About the property

2BR, sleeps 6 (4 adults + 2 kids), spacious and quiet, 8 minutes from downtown

This sweet 1935 built one story farmhouse has all its original charm plus! Hardwood floors, big rooms, excellent natural light, an excellent working kitchen; all on the edge of a major wooded enclave. Our neighborhood has had the good fortune of retaining several large tracts of big, hardwood forest. Chances are very good you will see deer, hawks and other wildlife all while being within a 5 minute bike ride to the main campus of Wake Forest University and an 8 minute car ride to Winston Salem's very vibrant downtown. There are many locally owned ethnic restaurants close by: Chinese, Indian, Mexican, Italian, as well as more classic American style cuisine (Village Tavern and the River Birch are two of our favorites). FYI - We have an eclectic design style and have created an art display in the hallway with older, rustic farm tools. Please see photo.

***SPECIAL REQUEST: Please, no perfumes, hairspray, or scented candles indoors - homeowner has severe allergy! If you must use these products, please do so outdoors. Thank you.

Cute city home country feel

  • 5 of 5

We are in town from out of state to build a salt spa and prefer to stay in a home instead of a hotel. This place was comfortable, cozy and felt like a country retreat! We too saw many deer, rabbit and the flowering trees and plants were lush and stunning! We extended our stay twice!

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was perfect for us. A great place to bring your dog and close enough to town to enjoy all of our wedding events in Winston Salem. We really enjoyed the yard and the screened porch was perfect on a rainy afternoon. We did see a deer on the front lawn in the early morning moonlight!

Winston Salem Cottage

  • 4 of 5

This small farm house was great for our stay. Conveniently located near the college but also to the area (near relatives we were visiting). It does have only one bath which might be a problem for some but plenty of sleeping space. Very clean and quiet.

Peaceful neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

This is a quaint little older home that was exceptionally clean and in a quiet, safe neighborhood. The house is across the street from a small wooded area and we saw several deer in the morning and evening while sitting on the screened in porch. The home is a mix of old decor and modern updates. We had to be off and on the campus of Wake Forest several times a day which was the purpose of our visit. It is less than a five minute drive from campus which fit our needs perfectly. If visiting the University I would stay here again. The owners were quick and responsive to our needs.

Lovely Charming, Unique with an Antique Modern Artistic Flare

  • 5 of 5

What a delight to stay in such a cozy, charming house. The interior was full of surprises that really please the artistic eye. My daughters and I created a memorable time cooking on an antique Hotpoint Stove. Thank you for making your house such a unique pleasure.
