About Eric Hoke

I was born and raised in North Carolina. I have a great passion for History being that my family settled North Carolina in the mid 1700's, specifically Old Salem. Many pieces from my heritage are in this home. We now operate as a Bed and Breakfast. If you want to book the whole Inn, please call as we do this often for families and friends. I remain as the Innkeeper and host of the property. I try to accommodate most requests i.e. using the kitchen and other cooking equipment.

Eric Hoke purchased this chateau / country house in 2003

Why Eric Hoke chose Heartland

In 1987 I walked this property and knew immediately where I was going to build this home. The home was going to overlook the lowlands, leading to Flat Branch, the creek that bordered the property line.

Since building in 2003, the lowlands have evolved into wetlands due to the beaver damming Flat Branch, creating a natural habitat for waterfowl.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

I built this home to respect history and nature. The home is extremely private which allows you to explore and relax.

Wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Hamilton Scott Inn could not have been any better. Eric greeted us upon arrival and was ready to make sure we had everything we needed. As a retreat space it was perfect for our group. We enjoyed the Inn so much that we chose to visit the local food markets to make our own meals and eat in rather than go out to restaurants. The Inn's kitchen is wonderful! I would highly recommend the Hamilton Scott Inn to anyone.

Exquisite home on serene wetlands property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this home for 4 days and didn't want to leave. The home -- a marvel of architecture and design infused with history -- is warm and inviting. Our room (the Courtney Suite) was spacious yet cozy and the bed was quite comfortable. Nature lover that I am, I found the wetlands out back to be peaceful and relaxing. I could sit on the patio with a book and a glass of wine all day long. The nightly chorus of frogs, birds and crickets under a star-filled sky made it all just perfect. With close proximity to Research Triangle Park, it's convenient to shops, restaurants and anything that you could need. Though with the gorgeous gourmet kitchen and grill out back, I think I preferred dining in to dining out! I highly recommend this property and will be back!
