About the Host, Judy
We've been residents of Chapel Hill since 1994 and love to share the many things we love about both the town and the area with you. The owners are avid outdoors-folks and can guide you to the trails, bike and running clubs, and parks. We are also involved in the arts including the many cultural activities on the nearby UNC campus. And a favorite activity is a short walk from our house on Mt. Bolus Bike Path to Cafe Driade which is adjacent to the trail. We have traveled all over the world and have brought many ideas from our travels into the studio to ensure your comfort and happiness. Come see us soon!
