You need a change of altitude!

COME TO THE MOUNTAINS
Stay with us at The Claiborne House Bed and Breakfast in blue ridge country Virginia!
View from Grassy Hill/Landmark Mountain just 2 miles from The Claiborne House B&B (This is Franklin County Virginia. Cahas Mountain is seen to the far left)
The Claiborne House Bed and Breakfast is centrally located in Franklin County Virginia
Looking South from Grassy Hill (hike this Nature Preserve just 2 miles from here!)
HINT - At 3 o'clock each day - just for an hour - right now this Summer - you can see the elusive and rare "FAME FLOWER" on Grassy Hill Natural Area Preserve. It is found in only three places in Virginia, Grassy Hill, our Bald Knob (also a few blocks from us of which Rocky Mount got her name), and in Fredericksburg VA. Another nickname for this Fame is fleeting flower is "Flower for an hour". Click here for a trail map.

The Claiborne House Bed and Breakfast is in the eastern foothills of these Blue Ridge Mountains. We are just 15 miles to the Blue Ridge Parkway, and are located at the half-way point of America's Favorite Drive in Virginia. Learn more here

ISN'T IT TIME FOR A BLUE RIDGE DAY Y'ALL?
