About Holly Porter

Former Teacher who quit her job to pursue her dream of turning her great-grandfather's house into a B&B. Originally from North Carolina, I have taught in Charlotte, NC and Phoenix, AZ.

Why Holly Porter chose Blue Ridge Mountains

This house has been in my family for over 100 years. It has recently gone through a major renovation to be transformed into a B&B.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Close to Stone Mountain and Elkin Valley Wineries, this home has all the qualities for a boutique, intimate B&B experience. I live in the home and am available for wine tours, recommendations, and any other needs you might have during your stay.

Charming and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

This was one of the most relaxing mini-vacations! Beautiful surroundings and attentive host made this a wonderful stay. Weekend breakfasts were awesome! If you are on the fence about booking, just do it. You will get into the Traphill frame of mind and not be disappointed.

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The Holbrook house is truly a gem in the world of bed and breakfasts! Holly was an amazing host, offering delicious breakfast and plenty of hospitality! The house itself is over 100 years old, her great grandfather's place and is quaint, charming and cozy! Just minutes from Stone Mountain State Park, a close drive to some great eats in downtown Elkin and not far from the Blue Ridge Parkway.

We have plans to go back and enjoy a visit with Holly again!

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough about The Holbrook House and owner Holly. The House itself has been carefully restored to provide excellent amenities, while retaining its historic appearance and feel. Holly was great at providing information on activities I was interested in and really knows the area well. This is the perfect B & B when you want a base to return to that is isolated and peaceful. Travel times to things to do are reasonable (15-30 minutes) and the drives through the countryside are part of the experience. I highly recommend a stay at The Holbrook House.

Wonderful Place!

I was so impressed by the Holbrook House! The house is beautifully and thoughtfully renovated, the bed VERY comfortable, and the breakfasts were amazing. Holly is a fantastic host and made me feel right at home. I especially appreciate that she was able to accommodate my special requests for breakfast. I definitely want to go back!

Nice and quiet B&B

  • 5 of 5

The Holbrook House is a lovely old home that has been beautifully restored! Our stay was comfortable and the owner/hostess was great. She was helpful with any request or inquiry about local sights and activities. The rural setting is an easy drive to lots of the area wineries and landmarks.
