Wishin' you wuz fishin'?

Evening reflections at Fairy Stone State Park - Claiborne House B&B
The Claiborne House Bed and Breakfast is in Rocky Mount Virginia, Franklin County, also called the Land Between the Lakes. 

From Rocky Mount you have Smith Mountain Lake to the North (Citation Striper and Bass Fishing), Philpott Lake (Night Fishing for Walleye and Small Mouth Bass) and more to the South, and Fairy Stone State Park and Lake (catch a creel full of Crappie). To get to Fairy Stone you can cross the Smith River, noted for its citation brown trout! 

We have clean mountain streams, and even an old homestead that sits on the Carolina Road where you can visit The Pigg River to cast a fly for rainbow trout.

If fishing interests you, come on out to the Blue Ridge Mountains and see what we've got on tap!
