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!

Lilla and family are first rate! They made me feel completely at home in a time when I needed a "home". The space was incredible, well appointed and very comfortable.
And the waffles - I'm just saying if you have a choice, opt for the waffles! ;)
Now if only to spend some time there when John would be making some gumbo - I'll have to book my reservations for that!
Lilla, John, and Bishop were great to meet. And Crash! (the dog). Lilla was super conscientious and it was a great stay. It's a beautiful house, with good energy, and great people. I was the only one staying there and so had the bathroom to myself which was great. They made me an awesome breakfast the first morning! Lilla was dog-sitting some dogs while I was there so I got to visit with many canine friends--it was awesome, all were quiet and super friendly. Was able to park in the driveway and didn't have any problems; great neighborhood.
We had a wonderful wonderful stay at Lilla and John's! I rarely use the phrase "it felt like home" just because it's such an overtly used phrase, but that was exactly our experience at Duhon's household. Lilla is very warm-spirited and full of energy! We very much enjoyed chatting with her as well as with John. Room is extremely clean and neat, all beddings smell like fresh linen. On top of that, breakfast was freshly made and abundant! We greatly recommend y'all to stay at Lilla and John's !
Perfection is no easy word tu use, but I had the privillege to be John and Lilla Duhon's guest.
Upon their front entrance door, you can read: "Enter as a guest and leave us as Friend". It is true .
God is in the details, so Lilla too.
She decorated her house and their rooms with great taste and a lot of little details that make the difference.
Towels folded in origami, fresh flowers in the bathroom...
On my arrival, I had problem to rent my car so they came and pick me up at the airport. John helped me to rent my car the day after.
The house is front of a pond with swans, birds singing as only noice.
A "must" to discover if you attend to stay at Raleigh.
I love you both !!! Thank you
Lilla and her husband were patiently waited for us for our arrival at around 10:00 pm. I and my husband loved their home, we took the USA room it was cozy, comfy, homey and clean...we passed out on our bed that night, we had a good night sleep! We woke up with birds tweets--so sweet-- and got up rejuvenated. Breakfast was perfect-vegetable omelet, waffles, fruits, coffee, yoghurt, fruit juice were served fresh. The dining area has a great view of the lake which made our morning even better. We also had a chance to see the other 2 rooms; Safari room is beautiful so as the Gray room. The decors are tasteful...I love it! We had a pleasant stay, and I am so glad that my picky husband had a wonderful stay. Lilla's place is highly recommended, I give her and her home A+ So what are you waiting for? Book now!
This was my first BnB experience and both Mr. and Mrs. Duhon were excellent hosts. They made us feel welcomed in their home. The house was beautifully decorated just like the pictures have shown. They went out of their way to extend themselves to us. Our check in process was stress free and made personalized. Ms. Lilla went above and beyond by recommending a restaurant giving us alternative directions due to road closures and called in our reservations. I would recommend anyone traveling to Raleigh or the surrounding area to stay here.
Airbnb is for me! Everything about it is a yes! People, price, and place all friendly to my traveling heart - like a home away from home. Lilla Von and John are gracious and giving hosts - made me feel at home and like one of their family. The price was right, the food was delicious, the home and lake, with swan stories and warm hospitality was amazing! When in Raleigh I know where to stay. Thank you in so many ways for all you are and provide. Lilla Von and John you are a treasure for any traveler. Thank you!
Fabulous! Ten out of ten! Lilla Von and John were the best hosts ever! When you first walk in the house there is a saying over the door, "Enter as strangers, leave as friends." We definitely felt we left as friends. We enjoyed the hospitality of Lilla Von for a whole week! And I left feeling so spoiled. Breakfast was a feast! Homemade waffles, eggs, potatoes, bacon, juice, tea, coffee, fresh fruit. I stayed full for hours! And being a foodie, I have no complaints. Everything was delicious. We were also greeted by Crash, who made me want a dog as cool as him. The bed was so comfortable, only the promise of breakfast got me out of it. The neighborhood was quiet and beautiful. The view from the kitchen is breathtaking. I would definitely recommend you book your stay here. The accommodations, service, and attention you receive as guests of Lilla Von are a steal! Book now, you won't regret it!
My hosts were wonderful from the first text to ask about my breakfast tastes to the fresh fruit and veggie smoothie made for me in a take away cup I could carry to work. Lilla is a bundle of energy who clearly loves hosting and, most important to me, her space is immaculate, but still comfortable. They were kind enough to wait up late for me, then promptly showed me to my room where I had a peaceful rest in a quiet neighborhood not far from the city. Thank you!
I enjoyed meeting Lilla Von and John (also Crash and Sonic, two awesome dogs). They have a beautiful home which is located by the pond (beautiful view of the pond, swans, and garden). I enjoyed the dessert treats, breakfasts, and dinners. I stayed at the USA room with is equipped with elliptical trainer, workout bench, and TV. The room was spacious and has a view of the side of the home and the back garden and pond. Lilla shared several restaurant recommendations and things to do around Raleigh. I felt really comfortable during my stay here. I will definitely come back.
