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 Traphill

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.

The Holbrook House is a beautiful, tranquil and lovingly restored home. A gem!

  • 5 of 5

As lovely as the house is Holly, our host, was even lovelier. She made sure our every need was met from the beginning of our stay to the end. We were welcomed with wine and cheese, a tour of the house and interesting conversation. We had our own beautifully restored suite - bedroom, sunroom and bathroom along with use of other spaces to relax. Breakfast options were numerous and delicious! We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and would highly recommend The Holbrook House as a romantic escape or a retreat while visiting the nearby vineyards!

We Loved It.

  • 5 of 5

This was our 1st time visiting a bed and breakfast and we chose wisely. Holly was very friendly and accommodating. Our breakfast each morning was wonderful and included items that were prepared with each person's likes and dislikes considered. We enjoyed visiting Stone Mountain State Park and the Blue Ridge Parkway. Thanks Holly for a beautiful weekend. It was nice meeting you and hope to see you again.

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.
