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.

Thank you for the kind review. We are also thankful you brought us the rain! Boy did we need it and it was just gorgeous wasn't it? I have a handy quote for that thought - What should you do when it rains? Let it. God bless. More

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

Rocky Mount, VA is a half-way point for us to meet our good friends from Alexandria, VA. After previewing several Bed and Breakfast Inns we decided upon The Caliborne House. We had a wonderful experience as this was our first time ever to stay at a Bed and Breakfast. The house is beautifully decorated to the time period in which... 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

The Claiborne House Bed and Breakfast is a beautiful and peaceful Victorian home, The innkeepers, Tony and Shellie make you feel at home from the moment you check in with a glass of refreshing iced tea and one of Shellie's homemade desserts. We indulged in the most decedant brownies on our arrival and then another day, enjoyed a real homemade... More

July 12, 2008 This is a beautiful home attended to by a gracious host and hostess. Because we were traveling to southern Virginia for an evening wedding, Shellie made sure our room was available an hour earlier than normal check-in so that we could make an on-time appearance at the celebration. That goes a long way in showing the type... More

We wanted a getaway that was within a couple of hours from home. We arrived in the early evening. After parking in the ample parking lot around the back of the house, we walked around to the front door, passing a beautiful garden with a little fishpond. We were greeted at the door by Tony, the warm Australian-born innkeeper. My... More

The Claiborne House was booked from the internet based on other Trip Advisor reviews and it proved to be a good choice. As you walk in the front door you realise that this place oozes character and it is very much a 'Southern' property. As you sit in the lounge in the evening you can just let your imagination go...
