Hi! I’m Starr ~ Our family lives in Charlotte, NC and is in the process of building a boutique conference and retreat center, the Old Haigler Inn. We opened our first Airbnb as an experiment (I mean, would anyone REALLY want to come stay at our cottage?!??) in late January 2020. Unexpectedly, we had our first stay the very first weekend that we listed and I had to rush and buy linens right before the guests checked in!! Yes. They DO want to stay in our cottage ;) Since then, we’ve been crazy enough to open 2 additional Airbnb properties during the pandemic, with 3 more in the works to open soon! We’ve absolutely loved jumping into the world of hospitality and bringing our dreams to life through opening our homes to others in hopes they can find the rest and relaxation we’ve craved ourselves in getaways over the years. It’s been a wild adventure learning the ins and outs of what our guests are looking for and expecting when they visit our spaces. Our team is constantly evaluating our processes and working to improve as we go. We aim to provide a place where you can get away from the busyness of life and relax in the peaceful escapes we’ve carefully crafted with the guest experience top of mind. We want you to love every minute of your time with us and always dream of coming back! In our spare time, we renovate and flip houses - that’s our background for the past 16 years and what led us to renovating homes that have unexpectedly become our Airbnbs. I’ve been married to Brian for almost 17 years and we have 3 kids that we’re training daily to become Superhosts. Come visit us soon - you’re welcome here! Find us on social. Our offerings include: Carriker Cottage The Lodge The Rooney Residence at Stevens Mill Coming soon: Hayes House The Stables at Old Haigler Burk Bungalow
