The space

Built in 1906 by prominent NC architect, TBCreel, our cozy home is a haven for travelers. We host musicians weekly for our concert series, so you never know who might be in the house with you ! Our friendly terrier is sweet and watchful.

Guest access

Great porch with ping pong table, kitchen, several seating areas indoors and out for relaxing.

Interaction with guests

Depends on my schedule. Coffee, fresh ground, assuredly. Most Sundays, we host a music series called the Rooster's Wife.

The neighborhood

Easy two blocks to quaint downtown. Library, post office, bank, grocery, feed store , used tack shop, and a wonderful music venue, Poplar Knight Spot.

Getting around

Nice walking, jogging, but you will need a car, or bike to get out of town.

Other things to note

The house is not airconditioned, but fans and steady breezes make your stay very comfortable.

Older house. Very eclectic. Janet was a great host. She even got up at 6 am to make me coffee. Quiet neighbourhood.

I did not have the pleasure of meeting Janet but she always responded to any questions or messages I sent. We had a pleasant stay at her home and enjoyed relaxing on the porch. I loved the bohemian feel of the home and plethora of books lying around (even added a few to my "To Read" list. The location was great and felt that it gave us easy access to Pinehurst-Southern Pines-Aberdeen area. Most things outside this area we visited was an easy 30-minute drive.

My very first Air BnB experience! I loved all the character Janet's place had. It is walking distance from restaurants and a brewery. Was in a very quiet neighborhood so we slept well. Thank you.

Janet is a lovely host and her house has a wonderfully homey feel to it. She's there to help with directions and suggestions and our breakfast and coffee in the morning was one of our favorite parts of the trip!

I had a wonderful time staying with Janet in her beautiful home as I waited to move into my new house. She was very welcoming--offering me breakfast and coffee every morning and answering any questions I had about the surrounding area. She was happy to help with everything and it really felt like a home away from home. I would definitely stay again.

The host canceled this reservation the day before arrival. This is an automated posting.

Hope to meet you for a stay in our family home. We've raised four children here in the Sandhills. Love music, our dogs and traveling.
Coffee on the porch is a great start to our day . We'll introduce you to the area with plenty of tips for a good stay.
