Hi, We’re Cara & Dan. We look forward to hosting you! We enjoy welcoming fellow travelers to our cozy cottage in the woods.
We have a Collie named Mr. Parker; he’s a Lassie look-a-like and is always happy to pose for photos. When he's not helping Cara in her sewing studio, he likes going on hikes and walks around town.
We are foodies & enjoy chatting about farm-to-table dining and what’s in season at the farmer’s market. In case you haven't noticed, Cara is obsessed with James Bond-Roger Moore version-she’d love to know your favorite Bond. At the moment, Sean Connery has the edge. Since the cottage is hidden in the woods in the middle of town, we thought it’d be just the kind of pad 007 would hang-out in if he had spy biz in Winston-Salem, ha! J.B.'s cottage is a comfy, cozy retreat & fun place to stay.
Shows we love: Billions, Game of Thrones, House of Cards, Curb Your Enthusiam & House Hunters International
