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

Thank you for the kind review. It was very nice to have you for your special anniversary getaway. We look forward to another visit. You were here pre day-lilly blooms, but perfect for the peonies in the garden. I hope your photo turned out well. God bless, Shellie 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...

The Claiborne B&B is a delighful and wonderful place to stay for one or more days. Our host and hostess are very charming and friendly. Our room was extremely comfortable, private and luxurious. The inn is in a very lovely location convenient to many local attractions and is an easy walk to a wonderful restaurant that just opened in 2007.... More

Our NASCAR weekend experience was enhanced with our stay at the Claiborne House B&B. The room was great, the atmosphere stimulating. The food was excellent, to include the extra snacks and chocolates left for us. The innkeepers were very personable and friendly. Thanks so much for making it a great weekend. Nora & Gigi

We knew we had an overnight in the Roanoke area and wanted to avoid the standard "by the highway hotel/motel" stay. We could not have been more delighted with the treasure we found in nearby Rocky Mount, Virginia. Nestled between Smith Mountain Lake resort and Roanoke, the Claiborne House is beautifully decorated, immensely comfortable, and very affordable. The Innkeepers made... More

Built in 1895, and life in this inn is just like back then. Simple, quiet and a nice experience. We stayed 4 nights. The gardens are simple, suggest you take a book down to the benches near the 3 layer pond and just relax. It's 20 minutes from most any place around Roanoke. Very nice breakfasts. Clean - which is...
