The Oakwood Inn – Raleigh, NC

139785There may be a number of places to stay in Raleigh nowadays, but did you know that the Oakwood Inn was the first Bed and Breakfast in the area? It is located in a downtown historic neighborhood and has a lot of Victorian character. Inside is six guest rooms for you to choose from. Also, it is within walking distance to many entertainment centers like the NC Museum of History, NC State Capital and Marbles Kids Museum. Here is another house on the Register of Historic Places, but under the name of the Raynor-Stronach House which was built in 1871! It became a Bed and Breakfast when it was sold in 1984, and has been decorated with period antiques so they can still enjoy modern convenience while feeling the romance from the Victorian era.

You can find out more information on their six rooms by looking at their website, as well as more amenities, breakfast details and other places to visit close by!
