Hillsborough is nothing without its’ dedication to preservation, which is why we can’t resist the relocated 1915’s cottage. “Sit out on a front porch rocker facing the Eno River. This property was saved from demolition, disassembled, moved, and restored in 2018. Most of its historic structure remains, including heart pine floors, original shiplap, and cathedral ceilings.” Text from Airbnb listing.
Located on the outer edge of the historic district, this newly renovated duplex is a short walk away from Hillsborough’s award-winning restaurants, historic downtown, the arts, and nightlife. The large living room and spacious backyard provide enough room to bring your furry friends.
The Historic Guest Suit is a show-stopper. As one of the only surviving structures of its’ time, this 19th-century kitchen has been reimagined into a luxurious suite for visitors. “Southern charm is in abundance in this c. 1799 home! This sun-filled, artfully restored space is a private, “in-law” suite adjacent to a sprawling southern Estate. You’ll enjoy a private entrance, a huge living area/queen bed, a large dressing room with “his and hers” vanities, a modern bathroom with walk-in shower and oversized tub, access to the gorgeous pool, and sprawling verandas.”Text from Airbnb listing.
It’s more than just a night’s stay; it’s an experience. Situated in the heart of Hillsborough’s historic downtown, guests can enjoy a weekend of 19th-century elegance, with all the modern upgrades, of course. “Your family will be close to everything when you stay in this 1870s masterpiece located within 2 blocks of downtown Historic Hillsborough.”Text from Airbnb listing.
Only blocks from Hillsborough’s downtown, the West End has a vibe of its’ own. “The Mill House offers an eclectic experience of original artwork, warm colors, and cozy textures. Comfort says it all. Golden pine wood floors and warm red brick central hearth (nonworking) make this unique place alive with historical detail and old-school coziness. A wonderful retreat for lovers celebrating each other or an anniversary spot for a lover of solitude, the Mill House offers guests serenity.”Text from Airbnb listing.
