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. Their goal is to create a peaceful and enjoyable getaway for you. The desk full of brochures, maps, walking tours as well as Margi & Doug’s sightseeing advice will help make your stay as delightful as possible.
The formal Victorian parlor invites conversation with a beau or a friend amid period furnishings and decorations, including an antique Weaver pump organ and 17th Century French lithographs.
Relax in our well appointed library which is the perfect setting to plan your adventures, read a good book, sip tea, watch television or a good movie on DVD or simply visit. Also be sure to notice the collection of old cameras in the secretary.
At the heart of our 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. Wake up to the smell of freshly brewed coffee intermingled with aromas of freshly baked goods and other temptations. Breakfast standards include tea or locally roasted and freshly ground Guatemalan coffee, juice, fresh fruit, 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 picturesque garden, sit on the patio or lounge in the hammock for two, the landscaped gardens will fill your senses with southern fragrances.
