He built this hidden gem and now manages it with the help of Gracie, his able four legged assistant. Breakfast is cooked to order - a first for us. An ideal location for weddings and special events. We will... More

Eric has a beautiful house and property just outside of the city. Although, only a few minutes away from anything you'd be interested it. From the Hamilton Scot Inn we spent the day doodling around in Cary, and then had a great dinner at the Fearrington House.

The innkeeper, Eric, and his staff, Kyla and her daughter, were amazing hosts. They were there to answer any questions we had and be as social as we wanted to be, but left us to relax and enjoy the house, too. The atmosphere at the Hamilton Scot Inn was wonderful – it was everything one could hope for – tranquil,... More

First of all, Hamilton Scot Inn is in an incredible setting; 14 beautiful acres that is completely private, quiet and peaceful.
