The Chesnutt

A guest favorite, The Chesnutt feels like your new home away from home.  Overlooking the botanical grounds of the B&B, the room is appointed with a beautiful antique wardrobe fresh white tiled corner shower. 


The original wavy glass windows are the real show stopper here and can be enjoyed best from the comfort of the King size bed. Architectural details such as the original (decorative) fireplace tie into the house's history.  

The Chesnutt 

Local History:

The Chesnutt room is named for Charles Waddell Chesnutt (1858-1932), the first African-American author to receive widespread critical acclaim who called Fayetteville home. Chesnutt was the principal of a nearby high school during his time in Fayetteville. Browse an anthology of his literary works as you soak in the greenery of the giant trees just outside the wall of windows.   


With a plush King size bed and beautiful antique wardrobe, the Chesnutt room has a beautiful private en-suite bathroom with a tiled corner shower and toilet. Your stay includes luxury toiletries and waffle knit bathrobes to enjoy at the Inn. The unique in-room vanity is to the left of the original decorative (non-functional) fireplace.

Located on the second floor, the Chesnutt Room is at the back of the house furthest from Hay Street for a quieter stay and overlooks the flower farm at the back of the property. Blackout curtains can be pulled closed for total relaxation.  

Breakfast is included.

We offer a seated breakfast at 8:30 AM in the dining room or the option of a continental to-go breakfast available at your convenience with fruit, yogurt, boiled eggs and baked goods we make with seasonal ingredients.

Coffee and hot tea are plentifully available 24/7 at coffee bars throughout the house.
