Never having been all that excited about B&B's, I have to write this review for all others, who think, now, like I did then. We had heard about Claiborne House from friends, and decided to overnight there on our way from northern Michigan to the east coast, this past November. Shellie and Tony, the innkeepers, could not have been more... More

Staying at the Clairborne was a lovely experience. Upon arrival we were greeted with brownies and a choice of beverages. The room was large and comfortable. Breakfast each morning was delicious and also allowed us to meet other guests. We would highly recommend a stay at this B&B. . The breakfast was outstanding each morning,

This bed and breakfast so adorable. We rented the shack and it had so much charm just like you would expect from a bed and breakfast. I wish we could have spent more time there! The location was within walking distance of antique shops and restaurants and the Harvester, if you would like to go see a concert.

A luxury B&B well situated in an interesting town. Close to good bars, restaurants and music venues. Good nights sleep and we could walk to most places we needed in town. I would recommend as a good place to stay on the Skyline Drive and Blue Ridge Parkway.

We are repeat customers, this was first time in summer when we could see everything in bloom. Claiborne gave us the much needed peace we needed. My favorite part was sitting in the dark by the pond listening to nature, my husband's favorite was Shellie's amazing breakfast!

We eloped and this was the most wonderful place we could have picked! The house and the outdoor setting were beautiful, especially the front porch! Even on a hot day it felt very nice with the breeze blowing. The accommodations were perfect and the food was fantastic as well! Well done Claiborne House! We'll be back!

My husband and I enjoyed every minute of our stay here at Claiborne House. On arriving we were greeted warmly by our host, then we headed for the garden.
