My wife and I stayed with innkeeper Eric at the Hamilton Scot Inn for one weekend. We wish we could have stayed for a month. Eric is not only the most attentive host imaginable, he's also the builder of this incredible home. Please see the virtual tour on his website. We felt more like family than guests during our stay and will definitely make a return visit. The greek yogurt parfait and eggs Benedict breakfasts were a delight to savor. The Hamilton Scot Inn is a sanctuary where total relaxation is unavoidable.
I'm a seasoned business traveller who was looking for a "different" place to stay in RTP. A short 15 mins drive from the business park, the inn is a large beautiful house, set in a quiet park and furnished with antiques. The service is one of the best I have ever received in my years of travelling and the breakfast was varied and excellent (and this is coming from a picky frenchman staying in 5 star hotels). I would never stay anywhere else on my next trip to RTP, the inn feels like a home away from home.
My wife and I stayed at the inn the second week of March while house-hunting in the Cary area. What a treat. Eric and Sue were warm, gracious hosts, the inn itself is an architectural marvel with endless treasures within, and even their two dogs were a special treat. The room was spacious and peaceful and overlooked the wetlands behind the inn. The sound of swamp life was a great way to fall asleep and in the morning we lapsed into a food coma from all the good eats. If you are looking for a truly inviting place to stay with large doses of old-Carolina charm, this is it. Or as I told the inn keepers, "You'll feel as at home as you want to be there."
