The Good: The Claremont House is a beautiful antique old house. It reminded the guest I was staying with of the chateau her family used to own in France. A truly ornate and beautiful home. The pink room that we stayed in was incredibly roomy and comfortable. The bed was soft and very comfortable with clean white linens. The tub was comfortable for a bath. Wifi worked great. The owner Chris is friendly and cooked up a standard great breakfast (pancakes, bacon, fruit). Good location too. It's a couple minute drive to the down town area. The Bad: I understand that old victorian homes require a lot of maintenance. Unfortunately, that shows in some of the small details. The room had some paint chipping and the toilet roll holder was coming out of the wall. Also, the wooden floor in the bathroom could use a wax. While the room was clean and comfortable, there was stain on the sofa in the room. Overall: My guest and myself enjoyed the stay thoroughly. We emerged rested and relaxed which is what we wanted. Thus, The Claremont House met expectations and did a good job. However, small details kept me from giving it a higher rating.

Cute nice place that I wish we could have stayed longer. Important to note that this is a bed and breakfast, older home, but would note a few things for management. 1- loved that you accommodated our late arrival and early departure. We were sorry we couldn't arrange breakfast earlier as we had to be at Berry College by 8am and breakfast was scheduled for 830am.. Another time perhaps. 2- cats... I would make it more apparent to guests that cats are in and around home. I am pretty allergic, but didn't react fortunately. 3- I really would advise a serious deep cleaning. Our room was good, but dusty. There was mold in the coffee pot and left over coffee from whenever the last guest was there, there was mold on the shower curtain and the curtain bar above the shower needs some stabilizing. 4- the house is beautiful old structure, but needs some TLC, painting updates, new pillows, new sheets, new towels etc ... everything is a bit worn out. - Thanks... another time.

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.

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!

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.

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.

Came for valentines day. Had a great time. Inn was clean and beautiful. Both dinner and breakfast were very good. Would recommend.

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 friends and I met here for a weekend get away to celebrate a milestone birthday. We had wonderful hosts and a comfortable stay!

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.

The house is beautiful, the grounds are so serene and the decor makes you feel like you are back in time! We love to stay here and the location is perfect!
5 on November 12, 2014
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.

We stayed for an anniversary and couldnt have asked for more. Great location, beautiful outdoor space and the home is jaw dropping. Chris and Holly were great, we will be back!

Chris, the Innkeeper is a wonderful host and cook. Very spacious room and comfy bed. We would come back.
4.6 on July 20, 2014
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.
4.8 on June 29, 2014
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).
4.4 on April 25, 2014
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.
4.6 on April 14, 2014
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.
4.8 on April 12, 2014
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.

This is a Beautiful place to stay. The house is decorated so well. The hosts are very friendly. We have decided to have our wedding there this spring!

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.!
3.2 on December 01, 2013
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!

My little family of four couldn't ask enough questions about this historical home with its mysterious doors, strange silver decoration in the guest bath, odd holes in the walls, and massive window mantle. Fortunately, the owners were very kind and fielded all of our questions, making our stay fantastic! The food was beautifully prepared each morning, and the Yancy Room was so comfortable! My kids loved the accessibility to snacks and beverages, and I loved the number of great books. Even all of the guests were fun to sit and chat with!! I would absolutely return!!!
3.8 on September 04, 2013
The Claremont House is as charming (and breathtaking) as it appears. Our hosts were very helpful and friendly and very knowledgeable about the area. We lucked out and got a room at the last minute - all the other rooms were booked. We will definitely return to Rome and Claremont! Almost hard to believe the craftsmanship that went into building this stunning Victorian mansion.
3.4 on July 19, 2013
We stayed one night and had a great experience. The room was large and well decorated, everything was clean. Breakfast was good - they will accommodate for gluten and other allergies which is a nice touch - although not cooked to order (eggs sat in dish for a while, I was glad we ate earlier than some other guests). The B and B is very close to historic/downtown Rome - about a 5 min drive. Overall it was a wonderful stay and I would definitely go back!

A friend and I stayed at the Claremont House for a weekend so that we could go to Paradise Garden and Finster Fest in Summerville, GA. Chris and Holly were stupendous--they gave us all the info we needed about the area and spent a lot of time talking to us. The house is beautiful and our rooms were comfortable. There's one exception to that, which is that the toilet in one of our rooms was enclosed in a space so small I literally could not fit in it. I switched rooms with my (smaller) friend, and she made do. Other than that one thing, we had a fun and interesting weekend. Pro tip: one of the chickens will, in fact, let you pet her.
3.4 on June 24, 2013
We enjoyed our stay at the Claremont ....a beautiful Victorian Treasure. Breakfast was the best we have ever had at any B&B. Would stay again . The house has beautiful woodwork not seen in other B&B's Worth the trip....a Must See in my book.. You will experience Southern Hospitality at its best! Great job Chris and Holly.
5 on June 04, 2013
When I pulled in the driveway, I went back into time! It was if I stepped into the 1880s'. The house... it took my breath away. Everything was beautiful and historic. I learned so much about the history of that house and Rome, Georgia itself. I will return! Thank you Chris and Holly for your hospitality!! Louise Lawler

Comfortable, restful, friendly, and just plain nice!

