Mother and I planned the trip, I had never heard of Edenton. We found the home, it was nice. There were no railings in the rear; mother needs a walker. So we used the front, which had two railings, one of which was rotted out at the bottom.
The day we got there I learned my bathroom toilet leaked, and the next morning my bedroom light went out. Neither were fixed, however the broken microwave was replaced.
Mother and I enjoyed the town, from the historic buildings, dating Victorian to Revolutionary. Our home was Victorian, and the interior was excellent, good furniture, great art, and modern amenities,
If you like roaming around old places, Edenton is your place. For some reason, even though it is on the water, there was no boating.
The main road in town has the business district which looks dated from the early to mid twentieth century, and we saw the only chain store downtown was a Sears that sold outdoor equipment. The rest of the businesses were all private individual.
Our home was clean, and there were dishes everywhere in the kitchen.
All in all, we found North Carolinans to be friendly, and the state appears to be well integrated.
This was an awesome find!!! The home was lovely and not far from the water. The kitchen is ready to use, and the beds make the "Sandman" jealous. What can I say, we will be back. By the way, it comfortably sleeps a family of four.
This was the second Memorial Day weekend stay in this house and quite a bit better than the first stay. Walter (the Manager) was very easy to contact and work with and the house was a very nice place to just unwind.
A couple of things that needs attention: The ceiling fan in the back bedroom looked like it still had the same dust from last year and toilet seat in the bathroom off that bedroom was broken.
Other than those two items: Great deal.
