My wife and I were trying to get away for a few days and happened upon this place. It was costing us around the same price as hotels in the area, and it was still close to downtown Raleigh. We figured we would give it a try since we had never tried a Bed and Breakfast before. We loved it! We were in the Linden Room (which was great), and enjoyed the breakfast the following morning. The owners were very friendly, and knew a thing or two about food! All in all, it was a great stay! We'd gladly recommend it.

Historic location near all of downtown Raleigh. Owners were friendly but gave us privacy. When asked for places for dinner Gary was able to recommend many different local establishments. I recommend to a friend to stay.

We had a meeting early one Saturday morning in Raleigh and looked for a B & B to stay in. We liked the looks of Oakwood and booked for the Friday night before our meeting. Friends called Doris for a restaurant recommendation and she helped them out. They called her back and Doris had a nice 'invitation' waiting for us when we arrived with our dinner reservation printed on it for meeting our friends and she gave us directions. Breakfast was right on time and was very much a gourmet experience. We would stay here again! Mr. & Mrs. C, Concord, NC

Wonderful describes our room and the innkeepers! This was our first B&B experience and it has definately raised a high bar for everyone else! I don't have any complaints and would definately recommend them to anyone!

I am a seasoned B&B guest. The inn is withing walking distance of downtown shopping, restaurants and museums. Lovely home in historic neighborhood with other restored homes and carefully tended gardens. Room was pretty and very comfortable - decorated with antiques. Great bath towels, soaps. New TV in room which you don't often get in B&Bs and wireless which was great. Updated binder in the room with local shopping/restaurant info very helpful. Homebaked cookies and refrigerator with juices and sodas & water dispenser for refilling water bottles. Breakfasts were delicious and the front porch was perfect for reading/napping. Hosts are pleasant but busy people - they don't overwhelm you and are accessible by phone if you need them during the day. Helpful with printing boarding passes etc. Oakwood Inn rates up at the top for me.

This grand old home is inviting, spacious, and a wonderful retreat in the historic district. The breakfast is hearty and the innkeeper was very accommodating to our dietary needs.

Now that we're "empty nesters" my husband & I tend to stay in B&Bs. The Oakwood Inn ranks at the top of our list! It was quiet, comfortable, and very friendly. Gary & Doris provide a wonderful breakfast & snacks (including homemade cookies) are aways available. Our private balcony was very romantic and just the place to sit with a nice bottle of wine in the evening! The neighborhood is beautiful and a great place for a daytime or evening stroll. Can't wait to return! (from San Jose, California)

We stayed in the Polk, which has an extremely comfortable king-size bed, and woke up to the sound of the fountain outside the window. This room has its own porch complete with swing. Breakfast was delicious, with fresh fruit and the best pancakes ever. The owners were very friendly and helpful.
