Opened July 24, 2017 (Inside is finished, we are currently repainting the exterior and landscaping the yard)-Step back to a slower time when people sat on the front porch sipping sweet tea & watching lightning bugs... where both conversations and life were slower. At Wilson Cottage, our hope is that your stay will allow you to enjoy a reprieve from the busyness of normal life, to be able to relax and breathe in the southern air while sitting in the rockers out on the front porch. Welcome!
Wilson Cottage is located in Mt Airy ("Mayberry"), the hometown of Andy Griffith, was built in 1928. We opened July 24, 2017 with the inside complete and we are currently painting the outside and redoing the landscaping. The Cottage is located just 4 houses down from Wally's Service Station, a popular attraction for Andy Griffith fans that boasts a gift shop, Mayberry Squad Car Tours, and a replica of the Mayberry Courthouse. Downtown is just 4 blocks away where guests will find popular attractions: Snappy Lunch, souvenir/gift shops, ice cream shops, Andy Griffith Museum and more!
You have access to the entire house. Our two adult sons live in the apartment above the garage out back. They both work full time and are available for emergencies, otherwise they will respect your privacy.
We live several blocks away and are available anytime during your stay should you need us, otherwise we will respect your privacy during your visit!
Coffee and tea are readily available as well. (Don't forget to follow us, Wilson Cottage, on FB/IG where we share our renovation story and post information and upcoming special events here in Mayberry!) Both bedrooms have cable. The living room has a smart tv so you if you have a Hulu or Netflix account you can use that OR play dvds.
