THM is a 4000 sq' 120-year-old historic district home, lovingly rehabbed over 10 years, close to family-friendly activities, public transport, nightlife, city center, Coliseum/Aquatics Center complex (4 miles), HP Furniture Market (18 miles), and airport (11 miles). You'll love the ambiance, comfy beds, kitchen, and high ceilings. Great for couples, business travelers, families with kids, larger groups, and old house lovers. There's plenty of room to spread out and unwind after a hectic day.


The entry hall, front parlor, dining room, eat-in kitchen and study (including new queen sleeper sofa) are located downstairs along with 1.5 bathrooms. Upstairs are the master bedroom with en suite full bath and new Stearns and Foster king-size bed. The other two bedrooms each have a queen bed and there is another full bath off the hallway. Past the bedrooms are a laundry room, library loft, half bath and sun room/sleeping porch which includes a trundle bed with two twin mattresses. The house has great creative vibes and everyone who enters falls in love with it. The original house was built c. 1900. In 1906 an even older house (c. 1820) was moved from somewhere nearby and added onto the back. It encompasses the kitchen and library loft. Tar Heel Manor is located in one of Greensboro's three historic districts - its first streetcar neighborhood and suburb - located on the original route to Lynchburg, VA and Washington D.C. Nearly 80 years ago Ruth Shea turned the house into a travelers' lodge (pre-motel) and divided the largest rooms to create 16 bedrooms. Each contained a sink, bed, dresser, desk, chair, hat rack, and radiator. It later became a boarding house. Although THM has been returned to its essentially 1906 configuration, it has come full circle now as a respite for weary travelers.

Доступно гостям

The whole house is available to guests. Please enjoy full use of it and its gardens, although this is a city lot and the conjoined houses take up most of it so the garden area is quaint. You will be parking behind the house and entering through one of the two back doors. The concrete walkway leads to the service entry back porch entry (trash cans are located beside this porch). Two keys are needed to access this entry. The brick path leads to the patio and side garden entry. Only one key is needed to access this door. You will generally not be using the front entry, although you certainly may. However, it usually remains locked, and other than accessing the front porch or walking out to the Summit Avenue, you will be using one of the two back doors. A key is not provided for the front door locks.

Другие важные подробности

Parking is available behind the house (space for 6 cars off the alley) or on Charter Street. There is no parking on Summit Avenue. Turn onto Charter, then very shortly turn LEFT into the gravel alley at the white picket fence. Park behind the second house from the corner, on your left. You will be facing the back of the house where there are two back doors - one on either side of the house. Your usual entry door will be the one from the concrete pathway. I will send you detailed arrival instructions shortly before your visit.

- There are long stairways and interior balconies. If you have little ones who like to climb, please proceed with caution. I love to have families stay at the house (it's a great educational experience for children) but please take this into consideration.
- No guests under the age of 21 unless accompanied by a parent or other responsible adult.
- Check out is 11:00 a.m. Check in is usually 3:00-4:00 p.m. but I'm flexible
- This is a fabulous historic property. I am looking for guests who will appreciate this wonderful old home that, starting in 1998, was (and continues to be) brought back from the brink of ruin.
- If you would like to know more about the history of this house and its rehab, search online for the March 2013 issue of O'Henry Magazine and read the article "Love at First Sight".

Mindy was excellent. She has done such a fantastic job with this historic home, and has such a passion for sharing its story. We felt very welcome from the start and Mindy was available for anything we needed. There is plenty of parking and plenty of room to spread out, even for a big group like we had. The house is in a great neighborhood and close to just about anything you’d want in Greensboro. Perfect for big groups and those who love historic homes!

Thank you Mindy for a fabulous week at you beautiful Tar Heel Manor! We could not have found a better place in Greensboro for our family to stay for our daughters wedding. The house was just wonderful! Our kids and grandkids all loved it! We loved the family breakfast and dinners we prepared in the beautiful kitchen. Everyone around the dining table eating and talking. Enjoyed playing games with the kids and watching movies. And everyone loved the claw foot tubs! Thanks again for all your hospitality and sharing your magnificent home with us!

Thanks so much, Peggy! I hope your grandkids had a chance to read "The Little House" written by Virginia Lee Burton in the 1940s (on the game shelf under the t.v.). It was my favorite childhood book, and one of the major influences sending me down the path of historic preservation. Wonderful story and would make a great Christmas gift now that they've had this adventure.

