What is so special about the Blue Ridge Parkway? Imagine driving 469 miles of Southern Appalachian vistas and never having to stop. Nearly 500 miles in length with no stops, no signage and nothing commercial to distract you? It is about time you did.

The Claiborne House Bed and Breakfast is exactly the half way point on the BRP in Virginia. We are only 15 miles to MP 121 entrance/exit to the Parkway which makes day tripping delightful. As many guests discover, trying to drive the entire length of this scenic road takes a little while longer than anticipated. The speed limit on the BRP is maximum 45 mph.

The BRP links two national parks – The Shenandoah National Park in Virginia and The Great Smokey Mountains National Park in North Carolina and Tennessee.

This amazing road was built during the Great Depression when there was an overabundance of willing hands, back and biceps to build this road. It began in Sept 1935 and was built in sections that were later connected. Like most of the country in that era, the Blue Ridge region was economically depressed.

Please make sure you do not travel the BRP without this free guidebook here. We have complimentary copies for you here at The Claiborne House Bed and Breakfast. This little book is a gem, chock full of bits of information to what flora and fauna is found on the BRP in any given season, to what MP markers to look for historic sites.
