• An all around, well-crafted experience. The food was excellent, that host and staff were accommodating, and the b&b was extremely nice. Went to Rocky Mount for a concert but the two night stay at the b&b was just as great as the concert. We were given room to work while there and the internet was extremely fast. The staff regularly, in a non-annoying way, checked in to make sure we were comfortable and satisfied.

  • The Inn is beautifully renovated, keeping its integrity and originality but adding convenience of modern day living. It is tastefully decorated with luxurious bedrooms and bathrooms. (Landscaping, vegetable and herb garden will be added this year). Breakfast was sumptuous. Our adult children were very impressed with our accommodation.
    Although we added an hour to our trip by veering off to Rocky Mount Virginia instead if Rocky Mount, NC, we were all happy to spend the night at this beautiful inn. My husband and I plan to return in the Fall for the town’s craft show and music at the concert hall.

  • If you are looking to step back in time while still enjoying today’s modern amenities, then the Early Inn at the Grove is the place for you.  Nestled in the heart of Downtown Rocky Mount, Virginia, this pre-civil war home is magnificent with its original paned glass windows, beautiful crown molding, high ceilings and overall grand style architecture.  We stayed in the Magnolia Room with its cornet windows and elegant decorations.  The private bathroom was extremely large with a soaking tub and a double shower.  Keri is a most pleasant and welcoming innkeeper.  We look forward to visiting there again.

    The inn was so inviting, beautiful and unique. The Kirsch family is very impressed and appreciative and we found the innkeeper warm and charming.
    We say thank you for making us all feel special and welcome!

  • On a recent visit to Rocky Mount and the Early Inn, we were taken aback with the hospitality of Keri and the people of Rocky Mount. The atmosphere at the Early Inn was warm, welcoming, and relaxing. The grounds are peaceful. The place has real historical character. The rooms were well furnished and comfortable.  We highly recommend the Early Inn, and have put it on our list of places to return to.
