This is an iconic bed and breakfast - everything you imagine that life would be like in the 19th century (except that it has indoor plumbing, of course). Beautiful woodwork details, very quiet, very private, and a delicious breakfast. It doesn't disappoint - for sure! Would definitely put on the list for a return visit.

My husband and I stayed here on our 12th anniversary. We wish we could have spent more time at this fantastic bed and breakfast! It was very interesting and Chris sat down with us for breakfast after he had cooked and served us and told us about the rich history of Rome, Ga and the beautiful home! We had a wonderful time and we will return! Thanks for a phenomenal anniversary!

We would be delighted to return to this B&B. However, we would select a different room than the Magnolia Room. It is a lovely room until you wish to use the toilet, which is snugly situated between the tub and the wall (more than a bit uncomfortable).

Although I was traveling on business I elected to try this nice bed and breakfast for a change of pace. I was a great decision, providing a relaxing atmosphere after a stressful day at work. Chris even cooked my breakfast part early enough for me to enjoy and learn some history of the house before heading off to work around 6:30. It really helped me out and was appreciated. thanks agian for the wonderful experience and hopefully I can be a repeat customer.

The Victorian mansion is truly spectacular and packed with antiques and playful details. The hosts are friendly and gracious and accommodated my odd schedule without any fuss. The breakfast was tasty, the bed comfortable, and the whole experience was a pleasure.

What a find in Rome! The only problem we had, and it was minor, was that bed was a little too high. We almost had to use the steps provided to get into bed.

Stayed again (2nd time-its close to my Aunt's house) at this charming Bed and Breakfast-this time in the magnolia room; lovely, quiet, comfortable. There was the greatest Christmas tree in our room, it was full sized and decorated so cute, nice ornaments and a good collection of Christmas themes. We were happy with the because we didn't put one up at home as we are traveling this season. There were trees on all the guest rooms and one really awesome big tall tree in the parlor. We appreciated the hospitality of Holly and Chris and thonk they are a charming couple. I noticed in a post that someone complained about lack of table decorations at a wedding, I bet the bride decorated her own tables-a lot of people do that maybe to save money. Anyway this week, while we were there each table had a winter wonderland theme. We had a laugh because here were Snowmen all over the house but it was 73 outside; weird weather but true. Great trip-We'll be back in Feb.!

Our daughter had her wedding at Claremont. The Innkeeper was extremely hospitable, caring and flexible with all our decor and use of their facility. I would recommend Claremont for a wedding for under 125 people. They catered the event and the food was good....the food table needed more decor. The rooms were very quiet and the beds very comfortable. A great memory!
