Located in the heart of Eastern North Carolina just outside the town of Goldsboro, this historically significant gem (known locally as "The Farm") blends the ambiance of a comfortable European country estate with interior architecture from an early 19th century plantation house.
The Vernon Guest Wing is approximately 2,000 square feet, completely private, secure and self-contained, with separate entrance and amenities. There are two large bedrooms (one with a king and one with twin beds) appointed with antiques and elegant, yet comfortable furnishings. Each bedroom has a private dressing area and bathroom (one with a large garden tub and one with walk-in shower.) Both have decks that overlook the gardens. (Note, one bedroom is occupied until March 1, but common area spaces are available for events.)
There is also a fully equipped galley kitchen (with small dining table for 4 people) and a large living room ( front parlor, see photos and description below) restored from Vernon Hall Plantation. Upstairs there is the lounge/library equipped with Wi-Fi, flat screen TV, and DVD. There’s also a small office nook in the library with a large glass desk and screen for privacy.
The main room in the Vernon Guest Wing is the "front parlor" which features 12 foot ceilings and a large, elaborate, hand-carved mantel. All of the interior architecture, including the heart of pine flooring, was removed from Vernon Hall (ca. 1819) a plantation house that once stood on the banks of the nearby Neuse River. Described by one architectural historian as the “most unusual room in the South,” the parlor's focal point is immense fireplace with unique designs hand-carved by enslaved artisans. These were featured in Winterthur magazine as examples of early 19th century Southern vernacular interior architecture. This spacious historic parlor is ideal for enjoying wine, "bourbon and branch" or another cocktail; for just reading and relaxing or for small events such as receptions, discussion/study groups, or showers. Just about every imaginable celebration has been held in this parlor for going on two centuries!
The rate quoted online for this accommodation is for up to four people using both bedrooms pictured in this listing. This listing includes exclusive use of the entire wing - galley kitchen, historic front parlor, and loung/library. For reservations for more than 4 people, the Special Offer feature must be used. If you only need one bedroom and are comfortable sharing the common spaces - as in most Bed and Breakfast Inns - please see the individual bedroom listings on this site. If you are interested in renting the front parlor or other areas in the guest wing for an event, please inquire about availability. (Just because a bedroom/s is occupied does not mean that the front parlor, lounge/library and other areas are not available for your event.) While there is ample room in our facility for up to 12 people to sleep, this will require use of roll-outs or air mattresses. The facility is large and we are flexible. Various options can be discussed and made available via the "Special Offer" feature. Once we've negotiated the terms of your special use, your reservation will be secured via the Airbnb Special Offer feature.
This property is a very unique venue and a wonderful location for a variety of events. Guests tell us it is a destination in itself. The grounds include a fenced garden and the surrounding 15 acres provide ample parking sites. The main house includes a versatile "Great Room" that can accommodate dining for up to 64 people in the configuration shown in the photographs.

The meeting room also has a small stage which could serve for ceremonial purposes or as a stage for lectures or "house concerts." Reservations for weddings or other events will involve negotiated terms and and can be secured by way of the Airbnb "Special Offers" feature. We are delighted to discuss your event with you by phone and we can show you the property most days by appointment.

We are southern born and bred, married for 40 years. We love history and local culture, and are looking forward to meeting new people from all over the world. Charlie plays tennis and though he has a bum knee, he is always looking for an opportunity to get on the courts. If you are 4.0 player, he will happily feed the balls to you for a good practice. And if you are not a 4.0 player, he will happily feed the balls to you when his knee starts hurting. Laurel studied in France and can "parlez vous" with you. She is also proficient in Spanish. But her real love is History; she is an expert avocational Historian on American, Ante Bellum history, especially concerning the African American experience.
