Stay at the Claremont House B&B!! Of any B&B at which I have stayed, this is, by far, the most outstanding. Wonderful people, wonderful breakfast, and wonderful environment. We brought our pug with us, and that was so nice since we didn't have to board her. The history of the Claremont House is wonderfully depicted inside, and that is a great bonus.

Nostalgic B & B

The Claremont transport you back in time and you get a real feel about what it was like to live back in the time of the Civil war. that being said it still has all the modern amenities that make life comfortable today. We loved it!

Great place to visit

If you want to glimpse back in time, this is the B&B to visit. I loved the place and the management was great as well.

Fascinating House. Nice Experience.

Our room was very spacious and comfortable. It was dark and quiet .. . maybe a little TOO dark and quiet. We prefer places like this with character to cookie-cutter hotel rooms. A little more "specialness" to the breakfast would have been welcome.

A Gem of a place in downtown Rome

Loved our room and the hospitality of the hosts, and ESPECIALLY the scrumptious breakfasts! Mom is an antique lover so she enjoyed looking through the rooms and decor. Chris and Holly are very friendly and gracious hosts. I have since returned to Claremont House and am planning for another stay in Spring 2016.
