We do have a Golden Retriever named Lady who'll want to play with you but she can remain completely separated from The Little Nest if you're not a dog person. Sorry, but because we have a number of regular guests who have pet allergies, we Do Not Allow Pets in The Little Nest. However because we love dogs and have had a lot of requests to bring small dogs To The Little Nest, we created another adorable Airbnb a few doors away where small, quiet, well behaved dogs are welcome. It is in an apartment home we own and manage a few doors from our home here in Historic Oakwood in Downtown Raleigh. It is called "Sally's Suite," ane we do allow small, sweet, well behaved with our prior knowledge and permission.
Our goal is for you to feel cozy like in a Bed and Breakfast, but anonymous like in a hotel. We'll be around to help you and would love to meet you if you need us, but we want you to feel like you have you own space so we won't bug you.
We live up front here in the Pullen Starks House. There is Kay walking down the sidewalk. Where's Waldo?:)
