We booked a weekend at the Claiborne for a romantic weekend for our first anniversary. It completely lived up to my hopes. We were greeted and given a tour of the house when we arrived. The room was fabulous! They had just redone the room and we were the first to enjoy the new "look". When we came back from...

I have stayed at the Claiborne House 3 times. My husband and I try to make it every 6 months, this past time my best friend and I went for a girls weekend. Every weekend there has been absolutely perfect. The rooms are so comfortable. Steve and Elaine have done such a beautiful job in preserving the beauty of the...

This was a lovely location for a quiet, relaxing, intimate honeymoon! We stayed in the Browning Room... the whirlpool jacuzzi and large walk in shower were wonderful! The owners were out of town, but the caretaker was amazing! A gourmet breakfast was served every morning... I couldn't have asked for a more wonderful honeymoon! Thanks Clairborne House!

I stayed at the Claiborne House for a business trip. Steve and Elaine are congenial and the room is wonderful. I love the ironed sheets and the feeling of another time. The room is just as it should be for an antique town and a house that fits the town perfectly.

We recently returned from Claiborne House B&B. It was not intended to be a special occassion, but it certainly turned into one! The rooms were fabulous! Everything was very tastefully decorated, clean and very welcoming. Elaine and Steve were two of the nicest people you would ever want to meet. They made you feel very comfortable and at home. I...

I recently had the pleasure of staying at the Claiborne House for a business trip. The room I stayed in (Keats) was just right for my needs. At night, I stretched out on the couch in the parlor and watched a movie by the fireplace. I felt just as comfortable as I would in my own house. The owners, Steve...

The Claiborne is the best B&B experience! We've been visiting Jefferson for 15 years and have stayed at many different places. This has the best beds, the best breakfasts and by far the kindest innkeepers of all.

The Claiborne House is a beautiful home with breathtaking rooms. Elaine greeted us at the door and saw to our every need until our departure two days later...next time we'll stay longer! Be sure to schedule a full massage at the Day Spa, and if you want a special romantic touch the private Candlelight Dinner is incredible. A perfect combination...

The Claiborne is a very nice home. Our room was up some steep steps. There were some flaws (shaving light didn't work, shower had very low water pressure, trains passing by constantly) that made us feel that the room was nice, but overpriced for what you received. The owners work very hard to maintain a classy B&B, but it didn't...
