The Space

Featured on the 2013 Historic Homes tour, this house boasts a sunny, open interior, porch swing, and brick backyard patio in the College Hill neighborhood. A large bedroom with a queen bed awaits 1 or 2 responsible guests. The bathroom has a pedestal sink, shower & claw foot tub. Hardwood floors throughout. We have two rooms for AirBnB so the bathroom is one to share if both rooms are occupied, which is not that often. From our house, you can walk to the local colleges including UNCG and Greensboro College, eat at a variety of restaurants two blocks away, visit funky shops, and more. If you want to go downtown where there are brew pubs, dozens of other restaurants, shops, and museums, that's a 20 minute walk, 10 minute bus ride, or 5 minute drive. Originally built in 1924, this home has charm inside and out! Hosts are baby boomers who are education advocates who can recommend local spots for eating, entertainment, and history. Guests are welcome to enjoy common rooms in the home to watch television, listen to music, sit around the kitchen island, or watch the chickens in the yard. Hosts will be in and out of the house during the day. Join us for conversation anytime! Restaurants within walking distance (2 blocks) include Vegetarian, Italian, Indian, American and Japanese as well as fast food options and sandwich shops. You'll also find stores to buy fun stuff, a hair salon, bars, and TWO coffee houses!

Guest Access

Guests are invited to be part of the household and enjoy all areas of the home!

Interaction with Guests

We generally find guests like to have some conversations with us...and we like that, too. We also know having "down" time is important for most people when away from home--it's easy to have that here as well.

The Neighborhood

This neighborhood is one where you'll find people walking their dogs, carrying cups of coffee, or going to and from the local colleges. Generally, it is fairly quiet, but it's so nice to see people around all the time. While you're here, enjoy our amazing Farmer's Market--one of the oldest in the country. Or, take in a show at Triad Stage where we've had season seats since the theatre opened 10 years ago. Or, enjoy an outdoor summer exercise class close by on most evenings.

Getting Around

There's plenty within walking distance from our house but you'll definitely need a taxi or Uber for the 20 minute ride from the airport to our home. Using Uber generally costs about $15. We are also a 15 minute walk to the train station if you come to town that way.

Other Things to Note

We're able to share the history of this area which is fascinating!

Millions of people are using Airbnb to sleep in strangers' homes, beds, and even couches. They have an amazing selection and you can't find their stuff anywhere else. There is a catch: you often need to contact several hosts to actually get a place to stay, so make sure you give yourself some lead time.

Place's rules

No smoking, please. Come and go as you like. We typically exercise at the local YMCA and have breakfast at home. Guests are welcome to join us for whatever we're cooking up! We are a non-smoking house and while we love pets, our small John Henry is afraid of other dogs so please leave yours at home (sorry!). Ask us if you need anything--surely, we'll have what you need on hand or can direct you where you can get it.
