Greeted at the front door by the pleasant innkeeper was the beginning of a great stay at The Claiborne House. After showing me my accommodations, I enjoyed relaxing in the parlor with hot tea. The attention to details impressed me... from the amenities offered to the well appointed room! The bed was so comfortable and the lighting was perfect for... More

Memorable home with waaay comfortable beds. Great breakfast. I grew up in Rocky Mount, have been away for over 30 years. What a pleasant surprise to find this beautiful B & B and accommodating owners right in the middle of my little 'ol home town. Thank you guys, I'll look forward to my next visit. Frank

My wife and I were traveling through the Rocky Mount area on business and tried the Claiborne House on a hunch. We were glad we did. The room was large and very comfortable. Shellie went out of her way to make us welcome and to help us enjoy our quick visit to Rocky Mount. The Inn is located in a... More

We had a wonderful four night stay at The Caliborne House. The host family consisted of a charming couple, their two daughters and an Irish Jack Russel Terrier. (seen only upon request!) Our accommodations were roomy and comfortable. The breakfasts were delicious and just the right portions.

We thoroughly enjoyed you both, as did Junie. The day after, the other guests wanted to know what the fashion show held for the morning - but with you gone JBJ just wasn't in the mood to hit the catwalk.

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

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.
