Announcement from your Virginia Innkeeper!

Even Frankel Fitzpatrick Claiborne our resident gnome is cool!
How about that.  

I just wanted y'all to know, people think ALL VICTORIANS are dripping gingerbread frou frou and girlie.  The Claiborne House Bed and Breakfast in Rocky Mount Virginia is a sophisticated lady, but she is not girlie.  

Nothing against bed and breakfast inns that are girlie, that have pink, velveteen, dried flowers and baskets everywhere. We just don't. We don't serve uber gourmet mystery-meals either, we serve homecooked-hearty breakfast, served hot!

We just are not that way. We host NASCAR FANS TWICE A YEAR, GUESTS WHO LIKE TO HIKE THESE BLUE RIDGE MOUNTAINS, MUSICIANS AND MUSIC BUFFS, INNTERESTING PEOPLE FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD.  Last year we had a guest from near Auckland New Zealand (who lives 5 miles from where Tony grew up) and guests from Russia.  Just to share a few of the non-frou frou cool guests we have. (See our guest rooms here)
We have off-street paved parking. Ride on!
I tell people often as they think it is part of some innkeeper regime to not really share the truth about innkeeping, but really folks, we have the greatest guests! Just last week we had a Capt of a SWAT Team here all week.  rat tat tat...

Do I have your attention now? We are not "Retired" we do not have "Staff" as we do it all ourselves, so whatever you see - yeah that was us, we did it! No this house was not inherited by us, we work hard for our guests and hope y'all make memories here in Blue Ridge Country Virginia!  See our Hanky-Panky Romance Packages here.

Shellie your innkeeper @ The Claiborne House Bed and Breakfast in Rocky Mount, VA - Blue Ridge Country! You can book your room online at any time right here

The Claiborne House Bed and Breakfast is 15 miles to three exits off The Blue Ridge Parkway in Virginia - we are HALF WAY on the BRP in Virginia, take MP 121 the Roanoke Exit South. 250 miles from DC and 250 Miles from VA Beach.
