Private Bedroom in a Cute House

House - Private room · West Edgewood Drive, Durham, NC 27704, United States

The Space

You can have a private bedroom in a cute 2-bedroom house with a fabulous back deck. My house is in the friendly, welcoming Northgate Park neighborhood, about 2.5 miles from downtown Durham, and about 4.5 miles from Duke University and Duke University Hospital. There is a nice city park a few blocks away, and a paved jogging path too. It is very easy to bike anywhere in central Durham, and a great bike shop (Durham Cycles) rents bikes at a reasonable rate. There is also a bus line 2 blocks from the house. The house has Wifi internet, laundry, and a big back yard. You have the choice of a full-sized mattress bed or a queen-sized air bed, and you'll have a desk and chair in your room. My cat, Scout, would like to be your best friend. You are welcome to use most anything in and around the house, and I just ask that you treat everything with respect.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Gretchen was a wonderful host. She was flexible about my coming-and-going's and was easy-going and friendly. Her home is very comfortable and inviting. She lives in a quiet neighborhood with easy access to the highways and downtown Durham. Her cat is wonderfully cute and friendly. I would recommend her and her home to friends, for sure.

  • My stay here was very pleasant. Gretchen was very accommodating and hospitable. The house is in a quieter part of the town and I woke up every morning to the tweeting of birds.

  • Gretchen was so nice, and I felt very at home at her place. She was very helpful with helping me decide good places to go and things to do in Durham. Her place was a very close walk to downtown, and a decent walk from Duke campus as well. If I were visiting again, I would absolutely stay at her place!

  • The house is very conveniently located, walking distance from Duke's east campus, and very close to downtown Durham. The house was also spotlessly clean, and in a quiet neighborhood. Gretchen was great - very nice and helpful, with great tips about where to go and what to do in Durham. I highly recommend her place!

  • With quick communication and super-helpful tips, Gretchen is lovely! Her cute and quiet spot is an easy 15-min drive from RDU and conveniently located less than 3 miles from Duke University's West Campus. Great room for a stay or two or three. :)

  • It was a pleasure to stay at Gretchen's. She kindly loaned me a bike to get around town, and offered good advice on Durham. My stay was comfortable, and I enjoyed Gretchen's company.

  • My husband and I stayed at Gretchen's while in Durham visiting Duke University. Gretchen was so sweet, she left packs of M&Ms on our bed and brought us cookies from a local bakery. She was very welcoming and full of great advice about where to go in Durham and insight into how the community is growing. Her place was only a few miles from Duke, so very conveniently located for our needs.

  • Such a great stay. Cute house. Perfect distance to all things downtown Durham. Clean. Room is private, and the desk was especially appreciated. Scout the Cat is awesome. Gretchen is super sweet and accommodating. Will definitely stay with her again when I'm in Durham.
