  • Steve and Trish are great hosts and the room is great - truly bed and breakfast style. They even provided coffee, orange juice, milk, cereal, and yogurt. The room is pretty private and the yard is beautiful. It's a great neighborhood with nice historic homes and easy walk to all the restaurants, bars, etc.

  • I stayed here two weeks ago - then immediately booked my next stay. What incredibly thoughtful, fun, delightful people, a beautiful place to stay, in a gorgeous neighborhood. No better way to get to know Raleigh.

  • What a lovely stay we had at Steve and Trish's! We enjoyed the beautiful garden in the back with a
    private entrance to our cozy guest room, the relaxing sounds of rain at night, a luxurious claw-foot tub, comfy bed, and delicious breakfast of cereal, yogurt, juice and fresh-brewed coffee! Not to mention our hosts were so friendly and helpful. A must if you ever go to Raleigh!

  • Wow, this place rocks, and so do Steve and Trish! Wish I had discovered it sooner on previous trips to Raleigh. Definitely going back and hoping to bring my hubby along for a long weekend sometime. The room is quiet, peaceful, restful, and welcoming, with great touches. The garden is the loveliest space, and the neighborhood is cool. Downtown is within walking distance as are all the government buildings, if you happen to be here on government business, which I was. Steve and Trish are the perfect hosts.

  • I could not have asked for more welcoming (and fun!) hosts, in a beautiful home and garden, smack in the middle of the most adorable and convenient neighborhood in Raleigh! The room was lovely, super clean, and with all kinds of added touches, like the fruit bowl, milk and cereal, juice, coffee, and tea. I took my tea out back to the quiet and peaceful garden and read the news while listening to the birds. Such a great location too - walkable to bars, restaurants, and downtown.

  • Steve and Trish were absolutely wonderful hosts! They were incredibly welcoming. Cookies garden suite is perfect for anyone looking to be within walking distance to downtown Raleigh while still having peace and quiet. The suite has all the amenities one could ask for. We highly recommend it.

  • We were in town visiting our daughter at NCSU, and decided to try something other than hotels. This was a lovely room off the back garden at Steve and Trish's home, and it was offered at very reasonable rates. My wife and I didn't think we'd have much time to enjoy the beautiful garden area, but we were able to sit a spell one evening, and both Steve and Trish joined us for a wonderful chat about their place and their gorgeous neighborhood. Such friendly people! Hearing we were partial to craft beer, Trish came back out with a tray of a couple left over craft beer from a recent party they hosted, and stemmed glassware for my wife and I to share. What a nice touch! My wife and I then walked the neighborhood up to The Station for a late dinner and craft beer before returning on a different route to see more homes lit up. I wish we could have had more time walking this wonderful Oakwood neighborhood, and enjoying the garden right outside Cookie's Suite. Steve and Trish, it was wonderful to meet you and be able to get to know more about you, your home, and your neighborhood. Thanks so much for sharing!

  • Steve and Trish were great hosts! They were so accommodating even though we contacted them last minute. They had tons of advice and suggestions for things to do. The place is perfect and the neighborhood is beautiful. We only wish we could stay longer- we hope to visit again.
