Pardon me, is this seat taken?

The other half of Bed and Breakfast is important to us

We often get calls asking if we serve breakfast with the stay, and although I can't understand why they ask as it is a part of our name, I do get the idea that they have had some bad experiences where a CRUMMY CONTINENTAL was all they were served.  For shame, I say, to all those who serve crummy continentals!

At The Claiborne House Bed and Breakfast we emphasize the second B with a bountiful breakfast.  We want our guests to enjoy breakfast, as the saying goes "All happiness depends on a leisurely breakfast!"

If you are not comfortable sitting at a communal breakfast table, have I got a solution for you!  How about having breakfast delivered to your room?  Yes, you can, I knew you would want to know.  We have this option available in two rooms (for an additional fee) where we will deliver what I have donned "The Red Hot Lovers Breakfast."  This is usually the same fare you will receive innside the Claiborne House at our dining table, but it is packaged in a large basket to be delivered to your door!  Don't worry, no plastic cutlery, no paper plates, we will treat you right!

I apologize for not having any photos of the Red Hot Lovers Breakfast, but when we deliver we are usually serving at the table as well, and as Tony (the outside innkeeper, aka the Aussie love of my life for 21 years will attest, around here the food must be served hot! It is a fetish I have, nothing worse than lukewarm food or lukewarm coffee for that matter, blech!)

The Wash House Cottage (aka The Love Shack) or The Sierra Suite are the two rooms you want to choose from if you would like the Red Hot Lovers Breakfast delivered to your door.   I say door, as we don't have it set up at a table, we deliver it and you can enjoy it while lounging in your pj's or robes, together, just the two of you, after all that is the whole purpose to this Romantic Getaway get-a-way from it all!

If you choose to sit innside at the dining table, expect a delicious meal, with great conversation and lively hosts.  This is not your grandma's house.
