breathtaking. Especially the sugar maple from your room, the Blue Ridge Room. God bless, Shellie More

We're so happy you had a great visit with your friends! The room next to you for the one evening was a wedding night. Maybe I will offer ear plugs as part of a weekend getaway package when we have a wedding night on the premises. :) LOL! God Bless. More
