This is a private, free-standing 425 sq ft guest cottage in Boylan Heights. Just blocks from downtown sites, it's a short walk to NC State's campus, Red Hat Amphitheater, or the Raleigh Convention Center. Its also an easy ride to Walnut Creek, Meredith, Shaw, and Peace University. You'll have the best of both worlds: easy walking access to downtown while the neighborhood you'll be staying in is green, quiet, peaceful and safe. Frankly, it's really a cool place!
The cottage consists of a large bedroom, a living room area and a full bathroom. The living room area has full seating and the bed is Queen size. There's a refrigerator with drinks, coffee makers and microwave. A large flat screen TV is viewable from both the living room and bedroom area and is equipped with digital antenna and AppleTV. You'll have dedicated free, no hassle parking outside of the rear gate to our property, directly behind the cottage on the private alley. Park, open the gate, walk 50 feet and you're at the door to your lodgings. Super easy.
Downtown venues within walking distance include the Raleigh Convention Center, Red Hat Amphitheater, Duke Energy Center for the Performing Arts, Lincoln Theatre, the State Capital and downtown's numerous restaurants and bars, including all of the Glenwood South area. Poole's Diner, which is on everybody's list of the best restaurants in the States, is an easy 6 block walk, as are a number of other eateries just as good (Raleigh has become a "foodie" mecca). NC State's campus is within walking distance via the Raleigh Greenway Path that runs 150 yards from the cottage door. We are a short ride to the PNC Arena, NC State Fairgrounds, McKimmon Conference and Training Center, Walnut Creek Amphitheater, and Koka Booth Amphitheater.

Private access to the cottage is via an alley that runs behind homes on our street. The guest cottage has its own private parking area in the alley which can accommodate one vehicle easily or two compact cars. This parking area and the gate to our property are well lit and easily accessible. Access from the parking area to the cottage is simple: through the gate, follow the path to the cottage. No key is needed for entry; the cottage door is unlocked/locked via a 4 digit electronic lock. We sign a different code to each guest and will send this to you several days before your stay.
There is no smoking allowed inside, however, there is a smoking/sitting area conveniently located just outside the cottage.
We don't allow pets in the cottage, however, as an FYI we have some very friendly mutts of our own who you may run into as they sun themselves in the backyard. If you would rather not encounter the dogs let us know and we can accommodate you.
We welcome guests from all walks of life.
Smoking is allowed outside of guest cottage
We appreciate the fact that many of our guests prefer our Airbnb because it's private and doesn't require you to interact with us unless you want to. We live in the main residence on the property. You'll access our cottage via a gate in the alley that runs the length of our back yard. As such, you'll be able to come and go as you please without worrying whether you're bothering us. We'll be here should you need us, and are happy to lead you in the right directions should you ask.