The rooms were all very big, bright, and clean. The interior woodwork in the house I have never seen in any other Bed and Breakfast. The bed was extemely comfortable. The grounds were beautiful. The house was so interesting it felt like you stepped back in time and I wanted to explore all the different rooms.. A great place to have a wedding or social function.
3.2 on May 02, 2013
Beautiful architecture! A special place to behold. Needs some care but those issues do not dominate the pleasure. Victoria was a delight to meet and capable employee in the absence of the innkeepers. Easy drive from the interstate.

girls trip! we wanted to experience a bed and breakfast. We had a one night stay and were very very pleased with everything. The host and hostess were most hospitable. we had arried late and were given ideas for dinner downtown. The beds were very comfortable and the breakfast next morning was great. very interesting breakfast conversation about our 2:30 wake up of footsteps and knocks. love a good ghost story!!! Don't pass this beautiful bed and breakfast up. very fun.

Stayed at the Claremont as I traveled in this area for business
4.6 on February 15, 2013
This was my first stay at a Bed & Breakfast so I did not know what to expect. I am a frequent traveler and I usualy pick a Hotel, but this was a special ocassion. I was visiting my girlfriend in Rome, Ga and I wanted to stay in a place that was not just anotherbkand hotel chain. Going all in I also orderd the premium room upgrade and gentlemen its worth it trust me. It came with a bottle of wine 12 roses and chocolate covered strawberries. The service was amazing, there was complementry snacks and the bed was also fantastic. Breakfast was great. I can honestly say that I have never felt more welcome and at home than here, while on vacation. I felt like I was staying at a friends house. Needless to say this place set a very high bar for any other Bed & Breakfast I will stay at in the future.
4.4 on January 15, 2013
My wire and I travel in and out of Atlanta several times a year. We decided on the last trip to stay in Rome Georgia and truely enjoyed our stay. Even though we arrived later than planned, the inn keepers made us feel welcomed. We loved staying in this historic B&B which had all the modern convienences but held on to the orld worl charm. We definately will be staying again.

My friend and I attended a wedding in Rome, GA are were looking for a fun, quaint place to stay. We stayed in the Cottage which is a house next to the Inn. It was roomy and cozy with all the amenities needed including a kitchen, living room and two bedrooms. The breakfast was fabulous and the owners sat with us and told us stories about the history of the Claremont House and about themselves. I love staying in places with history, character and charm. To the owners: thank you for your hospitality and for your enthusiasm in caring for the house.

I grew up in Rome and always loved this house but got the opportunity to see the inside. When I had the chance to stay, I was delighted. The home is of the most incredible craftsmanship; the innkeepers are kind and gracious and knowledgable of the history of the home. The food was delicious and plentiful. I had the most miraculous stay. I loved the Elizabeth room. I will stay there whenever I need a place to sleep in Rome. And two of my neices have decided that when they marry it will be at the Claremont House. You must stay there to understand and you will be delighted!

The house is beautiful but the bathrooms show water leak damage around the windows, floors, walls. I was a bit uncomfortable initially upon arrival due to the surrounding neighborhood.
5 on June 28, 2012
The home is magnificent and is well preserved for the Victorian Age. The decor features items the symbolize that era.from wood moldings to unique carpeting. But best of all Holly & Chris make you feel like visiting friends. One of our finest experience in a Bed & Breakfast.. Also Rome GA has everything from Market St to every chain restaurant.
5 on June 19, 2012
My husband and I stayed at the Claremont House for our third time this past weekend. The house itself is stunning. Our room was very spacious, and I loved having the addition of a daybed in our room. We stayed in the Yancey Room. The room was gorgeous. The bed is on the high side, but that's no problem because there is a step stool provided that matches the elegant Victorian bed. I love having the dressing area and the bathroom is very well lit, which is great for putting on makeup. I also love the big claw-foot tub in the bathroom. This house will transport you back in time, yet provides you with modern amenities. The innkeepers, Chris and Holly, are incredible hosts. They do everything they can to make your stay comfortable. They even helped me plan a special birthday surprise for my husband. The breakfasts are always amazing and very filling. You always have a variety of fruits, some sort of meat, in addition to a main entree. The fresh stuffed French toast is among my favorite. For people like us who prefer hot tea rather than coffee, they offer a nice selection of teas. The location of the Claremont House makes it easy to get to just about any part of Rome. It is also in a great location to go to Cedartown, Rockmart, and Cave Spring. Overall, this is the best bed and breakfast we have ever stayed in. There was not one thing we were disappointed with or unhappy about, except the fact we had to come back home. I highly recommend the Claremont House as a place to stay. It's much better and more comfortable than any hotel could ever be.
5 on June 15, 2012
Very nice. I was in Rome for one night and prefer to not stay in hotels. I sleep much better in a real house. :) The room was beautiful. Bed was so comfy and the area was quiet. Perfect temperature. All was great. I checked in around 8:00pm, had a little snack from the snack table outside the room. Relaxed for the evening with a good book and had to leave for a breakfast meeting at 8. The next morning, the breakfast smelled wonderful, but since I had a breakfast meeting I simply took a cup of coffee to go. I would stay again. thanks. Very friendly and the room was more than I anticipated. (I had to rate the dining or the webpage would not let me move on.....the coffee was great! and the dining room was set up beautifully. Since everything else was so good I am sure the food would have been as well. Sorry I don't have more input on that.).

