Frequently Asked Questions
I’ve never stayed at a B&B before and I’m not sure what to expect.
A B&B is a different lodging type from a hotel or an AirBnB and is more of an experience! When you stay at a B&B such as the HS Clay House, you can expect to interact with other guests as well as the Innkeeper. There are often amenities not found in a traditional hotel, such as breakfast, beverages and snacks. Breakfast is served on vintage china with cloth napkins for a luxurious touch. The HS Clay House is located in an 1885 Queen Anne Victorian House that has been updated with modern amenities but still has much of its’ historic charm. Kelly, the HS Clay Innkeeper, can help curate your stay by recommending things to do and see in the area.
Why stay at a B&B as opposed to an AirBnb?
At an AirBnB, typically you are given a code to let yourself in and often you do not interact with the owner or other guests. Most AirBnB locations do not provide breakfast or other snacks.
How many bathrooms does the HS Clay House have and are they private?
The HS Clay House Bed and Breakfast has 6 full and one half bath. Two of the rooms also have ensuite baths – meaning you do not have to leave the room to utilize them. The other baths are assigned to specific rooms so that everyone has a private bathroom. For the baths that are not ensuite, you have to leave the room to access them.
Can you accommodate dietary preferences at breakfast?
Yes, dietary preferences can be accommodated. As an Innkeeper, there is nothing more rewarding than serving a breakfast that guests enjoy.
What other amenities do you provide?
The HS Clay house has many shared spaces for guests to enjoy, such as the outside deck, fire pit, and gardens.

What is the history of the HS Clay House?

Can I rent the entire house for an event?
