Experience the historic charm of Raleigh when you stay at this lovely 2-bedroom, 1.5-bathroom vacation rental apartment filled with antique decor and furnishings. Built in 1904, this cozy getaway offers sleeping arrangements for 4, terrific amenities, and a fantastic location within walking distance of downtown, making it the perfect home base to explore the city!


Master Bedroom: Full Bed | Bedroom 2: 2 Twin Beds

Cruise along the beautiful streets of historic Oakwood to discover this charming apartment situated in a classic Victorian-style home. The 1,800 square feet of well-appointed living space is sure to make you feel right at home, as it boasts high ceilings, hardwood floors, and abundant natural light!

As the chef of your group prepares a meal in the fully equipped kitchen, stir yourself up a refreshing cocktail at the bar stocked with glassware. When dinner is ready, gather in the formal dining area hosting an elegant 4-person table! A plush leather sofa and flat-screen cable TV also adorn this area.

On nice days, grab a novel out of the lengthy bookshelf and lounge on the covered porch for some light reading. If you need to stretch your legs out, take a stroll 2 blocks away to the gorgeous North Carolina Executive Mansion to admire the elaborate woodwork of an architectural masterpiece!

When you retire for the night, retreat to the master bedroom filled with a full bed and bold blue and yellow hues. An additional bedroom hosts 2 cloud-like twin-sized beds, offering a comfortable space for 2 guests to rest their heads.


This amazing apartment is conveniently located in one of Raleigh's oldest neighborhoods, just steps from a mecca of historic sites! Comb the streets to discover the Merrimon-Wynne House, Heck-Andrews House, and Haywood Hall & Gardens.

Only 2 blocks east is the legendary Oakwood Cemetery, known as the final resting place of the Confederate dead. There are many other scenic spots scattered all over the city, such as Moore Square, Oakwood Park, and Mordecai Historic Park.

The city is also home to an array of museums, including the North Carolina Museum of History, North Carolina Museum of Art, and Marble Kids Museum. Explore more of the area when you roam downtown just southwest of the apartment, filled with a plethora of delicious restaurants, boutique shops, and buzzing bars!

With over 150 restaurants in the downtown Raleigh area, take a break from cooking and venture out to enjoy some local favorites! Dine at one of the 4-star restaurants in the area including Gravy, Sitti and Bida Manda. Some other delicious cuisine can be found at Side Street Cafe, the Brewerks Cafe, The Oakwood Cafe, Gringo’s Mexican Restaurant, or The station at Person Street.

This was a Real Gem

  • 5 of 5

We were in the middle of the historical homes/buildings in Raleigh. Clean, conveinant, and nicely decorated. The owner is so friendly and helpful! We walked a couple blocks to a great place for breakfast. One day we walked to the museum. We plan to stay there again the next time we are visiting family.

I rented this little treasure for family from out of town. They loved the space, the location to downtown and the history of the neighborhood. Lauren was the perfect host...never intrusive but always available.

A very comfortable and cozy place to come “home” to.

Thank you, Lauren!
