Our son has moved away to college and has given us his permission (lol) to rent out his room so that he can help offset his college expenses. What a hoot!

Thank you so much for having me in your beautiful home. You made me feel so welcome. The room was wonderful, the bed comfy, and the location perfect for my visit...any one will be pleased to stay with you. (And just I case *you* are there when Lilla decides to bake, you are in for a treat.) What a nice place to stay! Thank you Lilla and John.
I had a wonderful stay with Lilla and John. I felt completely at home with them. Lilla definitely outdid herself every morning with breakfast. I wish I could eat like that everyday. I would recommend them to anyone.
Lilla and John were most gracious and accommodating. I especially enjoyed sumptuous breakfasts and the beautiful area and pond that borders their home. Everything I required to have a comfortable stay was thoughtfully provided before I even asked. The home was immaculate, the conversations lively, the food delicious and though they were friendly, I had privacy when I wanted it. Seeing the swans on the pond and riding the paddleboat were especially fun, and as an animal lover I enjoyed their two well-behaved dogs. I would definitely choose them again.
Lilla & John are wonderful hosts (As well as Crash and Sonic; the two kid friendly dogs). We arrived as guests, but left as family. Not only did they accommodated my family for our stay, but provided directions to local spots, provided equipment for our trip to the beach, and had more than enough entertainment for my 3 year old niece and 8 year old nephew. Breakfast for our 5 day stay was a great way to start the day, and everything from the home to the Neighborhood Park was terrific. We simply had a wonderful time, and look forward to continue our friendship with Lilla and John.
Lilla and her home were very inviting. She more than exceeded our expectations with her hospitality. My kids loved the convenience of the playground and the tennis courts and wanted to stay longer. I had my coffee on the back deck (peaceful space) in the morning overlooking the pond, which had 4 beautiful swan. We were made to feel like family here. We absolutely loved their dog Crash. Don't know when we'll be back through Raleigh again but we certainly know we'll be staying here. We'll be sure to extend our stay next time.
Great host. Great house. Welcomed with opened arms and fresh baked cookies! Really enjoyed my stay. Thanks.
Lilla and John were outstanding. I can't recommend them highly enough. They were considerate and went out of their way to make sure my stay was excellent. If you're near Raleigh you should absolutely stay with them.
Well what can I say, the second room "Gray" room will not disappoint. With large desk, big fluffy pillows and a warm blanket. As always the room is very clean & decorated beautifully! Even thou the rooms are in front my widow open at night the sounds of birds in the morning, crisp dew is refreshing and peaceful. Juice, coffee, fruit and waffles in the morning with a walk around the pond. Both Emma (my basset) & I will truly miss Lilla, John, Sonic & Crash. If you are passing through or coming to this area - This is the place to stay!
Only that both Emma & I will miss Lilla, John, Sonic & Crash
If only they would adopt me! Both Lilla & John are the nicest people I have ever met in a long time. Lilla is funny, warm, open. Their home sits in a beautiful subdivision overlooking a big pond. Once you step inside, you have a warm feeling like you are coming to visit family. The Safari room is clean with big pillows & warm blankets. The bathroom is spotless with clean fresh towels. First night Lilla made me dinner which was wonderful. Wait that is not all! Breakfast is a feast of waffles, grits, bacon, eggs, coffee & juice. Honestly you will not be disappointed there are not enough stars to rate them. Oh lets not forget Sonic & Crash both loving sweet dogs. My dog felt right at home! For me personally, I am overwhelmed and truly met life long friends. Thank you both so very much!
Lilla was a great host-and I didn't even stay there! I had a friend traveling through the area, and was in a tight spot economically. I decided I would treat her to a night at Lilla's and very last minute, Lilla agreed to help my friend (and her dog) out. She took her in and I was able to book and pay from my end with no trouble. We really appreciated how kind she was. My friend gave her 5-stars and said Lilla was very welcoming and kind.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
