Edenton chateau / country house description

'Wait 'til you see the Blount's Mulberry Hill...so begins an entry in nationally known, best-selling author's, Inglis Fletcher's Lusty Winds for Carolina. This spot, patented as a plantation in 1669, is now eliciting similar accolades from those who stroll its expansive confines three centuries later. Mulberry Hill is situated majestically on the Albemarle Sound and is surrounded by an 18 hole golf course. The National Registry manor house has four levels with an elegant dining room and living room entered into by a grand hall, all with 12' ceilings. A common area, with a fireplace, kitchen, laundry room and office are on the first level and is perfect for dining, as well and relaxation. A terrace is just off this common area and is ideal for dining, as is the porch just above----from both vistas, guests can view the spectacular sunset meeting the Albemarle Sound. An FAA approved airport (Northeastern Regional Airport) is located within a mile and a half from the property. Also nearby are the Outer Banks and Norfolk, just an hour and fifteen minutes. The owners are willing to line up tours, sail boating cruises, flight lessons, fishing trips and golfing packages, if requested. They are both known for their Southern hospitality!

                                It was a real treat to stay in a lovely home built in the 1700's full of antiques set in spacious rooms that over look the sound. After a great breakfast, one can play golf, visit historic Edenton, or just enjoy a leisurely day on this wonderful eastern North Carolina property. It is a chance to see the way it was.

                                The Mulberry Hill experience is one that is SURE to charm. The hosts are warm, engaging and very knowledgeable about the area. Their love for the surrounding history and dedication to the preservation of this historic, family home is evident and each guest is welcomed just as early Carolina visitors were given hospitality in the 18th century! Every detail, from the heirloom room furnishings to the delicious breakfast served in the beautifully period set dining room is a treat to all the senses...and especially to the sense of connection with our rich heritage in Colonial America. Edenton is only a few miles away and full of fascinating history. We would love to share this experience with other friends in the future and whatever you do, don't miss taking a morning cup of coffee outside on the lawn and soak in the sights, sounds and invigorating breeze of the Albemarle Sound.

                                Recommended for: Sightseeing, romantic getaway, age 55+, girls getaway, adventure seekers, families with teenagers.

                                This home was AMAZING!!! Filled with beautiful period antiques that made you feel like you were in a museum instead of a Rental or Bed and Breakfast. The rooms are huge and beautifully decorated! The owners are warm, friendly, and make you feel like family instead of guests. The grounds are beautiful with wonderful views of the Albermarle Sound. Just breathtaking! Perfect getaway for two or a entire family and if your looking for a perfect place for a wedding? Look no further, this is the place for you! This was truely a wonderful experience!

                                This has got to be one of the most beautiful places I have stayed and with the most charming, accommodating hosts. More of a B&B than a self-serve, but well-worth a long chat with the hosts of this authentic, historic home. Stories and history reek from the walls and the tranquility and conditions of the grounds is well-worth the trip off the beaten path!
