About the property

2BR, sleeps 6 (4 adults + 2 kids), spacious and quiet, 8 minutes from downtown

This sweet 1935 built one story farmhouse has all its original charm plus! Hardwood floors, big rooms, excellent natural light, an excellent working kitchen; all on the edge of a major wooded enclave. Our neighborhood has had the good fortune of retaining several large tracts of big, hardwood forest. Chances are very good you will see deer, hawks and other wildlife all while being within a 5 minute bike ride to the main campus of Wake Forest University and an 8 minute car ride to Winston Salem's very vibrant downtown. There are many locally owned ethnic restaurants close by: Chinese, Indian, Mexican, Italian, as well as more classic American style cuisine (Village Tavern and the River Birch are two of our favorites). FYI - We have an eclectic design style and have created an art display in the hallway with older, rustic farm tools. Please see photo.

***SPECIAL REQUEST: Please, no perfumes, hairspray, or scented candles indoors - homeowner has severe allergy! If you must use these products, please do so outdoors. Thank you.

Lovely Charming, Unique with an Antique Modern Artistic Flare

  • 5 of 5

What a delight to stay in such a cozy, charming house. The interior was full of surprises that really please the artistic eye. My daughters and I created a memorable time cooking on an antique Hotpoint Stove. Thank you for making your house such a unique pleasure.

Very convenient for a visit to wake forest university

  • 4 of 5

The home was clean and functional and worked well for our weekend visit to see our son at Wake. The home is "no frills" so if you are looking for a higher end home you should probably stay somewhere else.

Sugar Land

Cozy, convenient cottage in the heart of W-S

  • 5 of 5

We had a relaxing stay at the little cottage in Winston-Salem. It was perfect for our needs as a family of 4. We had a couple of minor problems (mildew in a cabinet, key not working), but the owner was super-responsive and friendly, getting everything taken care of immediately. I really liked that the living room had enough seating for six or eight people. The screened porch was a nice touch. Our beds were comfy, and the kitchen, while old, was roomy. We had a great time sitting around the kitchen table playing cards every night.

Super high marks for this vrbo

  • 5 of 5

Adorable house in super convenient location, cute and quiet neighborhood, and the owners really go the extra mile in stocking it (things like cream for coffee, paper towels, toilet paper, and trash bags). We didn't expect that. We loved sitting on the screen porch every morning and looking at the beautiful tall trees that characterize the whole Winston-Salem area, and watching countless butterflies. We will most assuredly be back.
