About the Property
Private Home Nestled in Forest (2+ BR, 1 bath, Sleeps 1-6)
The master bedroom has a Queen-size Sleep Number bed, blackout curtains and a private, enclosed deck off the back of the house. The second bedroom has a full-size bed with a sateen comforter set, blackout curtains and two windows into the forest. The 400 square foot loft has a large forest-view skylight and is outfitted with two desks and reading chairs, as well as a futon sofa/bed. The loft provides an additional semi-private sleeping space (there is a door). Linens are provided for the full-size loft futon bed and a twin air mattress upon request. The bathroom is newly remodeled and the kitchen is fully equipped with all that you need to enjoy cooking and baking during your stay (including a new side-by-side refrigerator, a new glass-top stove/oven, a dishwasher, coffee maker, toaster and basic pantry items such as salt and pepper, spices, flour, sugar, olive oil, basic condiments, tea, honey, and coffee to start your first morning). We strive to provide all of the comforts of home including high-speed wireless internet, a charging station, a hair dryer, ironing board and iron, shampoo and conditioner, first aid kit, hand lotion, zip lock bags, saran wrap, food storage containers and more.
This home is ideal for visiting scholars, couples and families of all varieties, parents visiting adult children at Duke or in the general area, patients/families visiting or receiving treatment at Duke Medical Center (ask about our discounts for medical visits), solo travelers and anyone seeking some peaceful time.
We welcome families with small children (we have two of our own!). There is a play area in the side yard, which we put together for our daughter on her second birthday--it includes a small slide, a children's picnic table and a sand box. A gate for the bottom of the stairs, a twin air mattress, pack-n-play, high chair, and children's toys and books are also available upon request.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

About the owner: This was our home for years. We were married next to the Eno River within walking distance of the home and our reception was held on the deck afterward (in April when the azaleas are in full bloom)! With the birth of our second child we moved to nearby Chapel Hill. We love this beautiful forest location so much that we couldn't bear to part with the home and instead decided to share it with others. We still visit often.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love to walk the miles of nature trails that begin at the end of the driveway and lead to the Eno River. The Eno River trails are a favorite in our family- they provided the backdrop for our wedding and we still walk them often!
