About Karen Giroux
I am a retired entrepreneur who loves living in Chapel Hill. My husband and I moved here in 1976 and have enjoyed calling North Carolina home ever since.
Karen Giroux purchased this Lodge in 2014
Why Karen Giroux chose Chapel Hill
I live nearby in Governors Club and wanted to allow others to enjoy this wonderful setting whether for a golf outing, a wedding at the Club, or a private setting to relax before and after a sporting event at the local universities.
What makes this Lodge unique
The view is terrific and the layout of the house is perfect for small gathering where people can have as much privacy as they want or enjoy the company of others.

It was perfect for what we needed!
Great property. Great working with Karen. Perfect place for the needs of my colleagues and our retreat objectives.
Thanks, Rebecca! Your group was terrific. Come back anytime!
GREAT place for group outings
This house is PERFECT for group or family outings. Centrally located, wonderfully appointed furnishings and appliances made for a very comfortable stay. And the Owner could not have been more hospitable.
Thanks! Always gratifying when a group finds my inn a perfect place to get together and enjoy each other's company, and maybe play some golf.
Perfect Family Weekend
This inn was the perfect solution for our family weekend. My grandma, mother, aunts, uncle, and cousins were more than impressed from the time they walked through the front door. With 6 bedrooms/bathrooms, it ensured we all had our own personal space this entire weekend. Karen was a pleasure to work with, and when we had a minor issue with the tv volume, she was literally over in minutes to help solve it. My aunt loved the waffle maker, and with a family full of coffee drinkers, the easy coffee making machine was a definite plus. The inn was clean and inviting. It exceeded my expectations.This weekend was relaxing and fun. I wish we could have stayed one more day! Thanks Karen!
However: I just remembered one area of improvement. My husband, toddler and I stayed in one of the downstairs rooms. The floors above us were creaky, and we could hear whenever someone upstairs moved around. It was quite loud at times. Luckily it was our family, so I guess we were a little more forgiving, but we did think it would have taken away from our experience more had it been someone we didn't know staying above us.
But other than this, everything else was great! So great, I almost forgot about the creaky floor! :-)
Great for UNC Alumni reunion!
We had a large group of girls come for a UNC reunion weekend and the football game. There was plenty of space for the 12 of us and the house had everything we needed. Check-in and check-out was super easy. There were hotel-like amenities like toiletries, linens, and breakfast. Just be sure to give yourself plenty of time if ordering Ubers into the Chapel Hill area. There are not that many around and we had ~20 min wait times. Thank you for the great stay!
Thanks, Bekah! It was a pleasure having you all stay at The Inn at Governors Club.
Best Thanksgiving Even
We had such a wonderful time. The Inn could not have been more perfect. Hope we can do it again soon.
Perfect for our needs - responsive owner
Stayed for a long weekend with several couples for a wedding in the area. The multiple rooms (all with private baths), the large gathering area and the outdoor deck was perfect for our needs. Karen (owner) was easy to work with, flexible and responsive to any questions/problems.
The bedding, bathroom amenities and kitchen accommodations were all top-notch. I was surprised at the level of kitchen items available, including a waffle maker, smoothie machine, etc.
Highly recommended, and I would return should circumstances allow
