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

Such a nice house! Designer kitchen, to be sure. Comfortable living room and delightful backyard. The only thing not superlative was the mattress, but it was most assuredly acceptable. Shawn left us some starter food in the refrigerator and wonderful cloth napkins and placemats. I honestly felt like I was a guest in his house (although we've never met). A quiet neighborhood and the surrounding area is easily accessible. We will definitely stay here again! Thanks, Shawn, for a lovely respite.

Adorable House and the Very Best Homeowners!

  • 5 of 5

Although it's been an unseasonably chilly week here, this house was always toasty and inviting! The homeowners are the most hospitable you can imagine, and we warmed ourselves with long hikes, great meals, and movies on the Apple TV. We hope to make a regular tradition of staying here! It's an altogether lovely experience!

Felt like home!

  • 5 of 5

My family instantly felt very welcome and comfortable in this home. With extended family close by to visit, it was a perfect spot to spend Christmas. Communication with the host was easy and the front door code simplified our arrival. We enjoyed the back yard terrace and appreciated having the cookware we needed. Downtown very convenient. Will stay again!

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!
