About Karen Giroux

I am a retired entrepreneur who loves living in Chapel Hill. My husband and I moved here in 1976 and have enjoyed calling North Carolina home ever since.

Karen Giroux purchased this lodge in 2016

Why Karen Giroux chose Chapel Hill

I live nearby and wanted to allow others to enjoy this wonderful setting whether for a golf outing, a wedding at the Club, or a private setting to relax before and after a sporting event at the local universities.

What makes this lodge unique

The view is terrific and the layout of the house is perfect for small gathering where people can have as much privacy as they want or enjoy the company of others in beautiful surroundings.

Great place to Relax and Refresh

  • 5 of 5

As a frequent business traveler to the Raleigh – Chapel Hill area, I was looking for an alternative to the local hotels. The Inn is just the spot. It is clean, fresh and quiet, just the place to relax and refresh. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and nicely decorated. Each room has an equipped kitchenette, in addition to two standard kitchens on each floor. The living room can accommodate a number of people and it’s nice to have a separate dining area. I only required one room and found that having access to my room directly from outside or through the main house was very nice, as I could come and go without disturbing other guests. The fruit with the continental breakfast was very fresh. I particularly appreciated the athletic center which is located a short distance from the Inn. It is well equipped with an indoor pool and not busy in the evening.

Within a short distance I found a nice Italian restaurant, a great coffee shop, a grocery store and liquor store. The commute to work is better than the commute from my regular hotel as I did not find myself sitting in traffic. In addition, it is a place I would stay if attending a weekend game at UNC or Duke.

Karen is accessible, responsive and a pleasure to work with. I also found the residents of the community to be helpful and pleasant. I will defiantly return again.