We loved every minute at Tar Heel Manor. It is more beautiful than the pictures can even show, and with history and ambiance too. Our family felt so at home for my son's wedding weekend and Sunday morning extended family gathered there for brunch. We spread out into all the rooms and on the porches. Saturday evening after the wedding we had an "after-party" outside on the front porch. You won't regret staying here, especially with all the wonderful touches from Mindy. I hope we can come back one day.

A(URL HIDDEN)'re so sweet! As you know, I'm on instant booking, and I think the house is already booked for next year. I'm so sorry! Someone must know what the homecoming dates are for a few years out. Don't you have an 'in' with A&T to try and find this out? This is crazy! In any case, I hope you'll be back another time. Would love to see you again. -Mindy

Tar Heel Manor is an incredible property with an even more incredible host! Mindy was great at communicating with us and was sure to greet us and show us the ins and outs of the home. She stocked the fridge with snacks and beverages and had donuts, muffins and cookies when we arrived. She is the absolute sweetest and takes so much pride in her home (and for good reason). The home itself was immaculate. Everything was clean and operational. There was plenty of room for all 10 members of my crew and plenty of linens as well. When I tell you I didn't want to leave that house I am not exaggerating. It was so beautiful. Typically I am not a fan of older houses but this was the most wonderful house I've had the pleasure of staying in. We were all in awe of the place. Mindy has restored it so beautifully. The location is a five minute commute to the downtown Greensboro area and has a good bit of parking. If you're headed to Greensboro, staying at Tar Heel Manor is an absolute MUST. I might have to make up an excuse to come back to the area. Thanks so much, Mindy!

Tar Heel Manor is, using a once popular phrase "All That and a bag of chips!" Great location, beautiful décor inside and out. If you're lucky enough to book this beautiful spot, you won't be disappointed.

Do yourself a favor and rent this beautiful historic home. We rented Mindy's Tar Heel Manor for a graduation celebration. We had eight people visiting the home and had much more room than we needed! Throughout our stay, we felt comfortable and at home. The best part of this house is quite possibly the huge airy kitchen. It makes for an ideal gathering spot for the family. Mindy had provided muffins, fruit, doughnuts and water ahead of time. We were blown away by this! When you walk into the house, it smells like a coffee shop/bookstore. We loved the energy of this house. Will definitely be staying again!

I reside 5 miles away with my 93-year-old mother, daughter, and granddaughter in a crazy 4-generation, all-female environment. I am delighted to assist you as much or as little as you need me, and never got off California time so am up late. Please feel free to contact me whenever and as often as you like.

О хозяине Mindy

I am an old-house enthusiast, having rehabbed many in California and North Carolina over the past 40 years. Tar Heel Manor is the largest house and the biggest save of all, as its 4300 square feet had been abandoned for several years before I heard it calling, "Save me!" and bought it. Having been heavily influenced by all things Disney during my formative years (my aunt and uncle both worked at the Disney Studios for over 30 years), I grew up believing everything should look like Disneyland's Main Street.

To me, San Francisco is the most beautiful city in the world. Paris is OK. Loved visiting Ireland but don’t have any desire to return to Hawaii as, although the daughter of two NCAA swimming champs and a strong swimmer myself, I was nearly swept away while on one of my honeymoons.

Five things I can't live without are my two great kids (Daniel and Amanda), and delightful grandchildren (Cecelia, Archer and Oliver). I like to read historical non-fiction. For 20 years I was a community theatre choreographer, so I love musicals and am convinced they produce the best romantic songs. My favorite is ‘Long Before I Knew You’ from ‘Bells Are Ringing’ and fervently believe it should be sung at every wedding. My favorite films are ‘Gone with the Wind’, ‘Fargo’, ‘The Russians Are Coming, the Russians Are Coming’, and anything by Christopher Guest. Favorite foods are artichokes, avocados, clam dip (the 1950s version), and my Polish grandmother’s beef and sauerkraut pierogi, which is to die for.

Everyone loves my house. Brilliant historic architect, John Linn, came up with some great ideas for the renovation. I'd rented it for a few short years to some wonderful women including singer/songwriter, Molly McGinn, and fine artist, Bianca Pagliai and her mom, Sally Pagliai, landscape architect. They loved its creative atmosphere. Since I'm unable to presently live there myself (caring for my elderly mother at her place) I can't wait to share this wonderful old home and its fascinating history with as many folks as possible.
