The foyer of this North Carolina vacation spot resounds with memories of lyrical melodies playing on the antique gramophone while your hosts, Margi and Doug Erickson, greet you warmly and prepare you for your stay. The atmosphere here at the inn is casual and relaxed.

The formal Victorian parlor invites conversation with a beau or a friend amid period furnishings and decorations, including an antique Weaver pump organ.

Sit in the comfortable library to read a book, watch television or a good movie on DVD. Also be sure to notice the collection of old cameras in the secretary.

At the heart of every bed & breakfast is the dining room, where guests gather around the large table in an atmosphere that lends itself to sharing the day’s events, the numerous area attractions or a chat with a new-found friend.

And, of course, the breakfast! The C.W. Worth House breakfast offers hearty fare to start off your busy day. Standards include tea or freshly ground Guatemalan coffee, fresh fruit, juice, homemade muffins, as well as a chef’s choice entrée such as savory rosemary and goat cheese bread pudding, artichoke/mushroom quiche or banana/pecan upside-down pancake.  For early risers, coffee is available in the kitchen at 7:30 and the daily paper is in the library.

Whether you stroll in the garden, sit on the patio or lounge in the hammock for two, the landscaped gardens will fill your senses with southern fragrances. The soothing sound of a waterfall gurgling gently into the fishpond is sure to relax you. The second floor veranda provides an intimate setting to overlook the gardens.
