About this listing

This is a 10' x 10' bedroom that contains a single bed, window, desk, a bookcase, mirror and a clothes rack/closet. There is a shared bathroom that is also used by several long term guests, but w/ 5-10' showers, it has not been an issue.

The space

Room is clean and tidy w/ ceiling fan, central a/c & hardwood floors and part of a 2400 sq' single family home located in quiet neighborhood, on D and CL bus line, and within easy access to U.NC and Duke U., Whole Foods, East gate shopping ctr and University mall. Share bath and kitchen. Continental breakfast available.

We live simply and value environmental sensitivity--reduce, reuse,& recycle everything possible, thermostat is set at 78 degrees in summer and around 68 degrees in winter--supported by a wonderful wood burning stove centrally located which means it is usu. closer to 76-80 degrees w/ bedrooms being cooler, There is a washer available for 1 load/wk, but request ALL clothes be washed w/ cold water and air dry whenever possible--have well constructed cable wash line available, and encourage 5-10 min. showers. Having said all of that, we do want you to "make yourself at home" and let us know whether we need to tweak anything.

Guest access

Kitchen with some cabinet and refrigerator space.

Interaction with guests

Enjoy interaction, but I also need peace and quiet evenings to finish computer work and free reading. I am comfortable with silence when sharing living room space in front of the fire evenings.

Other things to note

I provide breakfast tems for short term guests--those here for wk or less, but anticipate long term guests provide their own breakfast due to reduced rates.

Ruth is the best! So kind and welcoming! Several long-term visitor were at the house when I stayed here, and everyone made me feel right at home! The house is tidy and comfortably appointed with lots of wood and light-colored fabrics.

This was my first experience with airbnb and i think i got lucky to find ruth. I had a great stay at her place. She is very welcoming and it felt staying at home. The house is very clean and the location is just amazing with market place at walking distance. Ruth is a great host and makes sure that you get all you need. I appreciate her effort in preservation of natural resources and limit wastage as much as possible. I had to extend my stay by one day and she accepted that without any hassles. I will definitely recommend this place for those coming to chapel hill. I also look forward staying at her place in future. Thanks Ruth for giving me such a wonderful experience.

Great room in a great house with great people. Nice room, comfy bed, good location! The desk was also of a very nice size, great for getting some work done. I was sorry we didn't get to chat more, I'd love to stay again if/when I'm back in the area.

Ruth was amazing. So generous, kind, and welcoming. What a relief to soak up some southern hospitality after a long stint abroad. Highly recommend :)

Ruth User ProfileRuth is a superhost.

I enjoy providing gentle hospitality to stranger and friend alike--we live simply without pretense, but you you are welcome to come and stay for awhile. I value honesty and integrity. I enjoy traveling and am very venturesome--love to try new foods and appreciate meeting people from other cultures. I do speak a German dialect and a little Spanish --Learning is exciting and ongoing... I am very sensitive to ecological concerns and try to minimize my carbon footprint in the beautiful earth we live in; consequently, I request careful use of energy and water (request 5-7min. showers). And, best of all--I now am operating on wind powered electricity via Arcadia!!! Very happy about that!!
