“Romantic getaway in historic home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2009

If you like bed and breakfasts at all... or even think you might... you will love the Claiborne House. It's a historic home filled with beautiful antiques, tastefully decorated, with porches and clean bedrooms -- mostly with Jacuzzi tubs. Breakfasts are delicious gourmet food. We stayed for several days in the Wilde Room, and loved it. Elaine and Steve, the owners, are very nice people who make you feel right at home immediately. They give you cookies in the evening that are as good as the breakfast food. The Wilde room has a spa tub. It's large, on the second floor up some steep stairs. They have coffee in the morning on the second floor and a refrigerator full of water bottles. The house is located near (3 blocks away) from the downtown Jefferson area, where there are tons of antique stores and several great restaurants. We went for our 12th anniversary, and plan to return soon. Great place!

My husband and I had chose the Claiborne House for our honeymoon destination. What an incredible experience! Everything is done to perfection from the decorating to the bath treats beside the jacuzzi to the food that was served for breakfast. The cleanliness of the Claiborne House is impeccable! We've made our reservations for our 1 year anniversary at the Claiborne House!

The room was very clean and comfortable. It was decorated beautifully from the bed to the claw foot tub and shower. We had a gormet breakfast each morning and snacks during the day. We were in walking distance of the town. We were there May 1 thru 3 of 2009 for the Pilgrimage weekend. There was a parade, Civil War reenatctment, many quaint stores to walk through, food vendors and sites to see. Jefferson is a beautiful friendly town and we would go back just for a restful weekend.

This was our first time staying in a bed and breakfast. We didn't know what to expect. From the moment we got there we felt very welcomed in Steve and Elaine's home. They are very sweet people. We loved the Wilde Room with the jacuzzi tub. It was nice and relaxing after a great dinner at Lamache's. It was really neat sitting at the dining room table for breakfast with total strangers and getting to know each of them. One couple was even from where we live. The breakfast was different from what we normally eat, but it was good. I would have liked it if there was cold beverages available in the kitchen to drink and more of a variety of snacks. There is not alot of space to park. Overall, our one night stay at the Claiborne House was a good one. We will be back!

We have stayed at Steve and Elaine's several times, and we absolutely love their hospitality! Our accomodations are always first class, and the food, well I would stay for the breakfast alone!! Gourmet home cooking! They also have a spa, and we had a hot stone massage on out last visit. We both raved to Steve about his expertise in massage.

What a lovely B&B! We stayed in the Browning Room which is furnished in gorgeous antiques without feeling like a museum. There is a private entry with a long porch and the room has a massive Jacuzzi, double shower and a fireplace that was lovely even on a not-so-cool evening. Our only disappointment was that we slept through the breakfast provided but, if it tasted only half as good as it smelled, it was oustanding! Coffee in our room did help us get started. We hope to come back again.

We stay in the Keats Room. It is so romantic. The 2 person Jaccuzzi and King size bed. Very relaxing. The Holden's are the best Host and Hostess one could ask for. They make you feel at home. The breakfast is the best I have ever had at a bed and breakfast. They make the best fruit soups. The whole package is great. They also offer different packages for special ocassions. We have stayed here in the same room for the last 3 years on our anniversary.

  • Liked — Friendliness of the staff!!!!!
