The apartment is located on the same property as my home on almost two acres of trees. However, the apartment is very private and secluded with its own driveway, private patio area and separate parking. We have an herb garden that you may utilize. And during the summer a vegetable garden that we're very inclined to share, especially when there is a bumper crop. Fresh eggs from our happy hens are also available
We are located 5 miles outside the Raleigh city limits, 10 miles from downtown Raleigh , 10 miles from NCSU and 20 miles to the airport. We are south of Raleigh about 7 miles from I-40/440. Only 15 minutes from the attractions of downtown Raleigh (Duke Energy Center, Convention Center, Raleigh Memorial Auditorium, Raleigh Civic Center, Red Hat Amphitheater). Many local sports teams, such as Carolina Hurricanes, Durham Bulls, Carolina Mudcats, aren't too far away. Eagle Ridge Golf Course is across the street from our neighborhood.
Within three miles, there are three different shopping areas with groceries, coffee shops, department stores. We are happy to provide maps and suggestions for leisure activities.
No Smoking. If you are a smoker, I will be happy to show you where on the property you can smoke and will even provide you an ashtray!
For stays longer than a week the utilities (electric and propane) are not included in the price. You only pay for your actual usage. The meters are read when you move in and when you move out and calculated immediately. The apartment is energy efficient.
We had the most wonderful stay at Cathryn's place! Everything was just as described....SO easily accessible to downtown, yet quiet, peaceful, and all the comforts of home. She was so easy to get in touch with, and we really enjoyed sitting and chatting with her and her husband. Would definitely stay here again!!
Wonderful hostess. Warm welcome. Very helpful. House was beautiful, spacious, lovely surroundings. Every thing we could desire was there.
Nous étions les premiers français, nous pensons qu'il y en aura d'autres car la maison et l'accueil étaient exceptionnels.
Pleasant stay with a pleasant host. Unit is as pictured, would stay again.
We had great time; it's quiet and peaceful. Cathryn and Paul were attentive to our needs.
Cathryn kindly left us breakfast goodies and fresh eggs from her chickens. The suite is very spacious and offers plenty of room. It is more of a mother-in-law suite and it is attached to their main house, not a seperate home, so not as much seclusion as a single home would offer. There are chickens and a rooster, so if you are a light sleeper, the rooster will wake you up rather early. She kindly let my dogs stay with us, so that was great. The washer and dryer were a great accomodation. Driveway is kind of hard to find, so rcommend calling when you are a few mins out. House could have been cleaner, it was relatively clean, but not great.
About the Host, Cathryn
I love having the apartment. It's like owning a bed and breakfast, only I don't serve breakfast and it's much more than a bed. :) I get excited when we have new guests, it's wonderful to meet new people...however, we respect the fact that our guests have their own lives and need for privacy, as do we.
