The peaceful and comfortable Rural Retreat in Enfield is just a few minutes off Interstate 95 and waiting for your arrival. Maybe you are looking for a rest from a long drive between New York or Boston and Florida, visiting family and friends in the area, escaping the city, hiking the trails at Medoc Mountain, or enjoying dinner plans at the Hen and the Hog; whatever brings you to our area, the Rural Retreat in Enfield is the perfect place to stay.

The space
Nestled in the small town of Enfield, The Rural Retreat was extensively renovated in early 2020. NC-Preservation approved contractors made conscious and strategic choices in keeping with trends, availability, and materials during this time period. This mid-century modern home is perfect for those looking for a comfy stay in a peaceful setting.

This spacious suite has two bedrooms, one full bath, and accommodates four guests. There's plenty of room in the family room to rest and watch TV or maybe you'd like to sit on the porch while you relax. The kitchen is equipped with refrigerator, electric stove, microwave oven, and dishwasher along with basic dishes, cookware, and flatware; perfect for preparing a quiet meal or enjoying take out. Should you need to wash up a few or a lot of clothes, there are laundry facilities in the suite as well as free WiFi internet access and smart TVs. The Retreat is tastefully decorated to reflect the history of this quiet rural town, which was founded in 1740.

Whether you're in Enfield for a night, a weekend, or longer, we hope you will have the chance to unplug, relax, and enjoy the charm of the area

Where you’ll be

Enfield, North Carolina, United States

Enfield has a rich history, dating back to the Revolutionary War. Take a walking tour and visit the Cellars, the former home of Gov. John Branch – even the Marquis de Lafayette visited The Cellars on February 28, 1825, during his grand tour of America (the home is just a block away). It is also just a 20-minute, scenic car ride along Thirteen Bridges Road to Sylvan Heights Bird Park, which has the largest collection of exotic and rare waterfowl in the world. Make sure to visit the bird park’s Parakeet Exhibit where you can feed hundreds of colorful birds as they eat from your hand. Want more exercise? Kayak on Fishing Creek or the town is just 20 minutes from Medoc Mountain State Park, with its 10 miles of hiking trails. The town was also once the largest raw peanut market in the world. We still cultivate fields and fields of peanuts, but you can actually sample some of these beauties at Aunt Ruby’s Peanuts in downtown Enfield – and buy a few cans to take home to your friends and family. Tired of driving? Go to a yoga class in downtown Enfield and stretch out at Yoga Magnolia. Looking for a great gift for your mother-in-law? Visit Southern Secrets for unique, one-of-a-kind gifts hand-crafted by local artisans/artists.

I was born and raised in Enfield, a charming, rural community in Eastern North Carolina. My husband and I still call Enfield home. And even though our son is serving in the US Navy, he calls Enfield home as well. We are excited for you to join us for as long you can.
