This was my escape from home! I had a couple days to myself and wanted to make the most of them. I could not have chosen a better place to go! The Claiborne House is beautiful, CLEAN, quiet, and every possible comfort a normal person sould want is there. The bed was comfortable, linens lovely, lighting for reading, and chairs to sit in - and this was just the guestroom! The bathroom was excellent - clean with nice towels and amenities.
Breakfast was wonderful - fresh fruit, juice, omelet, potatoes, tea biscuits, and wonderful coffee one morning and pancakes, scrambled eggs, and bacon as the entree with the fresh fruit, juice, and marvelous coffee the next. Lovely presentation and they do not stint on the portions.
The Red Clay is the restaurant just a block from the B & B with food that is excellent and the prices were much lower than I expected for food that good. My crab cake dinner (2 crab cakes) and 2 sides was $16! Thank you, Shellie for recommending this restaurant!
As far as what to see or do? This innkeeper KNOWS the area and whatever your interests, she has suggestions and routings. The D-Day Memorial in Bedford is a must see. There are so many activities and parks in Rocky Mount - music - that I want to go back "in season".
