When we first moved to Rocky Mount after buying The Claiborne House B&B we discovered The Pigg River. Not only is The Pigg River a trout fishing paradise, but also provides many great swimmin' holes. When the girls ...

Step back in time in Virginia's Blue Ridge.
Flying is no longer the adventurous fun it once was. Drive Virginia’s Blue Ridge instead.

Story
Tagline
Proudly own and operate The Claiborne House Bed and Breakfast in Rocky Mount Virginia along with my incredible husband Tony.
Introduction
Co-owner with my Aussie-American husband Tony of The Claiborne House Bed and Breakfast in Virginia. Married for 27 years with two beautiful daughters, one cat Miss Maybelle and a dog named Junie.

I am a blogger through and through, after 12 years of innkeeping, blogging has helped me to find my niche. 

I am an avid outdoor photographer and nature lover, and after moving to Virginia I discovered the Commonwealth was the ideal place to sharpen my focus. I became a Virginia Master Naturalist purely to help better understand my surroundings, where I live and how to better identify and communicate what I see around me in these beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains.

I hope you will follow my blogs and enjoy the ride.

There is no better place to stay in Pocahontas! Right in the center of town to walk to everything, the owner has thought of amenities most have not thought of, and has outfitted this guesthouse immaculately! There is simply no comparison the value found at Lesmeister Guesthouse compared to a hotel "room" you will immediately feel the difference, it is like coming home! Only it is a luxurious home.

Spectacular off season stay at the lodge. From the delicious home-cooked breakfast to the quiet that surrounds the lodge it was one of the highlights of my trip to Missouri. There is a spectacular view of the sun coming up from the lodge's upstairs balcony if you rent that room. The hosts are fun and immediately make you feel welcome.

The White Cedar Inn is in an excellent location to explore Freeport. The inn is friendly, clean and they serve up a great breakfast! Monica is very helpful with things to see and do in the area, I recommend her blog which often features lighthouses and special sights within an hour's drive. My favorite room is the Winthrop Fog room as it has a king bed and overlooks main street outside your window. It is great to read a book in the rocker and people watch. You won't find better value in Freeport, or friendlier hosts!

This year we are staying overnight at the lovely Village Inn which also accepts pets and is just 3 miles to the GVBF. We can go browse a couple hours, leave for lunch and come back and hit it hard. Then sleep overnight before the long drive home. If Dad gets tired of the bookfair he can go back to the room for a while. It is a win win. If you love books - don't even think HalfPrice Books compares to this bookfair! Best part about it is if there is an author you have not read but thought about reading, you can get a book 70-90-% off and give em a shot. The books are all brand new in perfect condition. I cannot recommend the Green Valley Book Fair enough, it is a total day of fun for this family of four! BEWARE - It is addictive! We have to block off the calendar to get up there. Shhhhhhh...

Beautiful new Virginia state park on the James River. Great for primitive camping, fishing and paddling. The day use area has a little playground for the kids and trails to walk or hike with the dog! I highly recommend a visit to this state park.

Thomas Shepherd Inn is my top choice when I visit Shepherdstown WV. The location is perfect to walk to the theater, shops and restaurants. The owners are very friendly and welcoming, yet allow privacy and space. The perfect combination for a perfect stay! Breakfast was homemade and delicious. Jeanne uses fresh fruit and local ingredients, which we appreciate! I would stay there again if ever in the area, and I recommend them to you!
