Dan and Thelma were great hosts.
Their place is clean and comfortable. They were very welcoming with Thelma even cooking us a fresh batch of muffins for breakfast. Dan was very happy to tell us places to go around town and how to get there, even offering us a glass of wine.. Above and beyond.
OMG, What fabulous hosts!!!! They thought of everything. Clean, friendly and comfortable. I couldn't recommend them any higher.
Dear Dan and Thelma,
Thank you very much for your hospitality. We had a very nice stay with you all. You are awesome host and provided a delicious breakfast! We are in New York City now, and hope to see you all on our next trip north. This was our first trip using abb and it was a nice experience.
Happy New Year!
Dan and Thelma were wonderful hosts, and we are so grateful that they opened up their home to us during the holiday season for our trip. Thank you so much, and Happy New Year! :)
We had a Great Time at Dan & thelma's. Dan was so helpful with everything and we Enjoyed Talking to him. Wish we had the Chance to meet thelma too. Lovely Place and only 5 mins Ride to downtown. We'd come here again! Thank you!!
Dan and Thelma were delightful hosts! As I was exhibiting at a conference, I left early every day -- and Thelma would have a great breakfast ready for me. Great coffee, home baked bread and muffins, waffles, fruit -- as a Vegan breakfast person - this was great. She even purchased Almond Milk for me.
The room was comfortable and I slept like a baby!
Highly recommend for families and couples.
I had a very enjoyable stay with Dan and Thelma. They were very gracious hosts; my wife and I had a great time staying there.
Dan and Thelma's home is delightful. They give you both privacy and personal attention. Breakfast with them is one of the highlights of our visit. The food is plentiful, delicious and beautifully presented. I too a photo of the sunroom set for breakfast, hoping to post here, but alas, there is not a method to do that. They are most helpful with places to see in the area. We will return when in Raleigh again.
Dan and Thelma were wonderful hosts! They were very helpful, and even had directions waiting for me. The bedroom was very comfortable, and there was even a home-cooked breakfast in the morning (which I did not expect). I will definitely be staying here again!
Dan and Thelma are wonderful hosts with a comfortable home. Knowing my boyfriend and I were looking to move to the area, they provided maps, guide books, written suggestions, and even the number for a realtor.
Everything was as described, but Thelma's cooking deserves more prestige than written in the description! She made a great breakfast both mornings and even gave us a late night snack.
Dan and Thelma are kind and honest people, and we would certainly stay with them again.