Any time I visit Rome, GA I stay at the Clairmont House. I can't say enough so I will leave it at that.

Our host, Christopher, was very friendly and helpful as well as being able to share a wealth of knowledge about this particular area of Georgia.

I was wanting to have a romantic evening with my girlfriend and the cottage at the claremont house was wonderful.The dinner was absolutly perfect but the service of the staff was superb.It was the fill of an expense getaway but with a small price tag.Highly recommend to anyone looking for a great stay for any occassion.
3.4 on February 14, 2012
We enjoyed our stay in the Yancey room. The house is fantastic - great architecture inside and out. Our room was comfortable and roomy. The only downside to our stay was that our room was quite cold (I do realize those high ceilings make it a bear to heat on cold Janury nights :)). Chris was a wonderful host - allowing us to check in early and gave us great advice on local restaurants and directions. We enjoyed our breakfast. We would definitely return.
3.6 on February 11, 2012

Having never experienced a Bed & Breakfast stay before, I had no idea what to expect. All I have to say is....WOW! I don't think I'll ever be able to stay at a regular hotel/motel again. Chris was a fantastic host and we will definitely be back again!

This B&B is absolutely gorgeous architecturally and is situated on a beautiful large lot near the historical area of Rome, GA. It has unbelievably large oak trees all around and is like stepping back in time. Even though it was rainy when we were there, the atmosphere was heavenly. Would love to go back in good weather. Chris was a great host.
5 on October 12, 2011
Love Chris & Holly's warmth and charm. This was my third stay at the Claremont House and I never think about staying elsewhere. The Claremont is dog friendly and my children(dogs) Gracie & Cooper loved their homey surroundings. Look forward to next visit!

We stayed in the Yancy room for two nights. We loved the room, but since we had 4 people and a poodle, it would have been a little small if we had planned to spend much time in our room. They have a large living room that is very comfortable. Chris and Holli were wonderful. We plan to stay here when we visit our son in college.
5 on July 11, 2011
The Claremont House B&B greatly exceeded our expectations. We enjoyed it so much, that we booked our return trip through Rome GA just to stay at the Claremont House. The owner was polite and sincere. He made us feel like we were at home. We have stayed at several B&Bs in the past and never experience the welcome we received.

My husband & I were married here 7 years ago, so it was a treat to return with our 2 & 4 year olds! This time, we stayed in the cottage and it felt just like a little home where we could have bedtime snacks in the kitchen and relax in the living room after the kids were in bed. The grounds were in full bloom and we enjoyed smelling all of the flowers and exploring the big house! Thanks Chris & Holly! We'll be back SOON!
5 on March 22, 2011
Every aspect of this B&B was outstanding. The innkeepers were very personable and accommodating to any request we had. Spacious, clean rooms with a very comfortable common porch where people could relax. Breakfasts were exceptional! The price was more than reasonable for our two-night stay. We will definitely visit again.
4.2 on February 26, 2011
The house is beautiful. We even wandered into the other rooms to get pictures. It was charming. The breakfast was WONDERFUL and I host was such a delight to talk with. The 3 cats that wander the perimeter protecting the grounds were so friendly! Only 2 complaints: 1) the bed was not comfortable --- a bit too firm for my taste; and 2) we didn't get to bring friends with us to enjoy the trip! We will certainly try this again.

Chris was very inviting but not over bearing. He made us feel right at home from the second we arrived. His breakfast was amazing! The bed in the Claremont Room was extremely comfortable. I would recommend this stay for anyone.

My husband and I were the only two guests the two nights we stayed. Chris and Holly were excellent hosts, providing warmth, hospitality, and an excellent breakfast. The house is amazing, with built in Eastlake touches. Highly recommend!

