Upon arriving we were greeted warmly by Francois who showed us the amenities of the inn and the properties. He also let us know about the farmer's market in nearby Saxapahaw the Saturday evening we were visiting as well as The Eddy, a pub in Saxapahaw that serves local food and has a great selection of local beers. Francois also pointed out the various activities available on the property of the inn itself, including a pétangque court (similar to bocce), walking trails in the woods, a nice pergola with comfortable chairs, and a very comfortable hammock.
We stayed in the 1801 room. It was fabulous. Solid floors, tasteful furniture, a comfortable rocking chair, and a fireplace that we didn't get to use because it was summer. The bathroom is also very well done, and looks like it has been recently renovated. The bed was unbelievably comfortable.
The Inn is located about 10 miles west of Chapel Hill in a rural area. It feels like it could be hours away, enhancing the feeling of getting away from it all for a while (we live in nearby Durham).
For breakfast, we were treated to several delightful courses starting with yogurt and fresh fruit, followed by banana bread, and then a main course of eggs with chives and bacon. Coffee and orange juice were also included. The dining room is stately.
To top it all off, we were sent on our way with a bag of fresh chocolate chip cookies.
