The Old Place was established circa 1780 to 1801 and is a pre-civil war cabin totally reconstructed. Lots of civil war history and great artifacts. Located just a 10th of a mile off the main road. The cabin has two sections to include kitchen, great room, 3 bedrooms, two large stone fireplaces with gas logs, 2 1/2 baths (whirlpool in master bath). There is a large front porch and a screened back porch. Secluded, quiet and peaceful with several hiking trails.

We booked The Old Place to celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary. What a wonderful surprise less than 5 miles from our home. Well off the beaten path, we felt we'd stepped back in time. We enjoyed walks in the woods and the gazebo at the pond. So peaceful, we hated to leave. A great way to get away and reconnect with each other and nature. We'll definitely be going again soon.

This is a wonderful place. It is quiet and peaceful. I wish there more pictures because it is way more than one would expect. If you are looking for solitude this is the place to go! Well off the "beaten track" but close enough to town. The history is amazing. We wish we could have stayed longer, but we have already booked another stay!

The most peaceful, relaxing 3 days we've ever spent. The only sound we heard was that of nature, the restful squeek of the porch swing and the gentle slap of the screen door. A little slice of Heaven on earth. We will stay here the next time we come to North Carolina.
