There's a new kid in town!

Well, maybe not new as she is older than we are, built in 1854, but is new to the bed and breakfast business.
Early Inn is a just opened (November 2014) fantastic bed and breakfast located right here in downtown Rocky Mount Virginia. 

We highly recommend this renovated historic home and location for your special events and functions, located at what was formerly called "The Grove" which is 10 acres in town.
The Claiborne House B&B (that's us) will be open Thursday through Sundays beginning in 2015 (scaling back midweek traffic). 

If you find yourself looking for a fine place to stay in the area mid-week or if The Claiborne House B&B does not have availability, we hope you will check out our new neighbors Early Inn

WE BOTH MAY BE OLD, BUT WE AREN'T GRANNY'S HOUSE!

The Claiborne House B&B was built in circa 1895 and is a Queen Anne Victorian. Early Inn was built in circa 1854 and is a Greek Revival style manor. Choose your poison, go ahead, we want you to! Both B&Bs offer modern amenities, private baths, WIFI and superior hospitality. Both are located within the Town of Rocky Mount to park it and walk to events, restaurants and more.

Tell Keri the innkeeper at Early Inn we mentioned them. We wish them all the best, with gobs of happy guests.

A designer's hand

Late fall and winter is a fabulous time to see the forest through the trees in Virginia. 

We hope the "off-season" inspires you like it inspires us here at The Claiborne House B&B

This photo was taken at Twin Lakes State Park which is 2 hours from Rocky Mount in central Virginia. Not too far from, just an hour away from Historic Appomattox Courthouse where our nation reunited:
