We spent a Sunday night here and we were the only people in the place. The owner, Chris, was super nice, the food was good, the coffee excellent and this old home was decorated for Christmas very nicely. Lot's of history in this house built in the 1880's. Our room was lovely, the bed was very comfortable and the whole place was incredibly quiet for where it is located. It's also pet friendly so we were able to bring our four legged baby along. The price was very reasonable. We will definitely come back some day.

My stay at the Claremount was wonderful. Honestly the house is beautiful. My room had its own bathroom and foyer. There is also a desk in the room if you have to do office work and free internet. Oh and my bed, A-MAZING I could sleep in it for days. I love the deep tub I had a wonderful salt bath and they provide all natural soup, lip balm and shampoo and conditioner. They are very nice gifts. The host family is simply lovely. Holly made me feel right at home and even joined me for breakfast. Breakfast consisted of stuffed blackberry French toast, sausage and fresh fruit, with that I was given orange juice, water and hot tea to drink. I personally requested the blackberry French toast and they were happy to oblige. I hope to visit very soon with family and friends. I bought two of their mugs and they are wonderful. This is a must stay place if you ever want to get away for a mini or long term vacation. Especially if you like shopping at boutiques and/or enjoy the outdoors. Berry College which is only 10 minutes drive from The Claremount provides several hiking, biking and running trails. Down town is not even a two minute drive and it provides boutique shops, spas, and restaurants.

My husband and I have stayed here twice, and we absolutely loved it. The house itself is beautiful inside and out, and the owners are very nice. The photos of the rooms do them very little justice--they are all much more impressive in person.

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).
This bright airy room will refresh your spirit with cream-tone walls, embroidered sheer drapes, and light-green linens. The delightful queen-size Heirloom Renaissance headboard was custom made for one of our ancestors. Its simple elegance combines with the luxury mattress and linens to offer guests the sweetest slumber. In the dressing room there’s an oak vanity where you can prepare to face your day — or night. A corner-set marble vanity with aluminum basin resides at the entrance to the bathroom. The bathroom is one of the home’s originals and offers a delightful claw-foot tub.
Nightly Rate: $95 - $145
Decorated with soft pinks, burgundies, and an array of greens, this room offers a deliciously warm ambience.

Light streams in through the large windows, making the lush Victorian armchairs the perfect place to read a book or sip coffee and chat. Every detail invites you to relax and unwind in this spacious room. The private bath features a magnificent, large claw-foot soaking tub with shower. This room is often referred to as our Bridal Suite.
Nightly Rate: $140 - $175
Offering intimate dark-green walls with cranberry and ivory accents, the Magnolia Room surrounds guests with rich comfort. The soothing tones continue through the king-size, cherry sleigh bed.

The bathroom offers one of the many unique features of the house: It has a skylight that allows natural light to pour into the bathroom. The bath features a modern tub/shower.

Cozy dark-blue walls and exposed golden wood molding make this room memorable, while white burnt-velvet sheers soften its bold windows. The elevated queen-size Baroque bed, with white, gold, and soft-blue linens, gives this room a stately feeling. There’s even a twin-size daybed, which can expand to sleep two adults or children, offering a cloud of comfort whether you’re enjoying cable TV or sleeping the night away. Down a short flight of stairs, you’ll find a carpeted dressing room that offers a burled walnut vanity and a selection of books for guests to peruse. Off of the dressing room, the bathroom features an irresistible claw-foot tub with shower. The modern sink and toilet by Kohl are classically designed to fit the unique space.
