This private, romantic guest suite is located minutes from downtown Durham amidst two acres of wooded property overlooking a pond. Filled with cozy details like a majestic canopy bed, fresh coffee and snacks, and all the comfy blankets you could want. Enjoy the beauty of nature, complete privacy, and easy access to all the delights of Durham: downtown dining, attractions, Duke University, and more - all of which are just a 7-10 minute drive away.

The space
The suite is attached to our home with two private entrances and no shared access - you'll truly have the place to yourself. Self-check in with the lockbox anytime after 3pm.

Our property is entirely fenced in with a gate you'll pull through before driving up to the house. Parking is next to the entrance and up several steps. You can enjoy coffee or a book outside under your private porch under the rose trellis.

The small-but-mighty private bathroom is located off the foyer and comes with complimentary toiletries. Note that this is the only sink in the unit - you can find cleaning supplies and dishwashing liquid for washing up underneath.

The kitchenette comes with a mini-fridge (no freezer), coffee maker, electric kettle, and microwave, plus dishes and silverware for you to use. Note that there's no stove, oven, or separate sink. Think hotel room vs. full-kitchen setup. Help yourself to any snacks, creamer, coffee, and tea.

A handicap accessible ramp is also available around the corner and enters into the bedroom. The unit has its own HVAC which hums along periodically, as does the mini-fridge.

We have two dogs (Pierre, an Aussie and Virginia Woof, a German shepherd), a pigeon, and a cat - you may see us walking the dogs on leash or hear the occasional yip or two, though the room is effectively silent when the door to the foyer is closed.

Our pigeon's home is across the way from the bedroom porch - you may occasionally hear her soft cooing. There's a sound machine in the bedroom just in case you'd like to listen to ocean waves (and more!).

Where you’ll be

Durham, North Carolina, United States

Our neighborhood is a quiet, residential spot just outside of downtown Durham with quick accessibility to I-85. Hop in the car and head up North towards Fall's Lake (5mins) or the Eno River State Park (10 mins) if you'd like to stroll in nature or drive a quick 7 minutes to downtown Durham and local haunts like Cocoa Cinnamon for coffee (a straight shot from our home), Motorco Music Hall for shows and casual food and beer, Geer St. Gardens & The Pit for delicious food. Of course, the rest of Durham is just around the corner, too.

My husband David and I love connecting with new people from all walks of life, sharing our favorite local spots, and creating cozy spaces. I enjoy listening to music while cooking adventurous recipes while you can often find David working on art projects in his studio, rock climbing, or playing with one of our many creature companions.
