TripAdvisor Traveler Rating

Based on 21 reviews

High curved ceilings, heart-pine wainscotting, raised wood panels, nine original mantels, doors (put together with pegs) with original hardware, and all-original Southern pine flooring will delight the historical buff. Antiques of the period are abundantly distributed throughout. The yard is fully enclosed with custom front fencing and gate. Mature floral gardens and flowering trees highlight the landscaping. The backyard is suitable for private events. There are four primary guestrooms, each with its own private bath. Each has its own distinctive character and is highlighted by antiques of the period. For the convenience of our guests we are open year-round, including major holidays, except for occasional short vacations during slower periods.

From Chapel Hill, take the 15-501 Bypass around Durham to the I-85 North and follow the directions below.

From I-85

Southbound (from Virginia): Take Exit 177 ("Avondale and Roxboro Sts./Downtown") and follow signs to Roxboro St. South. This will take you to the left, under the interstate, heading toward town on Roxboro Street.

Northbound: Take Exit 177 ("Avondale and Roxboro Sts."), turn right off exit onto Roxboro St.

After a few blocks on Roxboro Street the road shunts right onto Mangum St. Stay on Mangum St. and note the Visitors Bureau on the corner at the fourth light. Turn left at the next light onto Chapel Hill St., go to the next light in front of the library on Roxboro St., turn left and immediately right at the light onto Holloway St.
We are a block and a half from this point, just after the church on the left. Look for our custom white fence and gravel driveway. Sarah, our sweet, tethered German Shepherd, will likely greet you upon arrival.
