Stop and smell the roses with us. Enjoy a newly remodeled private apartment on a small, working farm in the Triangle area of North Carolina. Pet the donkeys, meet Dave the sheep, enjoy coffee by the pond with the ducks and chickens and still be near all the modern conveniences and attractions.

The space

Are you looking for a vacation or business travel spot that is close to everything but feels like you're in the country? Then this private guest suite on our 4 acre chicken and miniature donkey farm in Durham, NC is for you. You can sightsee or work all day then relax by the pond with a cool drink.

We're less than 1/2 a mile off I-40 and only 6 miles to Chapel Hill (UNC & UNC Hospital) and 9 miles to downtown Durham (Duke University, American Tobacco Campus, Durham Bulls). Only 15 minutes to RDU Airport and RTP, 20 minutes to Raleigh (NC State, Carolina Hurricanes). Very close to shopping and restaurants around Southpoint Mall as well as The American Tobacco Trail, plus we're only minutes to Jordan Lake and the Jordan Lake Gamelands.

The apartment features:
- a bedroom with queen bed, cable TV, DVD player, armoir, closet and chair;
- a dining area with dining table and seating area;
- a kitchenette with refrigerator/freezer, induction cookeye, microwave, toaster, sink, coffee maker and coffee, and basic cooking supplies;
- a full bathroom with shower and hair dryer;
- AC/heat and ceiling fans.

All sheets and towels are provided, as well as wifi Internet and we'll even have some free range eggs in your fridge.

We can not allow outside animals of any kind, sorry.

We look forward to meeting you!

Interaction with guests

We will be around during your stay and are always more than happy to show you around the farm and introduce you to the animals, or recommend place to eat or visit. Our default position, however, is to stay out of your way and let you enjoy your vacation.

Other things to note

If you are here for a special occasion and would like a bottle of champagne chilling, or a 6-pack of NC craft beer in the fridge we can probably make that happen. Just message me and we will work out the details.

This is a working farm, so use common sense.

Don't open any gates or feed any animals without asking first.

Definitely no smoking anywhere on the grounds.

There is a dog, Clarice the Great Pyrenees, who roams the farm and keeps the chickens and donkeys watched over, she may give a bark but is mostly a big, white teddybear. She is the reason for keeping the gate closed though.

Please let us know if there is anything we can do to make your stay more enjoyable. We're always happy to give you recommendations for places to see, dine and do around Durham/Chapel Hill. Check out the guidebook on the listing too.

The apartment was super easy to get in and out and the pictures are accurate in representing the place. We were out apartment hunting so we didn't get to spend as much time at the farm as we wanted but we really enjoyed the time we had to hang out with the donkeys and the chickens. If you need a change of pace and a peaceful place to rest, this is definitely the place!

Eric and Lisa are incredibly kind. The animals add so much to the stay. I would definitely go back to this location next time I head out to the Durham area.

Very Quiet and Peaceful. A much needed escape from our normal day to day. The apartment was the perfect size for my husband and I. Well stocked with the essentials. It was the perfect location for visiting Durham and Raleigh.

This place is a gem! Close to grocery, restaurants, mall, but FEELS like you're in a little bnb on a rural farm. As soon as we checked in, the chickens and ducks came to say hello, it was the cutest thing I've ever. seen. Will definitely go again.

Eric's place is an idyllic oasis of rural living next to a bustling urban area. Watching fish jumping in the pond while sitting on the deck was a relaxing way to end a day of sightseeing. The chickens (thanks for the eggs for breakfast!) are entertaining. The donkeys stole my heart. They are adorable and loved being petted. The setting was so quiet and I slept wonderfully. I definitely recommend it.

Eric User ProfileEric is a superhost.

I'm a graphic designer and hobby farmer who loves his lady, his animals, hockey, travelling, fishing, music and a nice cocktail by the pond. As a traveller I know it can be hard to find an interesting place to stay that doesn't cost a fortune. We've tried to make that happen here. We're laid back, but take good care of our house and the guest suite.
