When we stopped riding horses our barn was left unused so we decided to repurpose and reuse it for a guest house! We used the horse stall wood to build cabinets, and recycled lots of cool pieces into the design. It is now over 1800 sq ft of comfortable and rustic elegance with everything you'll need for a relaxing, fun, vacation! We have over 10 acres so you will have all the privacy you need, but we are available to meet any requirements and help your vacation be as stress free as possible. We are only 2 miles from downtown, historic, waterfront Edenton, and 70 miles from the Outer Banks. The barn is full of unique places from the screened in front porch to the covered patio in the back. A game table and custom barn wood dining table with two sofas (one is a queen sleeper), recliner and rocking chair offers plenty of comfy seating. There are 2 king sized bedrooms with walk in closets, and an oversized claw foot tub for soaking all your cares away! We are handicap accessible, and have a huge shower with 3 different heads to chose a water bucket! I guarantee you have never stayed anywhere like it! A full laundry room completes the space so no dirty clothes to take home!

About Sheila Bootwright
My husband and I were avid horseback riders for 40 years, and have ridden all over the USA...We raised and bred Tennessee Walking Horses, but age and knees made us give up our love for riding. Our barn was sitting empty when I got the idea to remake it into a guest house. We enjoy traveling, music, our friends and family and making new friends! We love to make our guests feel like family!
Sheila Bootwright purchased this Barn in 1999
Why Sheila Bootwright chose Chowan County
After we sold our horses the barn was just sitting there empty so we decided to give it a new life hence Barn Again!

Absolutely Amazing!! "Barn Again" exceeded all of our expectations!
Don't think twice...go ahead and book this amazing home. We had the most wonderful experience during our stay at "Barn Again". The moment we opened the front door, we knew we were stepping into a fantastic long weekend; smiles, only smiles!! The first word out of my husband's mouth was: "Wow!" Sheila and Russell Bootwright have thought of your every need!! We have never experienced a place so well appointed. As Sheila informed us, "The only thing you need to bring is the food" - and that was no exaggeration! "Barn Again" is: New, fresh, spotless, modern, fun, creative, spacious, comfortable, unique and distinctive. Only a stones throw away from the Historic District of Edenton, you'll find "Barn Again" located in quite an idyllic setting; so absolutely peaceful, serene and relaxing. I do not believe you'll find hosts anywhere more accommodating, gracious and kind than the Bootwrights!! They truly want their home to be your home away from home. You will be thoroughly pleased with your selection of "Barn Again".
Oh my Cyndi....you and Philip were just a joy to have as our guests! I'm so thankful you chose Barn Again to celebrate your 32nd anniversary....and I'm so very happy you were pleased, and enjoyed your stay with us! Guests like y'all make hosting so much fun! Your review Blessed my heart and I look forward to having you return soon! Y'all were the perfect guests! ♥️
Best alternative to hotel
We were visiting family in Edenton and needed additional space. We found Barn Again and it was perfect. It's only a couple of miles from town, the owners attended to every detail and were gracious and welcoming. The "barn" is beautifully decorated in a rustic fashion, but with a modern flare - neat, clean and comfortable. They also have a fire pit, horse shoes and other games. Charming!
We enjoyed being able to meet your needs and provide your family an inviting and warm place to stay while visiting our beautiful town! Your family was a joy to host, and we look forward to your next visit! Thanks for choosing Barn Again for your family reunion! Blessings, Sheila and Russell
An Amazing Weekend
Barn Again was more than we could have hoped for, the true definition of southern hospitality.
From the very beginning we felt cared for by the Bootwrights. Arriving late Mrs. Bootwright called to check on us to ensure our safety in arriving. She had snacks, beverages and breakfast waiting for us. Firewood had been prepared so all we had to do was light the fire. Barn Again was amazingly decorated. Each room was a treat to explore. The work done on this house is true craftsmanship. The bed was amazingly comfortable and made it hard to get going in the morning! It is perfectly located outside of Edenton making the trip to town quick and easy. We can't wait to come back in the spring!
We could not have asked for better guests than y'all! I'm so happy you enjoyed your weekend stay at Barn Again! My goal is to provide the best experience possible for my guests. I want them to feel cared for, and their stay was customized just for them! I look forward to having y'all back soon...thanks so much for the awesome review! Sheila and Russell
Our Happy Place in North Carolina!
As an avid and selective traveler, this home exceeded every point on my checklist. The home is rustic yet elegant at the same time and well planned and built with quality and modern conveniences. It is well furnished in a relaxing décor that immediately lets you forget any stress,
Our every need was anticipated by our thoughtful hosts including Christmas decorations and a wonderful fireplace ready and waiting for our arrival. Sheila had stocked the refrigerator and left us both sweet and savory edibles for snacks. My husband loved the shower and I relaxed in the slipper tub all supplied with carefully selected bath products. Quality linens and comfortable beds delivered restful nights.
There is an outside fire pit and grilling area we did not use on this trip but look forward to its use on our next visit which hopefully will be soon. Staying here is "barefoot elegance" that reminded us of days gone by that we all search to reclaim in our fast paced life. Add the Bootwright's warm welcome to the mix and faith in humanity is restored.
This is a place that brings happy memories and smiles at the thought of returning!
Peggy your review was worth the wait! You and Jim are the guests we hope for, and makes being hosts a joy! Y'all took such loving care of the Barn Again, as if were your own, which is exactly how we want our guests to feel! Providing for and anticipating your every need is what I really love ❤️ I cannot wait until you return so I can try to make you happy and relaxed again!
Barn Again is THE BEST!
Sheila and Russell opened their home and hearts to us with true southern hospitality. Barn Again was so much more than we expected. Our family of eight were all comfortable and relaxed during our stay. Strongly recommend staying here but a fair warning, you'll find it hard to leave. Our most heart filled thanks Sheila and Russell for opening your home to us and making us feel like family. We will cherish the wonderful memories and be returning in the future. The Robinson Family
It was a joy and a Blessing hosting your family! I never realized how many new friends I would made through Barn Again! Way more fun than having horses! I cannot say enough good things about your family and the way y'all left the Barn! I loved our card and the comments in the guest book made me smile! PLEASE come back soon! Thanks so much, Sheila
Fabulous place to stay! Hosts are great too!
"Barn Again" is truly a gem, very well appointed and welcoming! We had everything we needed and then some! The hosts had several goodies for us and special "beverages" too. The beds were comfy and the decor was unique and inviting. I loved the way Sheila renovated and decorated the Barn! I would recommend this property to anyone! We had a great time from beginning to end!
My goal is to make my guests feel as special as I possibly can. I want them to be relaxed, surprised, and most of all happy they made the decision to stay at Barn Again! If I've made it a time for them to remember, then I feel I've done my best! Thanks so much for your review Dana!
