Lovely house in a wooded area, next to a farm with horses. Although it is a 20-minute drive to Durham, the commute was easy and smooth. A car is absolutely necessary! The house was clean, with all the required amenities and comforts. Although we never met our hosts, they kept in touch with us via email throughout our short stay. They very graciously left food in the fridge, a bottle of wine, lots of snacks and even carrots to feed the horses. Wonderful experience - we will definitely stay here again if we visit Durham in the future.
From the very beginning, Connie was delightful to communicate with. She was thorough and made sure our arrival was easy and convenient. There was a quiche prepared with instructions on how to heat as well as other snacks, water and a bottle of wine. The cottage was very clean and comfortable. The phrase that comes to mind is "loving hands at home". My daughter and I have a wonderful visit and definitely enjoyed a home like feeling. You could tell that Connie and Fleming had put in a mountain of love and attention to this lovely home in Durham. We didn't have time to explore the grounds or feed the horses, but are planning to return with more time to spend in this lovely oasis. My daughter kept telling me, "nice job dad, this is the best".
Connie and Fleming were the most generous hosts. We felt so welcome and at home in the Eno Cottage. The place is so adorable with all the amenities we needed. My daughter loves horses so to have them in the backyard was dreamy for her. The kids rode the bikes, we played the yard games, we explored the Durham area. The Museum of Life & Science is very close and a perfect spot to go with the kids. The trail by the river down the road was lovely. Thank you to the Lyons!
This place is great! It is both quiet and serene while still being 15 minutes away from shopping and restaurants. The cottage is charming and we felt right at home....I typically judge hotels and b and b's on how well I sleep and these beds are SO comfy! Connie left us snacks upon arrival and carrots to feed the horses, which we loved! Will definitely be back!
I came to Eno Cottage during Spring Break as a writer's retreat, working on my dissertation. I could not have asked for a more perfect location! The house is absolutely adorable, cozy with all the right modern conveniences (fast internet, cable, washing machine, dishwasher). I was able to take daily walks around the scenic horse farm, meet the horses (!), read on back porch, and set up a dedicated writer's space on the desk provided. Connie And Fleming were wonderful hosts, providing a delicious breakfast casserole and horse treats (carrots) for me when I arrived. I drove down from NYC, an 8-hour trek, and I loved Eno Cottage so much that I am already talking to friends about visiting again. An added bonus: Duke University Library is only a 15-minute drive away.
We had a great five day stay at the Eno Cottage. It was the perfect space for our family of four. My two sons loved their rooms, roaming around the farm, and feeding the horses. Connie and Fleming were very welcoming and friendly. Connie made special time to allow my kids to brush, ride, and feed peppermints to horse Kassy. Although away from downtown, we found the location easy to travel back and forth to friends' houses in Durham and sites around Duke and Raleigh. The kitchen is well equipped and I made several dinners there. We will stay there again when we visit Durham.
We stayed in Eno Cottage during one of the coldest winters possible! It was toasty warm and completely lovely.
Connie and Fleming couldn't have been more wonderful as hosts: we were made to feel welcome before we even arrived with emails and updates and advice to bring warm clothes! !!
I really don't have a criticism to make. The cottage was immaculately clean, incredibly homely and welcoming and I want to live there full time.
The horses were sweet, although we didn't get to spend a lot of time outside with the cold. The beds were super comfy, the kitchen was well stocked with pots and pans and everything you could want to bake and cook (so we did).
Look: to sum up: some vacations don't turn out the way the pictures look. But some do. This was one of those. I felt like I lived in the North Carolina country in a beautiful cottage and had no stress left in my life. Just book it, you'll adore it. It was worth every single penny and then some.
Our second visit to Eno Cottage. This feels like a home away from home. We will plan our visits to Durham around the availability of Eno Cottage. I highly recommend!
Wow what an awesome place this was! Some girlfriends and I were meeting in Durham for a fun, quiet get together last weekend and I couldn't have picked a better place to be! As soon we we get there we are welcomed with wine and snacks in the kitchen, carrots to feed the horses and not to mention an adorably decorated house. It was so comfortable and cute it felt like we were staying at a friends house. The coffee provided, the cozy blankets scattered around and the all the games made for a perfect weekend. I plan on staying there again and highly recommend this place.
Our experience at Eno Cottage was absolutely perfect. We were 5 Duke grads, visiting Durham to celebrate with our friend who lives in Durham and is 8 months pregnant. We hosted a very small baby shower brunch at the house very comfortably. Connie was very welcoming and responsive. She even took some time to chat with us and show us the horses on the property. The house was adorable and so comfortable. We honestly could not have asked for a better experience and I really hope that we get a chance to come back and stay at Eno!
We enjoyed having Connie as our guest in the cottage. We would love to have her back anytime.
