Dan and Thelma were very sweet. The bedroom was small, but the bed was comfy. It would have been nice if there had been a TV other than the one for the family downstairs, but they did offer to let us watch TV downstairs. I felt like I was intruding in their "space" a little. They were very friendly. The room and bath were very clean which is important to me. j
Dan and Thelma were terrific! Their house is in a very nice, quiet and safe neighborhood, as well as extremely convenient to my work. I stayed with them for four nights, and my room was very clean as was the bathroom. I would definitely stay there again, and hope to in the future!
Dan and Thelma went above and beyond to be accommodating hosts. They were wonderful in helping me transition my move into Raleigh. They completely opened their home up to me and made every comfort of their home available. They are both super super nice people. Great neighborhood and beautiful home. Also Thelma's breakfast is top notch.
We stayed there for one month enjoying our summer break in Raleigh. We really enjoyed the wonderful time with family. The place is very cozy and clean. The breakfast was always a good surprise at morning. Thelma's cakes and pancakes are delicious. Dan and Thema are great hosts and make you feel at home and comfortable. They were always open to help and also offering helpful guidance about the area. Thank you, our friends Dan, Thelma and Rachel, for the wonderful time you provide us. We fell blessed for that. We have no words to describe how grateful we are. You are awesome!!!
We had also a chance to meet Sheri, another lovely guest that stayed there for a week while we were there. Sheri, we also thank you for the great time together.
Dan and Thelma were very gracious and sought to make us feel at home. The room was nicely decorated and although we shared the bathroom with another guest, Dan had no problem with getting up early to clean it if we were using it after the other guest. The home was welcoming and clean. They offered us wine when we returned from our dinner in the city and one of us sat with Dan, Thelma and their daughter and watched TV. Breakfast was ready for us the next morning in a lovely setting with fresh fruit, scrambled eggs, juice and fresh baked muffins. It was quiet and they offered us free rein of the house and they gave us a key to come and go as we pleased. And their dog, Snowy, was a sweetheart. Not a traditional BnB but very welcoming.

About the Host, Dan And Thelma
We will be celebrating our 22nd anniversary this August! Our daughter will be starting her junior year at Notre Dame this Fall and we miss her a lot when she is away. Our dog, Snowy (Bichon Frise), helps to entertain us and lets us take him on several daily walks. We are active in our local church, teaching Sunday School and other volunteer activities in the community.
When we travel we like to stay at bed and breakfasts. We enjoy meeting people from other cultures and countries, especially the Philippines where Thelma grew up. We try to go often to visit family and tour. In our travels we also have been to Germany, Italy, Austria, and Hawaii.
