The home was beautiful with exquisite antiques and furnishings.
The home was beautiful. The furnishing were exquisite! Some of the renovations were not complete and you could easily tell after you spent some time in the home. The home is not set up for a family of six. We had trouble trying to all sit in the living room since it only had two wing chairs and a small sofa. It also isn't the best home for children. We were constantly watching to be certain they were not getting too close to the beautiful accent pieces around the rooms. It would be a perfect home for a couple to visit or ever two couples. What I was most surprised about was the food in the refrigerator that was open and appeared to be left from other visitors to the home. The pantry was also full of opened food. We had to rearrange the food in order to put our items in the refrigerator, freezer, and pantry. There was also an army of ants in the kitchen. As our experience in the past has been, the home has always been ready for occupancy by the renter. They were on the floor, the counter top, and on the island. The neighborhood was not what I expected. Beyond the home, the surrounding neighborhood appeared to be questionable. The town of Edenton should not be missed by anyone that travels even remotely close by. It is the friendliest town I have visited in many years. It still rolls up on Sundays and observes the Blue Laws that most towns have done away with. We celebrated the 4th of July with the town people and enjoyed their festival that was set up. The Outer Banks is an hour or so away and we enjoyed a day there also. David Stevenson, one of the owners, could not have done more to help us enjoy our stay. I must have called him three times or more and he was very helpful each time. If you want a place to get away to and enjoy stepping back in time, Edenton, NC is for you.
