If you march to the beat of a different drum, this is the place for you. Henry David Thoreau would have felt at home here. This N. Durham retreat is a 15 min. drive to downtown and Duke & less than 3 miles from Eno River trails. We are on 1 acre of land surrounded by mature oaks, maples & evergreen trees. The guest house is an open layout ideal for yoga with original woodwork, tile, and art from around the world. There's an equipped kitchen and an energy efficient ductless AC/Heating unit.
