Stay at infamous Hotel Nicaragua, our historic home said to be a stop On The Road from Jack Kerouac's noteworthy book about the beat generation. Spacious house has large front porch and delightful back screened porch overlooking tiny fish pond and landscaped backyard. Within walking distance of downtown, NC State University, Pullen Park and Glenwood South Nightlife. Set in tree lined historic Boylan Heights. Central to everything with easy access to I-40 and Amtrak.
The Convention Center, Red Hat Amphitheater, Marriott, Sheraton, Glenwood South and Warehouse District are within walking distance. There is easy on street parking at our location. Lots of museums and entertainment right nearby in addition to NCSU, Shaw U., Wm. Peace U. and St. Augustine's.
This bedroom is on the first floor with adjoining bathroom.
What a wonderful experience. Elizabeth and Dan were gracious and friendly hosts and have a beautiful home in the historic neighborhood of Boylan Heights - all within easy striking distance of downtown Raleigh. I had a spacious, well-appointed, and crisply clean room and was served an amazing breakfast before my departure complemented by Elizabeth's homemade strawberry jam. My only regret is how short my trip was - I wish I had a little more time to soak it all in.
We had a fabulous time at Elizabeth and Dan's Hotel Nicaragua! Such a beautiful home -- very comfortable and inviting. Elizabeth made us a wonderful breakfast, and we so enjoyed talking with her. Raleigh was much more fun than we'd even expected. Elizabeth showed us a great, short way to walk to Poole's Diner, which was scrumptious and different. Definitely worth a stop at this Airbnb in Raleigh. You are guaranteed to enjoy!
We enjoyed every minute of our stay with Elizabeth and Dan at the Hotel Nicaragua. This was our first experience with airbnb, and we have truly been spoiled. Can't imaging any other location or hosts who could top this. We were served a delicious breakfast each day and quickly felt this beautiful place was our home away from home. Elizabeth and Dan shared their knowledge of their city and gave suggestions for excellent restaurants, many within walking distance. Raleigh is a great city to visit with lots of farm-to-table food, fun people, free museums, and much more. We'll be back soon and plan to stay again with Elizabeth and Dan!
Once again we had a wonderful time staying with Dan & Elizabeth at Hotel Nicaragua. They are most gracious hosts very familiar with restaurants & activities in the Raleigh area - a real resource. We will certainly stay with them again. Their house is beautiful and the breakfasts were delicious .
Elizabeth and Dan's home is just gorgeous. The architecture and decor are lovely in a prime walking location to downtown Raleigh. The bedroom and bathroom are spotless and stocked with beautiful fresh towels and linens. Elizabeth made us a delicious breakfast of eggs, grits and sausage (and it was HER birthday!) and pancakes from scratch on Sunday. Elizabeth is very knowledgable about the area and gave us lots of great information and suggestions. We would stay here again for sure! Oh, and the value, you can't beat it! Thanks so much for your warm hospitality Dan and Elizabeth!
My son and his girlfriend were at Elizabeth and Dan' place for a week, they loved it, the house, the room, so clean, nice and comfy, and specially their host. They really feel like being with their family, Elizabeth and Dan have taken very good care of them, they were helpfull and kind, my son won't forget the breakfast, so delicious , and how they were so welcommed. We highly recommend the place and the people!!
Elizabeth and Dan provided a wonderful space for me while I worked for a week in Raleigh. Their house is close to downtown and I enjoyed waking early and going for walks in the peaceful, historic neighborhood. They're extremely gracious and friendly, and I hope to stay there again.
Our goal was to spend the night in Boylan Heights to help us get a better sense of the neighborhood, and we were not disappointed. Elizabeth and Dan were very kind, and what a lovely breakfast was awaiting us in the morning!
My stay at the Hotel Nicaragua with hosts Elizabeth and Dan Dunbar was good. Their hospitality was great. The accommodation was comfortable and pleasant. They have done a great job restoring an old home in a neighborhood near downtown Raleigh.
