The 2015 carriage house is located in Chapel Hill and less than 10 miles from downtown. This two bedroom house is nestled in a 32 acre wooded lot, and is just two miles from I-40. The open floor plan is inviting and suits families. There are over 2 miles of private nature trails.
We provide fresh eggs, fresh vegetables (as available from the garden) and breakfast cereal, assorted sodas, bottled water and fruit (as available).
The house now has wireless internet and Roku with SLING TV.
The 1000 square foot carriage house has large picture windows with views of the wooded property and the sun setting through the forest. The vaulted ceilings compliment the open floor plan. The kitchen is fully equipped with granite countertops.
Each bedroom is equipped with a ceiling fan, nightstands, dressers & drawers, and a closet.
The covered porch is wonderful for a morning tea, afternoon snack or dinner at the table which seats six. There is even a covered/private shower located discreetly on the porch (this is not running during the winter months though).
Guests have access to the wooded trails on the property. They are marked with white posts indicating the outer perimeter (max of 1 mile) and inner paths marked with green and orange posts. We hope guests take advantage of the hiking paths that traverse through the woods and total about two miles. The undulating hills and changing terrain offer a bit of serenity. It's great for walking the dog!
There is ample parking space (4-5 vehicles and small moving vans) in front of the carriage house. There is a garage/shop that is OFF access to guests. It will remain locked unless Mike is working on another wood project or landscaping. The apartment is on the second floor and has a private entrance and different lock system.
Mountain Creek Road is a private road/driveway shared by other homeowners. Please respect their privacy and stay within the 32 acre lot that is available to you and that you are encouraged to traverse.
We hope you have a memorable stay, and we'll do anything we can to help with that - including giving you absolute privacy.
Mike responds to texts within minutes, so if you cannot figure out the AC or the TV, just send him a text.
We now have a small field dedicated to your pet's needs. There is a path leading from the carriage house to a field (see photos) so that your dog can relieve himself/herself and you don't have to worry about cleaning up afterwards.
We ask that dog owners leash their pet while outside (if they haven't met Mike, Alicia or Bailey yet).
We have three pets: Bailey (a miniature German schnauzer) and Maggie and Ollie (two kittens). There are chickens that will remain in their houses/coops while guests with pets are at the carriage house.
We do have an outdoor shower (located on the side of the carriage house) if your lovable friend gets too dirty.
We can provide a crate (large size dog) if you need one while out and about as well as food & water bowls, leashes and other necessities.
Treat the carriage house as if it were your own.
