About this listing
The little house is truly a small and complete house - there's a charming living room complete with packed bookcase, a very workable kitchen with fridge, electric stove, dishwasher, microwave and toaster oven, a comfortable bedroom with a double bed and a television, and a spacious bathroom with walk-in shower.
The house is connected to our bigger house by a covered breezeway but has its own entrance and access by walkways directly from the driveway where you are welcome to park.
Interaction with Guests
We will be here during a guest's stay here and will be delighted to share information about "the southern part of heaven," as Chapel Hill is known. However, the little house is separate and completely private, and guests are free to come and go on their own schedules.
It's a quiet and friendly neighborhood in Chapel Hill with easy access to downtown and to the University of North Carolina. Lovely place to walk in the evening.
Just a couple of blocks' walk takes you to Culbreth Road where you can pick up the D Bus [always a free ride in Chapel HIll!] that will take you to downtown Chapel Hill and to the University of North Carolina. We're also close to all major roads and interstates in the area and close to area shopping by car.
Other Things to Note
We do have one pet, a cat - but, of course, he will not be staying at the Little House! However, they have stayed there with our children in years gone by so if you're seriously allergic to cats, you may want to choose another place in Chapel Hill.
We do have a Pack and Play should you want to bring an infant - we would welcome little ones!
We ask that guests not smoke in the Little House.
About the Host, Carolyn
Carolyn Karpinos - retired attorney married to Ralph Karpinos who is also an attorney here in Chapel Hill. We have children and grandsons in Nashville, Tennessee and Brooklyn, New York. I am an avid photographer, enjoy cooking, and love to read. My husband is a runner and swimmer and bakes the best bread in town! We have travelled extensively in this country and are doing some international travel these days as well. I lived in Accra, Ghana for a few months and have also spent some time in Haiti as a volunteer. Chapel Hill and Carrboro are wonderful small towns - very cosmopolitan and somewhat funky - but still rooted in their southern heritage in that the pace of life is not too hurried and people are friendly. We welcome guests to this area and like being hosts!
