Rich in both history and charm, this building was once the home of Mrs. Wilkes, proprietress of the famous Boarding House and still-operational Mrs. Wilkes Dining Room. This third floor apartment offers a unique accommodations for up to four Lucky guests. You’ll wake up every morning to beautiful Jones Street, where cobblestones and ancient oak trees dripping in Spanish moss compelled Southern Living Magazine to name it the “Prettiest Street in America.”
The original hardwood floors and 12’ ceilings will give you a sense of stepping back in time, while the tasteful interior decor and modern amenities provide all the luxuries of staying at hotel - with more room. The large living room has plenty of space and comfortable seating so you can curl up with a good book or enjoy a movie night with your entire party. The galley kitchen opens to the dining room, so you’ll always be part of the conversation. You’ll find everything you need to cook a full meal, or just enjoy a cup of coffee while you plan your day.
The bedroom features a king sized, four poster bed, and the dresser and closet provide plenty of space to unpack and settle in. The ensuite bath has a tub/shower combo, vanity with sink and a separate vanity ideal for getting ready for a night out.
Wilkes Three is an ideal location to call home while exploring the Historic District.
