Wedding Weekend

4.4 on September 10, 2017

Our stay was lovely. We were in Rome for a wedding and decided to stay at the Claremont. The room was very comfortable. We had a lovely stay and it was fun to meet the other guests.


Beautiful Old Bed & Breakfast

2.6 on July 09, 2017

The B&B is beautiful and is located in a pretty neighborhood. The Inn Keeper is very nice. I was disappointed with the temperature of my room, the amount of dust on furniture, and a small pile of potato chips left on the floor in my room. The food was very good but we were limited to 1 roll each.


A beautiful hidden gem

This is an absolutely gorgeous property. I spent my entire stay walking around the house and taking in all of the amazing antiques and history. I loved that they included little cards with information about the house. Our room was gorgeous, cool, and restful. I will definitely visit again.


Third stay and still Charmed!

4.8 on October 27, 2016

This is my third visit to Claremont House and I am still enchanted by this charming house and grounds! This time we stayed a week at the cottage which is separate from the mansion. Breakfasts were scrumptious as usual and I spent many evenings relaxing on the porch, back patio, or garden. Chris and Holly are lovely hosts and in walking through the mansion I always see or learn something new. Fantastic place!

Gorgeous home. I read some reviews where people were complaining about the lack of update. I think it has character and charm and was beautiful! Such a fun little getaway!


Claremont House met expectations

3.0 on September 29, 2016

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.


Less than 12 hrs

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.

Do yourself a favor...

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.
