Lawless is about Franklin County Virginia Moonshiners!

Matt Bondurant wrote the story of his grandfather and great uncles in the book "Wettest County in the World" which has now been made into a major motion picture and about to hit the big screen in August! It is about our Franklin County Virginia, of which Rocky Mount is the county seat. The movie is now called "LAWLESS".

Breakfast and Bocce - Doesn't Everyone?

May 19, 2012: Here at the Gillum House Bed & Breakfast in West Virginia we are involved with many things that sometimes overlap a bit. THAT is what makes being an innkeeper interesting. One thing that helps is having really nice guests and a husband who will serve what I cooked for breakfast on mornings like today.

Welcome to the Porch!

 in Virginia
Welcome to the Claiborne House Bed and Breakfast Porch!
Sit a spell, that can wait!
"I believe all that is wrong with the world can be attributed to the shortage of front porches and the talks we had on them. Somewhere around 1950, builders left off the front porch to save money, and we've had nothing but problems ever since." Philip Gulley from Porch Talk
