The space

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!

You couldn't hope for a better host than Lilla. She made us feel extremely welcome into her home and was so pleasant to speak to. I would recommend her to anyone staying in the Raleigh area!!

This is the first time that I have stayed at a bed and breakfast. What a wonderful experience. I will be using B&B's more often and I will definitely be returning to Lilla's on future travels. Lilla and John are the greatest Hosts that travelers could hope for. I was able to try out some of the new dishes that Lilla served up and made sure I didn't miss any of her meals and snacks. She makes a wonderful omelet! The decor that surrounds one's visit is very calming. Love the wrap around deck especially in the mornings with a cup of coffee and a magnificent view of the pond and wildlife. Located in an upscale neighborhood, close to shopping yet quiet and serene. Everyone you see has a smiling face. And they have the most intelligent well behaved Jack Russell who is named Crash. For those who may have doubts about a bed and breakfast for privacy, well there is no need to worry. Your privacy is foremost with the Duhon's. The guest rooms are beautifully designed and tastefully furnished. Desks, comfortable chairs, my room had a beautiful white leather couch to relax on. Small reminder that John Duhon is the Sunday morning chef and rocks the kitchen. In the evenings you may enjoy your wine in private or in the company of John and Lilla discussing whatever you experienced on your day of adventures. This is a jewel not to be missed on your travels.

Lilla was awesome! Her home is beautiful and the rooms are extremely nice! I had reserved a smaller room and she put me in the larger room so I would be comfortable. I had a bathroom all to myself. The whole place was so clean and the bed was SOOO soft and comfortable. The first night, she even drove me to the market to get some food and she let me store items in the fridge. Five Stars!

Lilla and John were fantastic. I would not hesitate to stay with them againg when traveling to Raleigh. I stayed in the Gray room witch was warm and comfy. Lilla had dinner ready when I arrived, she is a great cook. Breakfast was yummy too. I was offered space in the friedge if wanted to buy my own food or I could cook what they had on hand. Overall I could not have picked a better host for my first time using airbnb.

Staying with Lilla Von and John was a pure delight! Flexible check in, just a quick text and she was ready for my arrival. She was very accommodating when I needed things and was always generous with food! I didn't get a chance to try her breakfasts since I started my days at 5am, but the other food she offered was delicious! She was really helpful with helping me navigate through the area, and she even upgraded my room for free! the USA room was spacious and clean. The bed was SO COMFY, I easily fell asleep. Crash the doggie is a sweetie and loves being petted! Beautiful backyard, excellent food, and wonderful company. I will only stay with her whenever I return to Raleigh!
