The Space

This is our Beautifully restored and decorated 1930's era apartment at Historic Gray Court Apartments in the West End Historic District in Downtown Winston Salem, NC.

The apartments are unique and charming homes that offer exciting city views. Select apartments feature the original ornate light fixtures. Original doors, trim, brass handles, and locks remain in the apartment. The bathroom features well preserved original period tile work, an ornate two piece commode and a unique porcelain pedestal sink. Glass paned cabinets divide the kitchens from the dining areas. Arched doorways and carved phone niches adorn the apartment’s foyers. The apartment’s entry includes the original louvered outer door which provides for privacy while allowing cool summer breezes to circulate through the dwelling. Each oak stairway maintains its original finish & newel post carvings.

The apartment has a full equipped kitchen.

The living room and dining area overlook the courtyard and the bedroom has a city view.

The Apartment is located on West Broad St. between 4th and 5th, and they're only a 3 block walk to the Winston-Salem Dash baseball stadium and they are only a block from the great shops, restaurants and boutiques of West End Historic District.

The Apartment is also a short walk to 4th street where you'll find Foothills Brewery and the numerous other great restaurants, clubs and shops as well as The North Carolina School of the Arts Stephens Center for Performing Arts.

Check In
  • This was my third summer trip down to Winston Salem and the first time staying at Eddie&Kay's. Eddie, Kay, and Phil were very polite and easy to work with. It was much better than staying in a hotel room and I look forward to using this next year! The apartment was clean, tastefully decorated, and bigger than I expected. I loved the historic charm. . It was the perfect location to walk anywhere in WS. The apt is fully stocked with spices, water, and basic condiments. Don't forget to check out the amazing BBQ joint on the corner of the apartment!

  • The Gray Court Apartment was very clean, attractively furnished, and equipped with a firm, comfortable bed. There is an assigned parking place right behind the building. It is also conveniently located to downtown restaurants. The only drawback for us was that the building is on a busy street. The traffic died down at night and didn't bother me. My wife bought earplugs, took a sleeping pill and actually slept very well! We enjoyed our stay and highly recommend this to folks visiting Winston-Salem. Thanks Eddie and Kay!

    Response from Eddie And Kay:

    Thanks John and Jane. FYI, we are moving the Gray Court model/Airbnb to a 2 bedroom unit in the middle building which is further off the street. This should help with the street noise a lot.

  • This was perfect for our visit to W-S! Super easy communication and check-in. Stayed there with my husband and 2 year old (she slept in a pack-n-play which fit perfectly in the bedroom.) It was great to be able to put her to nap/bed and still have a comfortable place to stay up. Loved the location - central to so many good restaurants. Would love to come back and stay when it's a bit warmer and the temps actually get above freezing so we can explore more on foot from here!

  • The apartment was in a great location for us, walking distance to the heart of downtown Winston-Salem. There is plenty of space; we were 3 adults for 4 nights and were very comfortable. We arrived very late (midnight) and were met at that late hour and showed to the apartment.

  • Loved the apartment, it was exactly what I was looking for! Communication was quick and seamless. If you are in Winston Salem and want to stay in downtown this is a perfect choice.

  • A lovely, comfortable and clean apartment. We greatly enjoyed our stay, and enjoyed our Thanksgiving dinner there!

    Definitely able to walk downtown and enjoy delicious restaurants, also very convenient parking at the apartment.

    We would definitely return on another trip to Winston Salem.

  • I was in town for a long weekend - four of us: me, 18 month old, 6 yr old, and mom. the building is great - took me back to an apartment i had in Berkeley 20 years ago. Fold-down ironing board in the kitchen (I didn't use it.) Location great, easy parking, they even let my sister pick up the keys since we were arriving late. Everything was clean, we were happy and would definitely stay here again.

  • We stayed at Eddie and Kay's charming apt for 10 days in August: my husband and I, plus our 29 yr old daughter (on the spacious couch). The bed was very comfortable, decor was in keeping with the charm of the building, check-in was easy and both Eddie and his local rep were more than accommodating.
    Great location, within easy walking distance to downtown, as well as the charming) West End shops and restaurants just down the street; wonderful to have free parking so close to "everything."
    Would highly recommend this apt to anyone looking for spacious quarters near downtown, with gracious hosts.

  • Another enjoyable stay. Construction across the street was a bit noisy as were the upstairs neighbors, but they kindly agreed to be more quiet for future stays here. Took me a while to add my feedback, but I wanted to make sure I did, as this is a great place to stay, and so close to downtown!

We're very young at heart boomers. We love to laugh. We also love travel, good wine, good music, good conversation, good food and interesting people. We have lived in Raleigh's oldest and coolest Historic District for over 25 years and have watched, enjoyed and participated in the resurgence of Downtown Raleigh. We love sharing Raleigh's treasures with friends and guests. You'll love The Little Nest as your Downtown Raleigh get away. We've owned The William Gaskins House on the Neuse River in Downtown New Bern for over 14 years. It is right in the middle of the coolest Historic District in NC's colonial capital. It is a fun casual and very enjoyable place for your visit with family, friends or business associates. We've owned and operated Gray Court apartments with great friends Phil and Pam Neari for over 12 years, as we watched Downtown Winston Salem come back to life. By 2012, Downtown W-S had become very alive with Great Culture, Music, Art, Food, Beverages and Fun. So we decided it was past time to have a get away place there so we could enjoy the fun activities which are going on there constantly. You'll have the opportunity to enjoy all these great activities and more at our Downtown Winston Salem Getaway. You'll love the 5 minute walk to everywhere in Downtown Winston Salem from the Winston-Salem Dash baseball stadium to great restaurants, bars, galleries, shopping and more! Our philosophy as hosts is to provide "great getaways which are cozy like a bed and breakfast, but anonymous like a hotel". While we respect our guests privacy, we're more than willing to offer suggestions on fun things to enjoy and the "insider scoop" on the best of the best to see and do in our towns. We really love to get to know the real local culture from locals when we travel and enjoy offering the same opportunity to our guests. So by all means call us if you need us or would like to visit. Otherwise we'll give you your space. Live with Gratitude and Live for Today! Yesterday is History. Tomorrow is a Mystery. Today is a GIFT....... That's why they call it THE PRESENT!
