Check Dates


The Teacherage is nestled between the luscious greenery of the Merchants Millpond State Park and the Great Dismal Swamp National Park in the charming one stop light town of Sunbury, NC. A must stop on your way in or out of the Outer Banks for clean air, canoeing and a simple a taste of country living that is guaranteed to remove even the worse case of city stress. The Teacherage is included in the National Register of Historic Places, originally serving in the 1940’s and 50´s as cozy home for the teachers of the “old” Sunbury School. Set on the former school’s campus, there are more than 5 acres to spread out on or take a stroll in to the nearby village for groceries or antiques. While our lovely porch makes a perfect spot to enjoy the best apple pie, selection of hot and cold teas or summer lemonade all day long. Choose from double/queen/twin rooms or even single rooms. Stay for a day or stay for ever - breakfast is always ready from 8 to 11 every morning and includes local farm fresh produce.

A Perfect Escape From the Daily Grind

5 on February 20, 2015

I live about 35 minutes away from the Teacherage and I had no idea it existed. I wanted to do something special for my girlfriend on Valentine's Day. So instead of staying home, I searched for a "home away from home". I decided that hotels were too impersonal, so a bed and breakfast was ideal for us. Their prices for room and breakfast are very reasonable, if not a steal! My girlfriend and I, thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. I was able to pass along some local gossip to Graham and Brenda; and they made me feel very welcomed in Sunbury, NC. I highly recommend booking a stay at the Teacherage, if you are ever in the area!

Everything you love about B&Bs!

We visited the nearby state parks and stayed at the Teacherage for a base camp. It has a very interesting history, and it's great to support the cause of its preservation. The room was spacious and comfortable, very quaint, and even had a fan/heater and box fan if we wanted it. Breakfast was delicious and varied - we couldn't eat all of what was offered! Speaking with the owners was an experience unto itself, too! Such stories! We'll definitely stay again when we come to the area.

What a country B&B should be

My husband and I stayed at the Teacherage in early October 2014. We were visiting family in the area and did not want to go too far - what a find in the Teacherage. The history of the place is so interesting. Graham and his wife Brenda purchased the school and the "teacherage" through the NC Historic Preservation Society and are in the process of doing a remarkable job of bringing back the historic touches. The Teacherage was the actual building that single female teachers stayed at while employed at the school - located next door. It's a classic country style large rambling house, four bedrooms up and and four bedrooms down. Large rooms, large windows and high ceiling with original wood floors. Rather than try to turn the house into something it's not, Graham and Brenda have stayed true to the period and done a beautiful job. Our room was large, airy and most importantly - clean. We loved it and are already planning our next visit when we visit family again in November. Hearing the history of the school and learning about their work to bring this little piece of history back into a useful part of the community is wonderful. We spent a lovely evening out on the side porch, having a small cocktail with Graham, listening to the crickets and enjoying the breeze. The next morning we opted for our breakfast on the same porch and our hosts served up a wonderful European style breakfast that left us both satisfied, filled and happy without being stuffed. Truly this is the way a B&B should be run - we highly recommend it if you find yourself anywhere in the area. It's well worth the visit.

Grahm and Brenda were very nice and interesting to talk to. My son and I were bicycle touring and found this place along the route. Excellent price and very comfy room and bed. We had the breakfast in the morning to get us on the road. Would definitely stop there again.

Out of the way, a nice find!