What an amazing place! The owners have done their best to keep the house authentic, and took time to share its fascinating story with us. The huge front porch, impressive staircase, beautifully decorated dining area, and unique rooms make this a wonderful place to visit. The location is great, too-- close to Rome's downtown, but in a quiet neighborhood. We loved it!

It was a pleasure to stay at such a historically preserved home. It is well done.

We made our reservation at the Claremont House online -- extremely easy. On arrival we were greeted and given a tour of the house. Our room was exactly as described -- quite comfortable and well-appointed. We stayed two days. Breakfasts on both days were right on time and exceptionally good. Overall, this was an outstanding stay in a historic Victorian B&B. It is conveniently located close to downtown Rome but just far enough away so that we didn't feel like we were staying downtown. Our stay at the Claremont House added a nice touch to a wonderful weekend.

This is a gorgeous B&B whose owners are committed to preserving it and keeping it authentic. The hosts went out of their way to answer our questions about the history of the home and its renovation. It has a wonderful front porch, surprisingly big bathrooms, beautiful decor, and impressive architectural style. It's located close to the historic downtown area and is a quick drive from Berry College. Delicious and creative breakfast, peaceful atmosphere, friendly guests... a great retreat!

Home is beautiful, food delicious. Could have used newer towels in the bath, and there was lots of dust under the dresser and bed. Other than that it was a delightful stay and I would go there again.

The Claremont house is truly a gem. The wood work inside the house is fantastic. This is the most romantic house I have ever visited. The landscaping is pretty mundane and the porches had a few too many cobwebs.

Excellent for those wanting peace, quiet and a sense of being in your own home in a romantic setting while enjoying Southern hospitality.

Our hosts, Chris and Holly, were extremely gracious and helpful. At my wife's request, they were able to place flowers and a six pack of a great microbrew in the room before our arrival as a birthday surprise. They were also knowledgeable about local dining and attractions. Our room was spacious and comfortable, and along with the common areas of the Inn were full of beautiful period architectural detail. The food was delicious, and the hosts are very flexible with serving times. This stay was an outstanding experience, and my wife and I plan to stay here again on our next visit to Rome.

Looking for the perfect location for a family get away? Planning a wedding? College graduation? The Claremont will exceed all your expectations. Our son and his bride met while attending Berry College and they wedded at Frost Chapel. My husband and I live in Pennsylvania and the groom’s siblings were coming from New York, Ohio and South Carolina. We wanted the family together for the weekend and we accomplished that at the Claremont. We ‘took over ‘ the Inn for a long weekend; arriving on Thursday and departing Monday. I would recommend this arrangement to anyone seeking family time together. Our oldest daughter, her husband and our new grandbaby utilized the larger Elizabeth Room; our youngest daughter felt like a princess in the Claremont Room; there was plenty of space for the Groom and his brother the Best Man in the Yancey Room and we enjoyed the lovely Magnolia Room complete with a sky light in the large bathroom (all bedrooms have private bathrooms). The Inn has two large dining rooms, parlor, elegant main foyer as well as two large porches which we fully utilized. We brought a badminton set and Ladder Ball with us and set them up on the front lawn. The lit tree lanterns in the side yard were charming and added to the ambiance. The Inn Keepers, Chris and Holly were excellent hosts. Holly’s mother help with food preparations and the food was delicious; especially her peach cobbler! We hosted the Rehearsal Dinner at the Inn and it was a memorable event thanks to all the help and attention to detail from the staff . Every morning we feasted on a gourmet breakfast cooked to order. We really enjoyed having the opportunity to sit down to a family meal and share our time together as we had over the years of raising our children. The Claremont served as our ‘Home away from Home’ and we thank Chris and Holly for their hospitality.

I have been to two weddings here, and each was really lovely, the first was a large wedding party, witht the wedding in front of the house and a dance floor on the side yard, bar on the back poarch and a really elegant buffet for the reception in the house, which was nice because there were plenty of places to stop and talk to friends and family members. The food was really good, made on site, the cake was made there too, and I didn't try the groom's cake, but the bride's cake was the best I've ever had. This last Wedding we went to was here also, we booked the cottage at the Claremont House, it's right behind it, so that we could be there the whole weekend and that was great. The weather was uncooperative, April! But this was a more intimate wedding anyway, it was in the front parlor, (about 50 people-seated) with appetizers and a served dinner reception, set in the dining room. It was nice, and other family members had rented rooms in the house, so it felt like a great family reunion and it ws a lovely wedding. A nice thing too, is the pictures all look great because of the interesting house details, if you were looking for a place to get married in north georgia or a destination wedding, this would be a great place to have it. We are coming back here in the fall, as we like to play tennis and ride bikes- and our son is enrolling in Berry College and so this is conveniant to all of that. Thanks!
