Space 1,589 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 4 nights


About the property

A great location in central Pittsboro - with private space to enjoy

Updated mid-century ranch home in a great established neighborhood in unique Pittsboro. The house has all creature comforts in addition to a great yard to enjoy. A truly relaxing place to unwind after exploring the area.

My space is located close enough to downtown Pittsboro to be convenient but tucked away on a peaceful side road of mature trees and houses.

The natural spaces are on great display at the house and the Haw River canoeing and kayaking, disc golf, and other outdoor attractions are nearby. Not to mention the ease of exploring all that Chapel Hill has to offer - less than 30 minutes away.

About Shawn

I'm a Midwest transplant currently living in North Carolina. I continue to enjoy exploring the area and all it has to offer - whether it be hiking a new trail, paddling a new stretch of water or trying out a new restaurant. I love to travel and take-in other cultures...I seem to learn a little bit more about myself with each trip. Staying at vacation rentals provides a great means of getting a more "authentic" experience and I could never see myself resorting to a hotel chain again!

Shawn purchased this house in 2013

A Little GEM

  • 5 of 5

This home is cozy, clean, and delightfully appointed. Every inch of it is tastefully decorated (whenever we were in the house, I'd gaze around and pick up home decor tips myself!), and every little supply--from body wash to food seasonings to fluffy pillows to dimmers on the lights--communicated such tasteful and considerate owners. The house is nestled and quiet, and the kitchen is a cook's dream. When we visit the Chapel Hill region in the future, I would LOVE to stay in this house! Highly recommended; this home is a little gem!

Always a pleasure

  • 5 of 5

My return visit to this Pittsboro get away was wonderful once again. The inviting welcome of soft lighting, a shining porch light to show the way was appreciated. Every detail attended to, I had another enjoyable stay. A welcome note with a personal message and contact information during my stay gave assurance all would remain well for the duration of the stay. Shawn & Keil are a joy to work with. 5 Star Service!

Welcoming Peaceful Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

I enjoyed my stay very much. I especially had some fun with the mood lighting in the kitchen, what a great place to spend time. The patio was my favorite place and the fire pit, along with the woods surrounding it made for a very relaxing place to be. I ended my day with a glass of wine under the lighted umbrella on the patio and started it with a warm cup of coffee there in the morning. My first morning bought 2 deer visitors that made it that much nicer.

The home was very clean and the owner provided exceptional hospitality. Communications are excellent and that is an important priority. The neighborhood is quiet and provides a nice place for a morning or evening walk.

The Farmers Market was walking distance and made for a very enjoyable place to be on a Saturday morning. Downtown Pittsboro has much to offer and is a quaint place to visit.

I will return for future visits and would highly recommend this property.
