Or if you want to find local breweries, there are many to choose from that welcome you with local charm. For the food lovers, there is amazing BBQ close by, Steakhouses, and Seafood hot spots close by for your dining nights out. Or you can also eat in, enjoy a night by the fire, and sit around the farmhouse table and enjoy endless conversation while the crickets go to town giving you background music into the night.
Our location is very desirable as we are located close to our beautiful Universities, Shopping centers, outdoor fun and fine dining. This home is fully renovated, parking spaces for up to 4 -6 cars depending on size, is professionally decorated, landscaped and boasts a full gourmet kitchen along with washer and dryer. Our beautiful back porch houses an amazing fire pit to enjoy stories and smores, as well as outdoor seating for 12+, while someone is welcome to fall asleep under the trees in our hammock.

About Derek & Jillian
Southern dears and darlings ourselves, we have lived on the East Coast for much of our life. You just cannot go wrong with horses, fried food, beaches, mountains and the charm of all the wonderful people around you. We have been so blessed with amazing friendships for ourselves and our children. Now living in the northern states, we look forward to many southern stays throughout the year to keep our roots watered and our charm in tact, as the good ol southern hug (or the squeeze you til you need to catch your breathe) just cannot be replaced. We are incredibly grateful for moments in life that are cherished. Sometimes the smallest moments in life, truly become the biggest things. Cherish each of them.
Derek & Jillian purchased this House in 2007
Why Derek & Jillian chose Garner
We have loved this home from the moment we built it, the open floorplan has let us have many gatherings within the walls. The bonfires have shared stories that have brought laughter and tears. We want to open our doors to you, so you can gather around the table, with a glass of wine, or a cup of tea... so you can also enjoy the early morning sun, and the late night conversations. Because, this home wants love in it all the time, and we cannot wait for you to create your memories within it.

Exceeded our expectations!
My family and I were visiting some relatives in the Clayton area for the holidays. This home was stunning and cozy. We enjoyed our Christmas in North Carolina. It was actually more spacious than I expected. Would definitely consider staying here again!
Spacious, clean, perfect home!
This house is spectacular! Plenty of room, tastefully decorated. Centrally located. Highly recommend!
The house was exactly as described if not better. It was beautifully decorated and spotless. The beds are possibly the most comfortable that any of us had ever slept in! It is close to many stores and restaurants. Just a great location.
I will be finding another reason to visit just to stay in this house!
We were in town for my little brothers wedding and the house was perfect. It was clean, comfortable, well stocked and exactly what we needed. Our only issue was when we went to grill and the tank was out of gas. The owners responded immediately and someone was there quickly to get the tank and tank it for a refill. If we ever find ourselves in the Raleigh area, we will definitely rent it again.
Spacious and relaxing
This Is second consecutive year of being a client of Mr. And Mrs. Twaddle and wouldn't stay anywhere else when I come to North Carolina. Private accommodations with unlimited access to home and yard.
beautiful house but not ready when we arrived
It was lovely but we were disappointed that the cleaning lady was still there at 4:00 check in time. She said she had been told we wouldn't arrive till later which was not true. It is also important to note that the 2 pullout couches are in rooms open to the entire living area. There is no privacy for anyone sleeping there
We’re glad you enjoyed your stay and thank you so much for providing us your feedback. As mentioned, the cleaning was being finished upon your arrival and we have taken measures to prevent this from occurring again. Any delay in home readiness, even one less than 30 minutes as in your case, is not something we want for any guest. Once again thank you for allowing us to be your host and we hope you had safe travels home. Warm Regards, Derek & Jillian
There is so much to do around this Home Sweet Home... fine dining (may I recommend the Angus Barn), the beach if you hop on 40E, the mountains if you hop on 40W, shopping centers, Universities, and overall Southern goodness!
