Having been in bed and breakfasts in Cape Cod MA, NY, and the eastern coast of North Carolina, as a repeat experience here, I found this place to be a charming and wonderful experience. I stayed in the Merlot which was very roomy - with a whirlpool(soothing), an electric fireplace(very toasty), balcony (sat with my laptop overlooking the front - not enough flowers in bloom due to rain but relaxing), bed was lush, room impeccably clean... The owner was very accomodating, friendly and gracious. He gave a detailed walkthrough; answered questions; his personal history is fascinating - pilot, engineering, been all over the world (worldly, take the time to ask and talk with him), and met my requests - ie. asked for more water bottles, replaced an alarm clock, etc. \r
I had a short drive to the heart of Chapel Hill and Carrboro, and able to experience the relaxing atmosphere away from all the crowd and noise - both worlds are there! enjoyed breakfast and having options to choose from!!
Pros: Roomy rooms, fun whirlpools, friendly host, balcony views
Cons: not enough flowers in bloom due to rain
