My best friend and I came down for the weekend. She has been to Jefferson before. She knew of all the shops to go to in town. Our stay at the Claiborne House was a lot of fun. Ann and Jerry made us feel right at home. The house was beautiful, all the rooms are also very nice. We enjoyed... More

The Claiborne House Bed & Breakfast is located in a house built in 1863. It is a beautiful, well cared for home with several rooms that are rented out throughout the year. Most of the rooms are named after poets and a book of poetry by the poet is located on the bedside table as well as a Bible. The... More

Let me begin by saying what a fantastic, historic, and friendly town Jefferson is and staying at the Claiborne House B&B was truly a home away from home experience. Not only do the owners, Ann and Jerry, make you feel like family, they go above and beyond to make sure that your stay is as comfortable, relaxing, and entertaining as... More

We have never stayed in the Claiborne House in Jefferson before. It is a grand home from the 1800's as most in Jefferson. Our room was small bur comfortable (just 2 of us). We stayed during the Pilgrimage where homes are opened up for touring and the reenactment of the Civil War. Our breakfast was good and visiting with the... More

Went to spend a birthday night. Booked the best room with fireplace (it was cold) to have a fire in the evening-no wood. I asked twice and then gave up. Owners were very friendly and fun to visit with but I was mostly disappointed. Lots of reviews talked about breakfast- Not to die for- Canned biscuits and cinnamon rolls that... More

The owners were very nice and accommodating. Rooms were clean and beautifully furnished. The only thing my wife and I didn't like was the doll in our room. It was really freaky, so it spent the night in the closet. lol! Awesome breakfast the next morning.

Jerry and Ann are very friendly and knowledgeable about the history of Jefferson. Rooms are clean and breakfast was wonderful. Jerry waited for us to come back from dinner and gave a tour of Jefferson in a golf cart. We had a blast! It was the personal touches by the owners that made the experience so great. I have already... More

My husband and I loved our time at the Claiborne House! Great hospitality, beautiful rooms and relaxing porches. Very close to downtown Jefferson. Jerry and Anne do an amazing job! We can't wait to go back!

How lucky we are to live within a short 45 minutes away from the Claiborne House. To get away for a night or two.. this is our special place to escape to. Ann and Jerry, as always, are so welcoming and accommodating. Such fun and lovely hosts. The bed in the Keats room is so comfy that I fall asleep... More
