We rented this home for 2 months. This location was perfect for a couple traveling with three pets. We were moving from WI and needed a home base while house hunting. The home is walking distance to downtown and a day trip drive to the beaches. Easy to explore NC from this location. A wonderful dog friendly park next door. The neighbors are super friendly. The home's front porch swing is a wonderful spot to enjoy an afternoon. The home is comfortable and very cozy and well appointed. The home is next to the Famous Cotton Mill Village Museum. We recommend the the local Chicken Kitchen's bisquits...yummy! And any of the downtown restaurants are wonderful.
