Clayton's 1910 Mill house has been in our family for almost 100 years. We took all our experience with Airbnb and totally updated it, combining the best of the new while keeping the atmosphere of days gone by.

Relax on the front porch rockers overlooking the small lake or enjoy the sun setting on the deck where it is not unusual to see deer in the evenings.

On the inside we have updated every room. Enjoy your favorite movie on the 70 inch TVs located in the living room and bedroom.

The space
Clayton's house was built by The Virginia Mills Company in 1910. The mill burned down but some of the houses remain. This one has been in our family for almost 100 years.

In 2021/2022 we took our experience with Airbnb to create an experience that we hope you will love. Everything is totally renovated yet we kept the atmosphere of a 1910 house. Several pieces of furniture are original to the house, such as the pie safe.

Whether you are coming to the area to relax or work you will find this house an excellent choice.

The living room features two leather couches, a gas fireplace, a 70 inch smart TV, games, Alexa, and Alexa-enabled lights to create a variety of settings and moods.

The bedroom has a king-size memory foam mattress, room darkening shades, a 70 inch TV, charging plugs for your phones and tablets, Alexa to play your favorite music, and Alexa-enabled lights. We even have two beds for your pets should you need them.

The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need to cook including oven, microwave, and air fryer along with locally sourced coffee and many spices.

The bathroom was completely remodeled and features a rain shower.

The second bedroom is small but features two bunk beds and a Jeffersonian era desk and a mailbox lamp, which was chosen because Clayton has mailbox 1 when Swepsonville had a post office.

Outside the property sits on one acre. The front porch overlooks the small lake and on weekends local bands usually play at the Swepsonville Market which is across the lake. When playing you can sit on the porch and listen to the music or walk across the lake and hear the band firsthand.

On the back deck, you can relax with the firepit during the evenings or grill your favorite food. The backyard is fenced in if you plan to bring your dog.

Even though you may feel like you are away from everything, grocery stores and restaurants are just 10 minutes away and you won't be far from larger cities: Greensboro - 25 minutes, Burlington 15 minutes, Mebane 10 minutes, Durham and Chapel Hill 30 minutes.
