My husband James and I enjoy travelling, and for the last few years have stayed primarily in private residences when we travel, rather than in hotels. We've found that no matter how 'nice' a hotel is, staying in home in a residential neighborhood is unbeatable. You really get a feel for the city you're visiting, dine at restaurants where locals eat, shop at locally-owned stores, etc.
Gaining insight from a local is a tremendous advantage, and as a 3rd generation Charlottean, I'm happy to share our favorite places and hidden gems Charlotte has to offer.

Enjoy living in perhaps the best location in the city, in the absolute heart of Myers Park, where generations of prominent Charlotteans have made their home. Walk to many locally-owned restaurants and shops, and enjoy strolls along Hermitage Ct., a designated Historic District.
Living on such a beautiful street, in one of the prettiest neighborhoods in the South, will make your visit to Charlotte an experience you'll remember for a long time.
Hey Jim and James…as always we had wonderful time staying your apartment! It's the fifth one we've stayed in! The fireplace in this one was an added bonus. It's not everyplace you can cook a 17 lb turkey and serve 7 people comfortably but the Hermitage apartment was perfect for that…thanks again and we will see you in our next visit.
The property is located a mile from Uptown, on Hermitage Court, in the heart of the Myers Park neighborhood, where generations of prominent Charlotteans have made their home.
Created by famous landscape architect John Nolen in 1911, Myers Park's curving avenues, gracious homes and small parks combine to create one of the South's most livable neighborhoods, a mile from Uptown.
Hermitage Court is a designated Historic District, and most of the century-old homes on the street have maintained their character. The architecture of Hermitage Court is an eclectic mix of Bungalow style houses interspersed with examples of several of the revival styles that were popular in the early 20th Century, including Colonial and Tudor revival homes.
The neighborhood is lined with wide sidewalks under towering willow oak trees, conducive for a morning jog or evening stroll.
Many locally-owned restaurants and shops are an easy walk away, as are several small pocket parks, tennis courts, etc.
