About Buddy and Judy Burch
Floridians Buddy and Judy discovered Edenton quite by accident six years ago while on their way to vacation in Nags Head. It was love at the first sight of Edenton Bay and the outrageously friendly people who live here. They came back to visit Edenton five-times and then purchased their first home here. Three years ago they bought the historic 1775 Millen House on Edenton Bay. The renovation of the courtyard and carriage house has seriously been a labor of love. They are now ready to share it with others. Known around Edenton as, "the porch people," most evenings find them in rocking chairs with their dog Bentley Bo , chatting with passers-by and enjoying the breeze off the water. Southern hospitality is spoken here and the Burch’s invite you “Come rock a spell.”
Buddy and Judy Burch purchased this Guest House in 2015
Why Buddy and Judy Burch chose Edenton
Location! Location! Location! Friendliest people ever!!!!! The history in Edenton is amazing and the waterfront is so beautiful. There are wonderful shops on Broad Street and great places for dinner. People still porch sit, walk dogs, ride bikes and talk with neighbors here. It is charming and quaint and it just felt right.

Weekend anniversary getaway
Lovely home! Beautiful waterfront location. The hosts were so nice and bent over backwards to make sure we had everything we needed for a restful, relaxing stay. We had a great weekend!
Sheer Southern Hospitality in Edenton
Our stay wasn't just a stay, it was an outstanding experience! Our hosts, Judy and Buddy could be found in the definition of true Southern Hospitality. Their cottage was impeccable in its layout, design, and the nuances in every detail flowed seamlessly. They had all the conveniences of home that we needed and more. The accommodations for sleeping, dining, and relaxing were very comfortable. You couldn't help but feel immediately at home! It didn't stop there. Our hosts and their friends were some of the nicest people we ever met in our lives. They were all sincere, inviting, warm, loving, fun, and an absolute hoot! Quite simply we fell in love with all of them.
Their hospitality also included an offer to thee 'Front Porch'. It's an absolute 'must experience'. We also had access to the kayaks, and bikes. We decided on a lovely trip with the kayaks around the Sound, and for us it was simply relaxing and breathtaking.
Edenton is a quaint little town with a tremendous history. Our hosts and their friends shared with us some of the landmarks, great places to eat, can't miss entertainment, and other venues we should take in. These things didn't disappoint either.
If you want relaxing, and an 'at your own pace' getaway then you've got to put Judy & Buddy's on your list of must do's. It was exactly what we needed, and you won't be disappointed. The most sincere way we could summarize our visit is the following:
We loved our charming stay, our loving hosts, and our fabulous new friends so much 'We bought a home in Edenton'! We can't wait to get back...and yes sit on thee 'Front Porch' to celebrate. We hope to see y'all there soon!
