The Henry Clay Inn
Ranked #1 of 3 Ashland B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 11 August 2017

My wife and I re-discovered this excellent inn after a multiple year gap and with the new owners this has become a true gem and is just off the interstate. We travel constantly up and down the I95 corridor for business (certainly not for pleasure) and this has become a true sanctuary from the forced road march. The Inn and rooms are immaculate, the inn keepers are outstanding, and breakfast most excellent.

The Inn has plenty of comfortable public spaces (inside and out)...our favorite is the tree shaded second deck over the front porch where we can watch the rail traffic pass just on the other side of the old train station. There is one of our favorite lunch/dinner restaurants (Iron Horse) not 100 feet away and make use of the pass the Inn can provide to the local YMCA...one of the best 'Y's we've seen (better than most health clubs).

The Henry Clay Inn will be one of our regular stops and are looking to use the Inn as an off-site location for our company....they have excellent spaces and understand clearly how to host these kind of events.

Looking forward to our next stay...

We have stayed at this lovely Bed and Breakfast several times since our daughter is a student at Randolph Macon College. Ashland is a charming Southern town with shops and restaurants. The innkeepers strive to make sure your stay is comfortable, and the included breakfast is great!

My wife and I visited the Henry Clay Inn for our anniversary. We were graciously met and escorted to a wonderfully appointed room. Staying right across the street from the Ashland train station gave us an opportunity to revisit that throwback memory for the two of us. The Inn's morning breakfast was outstanding! The whole trip was a wonderful event for us and the Henry Clay Inn was the center piece.

We thoroughly enjoyed our one night stay. The staff is superb, with kudos to John and Grace for their hospitality and attention to detail. Brenda created a most amazing breakfast that we enjoyed on the veranda. Pollyanna, our senior Labrador Retriever, was warmly welcomed and she enjoyed her stay too. Our second floor room was comfortable, recently updated, and we appreciated access to the balcony. We enjoyed walking to the Ironside Restaurant (wonderful). We will certainly be returning for another stay at the Henry Clay Inn!
