Visit Website


The Ivy Bed and Breakfast is an warm and romantic 1903 Victorian home in historic Warrenton, North Carolina, near Lake Gaston and the Kerr Lake reservoir--a few miles from I-85 and I-95, and a short drive from Richmond, VA, Raleigh, NC and Henderson, NC. The Ivy is just a leisurely stroll to quaint downtown antique shops, historic churches and a courthouse square, on Main Street, USA. A full, candlelit breakfast is served on fine china in the elegant dining room and we discuss with you what you would like to eat. The menu can range from traditional Southern to "fancier" fare.

Nothing but pleasant

I stayed at the Ivy while in Warrantor for business. Great little spot. Ellen cooks the most delicious breakfast. I wanted to take her and her breakfasts home w me. I would love to stay here again. Perfect place to come relax after a long day at work.

Best place ever!

Lovely Home In Warrenton

3.2 on May 21, 2014

The house is nicely remodeled and my room was neat, clean, and comfortable. I had a private bathroom that was also very nice. Much nicer than a stay at a chain hotel. The neighborhood is very interesting and makes for a nice walk.

An AMAZING experience

A beautiful home with a warm and inviting atmosphere. Our hosts were so good to us. Truly felt like home away from home.

Absolutely Lovely

Had to take my parents to a funeral and this was one of the only places to stay. I am so glad we did! Under the circumstances of our visit to Warrenton we couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. Welcoming and comfortable. Great breakfast and innkeepers. If I ever find myself back in the area I will definitely stay there again. And I highly recommend it to anyone that needs a place to stay in the area.

Fabulous Inn and Innkeepers

5 on February 22, 2014

The Ivy is a delightful inn. Everything from the scrumptious three course breakfast to the incredibly comfortable bed was perfect. The innkeepers made my stay very enjoyable. When my rental car broke down, they went above and beyond to help.

Ivy B&B review

The Ivy B&B is lovely and very clean. Our room was spacious and the bed was very comfortable. If we are ever in the Warrenton area again we will definitely want to stay at the Ivy. The innkeepers were very friendly and we enjoyed a wonderful breakfast. I would highly recommend this B&B.
