We stay in a lot of bed and breakfasts and this one has a terrific location and good off street, secure parking. Downtown is an easy ten minute walk and the neighborhood is lovely and eminently walkable. The inn itself is clean but definitely older and room was dark for our taste. We are big coffee drinkers and were amazed...

I appreciate your comments, however, I would encourage you or any guests staying in the future to bring things to my attention while you are at the Inn and I will take steps to make your stay more enjoyable. We try to be very conservative with our natural resources. The Keurig machine uses coffee pods that are not earth friendly....

We stayed in the Polk Room for a few evenings while on business in Raleigh. It is, as is the entire house, decorated with antique furniture and accessories. What a beautiful claw footed tub too! This room had a private porch overlooking the landscaping in the front of the Inn. We also sat in the back among the pretty flowers,...

We stayed at the Oakwood Inn this past week and had what I'd honestly say was the best BnB stay we've ever experienced! Doris & Gary are truly charming hosts, their breakfasts are nothing short of spectacular (and we are picky!) and the Inn is so tastefully decorated one feels as if you're living in royalty. Chatting with Doris and...

My husband and I, along with friends, have stayed at this B&B at least four times over the past several years. The inn keepers, Doris and Gary, are both very friendly and accomodating. The house is beautiful and inviting and the historic neighborhood is really fabulous with mature trees, birds and great homes and streets to walk down. They are...

Had a wonderful experience here. Price was very reasonable. We loved the house and felt very much at home. Met great people at breakfast which was delicious and very unique. The location couldbt have been more perfect. Will definitely visit again!

We stayed 2 nights in the Pell room and loved it. It had a little private balcony, fireplace and charming character. Breakfast was delicious and the hospitality was wonderful. We were running late for our check-in yet we were met at the door with a nice warm welcome. The bed was comfortable and the bedding was luxurious.

My wife and I booked a quick getaway to celebrate our wedding anniversary in Raleigh, a city we hadn't yet visited since moving to NC 3 years ago. We always stay in B&B's but the selection in Raleigh was lacking. When we arrived (8 pm on a Friday evening), the inn keepers seemed perturbed even though we had called ahead...

There was an Interim Innkeeper at the Inn when you stayed in August. I apologize that you feel the hospitality was lacking and would like to assure that is not the way we run our business. In regard to the credit card problem, we had explained in our confirmation that there was an issue and it really took close to...

This was our first experience of staying at a B&B ... and what a positive experience it was. The young family operating this very quaint old Inn were as accommodating as they could possibly be.

Yesterday I made reservations for March of 2014. I did click the terms and agreements but failed to notice that you are billed in full at the time of the reservation.

The reservation system clearly states the policies which include: reservations are paid in full upon reserving and that all cancellations will be charged a $20.00 fee. The policies have to be accepted by the guest before the reservation will go through and the credit card charged. An email cancellation was received at 10:30pm but not opened until the next day.

“We stayed in the Lane Room. It was small but worked for us as all we did was sleep. I will note that there is a claw foot tub and the way the shower curtain hangs it can be a bit tight to shower. Did not bother me as I only need hot water :)”

“My only caveats to a couple deciding on a room at this inn has to do with the tub and TV. This particular room has a historical clawfoot tub which is too small for a couple to use together and the TV is located in a very awkward spot making it fine for catching the news, but not the greatest for watching a movie in bed.”
