We stayed at this lovely Inn for five days in June. Its location right in the center of town and a short walk to campus makes it incredibly convenient, but the real reason I recommend it is hospitality of the inn keepers. They are warm and welcoming in every way. Our room was so comfortable and clean, the pool was... More

Another cozy stay at Clay Corner Inn. Nice location! Nice rooms! Many conveniences like shared kitchens and separate family rooms that you don't get at most B&B's. Complimentary soft drinks. Nicky, Rick and staff always make you feel at home!

We stayed at the Clay Corner Inn for my daughter's graduation. The staff was wonderful and went out of their way to make us feel welcome and comfortable. We stayed for three nights and enjoyed breakfast every morning. We were in the Magnolia House and were able to use the kitchen and living area every day.
