Free Internet, Free Breakfast, Free Parking. These two unique homes are situated side by side in historic Rutherfordton, a town that is two years older than North Carolina itself! Built in 1835 and 1879, each house has been completely refurbished for your comfort. Your innkeepers, Dan & Lynn, will make certain that you feel at home while working in the local community or traveling around the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Wake up refreshed and ready for breakfast. We'll have a collection of home cooked favorites that will get your day off to a great start.

We go to Rutherfordton often because of family and usually stay in Forest City at one of the motels. A friend suggested the Carrier Houses and we were happy they did! Lynn and Dan were so nice, the room was excellent, my daughter loved the ship lap ceilings and it just felt like home. I found only one thing wrong (haha). I am very short and suffer from arthritis in knees, the high bed was very difficult to get in! A small step ladder is needed. Our stay was for 3 nights and we enjoyed every minute. We will be back!
We're glad that you enjoyed (most of) your stay with us. Will get right on that needed stool. Thanks

My wife and I have been looking for a vacation home near Rutherfordton and found Carrier Houses from an Internet search. We have stayed here twice, and will definitely stay here any time we are in the area. The rooms are very comfortable and clean, the breakfasts are tasty, and the owners, Dan and Lynn, are very cordial. The prices are reasonable. This is a much nicer experience than staying in a chain hotel.
We're glad you enjoyed your stay and are looking forward to spending more time in the foothills. Be sure to stop by and show us more pictures of your new place.

I have to admit that I have never stayed in a bed & breakfast, so I was not sure what to expect but I was pleasantly surprised with my experience. The owners are friendly and kind, not intrusive or pushy at all. The house was very clean and well-kept. The bed was so comfortable that I actually overslept a bit the first day. I would definitely recommend the carrier houses to anyone traveling to Rutherfordton.
We'll gladly provide a wake-up call for anyone who fears they may oversleep. We're happy to know that you were that comfortable. Thanks for the kind words.
